Aigle for me too, Hunters I find are like wearing roller skates..........slipping and sliding all over :blink:

I've had these ones for a couple of year now....

[attachment=15750:attachment]

Galloways.....they split around the big toe/instep area about a year ago....

Fine for standing on a bank watching coursing or just walking the pooch but if you put serious miles into them they just aren't up to it, which is understandable.

i wear my wellies everyday about 8 months of the year.

I have found thatthe best so far are muck bootsfor comfort, vaule and warmth. No more putting thick socks on...... they are great, 10% waterproof, my last pair lasted 4 years of constant wear and itwas onlythat the moulded grip had wprn that ive bought some more (pink ones this time)

they do nice leafy design now.

honestly they are super :clapper:

The one pair of original Hunter wells. I had lasted MANY years , not bad value for money at £35 .

If you're not actually walking or working in water get a pair of decent goretex lined boots you bunch of lightweight messers!!!! http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... .


:yes: ........got the hunter screel high and I must say they have been very good........I also like the look of the Cham Mouflon plus high boots......seen em for £130 which is about £55 off....... :hmm: may just have to invest.
You should allways look to the future ;)

Wellies for quickness and as Chief says, actually doing a bit of wading.

Yep - you get much more support from a proper boot - I'd recommend the Meindl range - either the Glockner or the Douvre Extreme. Around the £165 mark, had my Douvres for just over two years now & plenty of life still in them - and they are still waterproof - just put some nikwax wax on them occasionally.

I know of a pair that have lasted 6 years and are still 100% waterproof so the owner says , they have taken a terrible amount of abuse .


That does it then.........I will tell the mem sahib that you made me buy them :D
