i have recently bought some hunter classics like the ones in the link http://www.ukcovers....ellingtons.html anyone got them and how would you rate them.is there anyway of treating them with anything so they last longer.was gonna get a pair of the originals but was told that the rubber is made in china and doesnt last long unlike the originals my dad brought about 10 year ago.

good hunting

I used to wear the normal old style hunters. I know things have probably improved but i found them so crap i would never even buy any of their new stuff now.
Aigle for me, ive had these ones over 2 years, i spend 3/4 of my life in wellies and walk ALOT. The hunters would have been split and even more slippy than they normally are, but these are as good as the day they were bought. I suffer from cold feet, the neoprene lining in these is superb so even when standing about alot when ratting my feet are the only things warm :D
