I very seldom write reviews but these boots warrant some positive note. I normally have to walk for a week or more to break in a new set of footwear. Not so with these Tech Kangaroo Upland Boots. When I received them I was impressed with the leather and also their light weight design. It was when I tried them on and tightened up the Boa-Closure that I knew these were as advertised and more. Nice snug fit but not too tight, no break in period and also no wet sweaty feet after a long walk. Thank you L.L.Bean for a great product.

Very comfortable. The only drawback is they are a little harder to put on than the old model. The other boots I could slip on without touching them. These I have to pull the loop. They quickly conform to your feet. I have worn them everyday for the past 2 weeks and have no blisters from breaking them in. Love em. Tell all my friends to get them. I also have the pac boots with the same boa. Love em all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlanInNY You need these !
The very first thing I noticed taking the boots out of the box was their weight as just a few pounds. When I first put them on I was impressed by how adjustable the boa system was. It work flawlessly tightening and loosening. It's made of hard plastic so I hope it holds up well. You can put them on in seconds and take them off just as fast.These boots fit like a glove ! After the first day of wearing them no complaints whatsoever. They felt like they were already broke in before I put them on. It gets very cold where I live. These boots are 200 gram insulated. I wore them in below zero weather and my feet never got cold. I do say though that do not wear them inside your house , your vehicle or where there is 60+ degree heat for more than about half an hour. When A few times I did that and my feet did have a tendency to start to sweat with those socks on and they start to get cold. I also had those mid weight socks on at the time too. Typical for any boots I suppose. The sole of the boot has plenty of traction. I just hope it doesn't wear out soon. Since I got these a couple weeks ago I have been in the woods constantly. Most of the terrain was flat but there were many obstacles. Downed trees, tree stumps, rocks, holes, knee deep brush and brambles everywhere. The only thing I noticed was on the top of the toe of my boot a small chip of boot material had scratched up. Not a problem so far. I also was working in 6 inches of snow and ice. I never lost foot traction and my feet never got wet. I can honestly say my feet felt the best they ever have whenever I wore any boots. I have not tested them in water so I don't know if they are water-proof. The tag on the boot said water-resistant. I'll edit this review in reference to waterproofness when the time comes. I don't know what the life of these boots will be but so far after what I've experienced with them I wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Auggie Very comfortable boots
Boots are warm and comfortable as they being used during a very cold winter with lots of snow. They are very quick to get on and off with the Boa system. I hope the system holds up, I have some reservations about the mechanism being made of plastic. I had an earlier pair of boots with the Boa system and the mechanism broke. I will give it another chance. Plastic gets brittle when it gets colder and it is cold this winter. The Boa dialer should be made of metal.

I'm a upland game hunter and these boots and lacing system can't be beat.
I wear them constantly (2nd pair) after a hunt can easily release the bindings the retighten to support my ankles when required. First pair wore out after 4 years of heavy use......binding system though still works as good as new. Completly satisfied with the boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by spiller BOA UPLAND BOOT
Once I got the right sized boot, which took a few attempts, I feel these have to be one of the greatest boots ever invented for upland hunting. 30 trips out so far this year in all sorts of different covers and weather...simply the best. I would really love to see this boot in a early season non insulated version, maybe a few inches shorter. Then if this was made in a late season with say 600 grams insulation for the really freezing days. But regardless the best boot Ive ever wore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KMCCtoo Husband LOVES these!
Gave these for Christmas and he hasn't taken them off since. He's an older guy and the BOA closure is perfect. They are light weight and the closure makes these extremely comfortable to wear. Easy on...easy off. I bought them with hunting in mind but he's wearing them for his winter boots in below zero temperatures. Excellent purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigGameHunter Outstanding!
Just got back from a day long hunt in rocky, uneven and very steep terrain.....boot performance was outstanding! Light weight, comfortable, and the BOA lacing system was fantastic. I would not hesitate to recommend these to any hunter.....sub-freezing temps would likely require some good wool socks w/ liners.
