Thread: Harkila or Harleaka

  1. #1

    Thumbs down Harkila or Harleaka

    Went out this morning for a poke around, knocked a nice little buck over so was happy, thats 2 in 3 days, the estate is happy but when i went to change my boots i found this.

    Im not happy., bought them last year, wore then a few times in the winter, always washes and dried after. today i walked 200 yards to the buck, delt with it and then walked 200 yards back to the motor pushing the wheel barrow with buck.

    For the money i thought they would be the mutts but now im thinking their nutts.

    down side is i bought a second pair at the same time as they where cheaper.

    How disappointing for a premium priced product, I hope that Harkila value their reputation enough to send you some F.O.C. replacements asap.

    Interesting, as some of our stalking ground is very flat and just a swamp. Never had wet feet in the Harkila, unless I've gone over the top of them which I seem to do regularly! Why should this be? Are they all made in the same place or are they contracted out to different makers?

    Not the first time I have seen harkila products fail. A friend had a new harkila roe sack and stitching cacame apart after 2/3 outings. Luckily he eventually had a full refund. Mendil all the way. 3rd season now and mine haven't had any problems. I don't particularly look after them either, just put some wax on every 2/3 months.

    I had a pair of harkila prohunter trousers which, after 3months, the stitching around one of the pockets came undone... I contacted the UK distributor and after sending them the trousers they replaced them with a brand new pair. It did take approx. 3 - 4 weeks though... Disappointing for a premium product with a premium pricetag!!! Good luck with boots, hopefully you'll get some replacements...
