1. I have a pair of kodiaks that have lasted me 7 years so far. The sole is still like new, the stitching and seals are in excellent condition. The only thing I've had to replace is the laces.

  2. I don't know anything about Baffin, but Sorel was sold quite a few years ago. They ignored their customer base and the quality went down the drain.

  3. I used to love Sorel and I grew up wearing their boots. One of the best things about them was being able to replace the liners which they don’t even sell them anymore. I wish that they had never sold.

  4. I've worn Steger mukluks exclusively since ... 1995? Never had cold feet. Plus they're lightweight, so it's easy to go bounding through snow banks.

  5. Baffin. I have had mine for like 8 years and they still look brand new. I only use them on occasion but they are amazing. I look forward to big storms when I get to wear them, other wise they just sit there. 340 days of the year.

  6. Baffin all the way. My pair are 15+ years old and I can sit on the ice without have my feet getting cold. I live in Minnesota so they are used frequently for various other things like shoveling, snowblowing, Ice Fishing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, etc..

  7. Fellow mn’r here, and when I saw that the guides for the dog sledding adventure that my boys go to through Boy Scouts used Baffin, I went all in. No regrets. Beat my old sorrels by a lot.

  8. I agree with Baffins! I lived in Alaska for 4 years and dealt with -40F. The first year I had Sorel and my feet were always cold. Then I switched to Baffins and absolutely loved them.

  9. There's a company called Acton that makes these for the civvy market. The surplus might be cheaper, but anyhow, this is what I wore flying and snowmobiling in Labrador during extreme cold weather:

  10. I had a pair of baffin impact I bought in 2002. Used for ice fishing, plowing snow and so on. They were great, warm as anything I've worn. Made in Canada and quality. They finally wore out the stitches holding the rubber onto the leather after 20 years. So of course I buy a new pair thinking they'd be the same. Nope they sold out the company and now are made in China. The stitches look like crap, the rubber is very soft and thin, the liner is completely different material, they just feel cheap. Haven't used them yet so they may still be warm, but quality wise I'll bet I get 2 years rather then 20 out of um. Super disappointed. $260 for 20 years is cool. But instead of the new ones I'd pay $50 for some walmart boots and just buy a new pair every year.
