by Uplandguide1 Simply the best there is
I am an upland guide and shooting instructor. I am in the field and range 150 days a year. I have a closet filled with boots. Last year I hurt my knee needed surgery, and in September was looking for boots that were easy to get on and off and tie, because of my lost knee range of motion. Enter these boots......I can only say these boots are comfortable to wear all day, are as light as a feather, go on and off in a flash, and are warm on the coldest days, and dry when the weather is warm and damp. My closet full of boots just got reduced to one pair..and will be two pairs when these wear out, as I will buy another pair at once. My heading of "Simply the best there is" is a true as true could be. They are simply the best boots I have ever worn, hands down, bar none.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Buckshot54 Very Nice Outdoor Boot!!!!!
Used this boot while hunting in UpState New York in all sorts of weather and the boots performed as they said it would. Last year I purchased boots from LL Beam and had to return them only after the 3rd time hunting because the boots leaked, which the boots stated they were 100% waterproof. This time I went with this boot which also stated they were 100% waterproof and they were, never had a leak all season Sept - Dec. They were used in the rain, sleet & snow and never had a problem. My toes got a little cold when the temperature was around 15 F but other than that they were comfortable. Best part of the boot is that they have easy off and on lacing. The only downside that I didn't like was that the wire lacing is noisy when moving around in your deer stand or while walking in the woods trying to be quite. Love the boots!!!!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BIRDHUNTERBOB GOOD BOOT
VERY PLEASED WITH BOOT. LIGHT AND COMFORTABLE. TWO ISSUES WITH BOOT. THE LATCH IS HARD TO OPEN AFTER AN ALL DAY HUNT AND THE EXTRA PIECE ON THE TOE LOOKS TO BE SOFT. DOES NOT LOOK TO LAST MAYBE TWO SEASONS. SUGGEST A TUFFER MATERIAL FOR TOE COVERING.

Rated 1 out of 5 by unclet69 Great boot, but think mine was missing Goretex!
Love BOA, very comfortable, lightweight boot...BUT.. I wore in wet conditions twice. First time was an AZ Monsoon on an early archery elk hunt. Feet were soaked. I paused and said..well I had to hike out in a wicked thunderstorm and was walking in a couple of inches of water for about a mile. Benefit of the doubt given. Well this AM on a late elk hunt with my son, we were out in a gentle rain, not walking in water on ground, just wet grass and steady light rain...for only about 30 minutes....feet soaked again. Not damp, but socks almost soaked thru...I think goretex maybe missing on mine? But back they go. I need waterproof to be waterproof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SWNewYorker Very comfortable with a great lacing system
These boots are exactly as described and are the best boots I have ever owned. They are extremely comfortable and appear well made. The Boa's Closure provides easy on and off with even pressure on my feet and ankles. It does away with troublesome lacing that I dislike on regular boots. This is the second winter I have been using them to snow blow my driveway. They provide good traction and keep my feet warm with the winter temperature in the teens here. Before wearing them for the first time in the snow, I sprayed the outside with a water and stain protection, then polished just the leather with a brown shoe cream to protect them from the elements. At times, I need to purchase my footwear 1/2 size larger. This was the case with these boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OldSXS Saw 'em and liked 'em
On a recent quail trip one hunter in our party was wearing these upland boots with the Boa-Closure. He couldn't say enough good things about the boots with ease of putting on and taking off. When told they came from LL Bean that sealed the deal. When checking the online reviews for this Kangaroo boot I took one reviewer's advice in ordering a 1/2 size larger. I like wearing a heavier weight sock with boots and these fit like a dream. That said, there are pretty true to a street shoe sizing. The Boa-Closure concept is pretty slick and after a day in the field it's a dream to kick them off. Extremely comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jburf Boa hunting boot
I wear a 12 wide in all my other boots but 12 wide was out of stock so I ordered a 13 reg. Fit is fine ( surprise surprise). I like the lacing system now ( almost returned the boots because they hurt the top of my left foot when I walked down hill). Finally by trial and error I discovered I needed to tighten the laces less than I suspected then the pain went away. The boots seen to scuff pretty easy but all cosmetic as far as I know. I have not worn the boots for real bird hunts yet but I think they will be good.

Thank you LLBean for offering small enough sizes to fit ladies feet in this boot - they are perfect. I wear a size 7 1/2 ladies shoe. I ordered this boot in a size 5 1/2 - it was a tad short. I exchanged for a size 6 and the fit was perfect. It feels if you are walking on air. I work in them for 10-12 hours a day - my feet never hurt. The no-shoelace is an added bonus - didn't realize how much I would love this feature.

Very comfortable and very light!
