Bosun, get some dunlop puroport wellies. have a look see. you wont wear these fuckers out chief, i guarantee.

 

 

 

.I live in my wellies mate, i tried to put a link up off ebay, but wouldnt work. they are safety wellies, but you wouldnt know it, thermal etc, and tread like a zetor tractor.

 

Hope you and yours are keeping well.

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:

 

No problem mate, They seem spot on upto now we'll just have to see how they fair up after a proper day/night out, Gutted about paying £40 0n Sunday though! I've just bought another pair now at the better price, I've been eyeing them up for months now but didn't fancy paying £80 for them

They do seem to have some good gear in there now. I remember about 7-8 years ago all their hunting/outdoors gear was shite.

When I was working on the farm we were using land masters with a wolly insole and seal skin socks in the winter a pair would last me about 2 years being used every day of the year I rated them highly plus there only about £50 a pair

To add, I've had mine two seasons now....I walk the dogs every nite on Tarmac road for four miles, out every Sunday beating and digging, and use them for on the boat and fishing.....they like the day I bought them!
Warmest, most comfortable, strong wellie I have ever had.....and iv went thru all the dear ones!

Looking myself for some new welly's, been looking at the safety ones like above and some of the Grubb's range as well

 

I dont really like the style of them with the neoprene top's....but i need something really strong and sturdy and built to last

Get some of them Dunlop ordered mate. The ones with the steely and thermal insulated. I got a pair a while back. The soles are a good 1 and 1/2 inch thick.
