I have had a pair of Baffin Titan for about four years now... They are a BIG boot... The liners are damp on the outside after wearing, but bone dry on the inside... There is also a thick membrane in the sole which is damp after wearing... I walk to the swim in walking boots and setup, then change to a pair of merino wool socks and the Baffins... After a trip, take the liners out and dry them, this also allows the membrane to dry... Not cheap kit but the wicking and breathability of the liners is superb. Recommended.

I totally agree, They are best with thin socks, I suffer from bad circulation in my feet and Trappers are the only boots Iíve ever owned that keep my feet warm
I use Brasher 2 season socks with mine
I bought them on recommendation from someone on here a few years back and they really are a game changer in the cold

In my experience socks need to be loose fitting if they .are too tight and the boots are too tight that's when you get problems. As long as we are talking about sitting in a bivvy, and not walking several hundred yards to a swim pushing a heavy barrow..

Thin coolmax 1 season socks. All thick socks do is compress my feet and restrict wiggle room (I have 4season brasher socks). and can never breath as well as thin socks. Let the boots to the insulating, they are brilliant at it

Yeah that's my dilemma.

I'm a 9.5 and bought 10's (US size 11). They seem massive.

Just ordered the 9's (US Size 10) and they fit much better with normal socks on but could be a a bit snug with thicker socks.

Think I'll stick with the 9's as I hate wearing stuff too big. Psychologically scarred from my mum always buying me clothes that were several sizes too big (as a kid I should point out, now I'm an adult my missus buys my clothes)

Best winter boots I have owned.

Paid over a ton but worth it.

I use a thick outer wool sock with thinner wool or cotton inner sock- never had a problem with sweaty damp feet even when walking around with the gear- can't say that of any other similar type boots I have had.

I literally had to pour the moisture out of my Derri Boots after walking to a water in them across a couple of fields.

Try before you buy if possible as the sizing may be a bit off.

What socks do people wear with these? Thick, thin or none at all?

Any baffin fans here? Looking at the musk ox version. Can they be bought in the UK?
I found some but not my size and 240 quid!

they are far better than that in my experience. Ive had mine since 2007. They cost me near £100 are very warm and breath superbly. The liners do all the work of breathing and do it well. I wouldnt wear them for walking long distances though as too warm

Your feet will never breath in a rubber wellie. There just a very cheap wellie with a thermal liner but they will keep your feet warm. I got mine for £24 off amazon a couple of years ago when they made a cock up with there pricing.

Thinking of getting a pair, just wondered if they let your feet breathe ok, anyone got any and can give me your input
