    We were up in Shetland recently and on the only wet day in a week we went for a walk on Unst. The rain got heavier and the wind got up so we headed back, took off our waterproofs and discovered we both looked as if we had p**d ourselves!

    Can anyone recommend waterproof trousers that really do keep you dry?

    The more waterproof anything is the more condensation it causes so you'll still be damp underneath

    Hi Will
    Try Goretex waterproofs expensive but they work, I have been using Goretex clothing for both leisure and work for some years now and have found it excellent.

    Regatta Isotex breathable Gear works well and costs less than most Gore tex stuff. By the way is the Baltasound hotel still there ?

    Thanks for the tips on Gortex and Isotex, I shall check them out.

    Didn't notice the hotel at Baltasound, only stopped to take in the bus stop. Had a great meal at the Busta hotel on mainland, can recommend it. Also the Wind Dog cafe on Yell while waiting for the ferry, smashing bacon rolls!

    Many thanks

    Bill
