    I think you'll find Rohan had waterproof 'normal' hillwalking trousers long before Sprayway came out with their trousers.
    I think it was in the late 1990s that Rohan first brought them out and they've had various versions in their range since then.

    I think they pre-date even that. I can't remember the name but I'm sure I had a pair of Rohan trousers in the late 80s or possibly very early 90s that were waterproof by virtue of a drop liner built into an otherwise normal pair of microfibre walking trousers. Since I first discovered Rohan kit in the very early 80s I'm pretty sure these were their first version of normal-looking waterproof trousers.

    I stand corrected on that front. I see Rohan still does them too in the form of the <a href='http://www.rohan.co.uk/mens-travel-and-outdoor-trousers-Dry-Requisite-Trousers?ocode=03733595' target='_blank' rel='nofollow'>Dry Requisite Trousers - 'chino styled' apparently and with a waterproof drop liner

    and the 'combat pants-type'<a href='http://www.rohan.co.uk/mens-travel-and-outdoor-trousers-Dry-Pioneer-Trousers?ocode=04028525&relatedType=Also' target='_blank' rel='nofollow'>Dry Pioneer variant. I wonder if they meant cargo pants there.
