Much cheaper alternative is a pair of super market brand jogging pants made from some devilish modern material. I bought a pair last week to wear under my waterproof trousers whilst fishing on me punt in freezing conditions. Kept me nice and toasty. Please shoot to kill if ever you see me in public wearing said jogging pants without waterproof over trousers ; for it will be a sure sign I have been bitten by a rabid dog several days earlier and now infectious!

Santiago,

As sport seems to have become so omnipresent my interest in it has waned to such a degree that I'm beginning to loathe it. I feel that my integrity would be seriously compromised were I to purchase 'jogging pants' even if they were to be shamefully concealed by over trousers. I'm proud to say that I'm more of a 'One Man and His Dog' than 'Match of The Day' sort of chap, and "please shoot to kill" if that ever changes. Merino Xmas to one and all.

That's what I thought! If only I had a bigger budget for warm clothing! Ney matter, I have plenty of layers of blubber.

Wouldn't want anyone to think I am a chav ! Although I do like catching big chavender. But of course they're a very different species.
