    I picked up a pair of Dunlop "oil rig boots" with my work boot allowance. I'll put them to the test this fall. Not sure how they're supposed to be so warm without a removable liner but the reviews say people "work all day in 40 below weather in Northern Alberta without cold feet" so we'll see.

    The problem with temperature ratings is they're apparently not meant for sitting still.

    Excellent late deer hunting boots, and will do a great job in snow trekking too.
    Prime ankle support will give you nice walking many miles a day.

    If i use snowshoes though,i use boots similar to what Trimmer21 recommended.Lighter model,medium warmth,but super easy on feet while snowshoeing.

    I think the key to the warmth in those boots is the super-thick sole. I have Baffin IceBears which are similar but I think the Dunlops might be thicker

    Ok good to know, thanks! Been wearing them around the yard these past couple of days and they're definitely "grippy" and feel quite warm through the sole, which is were I usually get cold first (along with the toes).

    I originally wanted the Baffin Icebears but they didn't have any and couldn't get any when I went in, so I opted for the Dunlops.

    Not the norm for hunting boots but I get 180 bucks a year for boots and don't go through them that fast at work. I actually get supplied with Baffins (workhorse) and spend much of the day in -30 degree temperatures on concrete or on a forklift, and it's more a matter of managing sweat and socks than anything else, as it all seems to be with boots.

    You’ve nailed it! You need to keep moving around (upper and lower body) in order for your feet to stay warm. I wouldn’t recommend them for standing around ice-fishing unless you had a shelter to retreat to.
