A good pair of outdoor trousers is another essential item in your outdoor clothing, whether it is just for lounging around outside or for more active outdoor interests like hunting, shooting, fishing, hiking and walking.
Waterproof Trousers for Hunting, Shooting and Fishing
There is a great range of waterproof trousers specially designed for outdoor activities like fishing, shooting and hunting. Many are also breathable, allowing sweat to pass through the fabric and so help keep you dry and comfortable.
These include the Jack Pyke Hunter Trousers which are ideal for hunting and fishing in the English countryside, and the Deerhunter Rusky trousers which are incredibly warm and rated as suitable for temperatures as low as -30ºc.
For hunting and stalking, you may want to look for trousers (and jackets) made in a 'stealth' material to keep noise to an absolute minimum.
Reinforcing in high wear areas like the knees and crotch may be worth considering as well.
For some people, zips at the ankles will be an important requirement to allow the trousers to be slipped on or off without removing your shoes or boots.
Over-Trousers & Chaps
You may also want to consider the range of Chaps and Over-Trousers which are also available and which are designed to protect you and your normal trousers from rain, wet grass, and brambles.
