Best cold weather boots

What do you use for stand hunting, thinking about getting some new boots.

Well SOREL out of Canada used to have good pack boots when they put heavy wool liners in them but now they use a cheap synthetic that will not keep your feet warm.

Use a Peet boot dryer overnight and they are good for the day.

Re: Best cold weather boots

For very cold stand hunting, I don't think anything will beat a pair of pack boots, although I say my Muck arctic boots come close.

Re: Best cold weather boots

On stand,I like Lacrosse insulated packs down to 20 degrees. Below that, I usually go to the rubber packs with slip out felt liners. If it is below zero, I go to my Lacrosse Iceman boots, which are rubber bottom, leather topped boots with thick liners and extra insulation. They are clumsy to walk in but warm. I also have a set of those goose down filled overboots, but I usually use them by themselves with 2 pairs or loose fitting (wool or poly) thick socks. When I have to use them, I carry them in to my stand and then put them on. Hint: put a heat pack in each boots that you took off and they will be toasty when you put them back on.

And the suggestion about the Peet boot dryers is right on. A wet boot liner will ruin your day, cause your feet almost always will get cold on stand.

Yep, if you want a thermos to keep contents hot all day you preheat it before adding contents, nothing like warm dry boots.

Re: Best cold weather boots

Can't wear pacs, need "regular" boots that lace-up, or I can't do much walking without major foot/ankle problems.

Bought a pair of Rocky boots w/800grs of Thinsulate some years ago on sale and they suit me fine for really cold weather. Bought them big enough to wear with extra thick wick-dry socks, but so far haven't had to wear anything but thinner socks with them. Ain't had cold feet since and they're comfy to walk in.

Anything above the mid-20s, I usually wear my old Wolverine pigskins w/200grs.
