Rated 5 out of 5 by TillyWilly Comfortable mud boot with great fit
I got this boot for doing chores in the often muddy & snowy areas where I must work. This boot came quickly and just in time for me to test them out in the mud & snow.
The fit is nice - maybe a bit snug towards to toes, but not too bad. The heel is a bit wide, but that is needed so you can easily pull them on and get them off. Once zipped up I hardly notice the wider heel. I ordered my true size because I didn't want the boot to be too big in the heel and have it moving up and down as others describe. I have no problems with it being hard to zip up or get on as others have.You do have to use the tab on the back to pull the boot on, but that is what it is there for. It is something I would expect in a boot that zips up. The boot provides nice ankle support as well which was an added bonus.
All in all I would say these will work well for me for rain, mud and snow. I did test them out in some snow drifts as well and my feet stayed nice, dry and warm. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 Nice Warm Winter Boots
I read the reviews first and wasn't sure if these would be right for me. I ordered them a half size bigger and wish I had not, but now I can wear lots of socks in them. They have a zipper on the sides I was not aware of, but that's ok. They are very comfortable albeit loose because I ordered them too big, but I like them alot and they are very warm. I have not gotten them very wet yet, but so far they have kept my feet warm and dry. They aren't as high as I expected but they are great. I recommend them and I think they fit true to size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FishForBeans Too wide in the heel
I am looking for a slip on boot that I can wear outside in the weather. While I am sure these would be warm, they are stiff and way to wide in the heel. I sent them back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Handiandi Not for me
This boots are made very well-- however they pull down my socks - which I hate, and are hard to get your foot into. Feel good once they are on-- just too much for me. I am returning for the lace up ones.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jmb02129 Only problem-NOT TRUELY WATERPROOF
I am a total bean lover. I drive a LLBean Subaru, 90% of my wardrobe comes from bean, my dogs are outfitted with bean beds, bowls ,collars,leashes, toys. My home is full of bean products-I love all things bean, but I am very disappointed with this product. The boots are comfortable, very attractive but are not waterproof. I stood in my tub with water up to the zipper / gortex sections and my feet got wet. VERY SAD. I have been searching for an comfortable, attractive, all season, slip on, waterproof boot. These ain't them! Even worse-Bean has retired the Lounger bean boot! Dear Bean, please really make the storm chaser waterproof or bring back the Lounger! Thank you.

Haven't worn them but a couple times, but fit is good. No trouble slipping them on. No chaffing of shin, but my sock did extend past top edge of boot, but still no undue rubbing.

This boot fits on the foot just fine, but the problem is getting it on your foot if you have a high instep. I ordered a half size larger and still spent 5 minutes trying to get my foot all the way into the shoe. They've made it more "stylish" I guess. I also don't have a skinny ankle and could barely get the thing zipped up. This is with a very thin trouser sock as well. I'll keep it a few more days and hope that my constant thrusting and tugging may stretch it out enough that I can get into it. It looks nice once on, and my foot feels comfortable when walking. If you have thick ankles and a high instep, you may want to look elsewhere for a different boot.

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.
