This one I posted looks good for the price and I like the half-leg zipper thing for getting over boots,

Have you tried any Dutch or German suppliers, Dutch men are statistically the largest in the world

They will do the job My current kit cost less than 100 a set, the only letdown is the leg length (33in) when wearing army boots on wetter days, the jackets are so far very good,I've even crashed in one

34" leg.

Tip:
I re-waterpoof my gloves/boots and jackets etc using either clear "Back To Black" type silicone based dashboard spray(same as camping shop stuff but way cheaper from Supermarkets) or GT85 clear chain lube/spray.Yes it works brill and doesn't rot the stitching
Quite possibly, I'll see how the Richa overtrousers fit first.

Good shout on back to black
