We were looking for boots to use in arctic Norway in January, & the NF Chilkat II boots looked to be good for the job. Based on reviewers' comments I ordered a Men's UK size 8 for my normally UK size 7 feet, & they were FAR too tight (even though supposed to be EE width)! My wife (normally a lady's UK size 5) tried these Men's size 8 and they fit her well with the socks she'd want to wear anyway. So we kept the Men's UK size 8 for her & I ordered a UK size 10 for me, which have now come & fit me well (also with socks on).
Apart from this size anomally, the boots seem great, so I've given them 5 stars: from what we've seen, I could well imagine they'll live up to spec (suitable wear down to -32°C) but we've yet to try them in arctic winter conditions. I'll revise this review if we have any problems. Incidentally, I phoned the North Face technical help line (see their web site) & the people there were totally on the ball & positively helpful.
Later, after using these boots in Arctic Norway in January: we had temps down to only -10°C, but spent a lot of time standing around at night watching the Northern Lights, and our feet were warm as toast despite the relative inactivity. Likewise sitting on a dog-sled, when getting chilled without good kit like this would have been a certainty. Other times, walking on ice & frozen snow needed care (crampons could have been handy) but these boots were less prone to slipping than the less-good footwear of others in the party.
Overall conclusion after use is that they are excellent, perform well, comfortable, and worth the cost. Just remember to buy them big enough.

Bought these to go to Lapland
Note before you go anwhere in them, use them first for a couple of days at home as they are quite stiff, and can hurt you

They keep out all of the cold.. perfect

These had great reviews on all sites so I ordered them. Sadly they were too small in length. I usually buy UK size 8 so have exchanged for a UK 9.5. Also worth ordering from a UK supplier if in the UK for ease of returns. I ordered from a non UK based reseller but had to pay for the return. I also went to the store to try on similar boots but the different models don't match in size

As many people said in their reviews these boots were ridiculously small I ordered a larger size than normal. My feet fit a Timberland standard boot US10 (UK 9.5) perfectly so bearing that in mind I ordered a UK 11. I now wish i'd ordered my normal size.
Initially, when trying on the boots I thought I had made the right decision as they were tight. However, after a few weeks use the padding has subsided and my boots are loose. The design of the boots means that the laces are pretty ineffective at tightening the boot to prevent heel lift. These boots are great, really warm and have good grip but if i was buying another pair I would get a smaller size.

Great boots. We had read that you need to get half size bigger than usual due to the padding (even if you are a regular North Face customer) and this was very true.

These boots are well made, attractive and would have been perfect for my hubby except for the fact they are very poorly sized.
After reading other reviews we ordered a size up, it was too tight. We returned it and ordered the NEXT size up, and this time the boots came from abroad and we more expensive, but they were too tight too.
We lost faith then and didn't attempt another pair (partly due to the fact we ended up paying to return the ones from abroad, annoyingly).

Should be a warning with these boots that you need to order at least 2 sizes bigger. Also cost a fortune to Return!

Love them but BEWARE they really are undersized. Originally bought a 9 but couldn't even get into them. Ended up giving them away.
I really like the style so I went for a 10.5 second time. The bigger sized fits fine and feels comfortable.
We'll see how they bare up to an actual winter but they certainly look and feel good.
