Rated 5 out of 5áby FredN Very comfortable and good fit
I have not field tested these boots as yet, but judging from their feel and fit, I expect them to perform well on my big game trip this fall. I am pleased with the boa lacing system. It is very easy to loosen and tighten the boots, and they are easy to put on and take off. The service and shipping from LL Bean was outstanding as usual, and if any problems should arise with these boots, I am positive they will stand behind them.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MODC Excellent Hunting Boots
These are durable, comfortable boots and the Gore-Tex membrane lived up to its reputation. No moisture got in from the outdoors and the sweat built up from hiking in evaporated without having to open the lacing or otherwise let cold air in. Mine seem to run about Ż size big, but that was helpful as I needed to wear multiple layers of socks and stick a hand-warmer in the toe area of each after getting a touch of frostbite from a 28-degree day, standing on snow.
The BOA lacing system is great. It makes the boots very fast to get on and off and is easy to operate without taking off your gloves. I?m suspicious about the longevity of the BOA system and am slightly worried about it breaking and then not having holes for traditional laces, but the LLBean guarantee overcomes that concern. The tread is chunky and provides a ton of traction. It also seems to shed mud. I hiked through soaked trails and unpaved roads and didn?t track any chunks of mud back into the house. Phenomenal product overall. Glad I have them.

Rated 5 out of 5áby EMarcos Great boots
Awesome vortex boots. Felt lined, light weight and keeps my feet warm in sub freezing temperatures. The easy lacing system, like ski boots, is awesome. Good grip. Very nice that it is available in wide widths. I'm a 10 EE and I ordered a 10.5 EE to accommodate extra thick socks.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Fit2Run Quick Boots
Purchased boots for the frequent, short trips outside, to the mailbox, to shovel snow, to get groceries etc. Wanted something that was quick and easy to get on and off, had good traction on ice and snow, and warm. These boots are well padded inside, worm for my short trips, have deep tread that grip well on the ice and snow, and are definitely easy and fast to get on and off. The BOA lacing systems works fine for my use. I think these boots will serve me very well in the long run. The boots are stiff and pinch or bind where they flex, or should flex, at the ankle. For long trips, as in hunting, the boots will either "break in" and flex, or easily rub my hide raw in a quarter mile. So far I will not wear these boots for hunting. The BOA lacing system does not allow for lacing the boot tight over the foot to keep your foot tight and prevent slipping on the hill sides, and loose up the leg for comfort. But again, for my short trips, the boots are just fine.

To be perfectly honest I haven't worn the boots, other than to try them on.they feel very comfortable on my feet and I like the way they fit. And now I won't have to worry about the laces breaking

Rated 5 out of 5áby doggrunner best hunting boots ever!!!
Tried a lot of different hunting boots the last 40 yrs .I would have to say these technical big game boots are the best! I am a avid rabbit hunter.Here down south in TN we have a lot of briars,these boots stand up to the test.Third season on these boots hardly any wear. All the other brands I have tried don't make two seasons.no more worries about shoe strings coming untied by briars or breaking. The boa cable system is great.When they say waterproof,they mean it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Pinecoon Warm deer stand boots...
Yes, nice and warm boots to sit in the deer blind with these boots on, love the boa lacing system, very adjustable with ease. My new boots were a little stiff to start with and I would rather have them not so tall...but with the Northern Michigan winter weather in the teens, with a heavy pair of boot socks they always kept my toes warm. I'm used to wearing soft leather boots and so far these boots are much stiffer, but with hopes they do loosen up with more walking and breaking in...as I have only wore these boots 6 times, so far. Traction is great!! But, they do seem tight slipping my feet into...feels like the lacing system does not open quite far enough and this may change after they break-in better with time?? I do like them and glad I bought them, just hope they get better!!

Second pair of this style from LLB. Lacing system is easier for arthritic fingers and waterproof boots make for no thoughts about when and where to wear. Insulation a little hot over 65 degrees but not unbearable. They get funny looks, but when I explain the reasoning, the old guys get it. The kids say who cares. Good stuff, worth the money!!
