I took receipt of a pair of the above today from mmbeetle (top guy to deal with I might add).
the trousers claim to be totally waterproof with their deertex membrane and have fully taped seams throughout, coupled with taped zips so I was expecting promising things.....
took them out for their first outing after a good shower this evening, and was planning to reccy a new bit of ground which was covered in knee high bracken and wet grass, a good test of any waterproof claims.
well, on returning to the truck I was starting to feel cool/clammy on the inside of the legs, could be just the feeling of cooler fabric on my legs coupled with a bit of sweat I thought.....
Got home and took them off, turned them inside out and this is what I could see:Attachment 45793
Every taped seam soaked, but evidently in patches showing some areas to be dry,
how disappointing, yet another false promise if being kept dry. Such a shame as the trousers are lovely, comfortable, silent, practical, I didn't even cook in them so they are even relatively breathable, just not waterproof, I shall see what deerhunter have to say on the matter.
see end post.......tested and proved.
