I hate waterproof trousers as they are uncomfortable and sweaty and horrible to run in but the kit list says I have to have them and my old ones are falling to bits.
The Montane Atomic DT ones look good and they sound very breathable which would be nice.
Does anyone have experience of them or another recommendation?
ThanksPosted 7 years agobeamersSubscriber
Goretex ex-army ones?
Not for the OMM. They are far too big and heavy, especially for a “just in case” piece of kit.
(That’s it, I’ve gone and done it now)
The only time that I have worn my waterproof over trousers (even when its been hosing it down) is in the tent on Sat night over a dry pair of running tights. Toasty warm.Posted 7 years agoslugwashMember
I’m taking an old pair of Freestyle goretex cycling trousers but I’d just buy a pair of cheap water proof trousers with taped seams if I didn’t have anything else ‘cos ther’e no way I’m going to be running in them. They’re just there to fufil the obligatory kit list and wear at the overnight camp when I’m sitting around if it’s wet or I’m cold.

PS: Are space blankets or pertex bivi bags acceptable as survival bags under the OMM rules?Posted 7 years agolazlo53Member
I don’t think space blankets are allowed slug, I think it has to be a full bag but I’ll check, The big thing about the Kamleika’s is that they’re a bit like running in tracksters so you can save your actual tracksters for the mid-point when it usually is wet and coldPosted 7 years ago

I’ve always taken a space blanket in the past but looking at the mandatory kit list it says Survival Bag. Is that a change to previous years?
No mention is made about space blankets not being allowed though.
Edit – Having looked at the OMM forum it would appear that blankets are out and bags are in.Posted 7 years ago
