Waterproof trousers, £7.99
Miles covered/time: 2000/four yearss
What’s good: My dad bought these in the late eighties, before I was even born so I’ve no idea how many miles these had covered before I ‘borrowed’ them.
Despite being older than me they’ve never let a single drop of water through and they fold up small enough for them to be kept in the bottom of my rucksack day in day out.
The zips on the lower leg almost go all the way up to the knee, meaning it’s a doddle to put them on while wearing boots.
What’s not: They’re looking a bit worn now and one of the zip pulls has come off, making it awkward to fasten the zip.
