Thread: Seeland Wellies

    Seeland Wellies

    Hi, Everyone.

    I am after some new wellies and Seeland seem to get good reports. However, can anyone advise me as to sizing? In other words, do they size up large or small? For example, with cycling footwear I buy a 43 from Specialized but a 44 from Salomon....

    Many thanks for your help.

    Dom, I was happy to receive a great pair of Seeland wellies from Mrs Finnbear as a present, quite heavy as wellies go & the rubber smell was very strong in the motor for quite a few weeks, so good quality rubber,... the only detraction for me was the heel areas inside the boot, scrubbed out before the wellies died, I have been advised this can be repaired,....... as to the general use... smashing wellie boots.!Steve.

    I always used to swear by Hunters for being light and comfortable, but they dont last 5 minutes these days. I bought a pair of Seeland Neoprene wellies with a top vent and strap for around 42 at my local Scats store. Fantastically well made and at that price incredible money - I will never go back to Hunters now.

    I am a UK 10 in shoes and a UK 10 in Hunters, but went for a UK 9 (Euro 43) in these - a little tight on the big toe for a week or so but now worn in and are great. The UK 10 was waaaay too big for me.

    I have always used Le chameau but bought a pair of Seeland full zip from John Norris as a spare and my opinion now as changed I would never go back to Le Chameau again. The Seeland have a better sole with more grip for stalking I certainly slip less often when walking angled wet muddy ground, the neoprene is slightly thicker and the rubber seems thicker too. Fit wise they are perfect don't order larger or smaller. Cham's are over priced and always crack at the bottom of the zip.

    Thanks

    Thanks, chaps. Looks like the Seeland boots are worth a try in my usual size. Uttings have the Estate model at 85 plus postage, which is pretty good.

    Thanks again,

    I have just bought from John Norris. they have a sale on. 49 instead of 109. plus two pairs of Harkila 8" GTX for 39.99 a par. happy days.

    the sealands are about the same in the foot as Le Chemeau's but the leg is very large. im a big size and use to buy one size up but with the sealands i ordered the right size. with a walking so they will size up nice.
