Hey folks. I need a good pair of boots for ice fishing. Preferably csa approved cause I work construction and am outside a lot. Any tips would be appreciated. Also need good gloves. Circulation isn't what it used to be. Lol! Thanks.

Look at the Baffin Titan
Probably the best out there.

Do not look for CSA approved for ice fishing.
You do not want to be standing on the ice with a steel plate nor a steel toe boot.\
Those will attract the cold.
Defeating the purpose of the need for warmth.

X2 or a hole in them from a nail.

You can buy Baffin work boots, good to -150 that have composite toe and plate. No steel so the cold isnít attracted. Warm as toast and green patch certified.

I have Titans and they are great. Not so good if you plan on walking long dists, though.

Baffin Titans x 100 probably on this board. Baffin also makes equally warm more walker-friendly boots too, although I don't mind walking distances in mine. 3 years old now and no cracks in the rubber and the liners are mint. Use them every day all winter pretty much.

I like my Kamik hunters, and they were reasonably priced on Amazon.

Mark's Work Wearhouse has most lines of Baffins, as does TSC. Mark's is having a big sale now but not sure if the boots are part of it. Worth checking for 40% off though.

If you need a CSA boot, Cofra cannot be beat. Pricey but worth every penny. I wear outside at work and have on occasion on the ice. I prefer my huntshield boots for on the ice. Not as stiff. But again for work, Cofra. TSC carries them. And they are non metallic.
