Rated 5 out of 5 by GinaWI Love these
I got these boots last year and I can't wait for cold weather this year so I can get them out and wear them. I mostly use them for dog walking and mountain biking. I bought a pair for my mom who does lots of outdoor farm chores and they work great for her as well. I got them a size larger so I can wear thick socks when I need more warmth. I rate them a 10 for comfort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ColoradoWriter Hard to get on
Although I love these boots, I've found it somewhat difficult to get them on. Maybe it's just the shape of my foot, but when I step into them I have to pull really hard to get my heel around the zippered part. The angle seems to be all wrong. Don't know if anyone else has the same problems....

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yooper62 Great general 3 season boot
Love these boots which are comfortable, easy to pull on/off and keep out the snow, mud, and water! I will wear these from late fall to early spring. As recommended by LLBean, I ordered a 1/2 size larger, and the boot fits perfect to my big toe. They may be a tad wide, but that helps to get them on/off, and I typically wear a thicker sock. I have used these for 3 months through the mud, snow, and now slush puddles. These are great for the dog park and general use to the grocery store. They are my go-to shoe/boot unless the snow is too deep or it is too cold.
I like that they have the pull tab on both the front and rear of boot opening. The boots are light enough for every day use and keep my feet warm. If I was going to be out for long periods of time standing on snow, or it was bitter cold, then I would set these aside and use snow boots instead of these Storm Chasers.
The inside zipper stitching on one boot has come loose and was getting caught in the zipper, so I snipped it. I will probably send back to LLBean to repair in the off season. They are great with returns and exchanges/repairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pibblemom Great boots!
I live in NC and finally decided that some real snow boots would come in handy even if we don't have that many days of winter precipitation. Man, am I glad I got these boots. They are plenty warm for the conditions here and they go through slush, puddles, and snow just fine. For ice, I just put on my traction chains and I'm good to go. I use them mainly for walking my dogs in my neighborhood and generally getting around in winter weather. I'll be looking for another pair of these if they ever wear out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kjaquilter Just what I needed
I like to get outside all year round in Wisconsin but in the past my feet would get so cold in the boots I had. My feet have stayed toasty with these boots. I ordered a half size larger so I could wear two pairs of sock, including a heavier weight outer sock. One of the boots is a bit tough to get off by myself while the other one is fine. While the boots are heavy duty and keep my feet warm, they are not too heavy for walking and I have gone on walks of a couple of miles without a problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kennelgirl Good, but not good enough
I've bought the Storm chaser footwear for a while now and switched from the low shoe to the zip boot for warmth and to keep my ankles dry. I love how comfortable these are, but they do not keep my feet warm and they just do not stand up. I wear them 8 hrs/day, 5 days/wk in an animal shelter and these shoes only last about 9 months before they start to leak. When walking in snow, my feet were always cold. I will not be replacing them this time.
If you are planning to wear them casually and in temperatures above -5 (not walking in snow), they may work for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PASunlover Sturdy, but not warm.
If you are looking for a boot that will keep your feet warm in the snow, this is not the boot for you. Even being outside in mid-20's shoveling snow for 15-20 minutes leaves my feet really cold. If, however, you are looking for something comfortable to keep your feet dry during rain and such storms, these are really nice and very well-made. I wish they would offer half sizes, though, because I bought the 9 while being a 9 1/2, feeling that the 10 would just be too big. These just fit me, but had I bought the next size up I could probably be wearing thicker socks to keep my feet warmer on snowy days.

First major snow with boots my feet froze, even with thick socks. Too bad I'm sending them back because they were really comfy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by lkcali Didn't work for my wider feet
Sadly I will have to return these boots. I normally wear a 6-1/2 or 7 boot, so I ordered a 7 and 7-1/2. Unfortunately, neither size were wide enough for my feet, even with thin socks. My foot is a little on the wide side, and I have a high instep. The boots were well made and would have been comfortable and warm otherwise. Wish they came in wide also. I just ordered the LLBean boot to try in a wide size and will have to wait until the end of Feb to get them...hopefully, will use them next year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skeptic0729 best ever
just got 8 inches of snow and they are warm and comfortable - was 8 degrees and could not tell I was outside doing livestock chores. they are the best ever - bought size I usually wear and they are good with either a regular sock or heavy wool sock. my feet have never been so comfortable doing livestock chores in the winter.
