Thread: Which Wellies

  1. #1

    Which Wellies

    Hi Folks

    Lots of welly upsilons out there.......Hunter,Aigle, le chameux etc.

    neoprene inside leather inside.

    Too much choice. Any advice most welcome.

    Avoid Chameux, I won't buy another pair.

    Aigle get lots of votes, but I went for Toggi when my Le Chameaus finally gave up as my budget was low... They're good enough, but I will probably get Aigle as and when the coffers refill. I'd have another pair of Le Chameau, but the newer ones don't appear to be anywhere near as well made, and I'm not spending north of £200 to prove that point!

    I went for Toggi's regardless of budget - they are still the best-lasting wellies I've had in the last 20 years!

    Mine split, one pair replaced the replacements split as well.

    Dunlop Purofort for £42. Insulated and good so far.

    Aigle is very good and comfortable. I use both neoprene lined and unlined for the best part of 30 years.

    I will probably have a go at the Decathlon wellies next time? Just to give them a try. About 1/2 price of the Aigles and also the nice tight riding boot design. They might be rubbish, but if you don't try them, .........
    I also have muckboots, don't like them. lethal on wet hard surfaces and far to stiff. Tiring to walk in.

    Just been into decathlon during a trip down Ayrshire way.... Well I would try the wellies ...had them along side the Aigles ( which were £119)
    Look ok, worth a go ....., I. Really impressed with the Solognac's trousers tho for £34.99

    Thirded the decathlon wellies. Got a pair in september and used them through the season on walk up days and doe culling. Plenty of use and they are warm and comfy, look pretty good and fairly tough. With a 2 year waranty on them also if you do get a split where there shouldnt be just send them back (unless it was barbed wire induced!).
