£130 Scott wa­ter­proofs

Scott Er­gonomic Pro water­proof jacket £69.95 and trousers £59.95

Tester Andy Davidson Time tested Four months/2000 miles

What’s good? These are the best wa­ter­proofs I’ve ever tested. It’s not your typ­i­cal rain suit – which can of­ten feel and look like it’s con­structed from thin bin bags – the jacket and trousers are made from polyurethane and polyester, which makes them feel like stretchy rub­ber. That makes them tough but flex­i­ble and easy to throw over nor­mal rid­ing kit. The Scott out­fit per­formed bril­liantly when used on and off-road dur­ing a re­cent trip through the Hi­malayas. The suit never leaked once and kept the dust and muck out, too. The cuffs, col­lar and legs are all ad­justable. They’re sim­ply per­fect.

What’s not? You’re paying a pre­mium price com­pared to cheap wa­ter­proofs, but when you are ad­ven­ture rid­ing you don’t al­ways want a water­proof tex­tile suit as it can be­come in­cred­i­bly hot in warmer cli­mates. Throw-on wa­ter­proofs are the an­swer, and these are prob­a­bly the best you can get.
