Default Arctic Shield Boot Covers

I am going to order a pair of Arctic Shield Boot Covers. I wear a size 9 boot. I plan to put them over a pair of Rocky Snowstalkers. The mediums are supposed to be for size 8-9. I'm wondering if the mediums will be large enough to go over a size 9 Snowstalker which is a fairly large boot to start with. Anyone else have experience with the Boot Covers and how the sizing runs in them?

I wear a 9 1/2 myself. I've got a pair of the Arctic Shield boot covers in the next bigger size, like 11-13 I think and these fit my Lacrosse Expedition pac boots about right. So, If I were you I'd go up to the next bigger size. Getting them too snug will help to defeat the purpose. Loose fitting is better.

By the way, I've only needed mine one time. I was on stand last year for about 4 hours when the temp was about 10 degrees. I got pretty chilly, but my feet never really bothered me. I haven't needed them this year yet.

I've been thinking of buying a pair also. Let me know how they work out for you. I won't need them untill next hunting season, so I've got a little time to look around for other options.

I have the bigger, bulky ones and they work great! I have major problems with my feet getting cold and these allow me to sit on stand all day. Only drawback is the bulkiness.

This year I bought the scaled down version of them, so they wouldn't be so bulky in stand. They are still nice, but I wish they were made out of much quieter material. They are pretty loud.

They work great! In fact, I normally wear Rocky Snowstalker Extreme for the late season but with the AS boot covers I can hunt in my LaCrosse Alpha Burly Sports! I do suggest buying the largest avaiable size though because it will be a very tight squeeze over different tread designs of some boots.

Just got a look at manufacturer recommendation-they say you should size up 1-1 1/2 boot sizes

Go with the large size fits 10-11
You'll save the trouble of returning them.

Thanks gents! I guess I will go with the size Large (10-11) for my Rocky Snowstalkers. I have a real problem with my feet getting cold, hope the AC boot covers help out!

Great product All it takes is 1 cold day on-stand or in a blind for them to be well worth the investment. Though I, too, wish they were a bit more quiet in the woods.

Good advice on going with the larger size.
