Oxford Stormseal All Weather Over Trousers - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Not that dry
I have a couple of issues with these trousers; 1/ they leak around the crotch area which is a tad annoying and 2/ zipping up the sides is a nightmare, with the inner material often getting caught in the zip. Sizewise, I went one up and they just about fit.
Stormseals serious test.
Have used these over leathers twice in the last 3 days on a Norwegian tour. Safe to say it rains a lot there. On the first deluge they were ok and a wet backside was down to me. Second time having learnt the lessons of the day before I still ended up wet. I think it got in via the high zips as there are no holes and the waistband is dry. They were on the right way round! In fairnest both trips were over 300 km and it rained all the time.
So far so very good
Late November/ early Dec and there has been plenty of rain to test these on my daily commute. Well worth the money to be kept dry, and thus warmer. Not sure that there is enough width in the leg to be able to pull over the top of a boot, but that's not troubling me at the moment. Light weight, but strong construction.
Sturdy waterproof trousers
I am normally a size 12 in trousers and ordered the L Stormseal trousers so that they wouldn't be too tight and I could wear jeans underneath. The L trousers drowned me though and I immediately exchanged them for S, which fit very well and still give me room to wear layers underneath. The waist is quite tightly fitted and the legs are very loose so they are comfortable and they kept me completely dry the first time I wore them in the rain. I like the reflective patches on the ankles and they are quite warm as well, as they have an inner layer as well as the waterproof layer.
Got the matching set, jacket and trousers to put in bag in case of rain. They didn't flap in the wind, kept me dry and warm. I bought my actual size, was worried my jacket and Kevlar jeans wouldn't fit inside but they did. Like the full length zips, great when you're in a hurry.
Very very good
Rode through a prolonged rain storm in the Lake District and these Oxford Stormseal kept me dry. Decent length when sitting on bike. Order your actual size as it appears that it's tailored to go over ( in my case ) Medium sized biking jeans. Zips run up leg to waist band. Can get these on reasonably easily with boots on. Buy these.
