Have had the Discovery Rain boots for over 2 years. Served me well for over 70,000 km and two big trips. Lots of rain, the odd water crossing and walking in big puddles. One occaision I had damp toes, rest of the time dry as a bone. Would recommend the boots, but for me, would like a little stiffer sole and maybe a little more breathing in hot weather. When these are ready to be replaced will likely go with the Adventure Gore-Tex.
