lovely boots, the only ones I've ever considered worthy enough to be re-soled (done by Meindl in Germany via UK importers, turn-around just over a week).


If I could only wear one pair of boots in all conditions, all year round, it would be these.

That's a bargain for them!

It was the Vakuum for me or the Altberg Tethera. In the end some altberg Tethera came up in my size and went for them. Though have tried Vakuums on. A nice boot!

That Osprey good value though not being funny. Making a rucksack with a white bottom. Do Osprey owners never have the need to put their rucksack on the floor?!

Got a pair of these. They are an old version (2012) so Goretex XCR, but I do not think that matters.

They are just what I want for the muddy season and look to be very good value.

Regarding the Osprey pack, I have one and just had to wash it as the bottom panel was getting rather grubby, I agree it's  a curious design decision to use a pale grey fabric for that part.

In other news, the Croc gaiters arrived, they look the part so may get to try them out this weekend. Thanks Kinkyboots for the heads-up on these.

Hi
Lidl have a 25ltr day bag for (I think) 15.
Mesh back,  most of the facilities needed plus rain cover.

If you know someone getting into walking might be worth a look.

Thanks Marshy Pete. Been looking for a day bag  with a well ventilated back. At that price I am happy to give it a go. Was going to buy a much more expensive Osprey. Will give this bag a chance over my Autumn walks.
Too little, too late, too bad......
