I know, that sounds like a great exaggeration, but my husband, who usually does not get excited about such things, cannot rave about these boots enough.
Once we got the sizing worked out, (they run small), everything else was perfect.
Comfort and fit. Highly recommended!
I really wanted to keep these boots. I find 200g of insulation is not too warm, not too cold, which is excellent for light use in Wisconsin winters. The boot pulled on easily so long as I used the trick of keeping the boot on the floor. Sadly, the sizing runs very small. For reference, I wear an 11.5 shoe in many brands (Asics, Brooks running shoes, Merrell slip ons). My toes were pushing against the end of the boot in a size 12. If you can find a pair that fits, I think this could be a very good boot.
I agree that size is a little bit of a problem with these boots, they run a little small. When you finally find the size these are the best boots. I have used these in snow and on fire scenes with 6in of water and both times had warm and dry feet. Would recommend to anyone who wants a boot that slips on quickly and will keep you warm and dry for hours.

I read reviews about the sizing issues and ordered 9.5( my true size is 9) but they were too small. I exchanged it for 10 but it is still tight. I have really bony legs and it is still hard to take them off. After wearing them for 15 minutes my feet start sweating and get cold. I wanted to give chance to these boots but now way. I am returning them. Great customer service though, 5 stars there.
There are mixed reviews. How much should be considered to sizing up to get a good fit/ I wear a 9.5 Also, can I get a confident advice to ,whether these are difficult to get in and out of. Cause this would be a deal breaker. I need to take my dogs out,sometimes I delay this just because its a discouraging thought to put lace ups on. I want to avoid this by purchasing some slip on's to make it a breeze to slip in and out of them, Anyone like these boots for this reason?

Had these in the past. They can be a little difficult to pull on. Pull-up loop too small. Typical boot for me is 11 1/2 to 12 depending on use and manufacture. In the past, on boots, I ordered 11 1/2 and was tight on the toes. This pair, size 12, and with one pair socks, fits just right with a little extra effort to pull on. Have used them in most all conditions...mud, snow, ice, cowsh*t, and more. Would recommend most outdoor use. Enjoy!

Very nice, light and comfortable boot. As stated in the other reviews, be careful of the sizing. I wear a 10/10 1/2 so I ordered size 11. Way too small. I called and backcountry sent out a replacement pair (no charge) in size 12 and they fit perfect. I probably could have even gone with a size 12 1/2 but I think these will breakin just fine.
Now a word on backcountry. The reps taking the orders are extremely helpful, knowledgable, polite and extremely friendly. This has been the most pleasant online ordering experience that I have had. AAA+
I love the look, feel and heft of these boot. Based on these 3 assessments I really wanted these boots to work out. I ordered 2 sizes based on the "poor fit" reviews. I was hoping that many of the reviews talking about the difficulties with putting these boots on and taking them off were a little too critical - however the criticism was right on. A real "b***h to get on and, once on a real fight to get them off. Better be sitting down or on the floor when you try. A real struggle. I wanted these to work so much I ordered a 3rd, larger pair and once again - no luck. Also, on all 3 pair the toe box seemed really cramped. Also, criticism that the finger loop is too small is also right on. Needs to be twice the size and sturdier. I will be returning all 3 pair later this week. Too bad. They simply are cool, poor fitting boots!
Great boots for tromping around the snow. Very warm...relatively easy to get on and off. The only problem is because the top of the boot is so wide (to let your foot get in and out) it sometimes lets snow in. Great for winter trekking in the neighborhood or on the trails...not as good for tromping through massive powder like we have had in Alaska alot this year.
Super toasty - needs some breaking in.

Do these boots run true to size or should I order up?
Hey,I have ordered them true to size and they fit well,but if you plan to use thick socks with it,then go half a size up.
Order one size up. Mine fit barely and if I wear think socks, forget about it.
I wear an 8 and a half shoe returned all the way up to 10 still to small
