Having got through two pairs of Hunter wellies in less than a year (first pair returned under warranty, second - lost the will to live), I decided to stop buying expensive wellies and buy a cheap pair - got these for £30. As a dog and horse owner, I spend a good few hours a day in wellies. I was sceptical about these, but 5 months on, I absolutely love them. They've stood up through snow - feet didn't get cold with a pair of thick socks on, rain - no leaks, and even the odd sunny day when the grass is dewy - no sweaty feet here. They are amazingly light and comfortable, not like traditional wellies at all. I'll certainly be buying a reserve pair, or one for my daughter, when the price goes back down again. Just a note on sizing - these are very much true to size so if you are expecting to wear very thick socks with your wellies, you might have to think again.
