These fit very nicely; they really hold onto my narrow heel while being supportive in the arch and comfortable in the toe. I wear them everyday as a gardener and would only wish they could withstand the excessive wet I put them through, but maybe only a rubber welly could do that! The glue has separated a bit where the toe meets the leather and in very heavy rain, my feet get wet and it is hard to completely dry the boots once they are soaked. I'm really very pleased with the fit and the support they offer my feet and knees as I walk a few miles each day.

I had worn these a few times, having owned them for about a month and a half when one of the zippers broke. It turns out the brand's promise of repair isn't what I thought; it takes many weeks and they may ultimately not repair for free. I have used them as shorts for a while now. I would agree with other reports that they run small, but I do like that the waist band tapers above my hips. I have to dance to get into them but there is no gap at the waistband.

I love the shape of these; I think they are flattering for what snow pants must be- baggy. The seat pockets sit flat and the leg flares slightly at the bottom to easily fit over boots. The insulation is very warm with just a pair of long johns underneath: I wear them outdoors for the length of the workday in 20degree weather. They are windproof but so far I haven't gotten them excessively wet so I'll have to wait on a waterproof rating.. The waistband is adjustable on the inside so I can wear them over long underwear or jeans or utility chinos - variation is great for me. I wear a 27 in jeans and the Medium of this style is very comfortable. The ankles have a helpful lining that can go inside my boot while the outside of the pant goes over the boot, so no snow can get in - I love that! I ordered these in Bluebell, which is a very cheery periwinkle color for the gray days of winter.

I wore these for one week to my gardening job. On day three, after walking through slushy snow for about 3-5 minutes, my socks were damp on both feet. My feet were cold the rest of the day and I requested a return- thank backcountry for having great customer service. It is so disappointing! I needed to wear these to work, so I dried the liners in the clothes dryer. On dry but very cold days, my feet were OK most of the day, with cold settling in after some hours outdoors. They are not as warm as they could be. In terms of fit, I have narrow feet and there was a lot of room inside, which was great for wearing my regular thick socks. The extra room didn't bother me in terms of comfort, but it may be better for my knees to wear a more tight fitting boot. In regards to overall size and appearance, this is a large clunky looking boot but looks normal where I work and looks normal worn with snow pants or all weather bib pants.
