These boots are waterproof - I used my boots recently during a road trip where I was watching a Bald Eagle perched on an island. I was able to get closer to the Eagle by having these boots on (I could walk into the ocean shore a little further). The boots are little on the heavy side, something I wasn't expecting.

I didn't like these boots. They were very heavy, and the size fitting was awful. Size 7 was larger than size 8? I returned both boots (size 7 & 8) and brought Kamik boots instead.

Bought for my 15 year old son to work on farm. Warm, padded inside. Yes, runs about a size large, nothing a heavy pair of socks won't fix. Great quality boot. Of course excellent Zappos service, fast delivery.

Lightweight, comfortable, and warm. Order a 1/2 size smaller than your regular boot.

These are the third pair I've had. My feet are never cold. The sizes run a little big, but if you need extra socks they would be fine. I would buy these again.

I was so used to finding nothing but junk in the department stores that these boots vastly exceeded my expectations: Well insulated and fit perfectly right out of the box; soft flexible rubber makes them the most comfortable boots I've ever owned; a single draw string allows them to slide on and off in a flash and keeps the snow out; and high quality construction - all at a very reasonable cost! Looking forward to wearing them in the snow.

Okay. Not the best looking ladies boot. However, I did not buy these for style. I needed something that could handle the punch of a winter storm in Chicago and still get me through the slush and snow mountains my neighbors refuse to shovel on my way to the subway. These boots have no support so I added gel inserts and now they are perfect. They are soft, comfy, toasty warm. Best part, they slip on and off without a struggle like my former Sorels. I purchased these because they were still made in Canada unlike Sorels. The reviews sounded like some of the other buyers were doing a bit more hard core things than walking through snow storms in Chicago. So I decided to give it a go - at the price, how the heck could I not? They are awesome! and I think they are kind of stylish in a utilitarian way. That's how Sorels and Hunter got their fashion start - the utilitarian way. I also followed the other reviews and ordered a size down. My size in Men's is usually a 9 - 9.5 depending on style. I instinctively ordered a Men's 8 based on the reviews. They fit perfect! I love the tie around the top. No, rubbing or chafing. Thank you Baffin. Thank you Zappos. Thank you reviewers for helping my find a new pair of boots amidst a sea of other expensive disappointments.

Surprisingly warm and completely waterproof...make sure you order the correct size. These have a tendency to run a little large.

We live in Chicago. I bought these boots in my husband's size so we could both wear them while in the yard with our dogs in deep snow. These boots are fantastic! They're so warm that most times I'd put them on without socks and just run out there. Stayed out for over an hour shoveling snow and my toes were warm and toasty. I highly recommend these boots. They do run a size larger than marked.

Great boot for cold weather and waterproof conditions. If you have normal or narrow feet, order 1-2 sizes smaller (otherwise your heel will lift up in the boot). Mine had a strong gasoline odor when arrived, but after soaking in soap water and letting air out, the smell is only noticeable from up close...not sure if this is just mine or for the whole series.

These are great boots so far. They are relatively light yet durable are warm. I wear size 12 shoes and had to order a 10 to get a pair that fit. Honestly I could probably use a 9.

I wear 6E shoes and with regular socks these boots fit me. I used them for a few days of ice fishing and they were warmer than I expected in moderate winter temps (20s and 30s). I plan to put a felt insole in them to keep me just a bit farther off the frozen ground, and hope that doesn't snug them up so much that my feet get cold. I had good traction in these boots, and they were surprisingly comfortable, though I used them mostly on the flat surface of a frozen lake. I went for a 3 mile walk on the ice one day and had no complaints about comfort.

Good heavy boot, the drawstring at the top gives extra protection, but it does run big. I would suggest ordering a half size smaller than your normal shoe size.

I moved to the mountains and was looking for a good pair of waterproof boots as winter in October of 2010 was coming on read reviews of different types of snow boots and settled on ordering a pair Baffin Hunter boots SKU: #7176881. They arrived in two days after I placed the order with Zappos. Good thing too as on November 17th it started to snow and it has set all records to date with deep snow on the ground here for months. That's over 100 inches and more on the way at this writing. Bottom line, these boots have served me well and me feet do not get cold and no leaks at all. I spend almost everyday out side all day working in the snow at least 5 hours a day. If you have the need for waterproof hard working snow boots then these are the ones you are looking for. I will be ordering them again if they are on the market next time I need what I thank is the best deal around. I paid less for mine and hope they will be still for sale by the time these finely wear out, but I do not see them degrading after all this time.

The boots are just great for the snow. They felt almost 2 sizes larger than marked, but after I found the right size I was more than happy with the boots. Really! After all the snow, these boots are just incredible. Your feet will be dry and warm for hours.

These boots are warm, very well-made, but extremely large and not true-to-size at all. I ordered an 8 for my son who takes a 7.5 - and they are a little big for my husband, who takes a size 9! Order down at least one size, and you'll have a sturdy, warm and totally awesome snow-shoveling boot.

Just what I wanted! I can slip into them with bare feet in the morning to walk the dog, or use socks and wrap my jeans into them to clear the snow. Either way my feet are comfortable, dry, and warm! Great traction and flexibility.

My boyfriend loves them. He usually takes an 11 1/2 in a shoe and I tried the 11 in the boot. I had to exchange them for a 12. Maybe they run a little small? They keep him dry and warm in all the snow we have had.

These boots were very impressive right out of the box. The only way your feet will be wet is if snow or water gets in the top. The only problem with them is that they are hard to tie at the top, but other than that, they are great. They do have a steel toe and are therefore heavier than your normal boot. These are very warm and well insulated.

Great pair of boots. Another review said they run half a size big. I usually wear 10.5 for everything, and they only had 10. I got them and they fit perfectly. They are really nicely insulated, and I can’t wait to try them out in the snow.

These boots are great footwear for snow and cold, wet conditions. My feet are warm and very comfortable on the coldest days when I'm wearing my Baffin Hunters. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase.

Probably the fourth pair of these I have owned. The first 3 were unbranded and sold somewhere else. This pair is a little lighter and the rubber formula seems to be different (for the better). The liner is also different and the only problem I find there, is when you put them on, you have to make sure you hold onto the liner to keep it from sliding down into the boot. They are large for the size indicated.

These boots ran true to size, and my son says they are very warm in addition to being water proof. That's been a big plus during the cold, rainy winter we've had so far. He also tells me they're quite comfortable despite being "pretty heavy." If someone you know needs solid, water-proof footwear and doesn't mind trudging around with leg weights, these are the boots for you!

These boots are completely waterproof and very warm, but they are enormous (order a full size smaller than you usually wear) and very heavy. They are inexpensive compared to other boots, and they do the job (once you get the right size), so they were the right purchase for my son, who is still growing, but for myself I would be willing to spend more money for a boot that allowed easier mobility.
