    Have had both, and both are good. I have muckboots at the moment. The biggest advantage of the muckboots is that they are cheaper. I bought my most recent pair 6 weeks ago at my local farm shop for £56.00!

    Got them both, for a shoot day its the Aigle. For clambering round its the Mucks. The Mucks are more forgiving I've found and warmer. The only thing letting them down now at nearly 2yrs old is the smell. . The parcours can be gotten cheaper than bookprice if you keep your eye on other sites .

    Unless you are wading in over a foot of water I don't think you can beat the comfort and versatility of good leather boots and canvas gaiters (neoprene is too noisy in heather and brush. Barbours are fine). The issued Army Pro-boots with Gore-Tex lining are £80 from Silvermans and really very good and you do not need to pay big name prices for comparable dryness, warmth, grip. Mine have stalked, shot and dog walked for the best part of 5 years and still have plenty of life in them. And they're British.

    I got the Muckboots for Xmas and love them. I suffer from cold feet and i think this winter is the first time i've felt my toes whilst in a high seat.

    Good price too

    Bought my second pair of muckboots. Got tay this time. Squeek like nobodies business in a metal high seat. The previus, Spay i think, never had that problem so possibly something to do with the compound. The tread is good on soft but not as comfortable on hard ground. Spey a better walking boot on multiterrain and in the high seat. That said I would not go past Muckboots,

    Another for Muck Tay boots. Had all sorts of wellies but these do keep your feet warm and are comfortable for walking. Good value at the price.
