The Amelie women's overtrouser is a good quality, mid priced waterproof essential for any female outdoor adventurer. Really easy to slip on when the weather makes a turn for the worst. It has an elasticated waist with draw cord and zips at the ankle so you can get them on over footwear quickly. The Amelie has taped seams, is lined and shaped for the female figure. Popular with Scouts and Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme students as they compress well into rucksack side pockets.
