Excellent Waterproof Breathable Trousers, 07 April 2013
By MickScan (Bournemouth)
I've used these waterproof trousers for over ten years now. Only had to replace the first pair because they had been worn lots and lots for cycling and trekking in all sorts of weather up and down mountains, till finally the fibers of the material finally gave out and would no longer work with the waterproofing treatment. The zips on the sides are easily operated, so long as they don't get caked in mud, allowing you to easily put them on or take them off. (suggest gaiters if it's wet and muddy to avoid mud getting into the zip system.) Only trouble I had with them is over heating at the top of the insides of the legs, when walking long distances ie over 20 miles with them on over trousers. Better to take off trousers and just put on the Paclite Trousers than over heat! They are absolutely fine on their own.

these are the best overtrousers i have ever had. they have kept out the worst possibe rain and wind ever aswell as keeping you cool and letting out the sweat. they also are very lightweight and come with there own mesh bag to put thm in. over all these are perfect for hill walkers that want good quality over trousers to keep the legs dry and virtualy sweat free all day on the hills. (well done berghaus, once again).
Berghaus Paclite Mens Waterproof Trousers, 12 August 2011

These are extremely light (224g including pack-bag) that pack away to a snowball size. They are easy to slip-on, on the move, as the 3/4 zips enable my size 11 walking boots plenty of room to get through and excellent ventilation when the going gets tough and the weather warm and very wet. I hardly notice I've got them on...A damp cloth removes muddy deposits easily, to return them to good as new. Only negative is that they have no pockets and access to inner trouser pockets is a little awkward .

They seem to cost alot but boy are they worth it. They're sooo light and can fit in a pocket!
I have worn mine a number of times in bad weather on moor and mountain and they've not let me down. Having the 3/4 zip on the leg elps so much getting on over boots quickly.
Does exactly what it says on the tin (Paclite), 26 January 2010

I’m looking to complete the West Highland Way sometime in May. I tried to complete the walk last year but was forced to pull out half way through due to my walking partner’s knee injury. We learned the hard way that excess weight should be avoided at all costs. I was attracted to these Paclite Gore-tex trousers exactly for that reason. They fold away into a tiny palm of the hand sized package that ways next to nothing. I’ve yet to try them in rainy conditions, however, having worn them in the recent snowy weather they performed superbly. Extremely waterproof, reasonably priced, small pack size and light, highly recommended.
