Decent waterproof pants

So far, the rain pants work as described. Although I have noticed some condensation, and wonder if the pants are as breathable as would be preferred. I should know more about that after I complete an eight day hike in northern England. During October.

Used during a strong rain, the pants were certainly waterproof. I am hopeful that a condensation issue will not be the problem when the pants are used during cooler temps (10c, 50f).

Snaps around the ankles worked well. Unsnapped, I could get the rain pants on over my hiking boots. When snapped they helped seal water from entering the top of the boots. (Boots were also waterproof).
