When winter comes and it starts raining here(!), I'm going to need something suitable to wear on my legs. I've been looking online but am not really sure what I should be looking for. I don't really want to wear "tights", but do want something that won't get soaked through if possible. It doesn't get particularly cold here (probably down to about 8-10 degrees in the day - I'm a bit up from sea level), but when it rains, it RAINS, so I think my capri pants made from sweatshirt like fabric won't really be suitable.
My mum is coming to visit at the end of the month (yay!) so it would be handy if I could order something in time for her to bring, but anything I've looked at that seems like it might do the job is not available in my size.
Suggestions welcome about (a) what would be suitable to wear and (b) what online places are reliable.
