Trousers of the current issue German Bundeswehr rainsuit. Very simple and sensible hardshell overtrousers to wear when it's wet and nasty.

All in all a very simple pair of "GTX" trousers with a couple of handy features for use in the field:

  • Hook 'n' loop adjustment on the waist.
  • Zipper fly.
  • Fixed suspenders with low profile adjustment buckles.
  • Zippered legs for ease of donning with boots on.
  • Cut with generous clothing allowance!

Waterproof membrane

Made of Gore-Tex or Sympatex, this membrane "breathes"; it lets moisture out, keeping the wearer dry. Microscopic holes in the membrane let water vapour pass through, but are too small for liquid water to do the same (although in the case of Sympatex the mechanism is somewhat different). However, no rainsuit breathes as well as regular non-rainwear. For this reason they're still best reserved for wet and nasty weather or blocking the wind in light activity.

On the very top there is (or has been) a DWR coating with a job of blocking most of the water before it even touches the membrane.

Size info

First the German size, then these converted to comparable easy size and user's recommended waist in centimetres. As these is meant to be worn over everything else, they are sized accordingly - by picking your own size you should have plenty of room for extra clothing.

The length sizes are all the same, and are good for "normal" people (about 170-180 cm), but this leaves some room to play; rain trousers don't need to extend all the way to the floor level.

Genuine BW issue

In used but perfectly serviceable condition. The DWR coating on the top of the fabric may have faded with time, but it can be revived with standard wet blocking sprays.

Lightweight, simple, and effective!
One thing to note, the legs on these are relatively short.

Was expecting this to weigh a lot more than it does, same for the jacket. Can't beat the price or the quality, looks unused, folds are still crisp. Good stuff.

A good waterproof product for the price. As noted, legs are a little on the short side. Zippers on the legs are very light duty and failed almost immediately for me on first use - pants still work fine, but leave you with a bell bottom look unless you pin/tie them up somehow.

Looks unused to me.
Easy to put on with boots and great fit and a decent set of suspenders.
Now I look forward to rain!
