Men's Storm Chaser Boots 5, Lace Leather is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 98.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Storm Chaser 5 Boot Same thing happened to me as a previous reviewer. I bought the boots in the Albany store Sunday the 8th. I wore them in the store and they were very comfortable so I bought them. My wife wrapped them for me for Christmas. On Christmas when I pulled them on using the "pull tab" I heard them rip. The inner lining ripped along the seam. I will be returning them to get my money back. I certainly will not be exchanging these boots for another pair since they are either poorly designed or poorly manufactured.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good snow/ Rain Boot-Not Ice I bought Men's Storm Chaser Boots 5 late December for walking in light snow and wet ground. As a tree farm owner in central New Hampshire, I like LLBean's winter and storm chaser products because I am outside year-round. I have owned these boots for 2 1/2 months & I like the fit, they are very comfortable, waterproof, and moderately warm in cool weather (28 to 40 F), and do well on hard surfaces. Yet the boot is extremely bad on any icy surface. The boots do not hold or grip on any ice. For example, The books slipped badly going up a 3-degree small snow cover slope with a windblown coating of ice. Other Bean boots I own have never had a problem on the same small incline in similar conditions. I recommend these boots for snow and wet surfaces, but avoid them on ice or icy conditions. They simply do not work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not waterproof! Purchased these from the Mansfield MA store early November for my dad. The first time he wore them water got in right at the toes! The inside was wet in the toe box. Returned without an issue for a different winter shoe as the other boots were a no-go. Hoping to have better luck with the exchange. Don’t recommend these as they were not waterproof in our case!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond expectations I had owned a pair of Bean boots for 40 years, having had them re-soled once, but the top finally wore out. I was expecting a quality boot when I purchased the new ones, but I was pleased beyond my expectations. The fit is perfect; they're warm; I am most pleased with the quality of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mens Storm Chaser Boot I give these boots a TEN! Two thumbs up! They fit like a glove, are light, comfortable, springy. I am very very happy with them. Now to see if they hold up all winter, and are warm when it gets really cold!!!! Just awesome so far!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Comfortable but not waterproof Still trying to find the right bean boots but so far no luck. This boot was not waterproof. It leaks where the rubber duck part meets the leather. If you do not come in contact with water, just get caught in rain or snow these will be fine. If you need waterproof, these leak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and comfy I absolutely love these boots. This winter, I started taking a lot of weekend hikes and these boots are perfect. They give good snow and mud traction, and are middling on ice. They do not slow me down on these 5+ mile treks. I cannot say they are light, but they are not bulky. I can certainly say they are comfortable. I forget that they are on. Most importantly, they are warm. This is the reason I bought them. I have always had problems with my feet and toes getting cold, no matter the sock or boot or warmer. These boots keep my feet warm, even the temperature dropped to 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Yet, whether it is the boot or the smartwool sock, my feet do not sweat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My ‘Walking’ Partner I live in the Midwest, and during the winter months, I was looking for a good boot that was warm, comfortable and would provide the necessary traction while walking in snow during my morning walks. I ordered this boot because I thought it would accomplish this, and I have not been disappointed. In fact, I ordered another pair for our other home in MN when we travel north from Iowa. My three-to-five mile morning walks are sacred, and I now have a trusted ‘companion’ with me during the cold winter months! I have both boot colors.
