Review by Robin Jones
Ive had several pairs of these boots which tells you that I like them but also that they dont last especially well. On the plus side they are perfectly waterproof and theyre very comfortable. Ive walked 15 or 20 miles in them without a blister. On the other hand I have to replace them about once a year either because the soles have worn away or because a hole has appeared somewhere. This may just reflect the amount of use they get. I walk upwards of 2000 miles a year a lot of it over rough terrain so that may be a reasonable performance. Either way I havent found anything I like better.

Hubby prefers this boot to wellies as it provides a bit more support. They have a pretty good sole and are excellent for dog walking and possibly field sports where youre covering a range of terrain. Downside is that after a year the metal eyelets do start to pop out and the rubber does crack found this to be the case even though theyre not left out in sunlight or exposed to direct heat. Think it best to treat them with a rubber care spray once rinsed and dried along the lines of those provided by Seeland Aigle Le Chameau Hunter Joules and others. Thats what were doing now as it should lengthen the life of the rubber.

Great walking boots and very easy to clean.I have had a pair before so I was happy to purchase a new pair at a bargain price.
Review by Stuart Smith
Fantastic boots I have used them over several years working as an outdoor instructor. I have used them as water boots for Gyhll Scrambling, Canoeing the Vibram sole gives great traction. I have recently used them with Swiftwater Rescue Teams in the recent Cumbria Floods. Couldnt fault them. They do take a while to dry out completly but thats testement to the insulation of these great boots.
Review by Christopher
These were fantastic......for three months! Then the lace eyelets fell out. Wore them every day, walking the dog and they were totally waterproof and comfortable. I should have known; fitting metal eyelets to rubber is a daft idea.

Just a word in your lugs about ptarmigan boots, only had them 2 full days but i have covered about 11miles in all sorts of terrain i.e woods fields road etc, and must admit they are a super light boot and have felt really comfortable up to now, they will be severely tested over the next several months in all sorts of weather so i will keep you informed as we progress, by the way i had great service from uttings.co.uk
