What over trousers?

Postby Mlomas » Sat Oct 31, 2015 10:01 am

I've recently just got an Ultimate Direction vest and there isn't as much room in it as my previous innov8 bag. The pair of waterproof trousers I pack when the race dictates you need to carry them are an old pair of golf trousers, I'm loathed to spend money on something I don't want to wear unless of an emergency but now these trousers don't fit in my bag I think I need to get some that do.

What does everyone pack as a the lower part of a 'waterproof whole body cover' as set out by the FRA http://fellrunner.org.uk/pdf/committee/ ... ipment.pdf

Thanks
Michael

I carry a pair of Inov-8 Racepant 150s which are quite small and light. Think of it as an insurance policy, hopefully I'll never need to wear them in anger but if I do then I'd like them to do the job well.

I have a 'mac in a sac' pair of overtrousers. Cheap and very light. I have never worn them for running, but made good use of them whilst cycling about in Holland (lycra-free zone) and they kept my jeans dry.

+1 for the Regatta's. Got mine in Cotswold Outdoors for £12, taped seams so they meet the kit requirements.

They size up pretty big, i'm 6'2" and bought the small as the medium & large were hugely baggy, and they're still just about the right length, so might be worth trying on first rather than buying online?

Thanks for the responses and the sizing info FF, regattas sounds like a good bet, cheap and lightweight.
