Thank you for your feedback.
All in all I think they are excellent value for money at this price and I am well pleased with my purchase.
These wellies have not been worn every day although given the weather this year they have been used regularly.
This is the 3rd pair of these Wellies that I have bought for my husband.

Manufacturer's Description

In 1856, Henry Lee Norris, an American entrepreneur, landed on Scottish soil in search of a home for his boot making company. Having acquired a block of buildings in Edinburgh, known as the Castle Silk Mills, the North British Rubber Company (which much later became known as Hunter Boot Ltd) was registered as a limited liability company in September 1856. In the beginning there were only four people working for the company, by 1875 the team had grown to 600 members of staff. Production of wellington boots was dramatically boosted with the advent of World War I, when the company was asked by the British government to construct a sturdy boot suitable for the conditions in flooded trenches. The mills ran day and night to produce immense quantities of these trench boots. More than a million pairs were made to cope with the Army's demands. The fashionable boot was now a functional necessity. Hunter's most famous welly, the original Green wellington, was made over 50 years ago in the winter of 1955. It was the first orthopaedic boot that they made and was launched alongside the Royal Hunter--another boot that remains in Hunter's range today. Today, Hunter remains the preferred welly brand for those who like to work hard and play hard--there's a great range of boots to suit welly wearers all over the world--from the Royal Family to festival-goers, working farmers and landed gentry alike.

I have worn Argyll Wellies for over 40 years. I agree with others who have commented, Argyll/Hunter wellies are not as good as they were and seem to leak far more quickly than the earlier pairs, (which did last me for many years)... Yet, over the past six years I have seen(in new pairs)signs of 'perishing' or 'small cracks' with fabric visible underneath, and one pair spilting on the seam, within a very short time! Some pairs lasted less than six months! I wrote to Hunter/Argyll, I asked them if they were using a different combination of Rubber, or country of origin, I asked if it were possible the four pairs I had purchased on the same day from the same shop, might have been old stock or perhaps on display in a 'sunny' window. I gave them the manufacturers product code number for each pair and I sent them a photograph... But sadly, Hunter/Argyll never replied.
Obviously, I do find Argyll wellies superior to the cheaper brands, they are more comfortable, generally easier to put on, tuck trousers into and in my experiance, do afford a better grip in the wet.
As I require a good wellington, to be worn almost every day, I shall continue with this particular wellington, but... I can say that we have also been disappointed with other Hunter Wellingtons, which have not received much wear, (have been stored in a dry place, even powdered and kept out of the sun)...and still they appeared to perish and leak in a very short time....
In order for my review to be helpful, I'd say it depends on what you require of your wellingtons. My wife has given up on the Hunter/Argyll and manages to wear her way through the cheaper brands... I do seem to fare better with rubber welliingtons over the cheaper 'pvc type' of boot. Having tried a good many of both. I actually think that if I could purchase cheaper boots with better grip in the wet, I'd go for cheaper... But only because the Argyll really does seem to be failing to maintain it's former superior standard.

I've always bought PVC or army surplus wellies, but about 16 months ago I decided to go for a top quality brand and bought a pair of the above. They were used exclusively for dog-walking in grass fields and then only when it was wet. A week ago I detected dampness in one foot but just assumed it was water which had somehow entered at the top. However, on checking, I discovered a split in a seam. I contacted Hunter, attaching a photo of the fault and their response included,

" I passed your image on to our technical team. Their feedback has been that it is difficult to identify exactly what has caused this to happen, however there may have been some additional stress to this area, causing the rubber to split."

There has been no stress in this area other than normal light wear. Any manufacturing process can produce faulty goods, but it is the subsequent attitude of the maker that is the acid test. Hunter has refused to replace these boots, so they have consequently lost a customer for ever and I would advise any intending purchaser to be aware of this possible drawback. This has been alluded to by other reviwers.

I was a regular buyer of Argyll boots from 1970 to 2010 and loved them. The last pair I bought (in 2011) was much more expensive and much less comfortable. It is too soon to comment on their durability. The comfort problem results from the lack of the famous cushioned insole. This led me to read about Hunter Boot Ltd on Wikipedia. After being bought and sold several times the Dumfreis factory was closed and production moved to China. Hunter became a profitable manufacturer of a fashion brand, associated with 'green wellies' and the RHS. OK, but the quality has not kept pace. I therefore paid even more money for a pair of Nokian Footwear - Wellington boots -Finnwald- (Outdoor) [441]boots, made in Finland, and am delighted with them: better tread, more comfortable, a band to protect against chapping and a fastener to keep out lumps of mud. Sad about UK design and sad about UK manufacturing - but at least the UK has a business success in the boot business. Sorry I can't add to their bottom line.

I've had many pairs of these wellies down the years and they have always been excelent. This pair are again well made but the design has altered and they are not as large in the leg as the old ones, definitly a backwards step in wellie design. It is more dificult to get thick long boot socks and my trouser legs into the wellies.

i wish now i had read all the reviews before i bought these!i had previously bought the huntress wellies,they leaked badly after a couple of months round the heel area of one boot.i thought the mens argyll wellies looked much sturdier and as if they would last!2 months later one boot is leaking.think i will revert to the green dunlop wellies,even if they end up leaking they are much cheaper.hunter definately not the quality they used to be,what a rip off.very very disappointed.living in argyll and working outdoors,is it to much to expect wellies that will keep your feet dry?

These boots are an inferior version of the original cushion soled Argyll, which I have worn for years. They are different in size, quality, and comfort.
I've worn these boots a handfull of times walking along local towpaths and footpaths. They now both leak like sieves and
are totally useless. I will never buy these again. Off to the local dump with them now.
