A superb value fully waterproof and breathable pair of trousers. With all the features you would expect on a high quality garment, but at a fraction of the price. This has rapidly become one of our best sellers.
Ab-Tex is a waterproof/breathable coating that has been specially developed for garments by leading manufacturers of outdoor pursuits. Ab-Tex fabric ensures a very high level of waterproofing while maintaining an excellent breathability rating that will guarantee protection from most weather conditions and keep you warm, dry and comfortable. Ab-tex fabric works by uniting molecules from various compounds to form a membrane that allows moisture to evaporate while at the same time acting as an impenetrable barrier to rain.

Q & A's
Q & A's
Q: How much do they weigh?
A: It will depend on the size, but a mid-range size large weighs 446g.
Q: Could I wear these as over trousers
A: Yes, they are designed to be worn over other trousers.
Q: Do these trousers have a inside linning?
A: No, they are a single layer of waterproof breathable material.
Q: I'm interested in your waterproof trousers, can you please tell me if you think they would be suitable for me? I go beating on a local shoot and have to walk through kale which is up to my waist, and generally soaking wet from the rain! I have tried several over trousers of my own but just get completely soaked, then have to stay soaked for the rest of the day! What do you think?
A: Well, the only way water is going to get underneath these trousers is if it comes over the waist or under the ankles, but if they're pulled in tight then this shouldn't be a problem. They are breathable too so any sweat will be able to escape through the material.
Q: Is this product material or plastic based. I'm going to be helping clear gorse and shrub and wonder if the product is reasonably tear resistant. Thanks
A: These do have a material feel to them and are made from Ab-Tex which works just the same as Gore-Tex making them 100% waterproof and breathable. These are quite hard wearing and should be quite suitable.
Q: Are these more waterproof than hi vis waterproofs and similar to the gortex ones?
A: These are 100% waterproof and also breathable, so very similar to gore-tex material.
Q: Do they have a fly zip?
A: They don't have any fly at all, but do have an elasticated waist with a drawcord which can easily be released.
Q: How breathable are these trousers? Do they make the wearer sweat?
A: These are fully breathable, allowing sweat vapour to escape while blocking water from entering.
Q: 2xl size 30" to 42" waist. How can that be?
A: The waist is elasticated so it fits a range of sizes.
Q: How waterproof are these? Would they keep the wearer dry during a prolonged downpour of heavy rain?
A: Yes, these are 100% waterproof.
Q: I was just wondering if your 'leg measurement' is inside leg, or total hip to ankle length?
A: They are inside length.
Q: Do these trousers provide any kind of warmth or are they simply waterproof?
A: No they are designed as a waterproof outer layer, so you would generally wear a warmer mid-layer garment underneath them.

Split at seams
After wearing these over trousers five times over wellington,s the seams have failed, were they rub on top of boot , in my opinion they should have lasted longer,i was really pleased with them at first , but now very disappointed , if your wearing them with walking boots I think they may last longer
Pros: Lightweight , comfortable
Cons: Seams split after little use
Sizing: Feels about right
Would recommend: No

You know those waterproof pants they sell in the walking shops that cost between 10 and 35? Well these are nothing like those flimsy,thin sweaty pants. These are at least four times as thick,pack down to around the same the same size and are completely water proof. They are stronger and better in every-way and most importantly they breath so you don't get sweaty in them. I'm now saving for the jacket.
Pros: Well made, Strong, 100% water proof
Cons: none
Sizing: Feels about right
Would recommend: Yes

Keep dry
Fine pair of waterproof trousers. Only grumble is the sizing. I'm not exactly big but I purchased a large size to accommodate clothing underneath. They fit but with little room to spare. Otherwise a good product and the breath well when working in the rain.
Pros: Everthing but the size
Cons: Sizing
Sizing: Feels small
Would recommend: Yes

Worth every penny
I do a lot of general walking and also a great deal of hill walking and as I live in Scotland, you can imagine the extreme winds and heavy rain that we get on a regular basis. I was a bit unsure because they are described as Ab-Tex not Gore-Tex but I have to say they are superb. I have been out in some terrible conditions and several times in heavy downpours and absolutely nothing got through. Will definitely go for these again as they are by far the best I've tried in all the years I've been walking. Very impressed!
Pros: Simple elasticated waist, Available in different colours, Completely waterproof
Cons: none
Sizing: Feels about right
Would recommend: Yes

Leak Through Pockets
Used them for motorcycling. When I first got them I did notice that the flaps over the hip pockets were back to front, i.e. exposed the zips to the front. Needless to say, the first time I wore them in a bit of rain, the flaps actually created a water trap resulting in water leaking through the zips, and wet trousers underneath. I suspect this is a design or manufacturing fault, but M&G are having none of it. So BEWARE if you plan to wear them on your motor bike or scooter!! In my view, didn't do what they said on the tin. Shame really, bought other stuff from M&G that's been great.
Pros: Waterproof everywhere BUT pocket
Cons: Pockets leak through zips
Sizing: Feels about right
Would recommend: No
Follow-up by Meanandgreen: Sorry to hear they didn't stand up to the rigours of motorbiking, Paul. We've sold hundreds of pairs of these and no-one has ever commented on the pockets before, although most people would be using them for walking rather than motorbiking.
