rustle, tear, leak in prolonged use
These are the over trousers i use , however I cant hand on heart reccomend them. I generally dont wear waterproof over trousers, prefering to wear trousers that try out and just to get wet as necessary.
However for extreme conditions I pack a set of these in the bag as they fold up small , they are also extremly cheap which is a good thing as I tend to destroy them by crawling arround stalking wildlife.
Unless you move very carefully they rustle , and the knees tend to tear and fray.
on the whole these cannot be said to be all that , but if you want a very cheap pair for occasional wear you could do worse
