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.

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.

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!

I needed cheap, warm, waterproof boots to ease the pain of taking a puppy out at 4:00 am. These boots seemed to fit the bill. I was pleasantly surprised by the warmth and quality of the boots, especially considering their price point. These boots work perfectly for my needs. The only downside is the fitment. I wear a size 12 shoe, so I bought a size 12 boot, it seemed logical. Unfortunately the boots wind up 'slipping' off while walking. I look somewhat ridiculous because I look like a kid learning to walk, very large steps to avoid them slipping. While walking through snow this isn't really an issue. While walking on sidewalks, it becomes comical. My recommendation would be to perhaps size down? Either that, or don't plan on climbing Everest in these. Outside of that, they're great.

Baffin Hunter - The short time from placing the order to receiving the order was the best mailorder I ever had. The boots are comfortable and easy to get on and off. I would like to be able to get extra felt liners that are thicker. I have diabetes and as a result, have poor circulation, making my feet very cold.

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.

Recently took these on a fishing trip to Alaska. They did just fine. As other reviewers have noted, they do run extremely large. I wear a 9, ordered an 8, and had to return it for a 7. Even the 7 is a bit loose. The boots are good looking - even better than in the photos.

My size is 10 1/2. I ordered size 9 still too big. I called Zappos and asked them to change it for size 7. They emailed me the UPS label and just after I hang up the phone I saw on my account that is already in process and after an hour I got a shipping confirmation already. That is how good Zappos is. Can't get anything wrong with them. So back to the boots - after using it for 4 months then I can finally rate it. I would say order 3 sizes lower and you will be fine. I took out the inner liner. It is spring already when I used it. I need to put a Dr. Scholls sports padding Because it is still big and need a padding inside. I used it for gardening. It was waterproof and comfortable (with the help of Dr. Scholls). It is the best rubber boot for the price, you can't beat Zappos.

Honestly I wanted to get my husband a pair of kKamiks but they were out of his size. My kids and I have Kamik brand boots and though the Kamiks seem a higher quality overall, these Baffin boots are pretty good. Can't beat the price and my husband said they are comfortable and keep his feet warm and dry. Bought them because he does snow plowing and is out in the weather a lot. He will also use them for hunting season. He wears a 10.5 in sneakers and the size 10 boot fit.
