    Get the Lowa's, I've have a pair for almost 3 years now & if they can take my weight for that long without falling to bits they'll take a Scrawny EX WALTHER shooter no problem :D:D:D

    Id be Altberg personally Pete ONLY because i wore them most of my army career and can vouch for the robust boot and had them a the best part of 12 years (nearly lost my life cos of them but thats a different story ;) :rolleyes: ).....to follow on what Mick the bomber said, you'll be standing in warm water , blacking them, dubbing, pissing in them etc to soften them up to start off :D

    However i cant comment on the other brand , never used them :)

    Pete go to a hiking shop and get a pair fitted,I went to one in Ludlow and tried loads on untill I got the correct fit.And those were the Meindles.
    Mind ya if you want to spend less than a hundred quid you'll not go far wrong with German Para boots,very comfy and hard wearing.I wore em for years.

    I haven't had either of these boots, but I've had both Gore-Tex and Sympatex in boots and gloves and have found Gore-Tex to be the best in keeping water out. Currently using Danner Pronghorns with gore-tex and have spent hours in the rain and walked through streams etc and haven't had anything through. I use Dubbin on the outside as well, which helps.

    Cheers

    Pete,

    Might be worth a trip to GOOUTDOORS, Swansea i think, make sure you try them before you bye.

    A good day out for you and the Aged Derek, you know get him out of the house-help the aged etc.

    What about Armed Forces service issue boots Pete? They are quite affordable.;)

    Pete,
    The altbergs are the same as those issued to police firearms teams. I have found that they take no wearing in and would liken them to wearing a pair of carpet slippers. They are soooooo comfortable. Plus every single part of the boot is replaceable. I've just had mine refurbed at the factory. They will outlast you and never let you down. Can't speak highly enough about them. Brilliant
