The Bogs Classic Ultra High rain boot won our Editor's Choice award because it continually surprised us with its comfort and warmth, no matter whether we were standing on concrete floors for 10 hours at a time or wading through snow and foot high water in miserably cold conditions. No other boot was as reliably comfortable, and the Bogs Ultra Classic High scored average or above in all other categories. Its 7mm Neo-Tech insulation is enough for sub-zero temperatures and helps this boot fit like a flexible glove, with none of the shin-jabbing we found in thinner shafted boots.
And finally, the innovative (though slightly strange looking) holes in the top of the shaft make these boots a literal joy to put on (with no awkward pulling and stomping) and also make them easier to carry and hang. And while these holes do sacrifice some water resistance, we figured most users wouldn't be in more than a foot of water and could choose a higher shafted boot if that's a big priority.
The Classic Ultra High boots are comfortable in colder temperatures, but they have a bit too much insulation when the weather warms.
