My Personal Opinion
It is so warm you won’t even feel the difference between wearing it inside and outside the freezing snow.
The combination of the 8mm of Neoprene along the boots, a fleece liner on the inside, and an extra 2mm of thermal foam under the footbed keeps you warm even down to -60 °Fahrenheit. It also adds great comfort and flexibility along with waterproofing, shock absorption, and heat retention properties to resist blisters and chafing.
It is tall enough to warm not just your feet but also right below your knees as it measures approximately 17.5 inches.
It gives enough flexibility on the ankle for less strain when bending or squatting which a lot of people appreciates. It also has a double reinforcement in the instep, heel, and Achilles area.
