I use these boots for winter-twice daily chores, feeding livestock and general ranch maintanence. I loved my last pair of Bugaboo boots and wore them so much I wore them out. They are light weight, waterproof, and very warm (especially when it gets to -20/-30 & I'm outside for several hours feeding horses & cattle) They are a good quality purchase, especially when money is hard to come by.
Best Uses: After Skiing/Snowboarding, Cold Weather, Doing outside chores, Snow, Snowshoeing, Wet Conditions
Cons: Aggressive tread needed, Traction is not that good

I have just the jacket and not the liner. Bought as a shell. It's heavier than the patagonia shell I used (which was always just a tad light). This is a tough and good foul weather jacket. Nice tech features. Taped zippers, velcro flaps over a good zipper that is easy to work in tough conditions. Columbia's Titanuim Omni tech stuff is tough and technical. This is a great value for the price. A little heavy for BC touring. Good inbounds jacket.

This is one awesome coat. The length is right on. However, the 2 I bought do not fit Girth wise. The coats are too tight for my dogs - both are 20" girths and 16" length. Too bad for me, these are high quality coats
