But we don’t let this stop us, because all we have to be is prepared, and stowable waterproof trousers are an essential element of this readiness. A decent pair of waterproof trousers are a must, and those with the addition of Gore-Tex are considered the crème de la crème of such garments. Used extensively by Cairngorm Treks throughout Autumn and Winter 2017/18 within the Cairngorm National Park, Skye, and surrounding areasThis area is often elasticated for extra comfort. A drawcord allows extra control of fit, while Velcro tabs, press studs, or belt loops allow further user-refined fit. Leg zips Over the years since its launch, NeoShell’s advantages have become “understood and adopted” by even the more high aerobic users according to Cattanach, to the extent that it’s now used in products in the road and mountain bike markets – where wearing a waterproof was previously unheard of. Breathability To Cattanach, NeoShell isn’t really about breathability. To him, there’s more to it than that. It’s about air flow.

Waterproof Protection

Here in the UK, we are pretty familiar with rain, and those of us who enjoy outdoor pursuits are even more so. The UK’s hiking and trekking hotspots are some of the wettest, with areas like Snowdonia, the Lake District, and the Yorkshire Dales and Moors all being renowned for regular downpours. In some areas of the Scottish Highlands, a holy land for all serious outdoor enthusiasts, there can be anywhere up to 3,000mm of rainfall a year. The Gore-Tex membrane is bonded to the outer shell material, before being covered by an anti-oil substance and carbon. Gore-Tex has engineered this material to be used for everyday activities, golfing, and hiking. Faults deemed to have been caused by misuse or improper care (including washing not in accordance with the product wash care instructions) are not covered by the guarantee.

Thanks to Gore-Tex’s years of innovation and experience, its waterproofing materials and membranes have never been lighter, more durable, or more waterproof. To help you find the best solution, we’ve rounded up the best Gore-Tex waterproof trousers available. Applying decades of textile know-how to our product range allows them not only to have a little stretch but to also fit who Polartec are.” And the reason Polartec NeoShell products are so stretchy and also so quiet in comparison to the other waterproof fabrics? That, according to Cattanach, is down to Polartec just being selective about what fabrics are paired with their membrane. “We’re known for making things at the premium end of the market,” he says. “We want our breathable waterproof ranges to be as coveted as the rest of our luxurious, silky smooth, soft and silent product range. The membrane is special and expensive, it would be crazy to blur that out with cheap and nasty textiles. So applying decades of textile know-how to our product range allows them not only to have a little stretch but to also fit who Polartec are – different to the competition.” These days the level of waterproof protection that a fabric provides tends to be measured in terms of its hydrostatic head and the higher this number is, the more waterproof it is. In this regard, Polartec with its 10,000mm rating, sits a fair bit below its main competitors, most of whom are in the 20,000s. Does that mean less reliability then? Would you be caught short in this stuff if you headed out into some stormy Scottish weather? Fortunately, as Cattanach explains, that wouldn’t be the case.
