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.

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!

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

I have not had a chance to try these Baffin Impacts 08 out yet as I purchased them during warm weather. But they do feel tight around my foot. I am 8 1/2 and ordered a 9 and felt tight. Other reviews said they loosen up after wear...we will see. As far as warmth, not sure. They seem like they would be warm. Haven't worn them around with wool socks. They do come up pretty high up my calf. Overall looks like great boots. Hope they perform as well as they look.

from McMurdo Station, Antarctica & Chautauqua, New York USA

The Baffin Impact 08 is the boot I ordered for working in McMurdo Station Antarctica. It met all the size and performance parameters I needed for the climate I was going to be working in. As a Heavy Equipment Operator contractor who works exclusively outside on the Antarctic Ice Shelf building and maintaining Ice Runways, Roads, Airfields landing surface and launch facilities for NASA and USAF for the United States Antarctic Program the boots had to be warm, light weight, have exceptional traction, and most importantly fit my large foot,(15EE) The Baffin Boot exceeded my expectations, they lasted a full two seasons wearing them every day. The only design challenge of this Impact 08 version war the nylon upper got caught on things as I entered the cabin seating of the various equipment seating support occasionally tearing the uppers, and the Insert wore out at the heal unexpectedly after one season, and I ordered a new pair of inserts. The boots are currently ready for a third season, but I am going to have a second pair of Baffin APEX as back ups. There is nothing more important that the freedom of knowing your feet will be warm as toast, in an eight layer special designed insert that fits like a glove, a waffle sole and reflective “air bubble” underfoot and cold rated to -100°C/-148°F. Cold feet,. No Worries! Order BAFFINS!

Brands I'd also recommend: Nothing quite like these boots,no other brand has these design features.

Got these for snowmobiling and found them to be perfect for my needs. They are a big bulky boot, but they keep your feet very warm and dry. What I really like about them it how easy they go on and come off, it's like sliding your feet into big slippers.

I had just heard Tony S [Zappos CEO] speak in Vegas, and was impressed but had never shopped Zappos. Also had exhausted LL Bean boot possibilities so I thought I would give Zappos a try. I am glad I did. I need a warm winter boot with traction that was a slip on. Easy on & off. I couldn't determine if they were the right fit online so I ordered 5 pair of boots, and unfortunately none of them fit. Right after I ordered the 5, Zappos alerted me that the Baffos were available in my size, so I ordered that pair too. They were great and I kept them. Ordered size 11 and they fit perfect [I am a 10.5-11], were pretty easy to slip on, extremely warm for snowblowing, and helped me make it through a brutal Chic winter of about 70" of snow and many sub zero temps. Even took the boots on a trip to pond hockey tourney where it was -10, and never had a cold toe. Only comment I would make is I wish they were a bit lower/smaller - they are a bit too high at about 12" [upper shin height]. Returned the other 5 pair of boots no problem. Will definitely shop Zappos again. Outstanding!

These replaced a pair of LaCrosse Iceman boots I bought close to 25 years ago. I've worn them once to blow snow and they are far more comfortable than the Iceman they replaced. They are also far, far easier to put on and take off than lace-up boots. These are quality boots for anyone spending a lot of time in the cold outdoors.

These boots are great. Have not had much experience with other brands being in Florida for 28 years but now I'm back in cold country to appease my wife's longing for the fam. Anyway, this has been one bitch of a winter and these boots at least comfort my feet. True fit to size. Warm warm warm all day long. Get 'em!

I live in North Dakota and have some very cold weather to deal with. My other pack boots were just not keeping my feet warm. Did a lot of research and liked what I read about Baffin boots. I decided to try the impact boot out. Well I am impressed. Spent several hours outside moving snow with the ATV and shoveling. It was 23 deg below zero and my feet never got cold. Very light weight boot for the size and very comfortable. I ordered 1 size larger because I like to wear wool socks; otherwise I think my regular size would be fine.

Love the boots. Warmest I've ever had, bordering on too hot at times. They are very tall and come within a few inches of my knee which I like. Super soft inside, kind of like moon boots. My only knock on them is they run really small. I wear a 9.5 and ordered an 11 based on the other reviews and they fit pretty tight. When I first tried them on I considered sending them back and getting a bigger size. I kind of like them loose to get more air/warmth in the toes and these are definitely snug. However, I ended up keeping them and they feel great. That is the right size for me. Amazingly light for a boot that big. Overall fantastic.

These boots are everything advertised and more. They have a great snug fit and the interior just forms to your feet. I cannot wait to give these a real try with all this cold weather in northern Minnesota.

Amazing! My feet have never been warmer! I was deer hunting in a morning when it was 1 degree, with a wind chill of -5. Hands- numb, face-numb, feet- toasty! They feel a little small when you first put them on, but the cushining will conform to your feet and fit better. I am normally an 11, and the 11 fit well. Easy to put on/off. Comfortable to walk in, although not the most agile boots I own they are the warmest by far.

I purchased Bafflin's Impact boots for two reasons. I wanted warm feet and I needed them for snowshoeing. It was recommended that I order a size larger than my regular shoe size. I did. They fit perfectly. The unfortunate part of the purchase was that the toe box is so large (say gigantic!) that I was unable to place them in either of my Tubbs snowshoe bindings. I am positive that they would have kept my feet warm. However, I returned them in my quest to find insulated winter boots for snowshoeing. Zappos has outstanding customer service and return policy that rivals L.L. Bean.

My husband loves them, says it's like walking on clouds, they are amazingly light for the size (they are HUGE). We haven't had any super cold temperatures yet, but they appear to be able to hold out snow and cold!

These are great boots. They are easy to put on and take off. They are warm and comfortable for all around use. I was ice fishing for 12 hours in them and never got cold feet. They also have great ankle support.

Enjoy this boot. I did an exchange for a size larger, which occurred in true Zappos fashion - fast and without hassle. This was done after following Baffin recommendation for size checking. I have worn them around the house. They are comfortable. I can hardly wait for Ice fishing. I am confident they will perform admirably.

I ordered a size 9 in the Control Max which was too tight in the foot, especially the toes; since there was no size 10 available in the Control Max I ordered a size 10 the Impact 08 along with the Shackleton model; at first they both felt snug but gradually loosened up but the Impact was loose in the heel even with the lower strap pulled tight. I didn't care for the heel sliding up & down (the strap should be tighter). The Shackleton has the D rings & laces tighter to hold the heel in place. Both felt very warm; however, I chose the Shackleton for that reason!
