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.

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.

http://www.ebay.co.u...tm/191440915364 I bought these, cheap and bloody good to wear, can't go wrong for that money, it shows with the price variations though, they don't know what to charge for them.

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.
