Warm Waterproof Trousers

It really depends on the weather I think.
I generally wear cargo type trousers if it's dry, thinner Craghopper style if warm and those + waterproofs if wet. If cold and wet then ski trousers. If very cold, thermals + ski trousers.
Aye, it depends on your environment. Gaiters are another factor, if you're wearing them and a long fouly then you're only exposed for a fairly short part of your body. I guess it comes down to having the options.

My berghaus event fabric over trousers have full length side zips and vented pockets and can be taken off/put on in about 30 seconds. They have pass though zipped pockets which work as vents and a vents as well so don’t get too hot but do keep you dry.

craghopper summer kiwi trousers are breathable and dry really quickly if they do get wet and I could wear a base layer under them if I wanted.

Running leggings take up no room, are warm and can be worn as spare trousers in camp either on their own or under the over trousers if it’s wet. They are also comfy to sleep in if it’s a bit chilly.

I go with the Craghoppers as well. For winter climbing and camping I wear a 25-year-old pair of Pearl Izumi trousers underneath them (cycling trousers), they are microfleece and waterproof and even camping at -5C I've been comfortable enough, I look like Max Wall with them on hence why they're underneath. ;) I've got a £10 pair of zip-off Gelert overtrousers if it gets really wet and they've served me well despite the price (bit bulky). I want to buy new trousers, but the gear I've got has never been a problem to need solving.

You also get them on wish list and Vova. Vova is through papal so there’s a bit of security ... not to sure on wish?

Probably use the same site as @Matt as his trousers turned up all right 👍

Joom does take Paypal btw and I've ordered plenty from there before. Average delivery has been 23 days from China.
