Thread: Avoid Hunter Balmoral wellies

    Avoid Hunter Balmoral wellies

    No wonder Pridge is selling their pair of Hunter Balmoral wellies on here. They are ill fitting product. Although the correct size for me and a snug fit when on, they are just ridiculously too tight getting on and off at the ankle. Leather lined @ £200 and unused but they were bought over 30 days ago so no exchange from retailer and Hunters after care service should be renamed Noaftercare ! AVOID

    Both my wife and I had hunter wellies some years ago, after a couple of months they fell to bits. We found there customer care useless, they didnt want to know. We would never buy again

    I've just replaced my Le Chameau wellies with a pair of Toggi Wanderer Plus from Uttings. Neoprene lined and under £80 delivered.

    Hunters have a cr*p reputation nowadays so they never even made it onto the short list. I bought Aigle first, but by mistake I hadn't ordered neoprene, and they are £150, which is back into Le Chameau territory

    Just opened the box on a GENUINE pair of LC Chasseurs i bought 10 years ago before they went bad. Hunters were bowf even when they were made in Dumfries.

    well I've had a neo pair of balmorals for just over a yr and apart from the side buckle breaking they've been warm and waterproof and we ve had as wet a shooting season as ever worn on every home and away day as well as stalking far better than the last pair of Le cham

    Hunter wellies are a poor Chinese product and as with all failures - take them back to your retailer as your beef is with them directly. Bought my wife some at a garden centre who have now replaced 3 pairs and will continue to, if they continue to fail. I have Aigles, neoprene - should have gone for 9 and a halfs, as a bit tight but otherwise brilliant. Tried le Chameaux but eventually got fed up of the tops lolling over and my foot wandering about even with 2 layers on (soft sides). Wouldnt buy Le Chameaux again.

    Sounds to me like you just bought a pair of boots that don't fit? Hardly their fault if they don't fit your feet/ankles, and surely not their fault that you haven't tried them on for over 30 days?
    I wouldn't buy any boots unless I can try them on first and have a walk around. Most shops won't refund after a certain period and are not actually obliged to at all unless there is a fault with their product which it doesn't sound like there is? Hardly justification to slate their product surely?
