    Had a pair of Grubs. Leaked like sieve after a year.
    Just bought Quattros on special at Farmlands. Bloody comfy, but it is still cosy up here so can't comment on warmth

    Not so much about warmth , I'm sure they both as good there , more about durability . The Quattros appear more robust than Muck

    Quatro's have done me well, although mine aren't steel cap and I don't know if they have an option for it?
    Had them for maybe approaching a year now.. CRT will often special them for $40 or so off a pair, good time to buy.

    They've taken a fair bit of abuse in the deer shed and shrugged it off, stomping grinding hooves etc..
    Haven't noticed my feet ever feel cold in them yet, though this weekend is my first time using them in snow. No complaints today though walking around in 10 inches of the cold stuff..

    They are comfy, but heavy and quite rigid. I went for the calf-length as tend to do a bit more walking in them than some and found that much nicer to walk with than the tall ones.
