Just came back from a woodland stalk, I worse my Meindls and the guide had his wellies. We crossed streams, muddy fields and the usual gunk as we stomped around. I had to spend almost an hour to get my boots clean, can only imagine the guide gave his a quick hose down (if that) and put them away. Made me think the welly seemed a better choice for such stalks.
Do others switch between the two depending on the terrain / weather ?
