Dubarry Ultima Sailing Boots

OK if I'm gonna spend a fortune on wellies does anybody have any experience of how long I can expect them to last?

Unisex Dubarry Ultima Sailing Boots for sale - | Mailspeed Marine

I'm out on the water pretty much every other weekend and I'm not gonna spend two hundred and forty notes on something that's gonna last just the one season!!! I want a pretty durable sole as well which can take walking around on river banks, slipways, roads etc.

Info on your experiences would be greatly appreciated!!

Chris

Only had a week on the boat with them so far but very comfy 👍

The best.

One of our lad's has my old Shamrocks, he's in them everyday and they won't give up. He's just come in from racing in the rain, they're sodden.

If you're gonna lay out a quarter of a grand on boots, don't bother with anything else.

I would reccomend them, i have had a pair for going on 4 years now, Mrs has a pair, she never complains about her feet being cold or wet. Not cheap but very durable.

Bought a pair earlier this year. Absolutely brilliant!
Comfy, warm, dry and durable.
Btw I spent less than 200!

Epically good, the customer service backs up the product pricing. Finally got a leak in my Ultima boots, changed for new ones, no questions asked.
