These boots are made for workin’

by Mars

… and that’s just what they’ll do. We’re always on the look out for good quality Wellington boots. We were approached by the team at Dikamar to try out their boots on our smallholding and they sent across their Alpha Trace agriculture and gardening boots. The wellies are made from polyurethane (PU) which makes them light and very flexible. They’re also grease and oil resistant and have thermal insulation down to -40C. Find out what we thought.

Dikamar appear to have a good understanding of the material properties required in a wellington boot – toughness, abrasion resistance, wide temperature range, suppleness [we materials engineers call this “low modulus” – which really translates to flexibility and comfort] while having great inherent resistance to ozone – which is the component of the atmosphere, present everywhere, responsible for the severe cracking at flexing points [leading to leaks] which has bedevilled Hunter [and some other] boots of late. Coupled with good design for purpose, and they are surely on to a winner. I shall be interested to follow your progress with them – but I do fully expect them to do well!

Sounds great, guys. I’d not heard of them before. The challenge that I have is finding good quality boots that fit my wide calves, so I’ll look and see if they do wider fittings ????
