Clothing for us Humans
I use to except getting wet as part of the norm, something that one just had to except when walking dogs. Then we found products that really did keep you dry, whatever the weather and even when jumping into streams,
Sheer Bliss. Being out all day with the dogs, or even just for an hour, can be ruined when wet and cold or uncomfortable.
Below is the clothing that we have tried and tested and found to be worth every penny. Though I will include some we haven't tried ourselves but have had been told are of a good standard and value for money, and I will state if we haven't tried the product ourselves.

I Say of Harkila trousers
they are the one thing I would chose not to be without. You can jump into rivers with them and be totally secure in the knowledge you will stay dry. Push your way through the bramble without fearing the 'rip sound' that you would get with inferior clothing. They are warm, and yet I never get to hot in them. They are as comfortable as you could wish for from a pair of trousers, you will fall in love them!

I SayDovre Extreme GTX
A fantastic boot and again, something I would not want to be without. These take me everywhere, be that streams fields or rocky hills and I always feel totally secure in them. They are slightly heavy but that is something I am very happy to put up with when the bonuses so out-weigh that one thing.
