I've had the Archon IX8 Outdoor Waterproof Tactical Trousers for a couple of weeks now and we've had plenty of wet weather. So far they have been excellent. The sizing is perfect - the waistband is partially elastic but I still need to use a belt so not too tight, which is a good thing. The trousers are pretty lightweight, so good for all weathers. I usually wear shorts until it gets really cold/wet so I don't need anything too warm; these are ideal. They appear to be quite hard wearing - material is not as thick as some old school combat type trousers, so might not be great for heavy duty usage. They are definitely waterproof so far and are easy to wipe down if muddy. I'm very pleased with the purchase but my only (minor) complaint is that they are not as slim fitting as I had hoped. They fit like a regular pair of trousers - but they easily fit over the top of my Haix boots, helping to keep the water out.
