We live on a small farm and have llamas, goats and chickens. I slipped a few times in the snow and knew I had to get some better footwear. The Caribous are super warm and have excellent traction. I never feel like I am going to fall. They are also very warm on those ten below mornings. The only down side is the sizing. I would have liked to have the half size. I sized up from a seven to an eight, but a 7.5 would have been perfect. You need to size up if you want to wear a thick wool sock with this felt liner.

“How does the female version of the caribou boot from sorel differ from the male? Is it narrower? I have a son who's in the in-between sizing, and I'm curious if this will be a good substitute...if not, I'll just go with the larger male version and just have him wear more socks..”

“I have one more question about this boot: It says it is not insulated. Is it just the rubber shell with a insulated foot bed? If this is so, then how can it be rated to -40?||I was told this does not have any wool content also.”

The boot's shell is not insulated, however it has a removable ThermoPlus felt liner that is 9mm thick which provides the insulation. There is no wool because the liner is made of synthetic fibers. (polypropylene, recycled polyester, and polyester.

“Does this Caribou boot have any wool at all? I've read elsewhere that the cuff is wool/acrylic. Thank you.”
