I would suggest looking at boots that have Thinsulate insulation and also have a goretex membraine for the water proofing that you need. There are multiple brands and different styles I would suggest going and trying some on be sure to wear the socks you plan on wearing when you will be hunting and make sure they are comfortable to you. No matter how warm or waterproof they wont matter if you cant stand them cause they are uncomfortable to you.

If you buy from GuideGear, they are ok, but make sure to keep reciepts! They do not take returns,(even on LIFETIME WARRENTY products ) without a reciept. Yeah, I know, it makes no sense, if it is lifetime, who cares when you bought it? And if it fails and you are the ONLY scource, who cares which store sold it, you still made it! :?

Don't buy online if you have outlets near you so you can try them on.

My mistake was not ordering big enough so there is room for air. I thought I did but that is the dilemma ordering online. You take a chance. It took time to figure out I needed more room or I would have returned them right away.

I like rubber boots with Thinsulate and a zipper on the side. I can zip them down while walking in so my feet have a chance to breathe & not sweat too much.
