Well after 9 months service my Tayberry Rooks have just decided that they can't hack it and split, on the upper, in the crease, on both..!!
Bottom line is.... Wellies are all shite!
Over the past 4.5 years of living 'rural' i've had about 7 pair of wellies and the best were the under a tenner, dunlop specials...
Since I moved in I've had a new pair each birthday and Christmas... And each comes with the same hope, that maybe i'll get a year out of 'em and i'm sick of getting 'em and she now refuses to buy 'em... Can't say I blame her!
Hunter, Tayberry, Sealand, Muck, Sherwood and a few others... And as said, the dunlop have outlasted ALL. I'd simply stick with them but I put a fair few miles in each week and a bloke of my age needs a bit of comfort and warmth at this age, those dunlops are neither..!!
Now some may say that if I went up to a pair of Le Cham or them Aigle thingies all would be good... But I simply can't justify that dough, especially if they lasted 6 months or so...
Feck it, just wear boots BUT again, good boots cost money, I have 'em but I ain't gonna destroy 'em tramping round bog soaked fields to simply excercise dogs, day in day out. Even the best would almost never dry out through a winter and that would seriously reduce their working life.
It's gotta be wellies but what type...????????
Stick with the dunlop specials, or do ye homework, buy and pray!
Well, this is the homework... I've read the manufactures stuff, then the reviews and was impressed with that cross section pic if you google images. Oh, and there is a couple of great reviews on youtube too. They do look a bit 'arty-farty' to me but maybe I need to climb out of the dark ages...!
The other question is, where to buy from?
Lacrosse Aerohead. Opinions please..... Help..!
One of many reviews...
