Find the best Hunter wellies for you
Whether you live in the city or in the most remote parts of the countryside, everyone in the UK should own a pair of decent welly boots to tackle our notoriously wet weather. However, we know that not everyone will need a pair of heavy duty neoprene lined farming wellies, so here’s our review of the best wellies for men from our Hunter collection to help you pick your perfect pair.
Best wellies for farmers and outdoor work
The Hunter Field collection is the first port of call for anyone who works in agriculture or spends long days working outdoors on tricky terrains. Our top pick for farming wellies are the Hunter Field Balmoral Technical Zip Wellington Boots – yes, the name might be a bit of a mouthful, but they have all of the important features that you’ll need to ensure you’re warm, comfy, and supported while at work. These Balmoral boots include a 3mm neoprene lining for warmth, and a 100% natural rubber construction for flexibility and waterproofing. We’ve chosen these particular wellies as our best farming boots because of the Vibram® Commando Sole: these robust soles offer unbeatable grip on slippy surfaces and a wider cleat for expert mud release, and as it is crafted by Vibram, you can be sure it is an exceptionally durable sole. These particular Hunter boots feature a full YKK zip to the side which is great for those with a wider calf, and means they can be easily removed after a long day on your feet.
Best wellies for walking
If you’re off trekking long distances in the great outdoors, then we would always recommend a sturdy walking boot or a boot similar to the Hunter Balmoral Technical Zip Wellington Boots mentioned above, as these offer even greater grip on terrains such as rockier surfaces in wet weather. However, if your walking is less Bear Grylls and more We’re Going on a Bear Hunt across fields, down country lanes and beaten tracks, then the Men’s Hunter Field Side Adjustable Neoprene Wellington Boots will be great for you. Ideal for dog walking, leisurely rambles or heading out when the weather takes a turn, these men’s Hunter boots are neoprene lined like those above for extra warmth, but are considerably sleeker around the foot than the Balmoral collection. Designed in a similar manner to the iconic Hunter Original style, these side adjustable boots are lightweight but durable enough to withstand muddy tracks and fields in bad weather.
Best wellies for gardening
A pair of flexible boots are ideal for gardening – which is why we’ve chosen these Men’s Hunter Field Gardener Boots as our top pick for gardening wellies. The shorter length mean you can easily kneel down and tend to the beds while the toes stay protected with the reinforced rubber around the sole. As the Hunter Gardener Boots are designed to be worn while working in the garden, they have been specifically designed with a reinforced arch on the sole – or ‘dig pad’– to prevent any splitting or pain when using a spade or fork. often in a These 100% rubber boots are waterproof, making them great for watering, and have just enough grip for outdoor wear, but not so much that you would worry about tracks in your lawn.
