which waterproof shorts?
I wore through the seat of a pair of Endura eVent 3/4s – forgotten what they're called – in less than a year of Peak use, and quite occasional Peak use at that. Was talking to someone yesterday who'd done the same to a pair of Gore waterproof shorts. Less than impressed, though while they worked, they were pretty good. 😉Posted 8 years ago

The Attacks 3/4s are great with 3/4 or full length tights with normal length lycra inner the hem rubs on my knees giving me sores (especially when combined with grit). They make a bit of noise too if that bothers you.
I tried some altura attack 3/4 but felt too narrow for knee pads.
Kyle straits just fitted under my large shorts.Posted 8 years agochakapingSubscriber
I have Endura eVent 3/4s – and they were perfect – until the outer layer started to peel away on the bum after a while.
New pair under warranty from Swinnertons, who have always been great at replacing Endura things without question when they've fallen apart.
Not worn them again yet though, because it's been so dry!Posted 8 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Desert Storm camo goretex trousers just arrived on my desk.
Now, tempting as it it to parade around the office in them I'll wait till the privacy of home.
Any of you having bought & cut-off these trousers…do you get a hem sewn around the cuts ?Posted 8 years ago

For those in London looking for the army surplus gore-tex trousers, there's a nice bloke called Howard who runs 'Camping and Outdoors' on The Cut – same side as the Evans shop, opposite the Young Vic theatre. I bought some last night for £20…alright not as cheap as ebay, but he's very patient and let's you try different sizes so you get what you need rather than the pot luck of the web. He's also got some heavier weight dutch ones which he sells a lot to the couriers for £30 ish.Posted 8 years ago
