My current boots suck so I need suggestions for boots that are warm and sturdy for carrying my gear and myself.

Actually, my winter boots are just a pair of full leather hiking boots by Saloman. They aren't insulated, but they are too warm for me to wear them during the summer. A warm pair of socks is usually all I need with them in the winter.

Whatever you get, too tight is cold.

I had nepal extremes they are supposed to be warm but they were too snug so I froze now I wear thinner boots (mantra?) but I can get Possum fur (hollow like a polar bear and a pest) socks inside and wiggle my toes a bit. I am much warmer.

I like leather as it is so easy to re waterproof and durable.

Not that cold here though only -10 at winter.

I've been looking at Sorels. I tried on a pair of furry boots and loved the fit, especially for my arches (over-pronator).

Me and my wife picked up Sorels from walmart of all places when we lived in WY. Great boots and cheap.
I love the removable liners. I got black and she got white. I wish they would have had some pink ones for her. Pink boots with the fuzzy tops are way sexy!Wink
