Berghaus Men's Drift Full Zip Overtrouser
Wore these for the first time for a walk up Pen y Fan on St David's Day - the weather was so bad we had to turn back around two thirds of the way there. The forecast was for bursts of 30-40mph winds with some gusts of more than 70mph and intermittent rain. The reality was almost constant rain, then horizontal snow & hail and wind strong enough to nearly blow us over (four 'no longer as light as we once were' men) even when we weren't on top of a ridge.
Got back to the bottom and most of my walking trousers were bone-dry, with the slightest bit of dampness on part of my calves, which I think were a result of trousers getting wet as I put on the overtrousers (though it could have been condensation but if so I'd have expected it to be all over my legs).
As per my summary, very pleased with a cracking pair of waterproofs.

Great Value Waterproofs
These Berghaus waterproof trousers were on special offer and with a 3 Peaks Challenge looming in the summer I wantedto purchase and 'road test' my equipment well in advance. The trousers are excllent providing fantastic waterproofing whilst not being uncomfortable. I have had inferior trousers in the past whick leaked and were really hot when worn over an extended period of time. The full length zips are also a great feature making the trousers easy to get on in a downpour without hopping around trying to pull them over my boots. Great value and top quality.

This product is great
Good waterproofing. Really easy on and off as full zips both sides. Bought for winter mountaineering so that was a must. Great product, does what it says on the tin really.

Great trousers. Would have got 5/5 if they had pockets.
