Sorel Boots
« on: Dec 25, 2008, 06:30 PM »
I saw the Sorel Intrepid Explorer boot at BassPro a week ago. They look like nice boots rated to -100 F.  Does anybody own these?? Kinda expensive and I wanna hear feedback before I make the plunge.  I own a pair of Rocky boots but I fell through the ice a few times last year and they just don't seem to be the same... :-\

Fell through the ice a couple times?   Geesh!!   

Your a brave dude!!

I have some older Sorels and like them but there not rated to -100.  They make a good boot.

I wear a 12. gives me enough room for my toes to wiggle a bit even if i'm wearing thick socks. I tried the sorels on at bass pro so if I order on the internet I'll get the best size

 Sorels are great boots. I just bought my fourth pair since I was a kid. I bought the Caribous they our made in Vietnam but the quality seems to still be there.

Sorels are the boot of choice in the oilfields, construction camps, & logging camps of northern Alberta where temperatures regularly reach -35C to -40C & beyond.  Best foot warmers made(this from 40 years experience in the north).  While Sorel is now owned by Columbia, they still put out a decent product.

My Sorel story.  Took up ice fishing a few years ago and all I had was a pair of not very well insulated, not waterproof boots.  My fishing buddy was at his in-laws for Xmas two years ago in Highmore, SD.  On his way back he called me and said he bought me a pair of boots for ice fishing, actually he bought a pair for himself as well, said he didn't give me the option to back out because I'm a tight wad and it would be stupid to pass on this and I owed him $50.  What he got me was a pair of Sorel Chieftains.  I realize now it was a great deal and my feet have never been cold or wet since.

Lacrosse 1200mg Burly in my opinion is the only way to go! I can fish in ankle deep slush all day and keep dry and warm. Just use regular socks though, too heavy of a sock and your foot will sweat,and  you'll have cold feet
Lets fish
