Live in wellies for 6 months of the year, unless like now it rains a bit!

Had to replace the inner soles after 9 months but apart from that going well

I had to replace my wellies this season. After having a look at all the brands in Countrywide, I bought a pair of Argylls (the farmer's wellies). They cost about £45 and they have served me well so far. They don't have a fancy liner, but I wear an extra pair of thick socks.

I've just got a pair of these delevered yesterday, slightly gutted that I paid £39.99 for them on Sunday and now they've been reduced, I have to say though even though I've only had to quick walks in them they feel very comfortable and warm. 2 years warrenty on them as well, I might order another pair at that price now

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..!! :censored:

 

 

 

I tried some of them, mine split after a week and a half.

I done £165 on a new pair of le chems today, had the hunters before and wore them out after a year or so....I tried all of the gooduns on and went with the chems because they was marginally lighter and have a 2 year warranty.....I'm in them for an hour a day weekdays and a few hours on the weekends so had to be comfy....

 

But to be honest the neoprene lined hunters felt just the same and I think they was half the money....

You tried their hunting trousers tomo? I've got three pairs, they're a tough cotton jean style trouser. 20 quid I think. I really rate them.

Deanflute, soon as I seen them I bought a pair on the spot, as I've also been trawling round for a robust, knockabout pull-on boot and at that price they are well worth the money. So thank you. :victory:

Tomo, your a good enough salesman and I'm gonna plump for the neo Agile, same as yours. Though it'll be out of next months pay packet.

Thing is, my Mrs just said as I was on the Decathlon site, that she thinks the owner is a mate of her dads..! Now, my father-in-law can be an awkward 'customer' sometimes but she'll ask him to speak to the bloke, so....!! :hmm:

Paul, keep me posted on those copies, my mate said he'll get 'em if they hold up to your nasty trotters, me too..!!! :laugh:

 

Thanks to all who added to the thred... Just one other thing, did anyone look propper at those Lecrosse boots I put up, I do still think they could be a good buy, I love the fact that they ain't rubber and built so thick. They do look like they'll last... If anyone ever takes the plunge, keep me posted... :yes:
