Rated 5 out of 5┬áby CJinVA Perfect additional to boot collection!
I already have original high gloss Hunters and love that these are lighter weight for both walking and packing purposes.
Not sure about Madewell CS rep comment that sizing is different for Madewell than other Hunter retailers. I compared sizing info on this box to my other pair and is identical: difference is with Hunter, not Madewell. Generally US7 = EU37 but for Hunter they convert EU37 = US6. Buy your European size! I wear US 6.5/7 or EU37 and Hunter 6 is perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Jeanlover88 Love these packables
I purchased these in navy last season, and I still love and recommend them. They have held up wonderfully! Early last fall, I bought a pair of Hunter originals but found them to be a bit heavy and "clunky" for my personal taste, so I decided to swap them for the tours. I love these rain boots! They are half the weight of the originals and move far better when walking. I tried both a size down and my true shoe size, and found that with heavy socks, my true shoe size fit best. I don't believe they run as large as the originals. I just bought the short adjustable wellies from Madewell, and I recommend them just as much! They fit very similar in the foot bed as the packable tour boots. I am officially starting my Hunter boot collection.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Meags26 Great for commuters or travel.
Thank you Hunter for making these! I use these all the time as a commuter (Chicago can have unpredictable weather) & love that I can pack them when I travel. I wear a 7.5/8 & bought them in a W7/UK5. They fit perfectly. Others who have mentioned not being able to fit the fleece socks in should look at the Hunter shearling insole. Great for colder temps. I found these to be lighter & more flexible than the originals, which for me was a win. I can't see how anyone could be disappointed with them.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Jess212 Great boot!
This is way better than my Hunter originals. They're super comfortable and flexible. I'm 5'3" 120lb, a 7.5 - 8 shoe size and purchased the 7. I don't know if my boot liner will fit. It's a comfortable fit but an accurate one, leaving little room for a the relatively thick fabric of the Hunter boot liners. If I find them, I'll update this.
Overall I could not be happier. They're lightweight, packable, comfortable--just a great upgrade. No more worries about snow and wet weather! Toss these in your backpack or big satchel when you arrive at your destination.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby cwb25 Great boots!
These wellies are great! Even after being packed, they keep their original shape. They are thinner/lighter than normal rain boots, and if you are in colder weather you might need the thick boot socks.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Anonymouse Feels much better on than the tall originals!
A previous reviewer said that madewell sizing is different for hunters but I followed my gut and ordered size 6 coz that is my size in the tall originals that I purchased from a different retailer. I usually wear size 6.5 to size 7 shoes and I find the size 6 hunter tour is perfect although I am not gonna be able to wear thick fleece socks...regular socks are perfect.
I have also tried on size 7 and I found that it was too clunky to be comfortable. Maybe with fleece socks it would be a great fit.
So pick your size depending on whether you like to wear the fleece socks or not. Hope that helps!

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby llewola Simple, Chic & Practicle
I was hesitant at first to follow the website's sizing because I did some research on Hunter wellies and a lot of customers advised to size down. A super helpful and lovely representative discussed with me that Madewell's sizing is a little different from other Hunter distributers. I'm a size 8.5 and ordered a size 9. I'm happy to report that she was correct on the sizing and it fit perfectly.
I really like my new Hunter wellies. They're simple, classy, and very practicle for my commute. They fit well and have enough room for thicker socks in colder climate. They are comfortable to walk in. They are 'packable' so the sturdiness of the plastic boot is a bit more flimsey/moveable then I would imagine a regular Hunter rain boot to be, but I feel that's just an aesthetic preference. Good wellies overall.

Rated 1 out of 5┬áby Meli82 Looks cheap!
You might as well get the Original boots. These boots, although the design is the same as the originals, look cheap! The fact that the shaft is flexible makes for some unflattering bumps and creases on the calf area of the boots. They don't look as nice nor as expensive as the Originals, they look like knockoffs.
