We review the Arctic Sport Muck Boots that will keep your feet dry and cosy whatever the weather

Devon Life Editor gives his Muck Boots a thorough ‘road test’ on a Dartmoor walkDevon Life Editor gives his Muck Boots a thorough ‘road test’ on a Dartmoor walk

If you’re sent a pair of wellies to test – as the folks at Muck Boots kindly asked me to – then you might as well REALLY put them through their paces.

So that’s what I did. As a devotee of walking on Dartmoor, this time I consulted my pocket guide looking for the wettest possible way to take them…and with the weather like it had been – and advice that my planned route around Fernworthy Forest “gets extremely boggy in places” – I didn’t have to go far.

What I am pleased to report is that a) the guide was as good as its word and b) my splendid new boots more than stood up to the test. Removing them back at the car after a three-hour yomp over moor, tor and more boggy patches than I could keep count of, my feet were warm, dry and not a sign of a blister.

Not only that - the Arctic Sport Muck Boot model I was sporting has a stretch-fit topline binding which keeps your legs snug from knee downwards. They’re light, flexible and even have a thermal foam underlay added to the instep for extra comfort when walking. If it hadn’t been for the remnants of Dartmoor bog gathered around the soles as a reminder of the terrain we had traversed, I might even have slept in them!
