These trousers are perfect, especially for the Shetland weather (horizontal rain!) Perfect fit, elasticated high waist which ensures you stay dry. Zips at the ankles, great for wearing with wellies or walking boots. Best thing is that you don't feel like you're wearing some sort of huge oilskins trousers, they're a neat fit. For women especially if you order a size 10 you expect a size 10 and not something that you can't get over your hips, these are the right size.
