Super warm and dry. The lightest boot I have ever had. May look big but super light.

First let me say great service. I ordered on a Saturday and recieved them Monday. The boots seemed tight when I first put them on but after an hour of wearing they fit like a glove. I can't wait for some real cold weather to put the boots to the test. Great job Zappos !

These are taller than I expected, coming up over halfway to my knee, but that's OK, more to keep warm. Super warm, seem well constructed - time will tell. Simple buckles for quick on/off and lightweight. They are tight but I've had similar boots with thick Therma-plush and it does loosen up over time.

I bought these boots for snowmobiling and they are the warmest boots I have ever worn. I wear a womens 9 and the boots fit well. At first I thought they were too tight but after several wearings the extremely padded insert compressed. The boots are a bit bulky but lightweight for their size.

I've ice fished for over 25 years and I've owned a number of the best boots out there. These are far and away the warmest boots I've ever owned. Well worth the money!

Perfect snow boot to go stomping around in deep snow. With aggressive snow traction and reflective striping, this boot is good to walk around in subzero arctic temps or cruise the streets of a mountain town. Currently using these in Breckenridge, CO and have no problem with them. Bought size 9 for a 9½ foot. The liner is so cushy that you can fit a foot a little larger than the full size. Had a size 10 before and that was a little too loose in the heel to do serious trekking around.

This boot saved my husband's leg in a sledding accident! This is a serious boot. The padded upper construction is not only warm and well made, it cushioned the impact of his leg against a hidden block of ice at the bottom of suicide hill. While he still had a significant injury to that leg, he clearly would have broken it without the superior build of this boot. Suffice to say, I am a believer in this boot. Previous pair lasted 10 years.

First, maybe I’ve led a sheltered internet life, but Zappos is consistently the best shopping experience on or off the net. I bought the Baffin Impact boots because I could not find anything that would keep my feet warm. My toes just get cold. We don’t have any real cold extremes here (couple of mornings in single digits, afternoons at least 20 this year), but my toes get very cold easily. I had some other pac boots that would not keep them warm so I tried several versions of boots with between 1000 and 2000 grams of thinsulate insulation. Nothing worked. I am outside all day with little or no opportunity to get someplace warm and the only way I could stay 1/2 comfortable was to wear 2 pairs of socks with hand warmer packs in between. That compromise had weaknesses, especially having to walk up to 12 hours a day with lumps in your socks. I tried the Baffin Impact because of the reviews here, and they worked as advertised. They keep my feet warm and my feet don’t sweat even on 40 degree afternoons. My reason for writing the review is to let you know when you buy them in your size, they fit really tight at first. But wear them around the house an hour or two, and it works. They are so tight at first you will think there is no way, but give them a chance. After they break in for an hour or two, they are still very snug, but I think that is part of what makes them work so well. When I first got them I worked 8 - 12 hour days in a row either in an unheated, uncabbed bobcat or walking through a mix of snow and salt in the two back to back east coast blizzards, they were almost perfect. Except for the heel being a little on the loose side compared to the rest of the fit, they were perfect. The heel being a little loose did not create any irritation though. And for such a large boot they are almost light. I usually take a EE and they only come in one width, but the boot seems to conform to your foot, so the width was fine.

I ordered these boots for my son, who uses them for snowmobiling. He rode last weekend in very cold weather and said they were awesome! He wore regular socks and his feet were never cold nor did they sweat. Also, I placed this order at 8:00 at night and received them the next day! Awesome service Zappos!

I echo Quinn B, and add am unsure how anything could be more comfortable, warm, or securing. The boots regulate surprising well; little/no moisture build-up whether standing or hard snow-shoeing. Remove bootie and keep in sleeping-bag or wear to sleep. My size 13 foot gives this boot dimensions of: 14" L and 6" W (heel width 4.25"), so I don't suggest trying to drive anything other than a UPS truck while wearing. These may max out some snowshoe bindings/clearances, and I had to hammer out the lips on my crampons. The external straps work well, but given the thickness of the bootie, it's hard to sufficiently tighten them to lock the heel for running etc. I just unscrewed a ratcheting buckle-strap from an old set of snowboard bindings, connected them with 7 inches of webbing, and slip that down to the ankle when I anticipate the need. When you do = unstoppable.

Great boots. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Extremely lightweight for the size (they are huge). Great insulation.
