They look very similar in design to my 7mm Gul "Powerboots", which are alright.

If they're standard "Osprey " quality though, they're probably shit, and sold by petrol stations and Tesco.

I had a pair very similar to these when I first started and they were great for about 4 months, then they just started ballooing and taking on loads of water every time I'd wear them.

Honestly, I think it'll be cheaper in the long-run to just buy a decent quality more expensive pair in the first place for the sake of an extra £15-20, than buy these for the time being then sack'em off 6 months down the line like I did and end up buying another pair anyway. "Buy cheap buy twice," and all that....
