The Wellington boots
This pair of neoprene-lined Wellingtons, available from William Evans, zips completely down the back, is fully waterproof and, once worn in, is the ultimate in welly comfort.
‘I shoot in some pretty wild and remote locations, so my footwear has to be up to the job,’ says GB shooter and game Gun Rachel Carrie. ‘My Arxus pair was really put through its paces last season, including torrential rain and mud at Whitfield in Northumberland and 4ft of snow at Rievaulx in North Yorkshire. In all conditions, my feet stayed warm and dry all day.’ Arxus Primo Canvas Back Zip, £235 (020–7493 0415; www.williamevans.com)
