Not afraid of anything.
Even the most brutal winter storms and soggy springs don't intimidate the Columbia Women's Bugaboot Plus III Titanium Omni-Heat Boot. OutDry construction keeps you dry in any weather, and it's rated to keep you feet warm in temps as low as -65F, meaning this boot could easily wander north of the Arctic Circle without skipping a beat.
OutDry construction features waterproof materials and fully sealed seams to ensure your feet stay dry in the soggiest slush and heaviest downpours. 600g synthetic insulation and Omni-Heat thermal reflective lining work together to provide expedition-worthy warmth. The TechLite midsole offers lightweight cushioning, and the durable Omni-Grip outsole is armed with winter traction lugs to help you keep your footing on icy streets and snowy trails.

I am looking for a warm/water proof/resistant winter hiking boot. I ordered this boot online and am returning it after trying it on and wearing around the house. This is my initial impression:
Feels warm. The boot is advertised as -65F which might be a stretch, but I did not field test so I cannot say for sure.
Light weight and not too bulky. Appears to have solid waterproofing construction in the right places.
Toe box is narrow. I don't typically have an issue with this as I have narrow feet. But with thick socks I could feel my pinky toe rubbing while walking around the house.
Deal breaker is the boot is too tall for me. Fully laced it constricted my calf muscle (which is normal, not Hulk size). There is no way I could hike in these because of that (I'm 5'6).
