Best non-neoprene turn-out bell boots

I was just wondering it there are any non-neoprene bell boots that would be suitable for turnout.
Currently I have a few pairs of these:
Double Lock Bell BootsWith Fleece - Dover Saddlery

However, the fleece absorbs water and gets muddy really easily. I was wondering it anyone knew of a brand that I could try?

I agree with the Davis bell boots. We leave bell boots on my horse 24/7, he has a thing with pulling off shoes. These last quite a long time and arent very expensive.

Any other brands, I think that this shape tends to no fit his feet well. Though I'll try them.

Would petal bell boots work? Totally customizable and the petals will move to fit his feet.

Are petal boots good for turnout?

I can't do pull-ons, they are too hard to get off for showing.

I have never turned out in them, but I don't see how they're any different from normal bells for turnout. I mean, if they hold up around **/*** cross country courses, why not in the field?

You just have to replace the top strap probably once a year or so because it can wear out. I have a pair for shows and I replace the strap every 6 months just because I don't want them to break and have all the little petals go scattering in a bajillion different places!

I used no-turn bell boots last year when my horse had a bad cut just above the hoof, however they wear out in no time. I got rubber ones and they are much better in my opinion. I do use no-turn to trailer though...
