    new wellies

    I have had a pair of the french wellies for the last 5 years which have been excellent, but have just started to leak, I have read bad things about the quality of them now and was thinking of getting a pair of leather lined Harkila Upland, would like to hear from anyone who has a pair, cheers

    Try another French brand; Solognac. I'm very pleased with the pair I've been wearing for the past 2 years. I've got one of the Neoprene models.
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    Bushwear today has 4 pairs of LC leather wellies awaiting collection for burst zips... All out of warranty but hardly a good omen for a 250 boot?

    I dont want warm wellies my feet get very hot walking in them. Can any one recommend breathable or non sweaty wellies by any chance.

    My last pair of Le chameau leather lined lasted 4 years faultlessly, their replacement, bought in November, hmm....already back to the shop as the rubber came unstuck from the sole a month ago. So in three months of wear a very simple and shoddy bit of damage. They do seem to have been cheapened somewhat! These will be my last le chameau, shame, I love the comfort, and the look of them, but, for that money, they need to last at the very least 3-4 years in my book! Not 3-4 months!
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    Some boots which work really well for me, all USA
    LaCrosse Grange, uninsulated, chain sole, for wet grass, wading creeks, swamps, mud, some snow

    LaCrosse Alpha Burly, tougher lug sole, insulated

    Schnee's Bison Hunter. Schnee's, like Danner, came from the logging industry. They make boots for hunting in deep snow, wet and rough timber like the Cascade Mountains. Many of their boots are made to fit in stirrups for horseback hunting.

    Seeland Estate neoprene do the job - not too warm, not cold, Vibram sole for good support when walking over rough ground. Should be around the 100 mark. Just replaced my first pair after 3 years, still functioning, but not barbed wire fence proof!
