The Bogs Classic High rain boot is a rugged model that offers great protection from rain, mud, dirt, and anything else Mother Nature can throw at it. Armed with 7mm Neo-Tech insulation, it is well-prepared for sub-zero temperatures. We also found throughout our testing that the Classic has some of the most versatile tread of any of the boots we tested. In addition, this boot is one of the most comfortable pairs of rain boots we tested. The only serious drawback is that the insulation works so well that this boot is best used in cooler weather. Warm temperatures make these boots too warm and will result in sweaty feet, which will make using these boots quite unpleasant (although the antimicrobial odor protection insole will at least keep them smelling fresh).
Although we think the Bogs Classic is a stand-out rain boot, it didn't perform as highly as the Editors' Choice winning Kamik Icebreaker, which is also much less expensive. Before deciding on the Bogs Classic, be sure to read up on the Icebreaker too to see if it will better meet your needs. On the other end of the spectrum, if you need a mild weather rain boot, check out the Le Chameau Vierzon, or Hunter Original Short.
