Columbia Men’s Bugaboot™ Plus II Omni-Heat®

This waterproof, seam sealed and insulated winter boot is a true workhorse for activities in cold winter weather. Fortified with new hardware, including bombproof eyelets for easy and secure lacing, we’ve also added double rivets for durability. The reflective lining traps body heat to amplify the warming power of 200 grams of Omni-Heat® insulation. When terrain becomes truly treacherous and unpredictable, the dual compound high traction rubber keeps you safe and stable.

Since I was a little kid, I have had issues with my feet getting really cold and numb. This would make it difficult as a Bass Angler to stay out on the water all day long in the Spring and Fall when it was chilly outside.
Since getting a pair of Bugaboots, I have not had this problem anymore. They keep my feet warm, dry and comfortable all day long.
I would definitely recommend them to EVERYONE!!!
I would recommend this product.

These boots are great. Definitely waterproof standing in 5 inches of water. Very warm hiking in snow in thin socks. A little narrow in the foot but fits like a glove. I have ankle issues and the hi height really helps with ankle stabilization. Well worth it.
I would recommend this product.

I just bought a second pair of Bugaboot Plus II Omni-Heat, so I can work day after day in the snow and give each pair a full day to dry out all the way. Over the course of a day, they keep your feet warm and dry, regardless of weather, and they are so light and have such great traction, its a pleasure to work in winter conditions. I partner them up with Outdoor Research Crocodile gators which clip neatly onto the front gator ring, and wear a pair of chainsaw chaps over the top of all that, and it doesn't matter if the snow is 3' deep - toasty toes all day with a thin cotton and a thick wool sock inside!
I would recommend this product.

I've had the boots for a couple months now and have been wearing them daily.
They have done well from 32° to -37°. Socks make a big difference.
I've had an ankle reconstruction, and am always looking for good support. These boots certainly provided that.
On the down side, they are fairly stiff. Mine have started to develop an odd crease in on the sides.
Also on the slight negative, they don't breathe as well as others, anything near or above freezing, and it's like a sauna in there.
All in all, I'm happy to recommend the boots. They are significantly less bulky than my 1500 gram boots, and provided similar warmth.
I would recommend this product.

My second pair of Bugaboot in about 7 years or so. This pair is very light and comfortable. Had my first chance to wear them this week in -15 F and my feet stayed nice and warm with one pair of wool socks on. Work all day outside at a nordic skiing resort.
I would recommend this product.

My brother who lives in Bulgaria loves Columbia shoes. Unfortunately there is no Columbia store there so I had to send him the shoes from here. Our Christmas wish is that Columbia store will open in Bulgaria.

The boot is good. They are a little stiff but hoping they will continue to break in. Warm and extremely water proof. Wore boots through ponds and high mud... No leaks. Rinsed the mud off with a hose while wearing the boots.... No leaks. Will buy again. Look forward to using in snow.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this unseen and untried for my husband who is a UK size 11 with medium to broad feet. So to be safe, erred on the side of caution and went for a UK 11.5 = US 12. It's perfect and he is delighted (he is not easy to buy for). I would recommend a 1/2 size bigger if you are unable to try before you buy.
I would recommend this product.
