I work outside a lot of the time, and I made it through the last South Dakota winter without insulated boots. Never again! I am considering pac boots. I have fairly narrow feet, though, and my feet always swim in Sorels or Baffins. What is the fit like in the high-end pac boots? I would like to avoid orderingand returning - that gets expensive if you do it often enough! I spoke to a person at Hoffman on the phone, and they were helpful, but I'd like to hear your experiences. What pac boots do you use, and were they true to size?

Thanks!

Whites and yes they were true to size. I wear them a dozen or so times a year and after 6 or 7 years they are still like new.

Whites no longer makes pacs, in fact, they had to many issues and now sell our pacs. I would look at the Hoffman pro-series. This will run a bit narrower and is simply the best rubber bottom on the market.

I placed my order for pro series pacs last Friday. Of course winter is here in the Black Hills, and I should've ordered them a month ago. In any case I'm excited and hoping they work out!

I have narrow feet 12 a or b depending on brand. I went with schnees hunter pac boots. They fit my feet great.

One way to eat up space in packs is to add more/thicker insoles. Most have felt insoles, you can get anything from thin to thick felt or this image insoles to change fit. I do this to get by half sizes.

Currently still using some schnees hunter ii. My next set will be Hoffman’s. I don’t own Hoffman’s yet but was able to play with some. They are built better from my initial impression.
