    Im hoping to start commuting to work again very soon, but given the time of year, I dont fancy doing this in shorts.

    Can anyone recommend full length trousers that would be suitable.

    PS Dont fancy the lycra style, not for work anyways

    Mally, what do you want from the trousers. ❓

    I commute in a pair of Army Combat Pants, under a tenner, they are lightweight, plenty of pockets, quick to dry, and very hard wearing, and with plenty of room for cycling comfortably.

    I do a 7 mile in and often a 30 odd mile commute home and am very pleased with what I wear from a functional point of view.

    Look good meta man, have you tried these or just spotted a bargain.

    Gunner was hoping for water proof to be honest. At under a tenner defo worth considering though. any problems with catching ?

    No problems otherwise I wouldn’t be doing the miles I do in them.

    Waterproof these aren’t, but they are very quick drying.
