    Chiruca Hunting

    Has anybody got these? What is your opinion. I am looking at getting new boots and like the idea of these, but want some advice first as not many places stock these they are "Order only".

    I know the stalker here has a pair and loves them. If they can do a winter here, they can cope anywhere.

    I agree they do look like a very good boot. But I don't think I'll throw out my 'Altbergs' just yet.

    My step daughter is a copper and she swears by Altbergs.

    I like the Altbergs because they are a small friendly British company. My boots took ages to get to me, when I complained they apologised but explained that half the work force were off with the flu! That's a small work force. Lundhags are also pretty good. A friend of mine wanted a good pair of boots for Scotland. He has ankles like a six year old girl, so I suggested Lundhags and he is very happy with them. 8)

    I wear Lundhags. Have been wearing them for over 25 years (not the same pair). Here in Sweden you don't see them in the shops. I asked why in my local gun shop and they said it was because modern hunters must have Gore tex in there boots. I can stand in water up to the top of my Lundhags and not a drop leaks in.
