I have a pair from these people

http://www.muckbootcompany.com/

extremely comfy and warm as they are essentially a neoprene sock with heavy rubber welded on. My pair cost me about 50 3 years ago and still going strong.

I swear by my DuBarry Ultimas for warmth and dryness and bought them for about the same price some three years ago. However, they're now some 60.00 more - possibly due to the euro exchange rate?.

Can they really be 60.00 better than Henri Lloyd?

What Walruz said....

Another vote for the MuckBoot from me!

I use the wellies for walking the dogs /shooting etc.....very warm and really confortable. the large grips aren't always ideal for a slippy deck though, so I also use a pair of the winter sport boots...really grippy and warm!

Dan.

Cheers Mollers - ideal ribbing design . Ordered a few pairs to dish out to crew when needed.

But I have ordered the Henri Lloyd pair just in case ..........

I wait to see if they are any good!

Pair of cat boots: Warm, comfortable, grippy. My choice of boot for winter ribbing/launching boats etc. Add a pair of sealskin socks for extra dryness
