Waterproof mate?Enough for the Himalayas and suchlike?I went to an outdoor shop in London earlier,they didn't stock the tibets,they had meindl Bhutan's in but the reviews on the Lowas are better.

They are cracking boots, my mate got a pair and used them all season on the moor last year and had no problem with them at all,  no leaks and very hard wearing even dragging them through the heather, I’ll be getting some once I’ve burned the meindl’s out

Had 4 pairs of lowas over the years all been abused and stayed spot on, now I'm on the tibets and they're the best I've had, would definitely recommend.

Have a look at the lowa Hunter evos mate, same boot but insulated and bit taller, very good boots if you're carrying a heavy pack, gut bucket or ruck

I’ve had 4 pairs of lowa mountain gtx which are good boots,gortex lined so 100% waterproof.have a look a Altberg boots Richmond North Yorkshire,they make and repair,re-sole boots, they come in 4 or 5 width sizes,I’ve there walking boots & motorbike boots and I’ve had there work boots,the leather on Altberg boots is the best I’ve had it’s twice as good as lowa boots which no matter how much care I put in they crack in time and the leather becomes stiff.

The lowas are excellent boots,broke them in back home,three weeks in the mountains sometimes 7-8 hours a day walking,no blisters and comfortable.
