I’ve got a pair now and find mine pretty good in the wet 👍

Fair enough mate. Do you wash them in TX Direct or something similar? Were they the ones with the hytena reinforcing? Mine wee just the regular ones and I wash them normally and they were shite for water proofing within a season.

What model they mate? I have to admit to wearing the defenders this past season an I honestly can’t fault them When against the high moor boots Iv got here 🤯 me lad had even bought himself a pair a defenders an said they as good as his lowa’s???????🤯

 £55 quid brand new, are they days of 250/300 quid boots gone? I don’t know but even the guy in altberg smirked when I mentioned it, he said loads a folk have changed to defenders 😁

They are the Nordkapp. As you can maybe remember I have the Gamekeepers already, had Sneekers before and got a pair of their desert boots (mil surp) for summer kicking around too. I wanted these specifically for their A-form heel which is just a more snug fitting heel and as a lighter alpine style boot compared to the very bulky Gamekeeper. The Gamekeepers are fine and great for a hard day's work hunting but not sure I'd want to be wearing them day in day out.

A mate who I do the terriers with wears the Defenders and so does another mate I used to go beating with. Both rate them.

If I don't kill a tahr in May then they're shit and I want my money back. If I kill a big bull then best boots in the world! :laugh:
