Keela Rainlife 5000 over trouser review

The first thing the we noticed about these over trousers was the feel of the materials used. Both the outer shell and inner lining have a reassuring quality about them. 

Keela Rainlife Trousers 

We're told by Keela that the outer shell has a  texturised waterproof hydrophilic coating! What we know is that they are definitely waterproof having suffered a battering in the South West of the UK throughout last winter.

They are definitely breathable with no condensation build up on the inner layer at any time that we have had occasion to wear them.

And they are definitely windproof having worn them with both walking trousers and shorts we have remained comfortable and protected at all times.

The button studs, plastic cord lock and zips are again reassuringly positive in their action and robust.

solid stud buttons and cord lock 

The 360mm / 14" long YKK zips ensure that these over trousers open up more than sufficiently to allow you to quickly put them on and take them off with ease. The button stud at the bottom of the zip then keeps the zips' storm flap in place.

strong 360mm YKK zips 

Movement whilst wearing them with either walking trousers or shorts was unrestricted and the button stud side pockets give quick and easy access.

The quality of the materials used by Keela has shown little sign of wear during the 9 months we have been testing this product. They still look like new!

You might have guessed by now that we think these over trousers are great and when you consider the £39.95 price tag we think they are great value for money!
