Baffin - Arctic Winter Boot

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 8"
    Weight: 225 lbs
    Size Purchased: 11

1st winter in PA. Moved from TX and it has been a COLD one. Just purchased a lab pup and his potty breaks would not have been good without these boots. Very warm, the piled up snow was easy to navigate in my backyard. Also made snow shoveling for my first winter very easy since my toes stayed warm!!! Can't wait to go hunting in these bad boys next fall/winter.

Excellent cold weather boot!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This is a great cold weather boot. Yep, they're big. As in getting in/out of cars and pressing pedals takes a little getting used to, but these are going to keep your feet dry and warm in the white stuff. Even the slushy stuff. Even the standing on a frozen lake for hours stuff.
If you're looking for a boot to keep your feet warm and dry and don't mind having the boot a bit big try these.

Terrible, terrible, TERRIBLE

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Purchased these boots twice, bad idea. The first pair were returned because they squeaked something fierce with every step. I reordered since they were so comfy and light on the feet. Now after a few months of use they are coming apart at the seams where the leather and rubber meet. It almost looks like the rubber is melting, boot dryer too hot???? OK. Not impressed..

Terrible, terrible, TERRIBLE

Hi there,
Unfortunately we only have this one last size in stock, and currently do not have any more of this model ordered to come in. Sorry about that!

Fine product, great service

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I live in northern Minnesota where the average temp the last 2 months as been near zero with wind chills averaging -15. I needed some warm footware for shoveling the driveway and hiking. the Baffin Evolution's are excellent, warm, reasonable flexible, and good looking. I'm very satisfied. Backcountry did a great job communication and quickly shipping the boots. Thanks.

It looks like we have indeed ordered more sizes in both black and worn brown. They won't be here in time for Christmas, but check back again in early 2014 to see if we have them up yet!

Good cold weather boots

These are like a somewhat warmer version of the caribou boots. They're definitely comfortable, and seem to have a pretty high warmth/bulkiness ratio. I took them on a trip to Greenland and was pretty pleased; my feet only got cold during prolonged standing around at ~ -20 F. The insulation on the bottom between the foot and sole is easily compressed, so I recommend getting thick insoles to boost the warmth a bit.

I wear size 11 in normal shoes, should I...

I wear size 11 in normal shoes, should I get size 11 or 12 in these? Thanks.

With normal socks you could probably get by with the 11's but if you plan on wearing the thick wool socks (don't know if you would need them) then I would move up to the 12's.

baffin control max boots

boots are very comfortable and warm and the lugs on the bottom and excellent in preventing slipping.

Does anyone know if they fit pretty close...

Does anyone know if they fit pretty close to normal shoes. I wear a 10/10.5 in sneakers.

Most Pac boots are designed to be worn with thick socks so they will probably fit a little looser than tennis shoes.

forget wearing straight-leg jeans with these

Forgot to mention... only down side is that the cuff is so large, guessing most people will find what I did: that you'll be unable to fit straight-leg jeans over the boot. Boot cuts should work fine. That said, likely that if it's cold enough for you to wear this boot, you're likely going to be wearing something other than jeans to keep your legs warm... probably a pant with some kind of gaitor, in which case this consideration won't matter.

Most comfortable winter boot ever worn

Once I put them on, I didn't want to ever take them off. Like a cushy, warm, supportive, slipper. The cuff design is very similar to a ski boot. Incredibly comfortable. Compared to Evolution model, Control Max has slightly higher cuff; I found it to be more comfortable. Also, Evolution model is harder to tie closed; loops are much smaller and tighter. Big loops on Control Max make getting in/out easier. Fantastic piece of gear.
