Thread: Hill Boots

  1. #1

    Hill Boots

    What boots are hill stalkers using these days? I'm talking day in, day out use, not a week a year.

    I've had many different boots over the years and I know what I like but I am just interested to hear other peoples opinions before I get my next pair.

    Must be good quality.

    I lowland stalk with a bit of hill every now and again. When my LOWAs wear out I will replace them with another pair the same. Very comfortable durable supportive and totally waterproof.

    The stalker where I go in the west Highlands has been using the Lundhag professional for the last three years and swears by them. I got a pair on his recommendation. Love them

    Lowa , good enough for Squaddies marching up and down Brecon and the likes with full kit and better priced than some far east made **ite , Alternatively Altberg or Matterhorns ,

    Lowa Military Boots | Military Boots | Lowa UK - RVOPS


    Military Boots from Alt-Berg | High Performance, Excellent Support

    Worth noting all the best boots use Vibram soles .

    Haix protector pro for those that require toe caps and chainsaw protection. Soles stick to just about anything and last around 3 years used every day when looked after

    I tend to wear my tried and trusted mountaineering boots, brands such as Scarpa, Meindl (who have a line of hunters boots) etc - all are excellent quality and will last for years properly cared for. I always go to a good outdoor shop that know what they are talking about to get properly fitted.

    In wet, boggy, uneven terrain when you are likely miles from nowhere I want a pair of boots I can rely on, not just to keep my feet dry and comfortable but also offer proper support - crucial in bad and uneven terrain. If really wet I combine with gaiters.

    Meindl, I get from Sept-Feb out of a pair, they are on every day.

    ​Used to use Le Chameau but the quality of them isn't as good now.
    There is a place on this planet for all of God's creatures, right next to my tatties and gravy!!!

    Those were my last boots too - i'm stalking in Husqvarna Tech 24's at the moment! Though saw proof, they're unbelievably not adder proof as I found out a few weeks ago....

    I have a pair of Chameaus, they now lie in a cupboard.....I now use Lowas, non Goretex model, IMHO MUCH better boots, and cheaper too. Chameaus just aint what they used to be...
