Rated 4 out of 5 by KimmiShops So Warm!
It surprises me these boots don't have a warmth rating! My husband made me go out in search of warm and waterproof boots that I could wear when we go trekking in the winter. My feet get super cold and after a few excursions with my Sorel boots (that were rated to be "WARM") he had enough of my whining and giving up his own socks. So I did my research and decided on these babies. After only wearing them for 5 days I already know I'm super happy with these boots! Worn them through snow, water, and sledding! The insulated liner is wonderful! I've worn them both with mid-weight (as recommended) and snowboarding socks. I'm also a true size 7 and they fit great with both types of socks. The only reason I didn't give them 5-starts and I wish I had known before purchasing was that they're REALLY bulky....like almost snowboarding boots-bulky. They don't look that bulky in the photo. But I guess to fit the liner inside and be warm they need to be like that. Takes a bit to break them in because the treated leather is super stiff. But again, SUPER warm. Keeps the snow out. I know I'll have these for years!

We had our first big storm on Long Island. These boots were great. Kept my feet warm and really are waterproof. I had originally bought the shorter shaft ones and they were too big. I called to exchange but of course they were back ordered. I got these in a size smaller than my normal shoe size. They are comfortable, look good and do the job. This is the first pair I have ordered from you and it won't be the last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Maf24 Very warm
I wanted a waterproof boot along with comfort and these do the job. They are cute, but they are really clunky. I wish they were a little less thick because they look like a mans boot there so big! They still are super comfy, waterproof and warm...so unless I find something less clunky that works just as good I'll keep these for the current new England winter

being from New England I have always been a fan and follower of L.L.. Bean and find it a comfort of home now living in Wyoming. There are week long periods every month during the winter that will reach -30 with a high of -0 for days at a time and the Bar Harbor boots are warriors through the weather. I have never felt cold once wearing them, I use them for snow shoeing every time I go, there great for long hikes, and with intense amount of snow we get every other day the height of the boot is fantastic for not allowing any snow to fall into them.
I recommend them for anyone who is an outdoor enthusiast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bdubs Best Boots Ever!
In November I sent my daughter to llbean with my 20+ year old, beloved Bean boots. They needed a repair of the finger loop. Instead of leaving them for repair she came home with a gift card. I went online to order a new pair only to find out that they are back ordered until way after winter is over. Living in New England I couldn't imagine how to survive all the winter dog walks, driveway cleanings, errands etc that I would have to do without my boots. I finally settled on these Bar Harbor boots as a replacement. I LOVE THEM! I love them better than my original boots! They have a snugger fit that I love and are very easy to put on. I love the height of the boot, perfect for a dog walk on an unplowed trail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bootviewer Excellent quality!
LLBean does it again! These boots are warm, comfortable and the best quality I have ever seen. I usually wear a size ten and after reading the reviews, I ordered a nine. The fit was perfect. We have had below zero temps in central Illinois and when I ran the snowblower, my feet were toasty warm. These boots are worth every penny and will last a long time. Thanks, LL Bean!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bessinfl Not for me
I liked the idea of these boots. But they are VERY stiff and hard to put on, and they also look way clunkier than they do in the photo. They might be suitable for walking in the country, but they don't suit my purposes (which is spending several months in a cold, rainy European city in the winter and spring). I'm going to have to return them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jewelsboots comfortable, sturdy boots.
These boots are great for rain, some snow, and cold weather. They are comfortable, cozy and sturdy. They run large, but I knew that from past reviews, so I bought an 8 for her, who usually wears and 8.5 or 9 in boots. She loves them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HD1215 Great boot--functional, comfortable, and very warm
These boots are great! I wear a 7.5 and ordered a size 7. When they arrived, I was impressed with how stylish they looked and more importantly, how great they fit great (both with thin socks and a thicker wool sock). At first they were a bit stiff--however, after a few days of wearing them around in the snow, they broke in just fine. Well done, LL Bean! Love the inner fleece boot liner...keeps those toes warm even in the coldest conditions. They're also totally waterproof...for those needing a functional and stylish boot for cold/wet conditions, I highly recommend these boots!
