Baffin apex , too warm on a lot of days then I wear rocky blizzard pros. On real cold nites in ct or when I go north the apex the way to go. Only things that have kept feet warm since I had mild frostbite as a teen. :tipup:

I thought I wanted a pair of Arctic Mucks after all the reviews, but they would not go on my feet without going up a couple sizes.

I have a pair of Lacrosse 1200 Burly that I wear when the slush is extremely deep, they are great, just don't like wearing a tall boot all day.

I also have a pair of Lacrosse Arctic Kings that are awesome. If I was being picky, the only down side is the weight of the boot.

I also have a pair of those LLBean Snow Sneakers that are the most comfortable things I have ever worn for hiking and snowshoeing. I never thought about using them for ice fishing, but I am going to throw my Neos on them and give them a try. I like to move a lot, and those things are like walking on air.

Love my muck arctic sports. A little tip which works for any boot really...put cornstarch or foot powder in them before heading out for the day and the natural moisture build upis absorbed by it eliminating the clammy foot feeling and I feel it helps keep your feet much warmer

Thanks for the tip. My feet sweat terrible in them and I find myself taking them off once I get set up to get my feet warm back up. Other than that they're waterproof to the top when they do a good job. Mine are 8 years old

My Muck arctic sports fell apart, the whole sole came off one boot, the other is working on doing the same.

Baffin Titan's paired with Arctic Spurs (the ones with the 4 triangular points and rubber tubing to strap to the boot). Warm, cushy comfort with the boots along with solid footing on glare ice. Great combo that is warm and safe.
