5 Thumbs up for Brit Colt Boots, even for fat legs
 
My Brit Colts arrived today and I'm already in love.

I was worried first of all because the box felt so light, and when I opened it up and saw these sleek elegant (well as elegant as winter type boots ever are) THIN looking boots my heart sank. I thought I would never fit in them for sure.

I went to pull them on, wondering if I was going to need a set of pliers, or some specialist equipment, but I shouldn't of worried, they just slipped straight on :clap:

Having got them on they were so comfortable I left them on while I was doing house work, until my feet got so hot I just had to go and do chores. It's not that cold out, we do have a nice layer of snow, and it's 18*F, and my feet stayed nice and warm. I felt secure walking about, didn't slip or slide, so far as I say :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

I may even give them more when I ride in them,

I've had mine for a year now and love them. I rode the other day in like -20C and I was still warm. At least my toesies were!

I love them so much! I can even walk in them all day hunting and my feet are fine all day!

Are those muck boots? I tried to search (to check the price), but all I could find was Brit Colt muck boots.

Golden Horse 11-21-2011 10:30 PM

Yup, Brit Colts by Muck Boots:wink:

Hm m m. They look neat. Is there any kind of lining or insulation? If not, how do they keep you warm? I dont' think I would be warm in just plain rubber, but maybe I'm wrong.

QHriderKE 11-22-2011 06:03 PM

It's kind of like the material they use in wetsuits... hard to explain. Water resistant and light. The foot part, as you can see, is rubber, but there is also a layer of insulation.

tinyliny 11-22-2011 06:52 PM

so the part around your foot, not just the calf, has neoprene (wetsuit material) inside of the harder, outside layer?

Golden Horse 11-22-2011 07:12 PM

That's it Tiny, it is like a neoprene boot, but the foot part has a hard rubber cover bonded to it, just like a normal rubber boot.

I like in my Muck Boots, I bought the Chore Boots a couple of years ago and I wear them every day, apart from a few short weeks in the summer:lol:

The Colts are going to be my go to riding boots for sure

tinyliny 11-22-2011 07:19 PM

ok, I can see that. I like that they dont' have any cleats on them. Riding in cleats would be dangerous. I might get me some of those. I usually have to go way down through a lot of mud to find the critters. So, muck type riding boots would be good. HOw much ?

Golden Horse 11-22-2011 08:05 PM

LOL, well mine came in partial trade for a colt, turns out the lady who bought him is a distributor:wink:

I usually see them running between $100 - $120
