Neoprene Wellies

Recommended Posts

Well all my life I've always had cheap and cheerful wellies such as Dunlop. So I've treated myself to a pair of neoprene. I know they're not in the top league like Hunters or any other top brand but £30 off EBay I'm happy and warmer toes.

I bought the top pair,was going to have cammo pair.

Well worth the money and delivery was very quick.

Really hope they work out for you, you won't know if they're worth the money

until you've used them for a good few months though.

 

I bought a similar pair they were made by Bison and cost £30, they leaked out of

the box, after speaking to the supplier it was agreed I should seal them with aquasure.

That solved the problem but just one month later they split on the top of the boot

where it bends above the toes, total crap, thankfully I got my money back.

 

Bought a pair of Grubs Riverline neoprene wellies from Uttings for £39.99 [down from about £85],

different quality all together. Had them four months so far and not had a problem.

I bought some of these a year ago

but from a shop in Halifax, they were £80. Sheeesh, not paid that much for wellies before. They lasted 8 months before they leaked but I think they may have been pig nibbled.

I am using carrier bag liners until I can amass enough rubber solution for a permanent repair

 

The good thing about steel toecaps is that (like weebles) they stay upright.

I've had the same pair now for 3 years , no problem at all with them

And the best thing is they don't rub the leg below the knee

Neoprene wellies are good, but easy to split if your on some rough ground, so it's a bit of a trade off. I use these, not cheap, but not expensive.

I wear these all the time and get them free from work. Best wellies we've had at work because all the others split and were twice the weight.
