All Weather Pants
These waterproofs are brilliant, they don't rustle when you walk, they fit well,I'm 5ft 6 size 8 and I went for a xs size . They keep the rain out and keep you warm without making you sweat. I've used them for dog walking when it rains, I will also use them for cycling.

simply perfect all weather trousers
I was so very sad to have to send these back. They were far too long. I made enquiries about shortening the length but too complicated with velcro fastening and zips at the ankle. Wanted them for walking along the beach in the winter months. PLEASE, PLEASE a short length for us girlies not blessed with long legs.

Great all-weather trousers
I ordered the small and medium in these trousers. I would usually go for a small, bu there was very little difference in the sizes and as i would probably be wearing a layer underneath I opted for the medium.
They feel good quality and durable and look good too. They are comfortable to wear, I have purchased them mainly for my cycle commute.
The 2 pairs that I ordered did have different coloured tabs on the zips and I am not sure why. Hopefully I haven't ended up with prior season stock, as I can see that there have been improvements this year.

Great all-weather, all-activity trousers!
I bought these trousers for wet-weather cycling but they're so light and versatile I will use them for all sorts of activities in rainy, muddy and/or windy weather. The fit is great, I got a small and they're fairly generous which will suit me well in the winter because I could wear cycling gear or thermals underneath but the soft, lightweight fabric keeps them from looking bulky. The zips down the side and adjustable band at the bottom are bike and hike- friendly! The fabric is extremely flexible but durable, unlike any other waterproof trousers I've worn before. Water and mud just bounces off them....This is a winter must-have for all year round outsiders like me!

Great outdoor training waterproof trousers
Love the slightly stretchy fabric enabling freedom of movement. Zip openings mean they're easy to get on and off over trainers. Styling means they feel sexier than standard waterproofs.

One of the best presents I have ever received.
I use them mainly for cycling to work. They keep me dry when it is raining but I mainly love them because of the great fabric which does not make you sweat - who hasn't had a cheap pair of waterproofs and the trousers were wetter on the inside than the outside? Not with these great trousers.
I am got them in XS (usually I am an S) and they are perfect. Great fit. Not your usual waterproofs which make you look ridiculous, so you can leave them on when you pop into the shop but the long zip also makes it easy to take them on and off when you have got shoes on.
Love the velcro on the bottom, so the trousers don't get caught in the chain.
I also used them for walking in with leggings underneath. Really comfortable.
I don't have anything negative to say about them. Worth every penny (even better when you get them as a present)

Odd fitting - definitely not for shorter legs
I really wanted to love these - great idea. However the sizing was way off for me. High wasted and if I wanted to have the knee covering in the correct place I would have had to hike the waistband up to my rib cage. Perhaps a petite version might be better. I am 5" 6', not that short, but legs on the shorter side...

Finally - flattering waterproof trousers
At long last a pair of flattering water proof trousers that actually look good and don't make you look like a Michelin man! They are completely waterproof and well worth the money. Whether you're doing boot camp or just walking the dog, these are a must have for all ladies who are doing any outdoor activity, especially with the UK weather.

Wet and cold weather
These trousers are fab! They are lightweight and roll down to pack away easily into a small bag so are perfect for protecting from unexpected rain. I use mine as a way of keeping warm as well as staying dry.
In terms of fit, because of the tabs on the waist you can achieve a good fit but for me they are a little too roomy to start with and look a little odd on me when i am standing up. I am not that bothered about that however and I think their features more than outweigh this.
As with a lot of SB products, a lot of thought has gone into these trousers. The zip which runs 2/3 of the way up each leg is great. The zip can be opened/closed from the bottom or the top. This means that you can allow a bit of increased ventilation around the quads whilst cycling without having material flapping around the chain. You can also unzip them from the bottom which allows not only ventilation but makes it easy to take the trousers on and off without removing your shoes. They also have velcro on the bottom to bring the trousers in around the ankle, again to avoid any entanglement with the chain. I also really like the reinforced knees, it gives the trousers a bit of structure.
It would be great if they had discreet iluminous patches/stripes to make us more visible at night time which is when I wear mine for warmth.

Great fit and features, shame they aren't waterproof
I tried to write a review of these trousers over a year ago, when I first bought them (Sept 2012) but the review was 'rejected' - so trying again!
I'm actually on my second pair of All Weather Trousers. The inner lining of the first pair disintegrated after wearing them only a couple of times.
It took a little while but SB replaced them without much of a problem.
This second pair are beginning to go the same way, so it seems they just aren't hardy enough for long walks or cycling in... which is a shame, because they fit well, look good and have really nice features!
If you're looking for something to walk the dog in the damp - they will probably be fine.
