I am hoping to do some longer walks with my dogs. At the moment I just wear any old thing but would like to look a bit smarter though also be prepared for any changes in the weather. I used to wear a waxed jacket (many moons ago) but have been told that the newer fabrics are lighter, machine washable and more comfortable. I did have a waterproof jacket that just dripped down my legs and soaked my trousers! I have looked at walking trousers on line but haven't a clue what to choose. Can any of you lovely ladies point me in the right direction please?
