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.

First things first: these boots run a full size small. I'm normally a size 7.5, I got size 8.5 and they fit very comfortably.
I would recommend these boots due to their comfortable feel, attractive look, and (importantly) warmth. You could easily walk through large snow banks in these without feeling it. The only knock against them is they take a short while to break in the ankle portion; it chafes for the first week. After that they flex well and feel great.
I would recommend this product.

I am a avid Golfer you plays daily here in Vancouver BC and as anyone who lives here knows it get's pretty wet and muddy this time of year. Rather than ruining another pair of Golf Shoes I bought the Bugaboot II and could not be happier. Standing water, Mud, Cold temperatures these boots will handle it all with ease and the soles are great for traction on ice as well.
I would recommend this product.

I bought a pair for myself, and my wife. So far, we have been very happy with these boots. It's not even winter yet officially here in upstate New York, but we've already had lots of snow and ice. These boots are keeping our feet warm and are well made. I feel secure on the snow and ice. They look great (I bought black) and wear very well. Mine fit perfectly (Size 13) and we are glad we got the size up (10) for my wife, as a 9-1/2, would have been too snug for her.
Good work and thanks! We got these during the Black Friday Special, so the price was awesome.
I would recommend this product.

I use these boots to work and play outside in the winter. They replaced a pair of bugaboos that I have had for nearly a decade. They are very comfortable, and feel less bulky than most pack boots. I was hesitant to get the tall boots, but it turn out to be a great decision. (no snow over the top)
I would recommend this product.

I have had this type of boot for over 4 years. Have worn them in all kinds of weather. I use to work 9 to 10 hours a day and was on My feet for at least 8 to 9 hours of it, if not longer. Walked 5 to 8 miles a day in them. The sole of the boots are just now showing major wear but still water proof and warm. Yes I do highly recommend this boot to any and all that need an all weather comfortable boot
I would recommend this product.

In my quest to find a cold weather boot, the Bugaboot Plus II Omni-Heat kept appearing in the top ten winter boot review sites as one of the best on the market. It boasts complete waterproofing, a patented heat-reflecting/moisture-wicking built-in lining, and a lightweight, yet supportive outer sole and upper that fit comfortably under pants.
I needed a pair of boots that can withstand sub-zero temperatures for long stretches outdoors (12+ hours, sometimes low activity). While I thought these might be a little light for this challenge, I couldn't believe the first time I put them on, they actually got warmer the longer I wore them. Really impressive heat retention capabilities.
I wear a 10.5 shoe (US), my feet tend to fit a bit wide in some brands. I purchased the 11 so I could double up socks if ever necessary, but they are roomy & great fit with just one pair of thick socks.
I think I will be a repeat customer if these ever wear out. Well-done, Columbia; the high accolades are well-deserved.
I would recommend this product.

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!!!

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 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.
