    Le Chameau Mouflon Plus for me. Keep the leather well-dubbined & they'll last years

    The mil surplus Haix or Altbergs are worth a look - could save you enough cash for a day or two at deer.

    I got mine (Haix) here but they don't seem to have any stock at present as I'd bet demand was pretty high, although they claimed to be "grade 1" the ones I got were brand new and a mate had the same experience:

    Footwear - British Military Surplus

    The Haix are goretex lined and mine are certainly waterproof, I don't think Altberg favour goretex type linings but would expect them to be waterproof in most normal use.

    As well as the surplus Haix I have 6 other pairs of boots. The Haix took a little while to break in for me, but higher leg boots always do with me and my Doovres were the same, but apart from that I'd recommend them and would say they compare well with all the other pairs I have including the Doovre Extreme Plus and also my favoured Scarpa SL 3/4 season hill boots.

    Just got back from hinds in the most disgusting conditions. Army surplus extreme cold weather boots at a price of tuppence ha'penny for an issued pair worked very well. Will buy another pair, one for up there one for here. Buy a good insole for them.

    Altbergs for me. Had a pair of field and fell for 15 years still warm and waterproof. Keep them well protected with the ledergris supplied with boots and they're soft and waterproof. They last really well and can be refurbished at the factory.I think they supply to MOD with cold weather boots if you really feel the cold.
    Regards Rob.
