Wellington boots are there to provide us with warmth and comfort when on a long walk either alone or with family and friends. Most of all, they stop our feet from getting covered in muck and mud when the weather has been unfavourable – which is particularly handy in the UK! In this guide, we look at the best welly boot bags and where you can buy them. Complete with welly boot bag reviews, it’s the only guide you’ll need to find the perfect container.
How to Choose a Welly Boot Bag
Choosing a welly boot bag is not a particularly complex choice, as while there are quite a few brands and models the designs do not differ a great deal. One of the main things to look at when it comes to choosing your boot bag is whether or not it is water resistant. A water resistant welly boot bag can help to improve drying time as well as prevent leakage and further dampening of your boots.
A boot bag should have some form of ventilation, as this means that your shoes will tend to dry faster and are less likely to grow mould or start to smell. This also means that if the boots are forgotten, you won’t have to worry about them being potentially damaged when you open up the bag. Nor will you need to be prepared for a foul smell.
A reinforced base is also important. This is because the thick material will not only help to prevent the bag tearing due to weight but will also stop water and other liquid from seeping out while it is stationary or in transit. It can be a very handy additional feature.
Always make sure you read the reviews before you commit to a purchase and don’t associate the price tag with the quality of the item until you have done so. The reviews can tell you a lot about an item and people’s satisfaction with it. They can be a great guide to deciding which product is best for you.
Things to Look for
When looking at different types of bag, it is important to note the little features. Things like an additional strap to go over the shoulder can be very handy – especially if you need to carry your welly boot bag over long distances. It saves your hands and leaves them free from more important tasks.
Making sure you get a bag that will fit your welly boots is important as well. This is especially important id you have larger feet, such as a size 13. Always check the listing carefully before you buy to make sure that it will not only fit your type of welly boot (tall, short, etc.) but that it will take boots in your foot size.
A boot bag that is easy to clean is often incredibly useful. After all, washing out dried clumps of mud from a fabric bag can be rather tiresome and so looking for something that is easy to clean can be very advantageous to you both in terms of time and effort. A polyester inside can be particularly beneficial.
