Reviewed by Luca Malatacca (Preston ) - 6th Apr, 2017Staff reviewKarakoramThese are by far the best waterproof trousers I have ever owned! Naturally with Mountain Equipment, they are packed with technical features! The braces allows for the trousers to sit above the boot and keeps the trousers firm in place, rather then slipping under your boot. This makes the fit all the more better! With the trousers sitting higher, they've also added scuff pads at the ankle to protect against crampons. Having torn more than one pair of trousers with crampons, this is an essential feature. Lastly and this can't be understated, the trousers look great!
