    Boots

    That's the same problem with the HanWag boots. As a result of their success they seem to move production to cheaper parts of the world and standards drop. I'd be interested to hear from anyone with experience of the Altberg Gamekeeper boots. At least they have stayed in the UK.

    Paramo Velez Adventure Light Smock,any users?

    I agree with nonsuch - I love my adventure light BUT I have to treat it like a soft shell. I have worn it over Rannoch Moor in horizontal rain and got soaked through, I contacted paramo customer services who were brilliant but their advice was to wash it and reproof it - it was brand new ! I did...

    Lundhag boots

    Johnny - dont rule out the Hanwags - I thought they were cheap boots made in the Far East, how wrong was I, Hanwags are still handmade in Germany and have been for years. My advice would be try as many different makes and model and pick your favourite from them. I went shopping to buy Meindl /...
