There is a small manufacturer in Sweden called Jörnkängan. They are actually more of a myth, but I thick it is possible to buy them. Better quality and lighter than Lundhags, Made in Sweden. But of course, even more expensive.
They are hand made welted shoes with replaceable soles. For this type of shoes/boots, not pricey at all. Rather cheap to be honest. I'm going to buy a pair next time I'm buying shoes.

I always wear my synthetic brynje when out doing stuff. Often under my aclima warmwool hoodie or under a stiched Lama wool sweater that I got from Indiegogo. I think it's superb. Warm when I need warmth and pretty cool when I need cooling. And although it's synthetic it has not developed the...
Thanks, will look into altberg. But i actually prefer the Red Wing look. More old school built up boot without the thick padding that the Altbergs had around the ankles/calves.
But red wing are too expensive. Are there any British high quality country boots that flies under the radar and...
I'm planning to buy a pair of one layer leather boots for normal use, from walking the dog to hiking. I don't want a membrane because the never dry when they get wet and I tend to get wet in them anyway, even if it's dry outside.
Anyone have any suggestions? I have seen some military boots...
I think there's some thin Wool shirts out there to be found. Mixed with poly out other synthetics.
Check out brands like
Super natural merino
I would look at Altra. They have some trail running shoes that are great. With foot shaped toe box and zero drop on all models from small to maximum cushioning.
Klättermusen Gere pants. Indestructible. Have made changes so they fit outside a pair of downhill boots. So I use them for everything. From summer hiking to winter downhill skiing. Not quite windproof but enough. Maybe not for the hottest days.
I would surf around for sales, there is always great prices to find if you're don't have a more specific requirement than that.
Sportpursuit.com have a lot of insulated jackets on sale all the time.
This is their ski jackets
Also mosquitos bite through the stretch panels. That's not nice in some parts of Sweden where I live.
But I find it harder and harder to find decent polycotton pants without stretch panels.
My go to pants right now are Klättermusen Gere, but they are a bit warm in mid summer and are not...
I'm not that excited over the lower pockets. If you're carrying a backpack the waist belt will be over those pockets.
The breast pockets are not very easy access with that construction. I would go with a Napoleon style side entry pocket with a zipper. And double layer in shoulders and elbows...
