Rated 5 out of 5 by Fredj Terrific boots
These boots are lightweight, waterproof and extremely comfortable...and the BOA closure system totally rocks! No more briers or twigs grabbing on to shoelaces and pulling them open.
I love 'em...best boots I've ever owned!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AUbatman Love my boots with boa closer system
I have a physical disability, and have a tough time tying my boots. So I thought I'd try the boa closer system. And it works great!

Gave these to my husband for a present. He loves them and they fit true to size. No burrs or seeds can get caught in your shoe strings. They look great

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chromis Great boots for hunting and winter hiking
These boots are very comfortable and the Boa closure system is superb for getting them tight very fast. I have a 12 week old labrador puppy and running after him for short sprints is easy in these boots.
The only deficiency is that the loop used to pull them on broke. Bean replaced the boots, but it's worth being careful not to really pull hard on the loop when putting the boots on. Otherwise, these are extremely good boots and worth the cost.

These boots are awesome. I have a wide foot and walk many miles each day when hunting birds. I had my foot measured before placing order. The first pair I ordered; 10.5 Wide, were too snug. I exchanged the 1st pair for 11 Wide and they fit perfectly (an excellent return process). The Boa system is a great improvement to any lacing system out there. I have been a satisfied and loyal L.L. Bean customer since 1968. The LL Bean VISA card I carry is my only plastic $.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lsanteli Great boot, but squeaky.
This is my second pair. Still using the gray version but wanted to add another to rotate on consecutive hunting days.
The new ones are equally as comfortable and dry. Lacing system works perfectly for me. Convenient. Fast opening and closing. But squeaky, and that needs to be fixed.
Late season birds hear me 100 yards away. Awful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Duce Would not buy again
Purchased boots for 2014 upland bird season. Used that season and first three weeks of 2015 season.
Pros: most comfortable boot I have ever worn. Water resistant but not waterproof.
Cons: Beginning of 2014 season I thought they would do well until I walked in deep snow (actually a snow drift); boa system works open all the time....never fails to loosen at the top. Snow entered at the top and melted......got wet legs and feet. Purchased gaiters to deal with that issue because I loved the boot.
Wore them for the beginning of 2015 season; half dozen dog conditioning sessions plus five day pheasant hunt in North Dakota. Wore them for pheasant opening weekend in Illinois. Tow guard is beginning to seperate from boot. Plan to return them to LL Bean when I return from next North Dakota pheasant hunt after thanksgiving. Have three seasons on LL Bean Kangaroo Upland Moc-tow leather Insulated and love them. Starting to show significant wear which I consider normal for heavy usage. Will replace Boa Boot with LL Bean Kangaroo Upland Moc-tow leather Insulated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UrbaneCowboy Great boot, need 14
I enjoy all of the Bean BOA boots. The Hunter and Big Game are made in size 14 but this one, a drawback. The 13 does not provide enough length for me with a thicker sock. The original (grey) upland boot was available in a 14, not sure why they think just bird hunters have smaller feet :)
Would buy two more pairs if they came out with a 14 next year.

Bought these for my first upland hunting experience after chatting to a product specialist on the PC. I wore them on a hike but have not worn them hunting yet. They fit perfectly and are very light weight. They flex easily when walking and are comfortable. The Boa lacing system is easy to use and will hopefully last for a long time.
