Living in western Oregon keeping my feet warm and dry is a must. These do that perfectly. They do run large however. I normally wear a 9 1/2 so i went with a size 9 and they are still too large.
Perfect for hunting off a boat in Prince William Sound for Sitka black tail deer. True to size with a little extra room for thick socks. In and out of water all day, wet tundra, and wading to shore from the dingy. No problems at all. I’ve found them plenty warm, but they are a neoprene, non breathable boot, so your feet will get damp. Keep moving and you’ll be fine.
Wore these out for two hours in 30 degree temps. Had a painful climb down my tree and worse hike back to camp. Had thick wool socks and toe warmers in, but there’s really no insulation whatsoever. Description should not say they are good for cold weather! These boots also feel susceptible to puncture, pretty flimsy around the ankle and toe. Needless to say, these will stay on the farm, they are not built for the backcountry. I’ve got some cheap $60 1000g thinsulate boots that absolutely put these Mucks to shame.
I wore between 6-10 times and the sole pulled away from the rest of the boot. First the right and then the left. I reached out to Muck at the time but didn't get much help. I know it's not First Lite's fault since Muck makes them. But I would not recommend them.
Got these for stand hunting after several buddies recommended Muck-style boots. Kept my feet warmer than a pair of Rocky 1000g boots I previously had. Was surprised at how comfortable they were to walk around in, ended up helping out two buddies with tracking over a couple miles in varied terrain without any issue. Felt like my toes were bumping up against the toe-box, even though the boots were properly sized (ordered size 12, usually wear a 12 or 13 depending on brand), was probably just something I got used to since they fit a bit different than lace-up boots.
