I've just splashed out on a pair of really good wellies so I looked at lots of brands. Apparently Hunters used to be good quality but are now made to a different specification and have gone seriously downhill. I needed a pair of wellies that I could go long walks in (with dog) so my priority was comfort, grip and being long-lasting. I ended up with Aigle Parcours and they are completely fabulous - more comfy than slippers, and as good as my hiking boots over mud and rocks. Ten mile walk no problem, and nice and warm too. But you do pay for them - mine were just over £100.
For gardening I mainly wear my hiking boots, but that's cos our garden is on a 1:3 slope and made of rocks!
