Baffin Impact Snow Boot - Men's
Are these boot s100% waterproof?
Are these boot s100% waterproof?
Perfect for deep snow.
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I live in Minnesota, and these boots have been great for keeping my feet warm. The pull string on the top is perfect for keeping the snow out, even though it's probably not even needed since the boots go up to my knees. The buckles are something that I had searched for because they are much easier for getting them on and off, especially when the fingers get cold. They are a little bulky for walking on the sidewalk, or the first snow, but if you plan on finding your own way in the winter, then you're going to want these boots.
Does thiw boot come in a EEE width? If...
Does thiw boot come in a EEE width? If not do you have any boot that is comparible in a triple E width. Need a size 10 triple EEE.
I'm working full time as a lift operator...
I'm working full time as a lift operator at Mt. Baker this season, and am determined to find a boot that will keep my feet warm and dry! What boot would be the best for this the Baffin Impact, Sorel Caribou, Sorel Glacier, Sorel Trail boot? I have always had a problem with uber cold toes while working on the mountain. Are there any boots out there that are not made in China?
Well, how did you make out last year? I bought Baffin Endurance at the end of last year to replace my old Baffins (bought in 1992 and still have original liner......seem between upper & rubber finally ripped). Baffin still has some of its products made in China but many are made in Canada (Stony Creek, Ontario) and supposedly the rest may be on their way back to being made in Canada. Those that are made in Canada (like mine) are labelled so. http://www.investinhamilton.ca/baffin-boots-helping/
I HAVE AN EXTRA WIDE FOOT. DO THESE...
I HAVE AN EXTRA WIDE FOOT. DO THESE RUN LARGE OR SMALL. I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND ANYTHING IN 3E.
Not wide enough for a 3E, hit up Baffin directly, they might be able to help you out.
Would be 5 stars except they let in some water when I was standing in about 6 inches of water. Otherwise, my feet stayed warm and comfy in zero degree temps on a multiday snowmobile mission. Big but no issues walking. Easy to put on and take off. Love the buckles
Baffin Evolution Boots
I have a problem with my feet always being cold, and a co worker told me about this company.
I bought the Baffin Evolution. and today the temp is 10 degrees and I went and snowblowed the driveway and sidewalks and my feet were hot! now I don't think I will ever see the max of -94 degrees as a test, but I love the comfort and fit. do order 1 size larger than your street shoe, I hope this will be the last boot I will ever need for warm feet! Love them!...now to test them Ice Fishing!!! I can't wait!
Would these be good for snow shoeing?...
Would these be good for snow shoeing? Walking longer distances? Kelley G.
Kelley, I think there are better choices available if you plan on covering a lot of ground with these boots.
can you name any suggestions? i was also looking for boots for walking in a deep snow (30 - 60 cm deep) and i was thinking getting baffin impact or endurance.
I am trying to help a friend find winter...
I am trying to help a friend find winter boots... We are in Chicago (the windy city)... In the winter, the wind here can become BRUTAL! He is outdoors on the back of a garbage truck for 8 - 10 hrs a day, & has been unsuccessful in finding warm boots. Will these work?
Hey Michelle, this has nothing to do with your question, but Chicago is actually refereed to the "Windy City", because of it's politics "blow a lot of wind". It also has to do with the Columbian Exposition. Besides Chicago being on a lake, the city it's self doesn't get a significant larger amount of wind than any other city.
To answer your question, yes these boots should work very well for your friend. They will be very warm as well as very durable. The upper is made of 1000D ripstop nylon. To put this in to perspective, down jackets and sleeping bags are usually around 10-40D. D stands for denier which is a measurement of fiber density. Basically, he's not going to rip the fabric, and he will be very warm.
These boots will be perfect for him Michelle. Our winters here in the Windy City are very cold and these boots are for arctic expeditions, so yes, he would do well to own a pair of these. I suggest this model also.
Best Snow Boot Going !
I spend alot of time outdoors, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and these boots are the best by far I have ever worn. When you slide your feet into the Baffin Boot, you'll never wear another boot, my feet were warm and dry all day sitting on the ice, they advertise good for -172 deg. with normal socks, I bought 1/2 size larger than my normal size and the fit was perfect, like a slipper, Very nice boot, easy to step into and very comfortable. It just doesn't get better than this.
This is 2008 model
Note this is the 2008 version. the outer over the toe, the shaft composition, and the sole (at least) have changed in the 2009 model. The 2009 model is also cheaper (~$145 on Zappo's). Also, look into the Musher from Baffin, similar design but with adjustable straps wrapping over the heel also.
Do Baffin snow boots have steel shanks? ...
Do Baffin snow boots have steel shanks? I can't get through the metal detectors at work wearing boots with steel shanks.
No, nothing of the sort.

How many inches is this boot?
I am looking for 15 to 16 inches.
I saw these boots at Sportsmans Warehouse for $149 and a couple other places cheaper than $149.
At these cheaper places they also ship overnight for free and free shipping to Alaska & Hawaii (might take a few extra days though)
I just wish Backcountry would ship free to AK & HI but maybe for a $100 min. I guess it's ok if Backcountry doesn't want the market because we know where to go for good winter gear without paying shipping and the sale price is usually the same or $5 difference which shipping will be more than $5.
Make sure you shop around. I still love the gear backcountry has.
Write your question here...I am wondering...
Write your question here...I am wondering if you know where I can get a men's size 18 winter boot. I live in a small town in the nwt canada and can't find my son boots. He has been wearing runners for 2 winters now.
Contact White's Boots. They may build him a pair. It could be expensive but worth it.
When will you have these boots available...
When will you have these boots available in US 6.5 mens or 8.0 in ladies? Or can you tell me about a comparable Boot you have in that size?
To get the fastest and most accurate answer for size you should jump on "live chat" and ask those folks. They'll look up if they have any more on order and if they do they can give you an approximate ship date.
Excellent construction, extremely warm
I bought these boots since a pair of boots with 600 gram Thinsulate Ultra insulation were not keeping my toes sufficiently warm. I tend to be outdoors for activities such as shopping, snow removal, and other similar activities. There is no comparison in my view - these boots are far warmer. They ought to be since Baffin rates them for -148 degrees F or -100 degrees C.
These boots are outstanding. They slip on and off easily. They are sized well - I wear with a light to medium sock. Even though they are medium-width the inner boot adapts to my narrow foot well. The two-buckle fastening system makes for very easy buckling, unbuckling, and adjustment. Pants legs easily fit inside the boot. The soles have a deep tread that provide very good traction. You can drive in them if you're careful despite their width. You do need to exercise some caution to avoid pressing both the brake and accelerator pedals but it is readily done if cautious.
I only have one regret - that I didn't find them sooner.
I have a pair of Baffin's that aren't this model but they are super nice. I live in Montana and I use them when the snow is 2 feet or more, or out icefishing. I read some of the questions, and from my experience I have some input. I would never work in these. They're way too bulky and heavy, and no steel toe. Plus I could see falling or tripping in them if you were carrying something heavy through the snow or on ice. I always end up working in my old Vasque Apex boots with gators for work. I don't know much about working on power lines but I wouldn't reccomend it.
I think that these used to be made in northern Canada, where it gets mighty freezing, but alas, EVERYTHING is now made in china, so that would be my guess now. Makes me shake my head everytime I think about it.
Aside from that, these boots are great and your feet will never get cold, at least mine don't but they're the older kind still made up north. Love old school gear........
where are these boots made? how tall are...
where are these boots made? how tall are they and are they good for walking in deep snow? are they warranted?
They're very good for walking in snow, can't help you with where they're made. They'll go up almost your whole calf. And if you order from Backcountry, it's an unconditional lifetime warranty.
They are manufactured in China.
