    I have Jack Pike Tundra boots. Only wear them for stalking but last year went a week in Scotland p!ss!n down every day and they never let water in also very comfy. @ 70 if I get 2-3 years out of them I,d be happy. I did have a 200 pair of boots and they were crap.

    yes thats what im hearing about the harkilas quallity is a bit hit or miss, dont want to buy the normal leather type boots as the heather just kills them so after something with a bit more protection that will last a few years so any suggestions welcome

    I have a pair of these http://www.bredonhillshooting.co.uk/...lar-boots/p462 they have a thick rubber rand and then kevlar, 3 seasons in of beating every other weekend and then 8 ish days of shooting and they are still in good order, I know they look a bit weird, but I bought them for 2 reasons, 1, Im a lazy ****er and don't like cleaning them and 2, I reckoned they wouldn't rot like leather!

    They did squeak, but I plied the laces where I suspected the squeak was and they have been fine.

    Hi Adam,
    I have a pair of Altberg game keepers, really comfortable out of the box, factory not that far from you.

    Regards

    I've had a pair of Miendl boots for about a decade. They've never let any water in and although they're well worn they're tough as.. well, old boots!

    The time has come for me to look for a new pair however and I've narrowed it down to either a new pair of Miendl Glockner, Miendl Taiga or Miendl Douvre!

    That being said, the Altbergs and Le Cham Mouflon are well worth a look too.

    Currently use a pair of Miendl DE's bought at the CLA last year and they're superb !
    Worn them stalking in lousy weather last Autumn and up to present in Argyll.

    Well reccommended !
