Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boots I bought these boots about four or five years ago. I used them for hunting, fishing, and hiking. I took them to Europe, the Middle East, and China. They kept my feet warm and dry in all elements. They finally died on me and will be making another purchase of these boots. September 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice quality boot and lightweight I bought these for my husband and he normally wears a 10 in Columbia shoes but when reading reviewers comments I decided to go with a 10.5 and glad I did. I would recommend going up half a size. If wearing super thick socks then maybe one size up with these boots you don't need thick socks. The boot is lightweight and comes up the leg to a good height.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lace eyelets started breaking within the first month I bought these boots from local retailer due to the colombia name, but, i couldn't be more disappointed. I work in a wet environment, so finding waterproof boots is a necessity. As far as waterproof, they are actually one of the best pair I've ever had. However, the cloth lace eyelets started breaking the first month i owned them. It is now 3 months, and, no lie, i have only 4 not broken, out of 10 on one boot, and only 3 left out of 10 on the other. I'm afraid to drill holes for the shoe strings for fear that it will compromise the waterproofness of the boot, and have resorted to wrapping the shoe strings around the boot like the Romans did with their sandals. I have finally realized these boots are a lost cause, and will switch to a different brand. I would have taken them back for a refund, but, the vendor requires a receipt, which i unfortunately did not keep. May 29, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Satisfied I have worn these boots in temperatures ranging from -5 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. They keep your feet from being cold but don't keep them hot. Comfortable. April 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome boots I picked up these boots for fishing in the Southeast in cold weather (20F and above). I am not disappointed. They function well. The only minor complaint I have is that the sole was very stiff when the boots were new, and it took approximately 20 hours of wearing them for the sole to "break in". Again, a minor complaint. I would buy these again in a heart beat if I were in the market. March 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my new boots I've had Columbia boots before I prefer them and these new boots don't make me regret my decision March 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boot Love these boots. Bought a brown pair for my son because he out grew what he had and was using my older Columbia duck style. When I tried these out snowblowing I knew I needed a pair. So much lighter, flexable , warmer and comfortable then my duck boots. I got the grey ones, like the brown better. Can even wear while driving. 1 season so far March 20, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by left boot ! My left boot is smaller than my right boot. It hurts my first and fifth toes on the left side. My left boot made a 'bad fold' on the left side that keeps hurting me. It did that right on the first day. My right boot did the same after a few gentle walks. I emailed Columbia several times in order to get them replaced or refunded. And they kept answering me that they would look at the boots and if they look fine to them, they would send them back to me exactly as they are ! I have been a returning client to Columbia for years...in retail stores and online. But I am done with them. They lost a good client for 120$ can... March 18, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does not compare to my original Bugaboot I purchased these boots to replace my original 3 (or maybe 4) year old Bugaboots. My originals were the best, longest lasting boots I have ever owned. With putting 3 plus miles per day, 7 days a week every winter and some spring and fall days, it was a no-brainer to replace them with the Plus III. First impressions were not bad, although lighter than my originals the quality seemed fair. The lighter weight may not be an attribute though. The thinner rubber on the vamp (the top of the foot part) collapses and pinches you as it bends up when you walk. On very cold days the rubber is stiff enough not to pinch. I found the Omni-heat insulation as warm as my old boots except at the toes. The one deal-breaker for me as to why I would not recommend these boots is the stiffness of the collar (the very top of the boot). Even with the fairly comfortable padding, my left calf was so bruised after my first walk that I had to park the boots for a week until I healed. Both left and right boots have an unnatural V shape at the collar with the left being the most out of shape. I tried stretching them around a plastic pipe and placing them near a heat register, hoping that this would help but it didn't. Boot season is nearly over for this year, maybe I'll try again next fall...Or maybe I'll just donate these and try something different. March 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by comfortable and warm i have had other high topped boots that were painful to wear and i was concerned these would be the same. i have found them to be supportive and very comfortable, even when wearing them all day. although the outsole can be squeaky on my hardwood floors, i bought them to wear outside in the winter so it isn't an issue. i am very happy with my purchase, they keep my feet warm without the bulk of other boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cool Boots.... These are a great pair of boots. They are very comfortable and easy to walk in. They are a little bit on the tall side, but that can be good for deeper snow. They are warm and soft on the inside. An all around great purchase for anyone who needs a good pair of boots for their outdoor trekking.... February 26, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good waterproof shoes Shoes are very warm and are waterproof. They are a little tight for wider feet February 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm, Dry and Grippy Very comfortable! They do what they say plus they have great traction. February 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Winter boots have come a long way Very good looking and one of the best features is lightweight! Easy on and off boot! very comfortable for all day use or commuting in the snow to and from school or work. February 21, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great winter boots Much improved over the previous version, which were very stiff, very heavy. I ordered my regular boot size (10.5) and they fit fine with a thick hiking sock. They are lighter than I expected, and while not as flexible as a pair of sneakers, do a good job keeping your feet dry and warm. February 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bugaboot Excellent boot. Very comfortable. Very satisfied with the purchase and great sale price. February 17, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Boot good boot keeps feet very warm nice fit durable February 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great boots The black is by far the best looking of all of them. The construction is excellent. But I had to return it because it was a half size too small. February 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Excellent product. Lightweight but sturdy construction. Designed pretty well. Kept my feet warm and dry during winter/snow storm conditions. February 10, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too stiff for a Columbia I am not new to Columbia products. With that being said, I ordered these boots online thinking that all Columbia shoes are a true fit. Not the case here. These boots fit rather on the tight side so a 9.5 is more like a 9. They are very stiff all throughout the boot especially in the ankle and shin area. The laces are too short for you to loosen them up to make them hurt less so you're stuck with a sense of uncomfort for the entire period you have them on. They are very warm and waterproof so I guess that's a plus. February 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Men's Bugaboot Plus lll Omni-Heat Excellent Boot. Warm and lite weight. One minor issue is lacing the boot to the very top can restrict full ankle movement. This is alleviated by lacing to the second hole from the top. February 5, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Cold feet I bought these boots at Gander Mountain. They were rated for 65 below zero, so I got them for my Alaskan trip in January. The temp rating is so far off as to be fraudulent. Even at 20 degrees above zero, my feet get cold on a one hour walk. Fortunately for me, this Alaskan winter has been very mild. In a typical winter, I would have been house-bound or would have lost toes to frostbite in these boots. This experience makes me doubt all of Columbia's ratings from now on. DON'T BUY THESE BOOTS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Customer Service I just talked to BJ in Oregon and he was so helpful. He was very patient and kind to me. this was a Christmas gift for my son and i ordered the wrong size. BJ makes it sound like this is going to be a very easy return process. Thank you so much and Happy 2016. Patti Wilcox January 5, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great light boot I wear a 9.5 in every other shoe I wear so I purchased the same size in this shoe. I was hesitant they would be too small, but even wearing medium weight wool socks they fit great. I really like how light the boots are. The laces seem a little short, but that's really the only slight negative. January 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product First pair of waterproof boots I have ever owned, I will be a return customer these boots keep your feet warm and dry in rain, and snow worth every dollar spent December 31, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Good for a disposable boot I own the previous version of this boot. It was reasonably comfortable and warm the first winter, so I was reasonably happy. However, before the second winter the top had begun separating from the bottom on one boot. That problem became worse, and by the end of that winter both boots were essentially separated. The bottoms are now disintegrating slowly - large cracks at the toe joint and along the sole have developed on both boots, and large chunks are missing from one of them. This seems pretty unsatisfactory to me, particularly for boots that are worn only a few times per year. This degradation seems to happen when the boots are not being worn, so I think there is something wrong with the material. I wrote to Columbia asking for some consideration and relief, and they offered me 15% off another pair. (Not a great deal in my mind, as I can probably find that discount or more every single day from Columbia retailers in the local area.) Anyway - this version might be better than the version I have, but for me I think I'll send my money to companies who build a better boot and stand behind their stuff better. December 30, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Buywr Beware I purchased these boots back in the summer knowing that the Minnesota winter might be terrible and wanted my feet warm and dry, as advertised. For a little background information- I am on my feet nearly 10 hours a day 6 days a week in every single element that nature can throw at me. I wanted boots that were up to the job and wouldn't quit. This last November I finally broke them out and gave them a field test of roughly a month and a half and put them through some vigorous situations. My feet had gotten wet in puddles as small as a 1/2" and the boots did not keep my feet dry and some snowy days. That being said they are pretty comfortable for a work boot and your feet will thank you if you have to go out on an all day adventure. Just don't go anywhere that moisture might be. It might be that I have a defective pair of boots but I would certainly return them given the chance. December 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by great for snow weather Pros Great product. Well made Feet warm Perfect for snow weather and hicking Cons Sole stiff, so not good for everyday Stiff around the leg, so not good for everyday Felt close to a ski boot. Those aren't really cons, if snow is where one will be, but cons if one wants it for everyday life without snow Great boot for what it is December 9, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too much money to pay for defected boots! All of the eyelets that the shoestrings thread through have busted out! Only wore twice!! December 8, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Wonderful and fits amazingly. November 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Just picked a pair up and couldn't be more satisfied. Was surprised upon trying them on that I needed a half size smaller than all my other Columbia shoes I've worn but oh man are they comfy! Warm, good looks, great traction, waterproof, what more could you ask for? November 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bugaboot True to size; had to change socks from getting wet from sweating so much. Boots really keep feet really, really, really warm. They make my feet sweat but still would keep them again. Would recommend these boots to anyone. November 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by They work I received these boots in the last week of October and have put them to work from 9AM to 8PM, 7 days a week without rest, without question, working as a carrier for the United States Postal Service. I got what I paid for and they provide what they advertise. I wear them with the Moisture control crew socks as well as the Thermal full cushion Cotton socks. The weather has been drizzle rain to heavy rain and temperatures ranging from 40 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit. There have been sunny days too. It's November now and getting colder. My feet stay dry and they stay warm. And even on the warmest day my feet were only ever so slightly moist from my own perspiration after 12 hours of use. They are extremely lightweight, extremely stable, and extremely comfortable and of a very high quality. It is fall and there are many leaves covering the earth. And it rains, and the leaves, they become wet and slick against the pavement, earth, mud, and grass, and I march right on and keep it moving. Walking and sprinting up and down flights of metal and stone stairs in historic parts of outdoors Georgetown has not posed any issue against the traction of this boot (common sense and knowledge of personal limitation required). They are warm, waterproof, and durable. I even like the way they look. And at the end of the day, they still smell nice even after I pull out my dogs from 12 hours of foot slogging. This is a high-top boot of solid construction and so when upon arrival these new boots were both rigid and stable. After one day I broke them in, and now they fit like a glove. I have no corns, blisters, bunyons, ingrown toenails, athlete's foot, trench foot, or any condition whatsoever. And what more could you ask for? November 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by You'll love these boots, I guarantee it. Super light weight, super warm and comfortable. I recommend getting these a half size bigger to accommodate thicker socks. Which is a given here in the Midwest. October 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome boot I just gave these to my nephew as a gift for the winter and he loves them. He wears a 10.5 in men sneakers so I decided to go up half size and I'm so glad I did. There is enough space for his toes to wiggle and for thick socks during snow weather. I would definitely recommend these. October 10, 2015
