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!

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'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.

Very warm and cozy. They are a little bulky to walk much in them but for tasks like clearing snow from the driveway, they are perfect. Also, I wouldn't recommend them for driving. The are so bulky that I kept hitting both the gas and brake at the same time.

from Upper Peninsula of Mi.

This is a very warm boot which provides good traction. It is very tight fitting which makes it hard to slide your foot into the boot without your pant leg sliding up as you slide the boot on. I do not like to walk in with this boot because my socks slide back and forth on my foot as I walk. I live in a cold climate so I always have to wear some type of outer clothing which has to go over the boot to the ankle. I find it hard to zip up my outer clothing over the boot because the boot is so large. It may be a good product for snowmobiling or standing outside in very cold weather watching an outdoor event. Sorry to be so negative but I find this boot to be very warm, very large but also light. At the same time, uncomfortable to move around in. I end up just using my Lacrosse Icemans and sorry I bought this boot.

Brands I'd also recommend: Lacrosse Icemans or Ice kings

Baffin Impact seems to be well made and very warm. I returned it as it runs small and they don't make a bigger size. The only negative on the boot construction is that the buckle system doesn't get tight enough which allows the boot slip around while walking. Adding a middle buckle might fix that issue.

These boots look to be high quality. I am looking forward to going ice fishing. I originally ordered the normal size but that was too small so I ordered the next size up and they fit correctly. I had no hassles whatsoever from Zappos. Zappos is a pleasure to do business with!

I bought a pair of these boots a year ago. I can't say enough about them super comfortable, light, easy to take on and off. Feet stay dry and warm. After reading the reviews on size I am a 9/5. So I got a size 10 they fit perfect best snow I've ever owned. :)

I only tried these on for size and comfort. However, I can tell by the construction of the boot that it would be a supremely warm boot and completely snow proof if you are working in deep snow. My feet and calves were completely surrounded by a very thick layer of insulation, between the thick, removable, inner, liner and the outer boot. Not only were these boots comfortable, they were the easiest boot to put on and take off. (No laces) Because these are such extreme boots for the Washington DC metro area, I felt it would be more than what I would need for the majority of occasions. I want something I can possibly wear to work. If I wore them to work, it would draw a lot of attention. They are cool looking none-the-less. The boots covered my entire calf, up to my knees. they are two wide around the calf to wear typical pants over. So the pants had to be tucked into the boot. If I were not concerned about over spending, I would keep these boots for the rare times we have two, back-to-back, 3 foot snow storms.

By far the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. I needed go gear up for cold Minnesota winters, so I ordered several of the top winter boots. These stood out above the rest. They feel like I'm walking on air. Impressive design. I heartily endorse them.

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.

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.
