Bought for my husband. His review..."These are a great value for the price. They're very warm and waterproof and the overall construction is good quality. If you want to use them for high activity things like hiking then I'd suggest going 1 size smaller so you have a more snug fit. I got them at my regular shoe size and it's hard to lace them up super tight. That said, I've used them for everything from shoveling the driveway to sledding with my daughter and winter hiking without any real issue."

I bought these to replace my cheap coleman boots and to use while hiking/snowshoeing in the deep New England snow that we got this year. These boots are fantastic. They were nice and snug and extremely warm. The removable liner concerned me because I thought that it might pull out every time I remove my foot, but they didn't. Liner stayed firmly in place. For the price, you can't beat the quality or comfort of these boots.

I needed to buy these boots to make my bi-annual trip to NYC to photograph Fashion Week. Every February is always the polar opposite to my life in Austin Texas. In 10 seasons I have never had the right boots for NY cold and snow. This season I set out to protect the feet as part of my strategy to have a successful season. I found the boots on Amazon because of their amazing ratings after a slew of reviews (4.5 after 209 reviews - the highest I saw for boots under $100) I then thought I would shop around to see if my theory that Amazon was the cheapest option to secure these boots. To my surprise, I found them $25 cheaper and that was here on BackCountry.com. I got online on the chat tool to ask a question about shipping and I was assisted by the wonderful Kyle who get me the boots in a very short amount of time to make sure they were with me before I left for NY. Not only were the boots very comfortable, but they broke no promises in keeping my feet warm and dry. In closing I recommend the Kamik Nation Plus for waterproof boots that keep you warm in conditions as low as -40, Backcountry for amazing deals, and Kyle for outstanding service (give that guy a raise :)

Jim, This particular boot is made in China. I was thinking they would be Canadian when I ordered them, but in looking at the Kamik site, they are not made is the US or Canada. Nonetheless, they look like they will do a good job.
