Thread: heads up on le chameau

  1. #1

    heads up on le chameau

    just a quick shout, sportsman are still knocking le chameau full zip wellingtons out for 154, cheapest i have seen for a while. whilst speaking with a sales rep of boots/wellingtons yesterday he told me there wellingtons will be going up by 20% soon ( you guessed it price of oil ) thats the muckboots rep but he says they are all going to be going up and soon.

    Sales of Le Chameau wellingtons have slowed right down since they stopped using YKK zips with a very much inferior zip. The leather Chasseurs have now a RRP of over 300.

    Just got a pair of the leather lined from swillingtonshootingsupplies, 100 cheaper than that, these guys take a bit of beating on price for anything

    I go through a pair a year so will stick to Muck boot now as they are cheaper, the best I've had from Vieznords is 2 years and they leaked for 2 months !!!

    Maybe I'm just getting too close to the BIG birthday but aren't all wellies getting to be far too damm expensive

    I've had my muck boots a couple of years and they're knackerd! They have split and the heel on the inside has worn away. Makes them squeak badly.

    I've had my chasseur's for over 6 years and wear them most days. I love them, they are as comfy as slippers but i have had the broken zip problem. Le Chameau wanted me to send them back to be repaired at a cost approaching 100.... I opted for cable ties.

    i've had good customer service from le chameau ! had a pair of wellies split at the heals ! rnew pair arrived within 2 weeks of sending off old ones. then i have just sent a pair of boots that i bought over two years ago [ but not worn till jan this year] so out of warranty.
    Right boot leaked like a sieve , recived replacements yesterday !

    Also have a pair or muck boots due to the reports of how good they are on the forums

    Yes they are cheap and warm . BUT the tread pattern is CRAP and they are slippery on wet grass, and show excessive wear on the inside heal

    True words i have heard many times but still get caught out now and again !

    BUY CHEAP BUY TWICE !

    I bought a pair of the Kevlar dark green Chasseurs 6 years and i use them almost every day and they are still perfect.. i will replace with better when better comes along. Had a pair of Vatnas for walking the dog and they wore my heel away when wet and they were replaced with new Chasseurs by LC. Good service, almost Swarovski standard.
