Every women in Canada and anyone else living in cold climates Should have a pair of these boots with them at all times when they travel even a few miles from there home. I can't tell you how important it is to prepare for the elements. I lived in northern Alberta most of my life and nearly lost my life several times for not dressing warm enough especially if you hit the ditch when driving and have to walk 15 miles to get help. Keep a pair in the trunk of your car they could save your life someday. Were them if your power goes out in your home. Great for giving to a grand parent. I will be buying a pair and at 139.95 no one has an excuss not to buy a pair they are afforable. Your life is worth the price. When buying Survival gear always buy a higher rating. You can always wear layers of socks and remove layers when needed.
