MVP is the British Army equivalent to Gore-Tex. It has exactly the same qualities: waterproof, but still breathable to a degree, unlike rubber. These are the trousers of the MVP uniform.

The trousers are simple overtrousers meant only to protect from rain and wind, not offer insulation or carrying capacity. Packs small, weighs almost nothing. If you are after a pair of low-cost durable no-nonsense GTX pants, these are the ticket. No big loss if they get damaged, this is a BIG plus in surplus. Of course being army issue stuff they are pretty durable to begin with.

A note about the membrane. While it's true the MVP (Moisture Vapour Permeable) membrane lets some moisture out just like Gore-Tex, it's not a magic do-it-all fabric. It's best used as rainwear, or as a windproof layer in stationary use. In heavy activity you will likely get wet from the inside.

We occasionally get trousers with side zippers. These are listed separately on the drop-down box when available. These don't have an elastic waist, but do have drawcord tightening.


Please note that clothes with a membrane require care to retain their waterproof properties. Washing should be done in lukewarm water, by hand with a special detergent. Periodic waterproofing treatment is recommended by washing in, spraying on, or both.


First leg inseam, then waist circumference in centimetres. The sizes run large, as the trousers are supposed to be used over everything else. So if your waist is about 84 cm, pick that size of the trousers and you get a good fit. The suitable leg inseam is easy to find out - just measure the distance from the crotch to the leg cuff of a pair that you already have.

Ordered the trousers with side zippers - arrived in like-new condition; the only sign of usage being a faded name inside (oddly, still having a manufacturer tag attached). The 80/88 size was perfect, fitting easily over (actual measurements) 34 waist, 32 inseam trousers without binding at all.

I've opted for the zipper version. these are great (shape, condition and fit) but I can only give 4 stars instead of 5 because of the velcro closure on the 'fly'. this will never hold out any rain when I use these on my motorcycle in wet weather. otherwise this is a good value for money buy.

I purchased the zipper variant of these pants and they are beyond amazing. I've worn them for weather ranging from a light drizzle to a torrential downpour. Kept me dry all day long. These are amazing for snow as well!

Tuli sivuvetoketjulla, joista toinen ei ole ihan priima. Samoin tarranauhat ei ole kovin ärhäkät. Koko 104 istuu mainiosti persevälle naiselle ( vy 95, ly 118), joten siskot, tilatkaa rohkeasti! Varmasti hintansa haukkuvat.

The size tag was worn off of pair I ordered so I may not have gotten the correct size but the 80/88 was way too small for a 34 waist. Not sure if it was an error or if they just fit really really Small. Otherwise the overall condition was excellent. I would recommend these if you can get the correct fit. Order a larger size.

(EDIT) I ordered a second pair of these in 70/96 and they're still too small to wear over other layers especially in winter. These pants run extremely small. Also they have a large rip in the crotch which I will have to fix in order for them to be used. Overall - Im not impressed with these at all.

Housut ovat hyvät, sitä en moiti! Mutta kerrankin enklannin sotalaitosvaatetoimittajan merkintä oli luotettava, koko 96 on koko ysikuus, ei senttiäkään yli. Ei puhettakaan, että alle mitään kalsaria paksumpaa saisi, siis ei piiruakaan varaa leveyssuunnassa. Ei kyllä pituudessakaan, se on jämptisti se mitä lapussa lukee. Olisi pitänyt tavalliseen tapaan ottaa kymmenen senttiä isot, mutta vakuutuin erheellisesti tuoteselosteesta. Mutta se hopeareunus! Koska hyvät, ei palauteta vaikkei mahu, annetaan lapselle, mopohousuiksi kylmille. Mahtuivat tytölle, hyvä niin. Ja kelpasivat. Mutta tuotekuvauksesta reklamaatio ynnä parin pinnan pudotus. Harmi. Hyvät pökät...
