Well insulated and completely waterproof these boots are great for bitter winter cold and times when things are less frozen too. Not for serious climbing but perfect for bushwhacking, shoveling the drive or a long sledding session with the kids. Being a boot with a thick insulated liner the Impacts felt very loose when I tried them on and I worked my way down through a few sizes before settling on a 12, which is about middle of the road as boots normally run for me. They have a two belt system… Full review
They have good room, light, and keep my feet very warm and dry. The price is right...as I got them at the Barn in Newton, MA, for $69.95!! These boots are what they advertise. I bought them a size larger and they have a very good fit. I do not have to wear any woolen socks to keep my feet warm. They are extremely comfortable and no need to break them in. Full review
Warm but heavy. I bought these boots out of frustration with all the other boots I have purchased in the past.

This is a very large boot in that it… Full review
A trail shoe mean for wet conditions. The design allows water to drain out through the sole and the mesh fabric of the uppers. Light, with pretty decent traction.

Baffin is well known for winter boots, with ratings down to -100°, but this year they're promoting a new summer line. The 'Trail to Rapids' series has an interesting… Full review
I've had my Impacts for about 4 years. THEY ARE very, very WARM. NOTE: Please get them 1 size larger. I use them in sub zero and near zero when just standing (events, traffic control, etc) and they are great but I wish I had bought them larger. I wear them now with just sock liners and never cold. If I feel me feet even starting to get cool, I walk around just a little and I am just fine. Liner boot comes out very easily to sleep with in winter camping, then makes a wonderful "tent slipper" when… Full review
