Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied I plan to go to Alaska during the spring break. Recommended by my friends, I choose to buy the snowboot in Columbia.com. The snowboot is pretty comfortable and warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I picked a half size bigger than I needed to accommodate for thicker socks and they're perfect! Without the thicker socks they still fit perfect because of how the laces are designed to tighten. Warm and dry, awesome traction. Best winter boot I've ever owned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic boot I bought this boot for an active and wet weather conditions. Very very comfortable and light weight. Stood in water and muck for about 1hour and feet dry and warm. Was worried boot would be too warm but, feet stayed comfortable. Highly recommend and I will buy another pair real soon, for backup.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Snow boots Returned the boots due to wrong size. Only complaint is that the return costs the customer to mail back. I now have to pay for shipping again, when I reorder the correct size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Anywhere I have worn this boot in the cities and in the dessert. It performs well beyond expectations. The boot is so comfortable that I have no problems wearing them on long overnight flights or for extended periods. Best boot ever.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from COLD FEET This is a quality made boot, BUT, it does not have the proper temperature rating! I bought these for a trip to Jackson Hole and wore these boots with Smartwool socks and liners for 2 days in °15 to °20 temperatures and my feet were freezing the whole time. I had to break down and buy new boots.
Date published: 2017-01-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not great for Cold weather There are a lot of good things I like about this boot, waterproof, comfort, well made. What I was extremely disappointed in, was that the boot is by no means functional for warmth at its temperature rating. I bought the boot intending to wear in Lapland and Iceland, but I had the opportunity to test them out in -15 degree weather this winter in Montana. My feet were absolutely frozen, even wearing Smart wool liners and smart wool socks. The boot would be great in moderate temperature with wet conditions, but if you're looking for a warm boot with a below zero rating, this isn't for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As Advertized This boot seems to be made of quality materials and the glue between the boot and the sole has held up so far. They do not have extensive use, but I have worn them for hikes in Colorado (10-20 degrees, 10,000 ft elevation) and my feet were comfortable. I normally wear a 8.5-9, but sized up to 9.5 in these boots and like the little extra space in the toe box that the .5 size gives me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from love/hate I absolutely loved these boots for the first 2 months. Hands down the best fitting,warmest,lightest boot I have ever worn.But the cloth eyelets ripped in half after 2 months and I tried every fix even wrapping all around with velcro but besides looking ridicules all fixes would fail. I broke down and bought a leather punch and put holes through with metal eyelets that came off and now water gets in.If you could make the eyelets as good as the rest of the boot I would be a customer for life. If you fix this design flaw please let me know. Other than that, great boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Men's winter boot! Another great Columbia product! This boot fits perfectly. The boot is built to be very supportive of your ankle. I love the grip on the sole. The insulation is outstanding. I have been using these boots in very cold weather and deep snow. They perform very well. They keep me warm and dry. I highly recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for snow but really heavy The boots are perfect, they keep my feet warm but I hope if they were lighter than that a little bit. One more thing is that it is hard for taking on or off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from cold and wet I received these boots as a gift a few years ago and have given it time before writing a review. The only time my feet have stayed warm and dry in these boots is when conditions are perfect outside, otherwise my feet are either cold, wet, or both. I have been very disappointed with these boots and will now only wear them when it is dry and relatively warm outside. On the plus side, they are comfortable when I am able to wear them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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 4 out of 5 by from 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.
