Berghaus Men's Paclite Gore-Tex Waterproof Overtrousers
Rarely this cheap , good reviews.
Probably one of those fleeting Amazon deals that change when many people visit the page but good while it lasts

£71 for medium regular leg so if you can get your size it's a great deal!

Managed to get my size on Amazon Prime day for £50.. Great waterproof over trousers and probably the lightest 3/4 zip ones around which helps when you have hiking boots one...
Highly recommended these, I have the jacket and trousers for years. Trousers could do with bring replaced as patches all over bum of them from scrambles and slips. Fortunately still doing the job so not ready for new ones yet both my jacket and trousers came with a handy wee mesh stuff bag, not sure if they do now

Are you saying that Berghaus is now owned by Mike Ashley?


First I've heard of it, but the brand is doomed if so! Surely they are successful enough not to need to sell out?

I think you are mixing Berghaus up with Karrimor which Ashley owns.
Berghaus used to be made in Newcastle because I've got a jacket I bet it's not made there now Ashley just buys the name off the creditors slazenger etc.

I can't see anywhere that Ashley owns the Berghaus name?

Sorry, but that is simply not true. They are part of the pentland group of companies.

Just make it up as you go along' I bet'
These are waterproof overtrousers with a 3/4 length zip so you can put them on/off without removing shoes/boots.
The zips are double ended so you can get thigh ventilation in drippy weather or when walking through wet grass.
They're also windproof, so have used these down to -25C in Alpine winter, also in winds over 80mph.
Zips seem waterproof and long-lasting, have tabs so can be used with heavy gloves.
Remember you'll need gaiters in heavy weather too.
Cut is quite close-fitting - they don't flap in high wind.
Black is a great colour for waterproofs - any sun dries the surface which improves breathability.

I've had a pair of these for 12 years and must have used them 200+ times. They're about the best waterproof trousers I know.
They pack small and light and go everywhere with me - also use them for shopping in pouring rain/commuting etc.
Yes, they rustle slightly and aren't as durable as some materials so be careful if sitting on gritstone, sliding, or scrambling.
They seem to shrug off brambles and thorn bushes though.
Mine have a few small holes which I've patched with gaffer tape on the inside. It sticks fine.
The sizing is quite slim - I'm thin and take a Medium, so if you're carrying, go Large or bigger.
No pockets - keeps it light and waterproof.
Easy to clean/reproof - non-detergent wash then Nikwax.

Paid £100 for them back in the day, so happy to snaffle a second pair at this price - thanks OP.
