What’s the best pair of waterproof trousers for trail and ultra runners this year? Here I have reviewed 5 from some of the major brands including Inov-8, Montane, Decathlon (Kalenji Evadict), OMM, Ultimate Direction, with prices ranging from £35 – £120. Scroll down for links to buy.

As with all the gear I test on my channel these waterproof trousers/pants were sent to me by the brands, but they have absolutely no control over what I say in this review, as hopefully you can tell by my honest but constructive comments. 

Tell me in the comments below which waterproof trousers/pants you currently like best!
