Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great After a couple months of break they are great. Best boots I have owned. I purchased the insulated liner for snowshoeing and I am very happy, warm but not too warm. Took a while to work in and after a few blisters I can now say they are perfect. Totally waterproof and the removable liner allows the gortex to be properly cleaned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like nothing I have ever seen! Great things can happen to those who take risks and try new things. This certainly seems to be one of those times! Most cons I read about in reviews are regarding Waterproofness, breathability, and buckling. Here is why none of these things should not matter that much: - There is no waterproof boot I realize this runs in conflict with what manufacturers say, but in reality, from my seven seasons in forestry, and having tried many different products, at some point water gets in NO MATTER WHAT. The beauty of this boot is if several days are being spent in the bush, wet liners can be switched out for dry ones. - Breathability or water resistance? It is a delicate balance to achieve both. You want a waterproof boot but you'd also like it to breathe? Gore-Tex can only take us so close. I have Viberg boots I use for my summer work in BC. They are black and made of thick rough-out leather, quite heavy. I wear wool socks in them that are excellent at wicking. My feet stay relatively cool while trudging around cut-blocks in the Okanagan region. Often it is not the boot that will help your feet breathe, it is the sock that can make all the difference. - Buckling and sore feet while breaking in the boot. I am quite sorry but there is no gain in no pain, and if you really want to garner my sympathies regarding breaking in a boot, try breaking in a pair of Vibergs, I am an adult who spent several weeks in tears breaking those guys in. Now they are the most comfortable boot I have (second to the Arcteryx Bora2 Mid GTXs). Considering the low weight, the versatility and the toughness of these boots, I cannot recommend them enough. The only qualm I have in recommending them is that I want to be the only one at work with this boot :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots hiking the Wind River Range So I headed out for a 40-mile hike through the Wind River Range and decided my trail runners were not beefy enough and my old hiking boots were just to heavy. So an upgrade was in order and I pulled the trigger on some Bora2 Mid GTXs and never looked back. Long story short is these boots are the best I’ve ever owned. I purchased an 11.5 and they fit true to size with the weight being 730grams per a single boot+liner or 186grams for a single liner only. We started off the first two days of the hike and the weather was in the mid 70’s – boots were comfortable throughout the day with only a touch of dampness after a 10 mile hike. This slight dampness was easily fixed by putting the liners in front of a campfire for 10 minutes or putting them in my sleeping bag for the night - both approaches worked well. On days three and four of the hike is where the boots really excelled. Those beautiful 70 degree days turned into 20 degree days with a full day of rain and sleet as the temps dropped. After two full days hiking in two inches of slush at ~11K feet my feet were completely dry. Not a drop of water. As for the outer boot a real bonus was the Bora2’s never got waterlogged on the outside as other boots I own do - water just sheds off them, which was a real positive. As for water in between the boot and the waterproof bootie this was not an issue - as you walk you actually push the water out of the boot through the holes in the outside shell (it actually bubbles as it squeezes out of the boot through the holes – see image). So if water gets in, as you walk you actually push the water out. Finally, the outer boot seemed to be bombproof. The entire boot is made out of a material that is sorta like a toecap on most boots. Think of it as a cool looking light weight tire for your foot. As for using the liner as a camp shoe this was also a very nice surprise. I took an extra liner and my buddy and I ended up using these the entire trip as camp shoes. They are really grippy on both granite and wet/icy granite and were perfect for crawling around in our UltaMid without tracking mud and ice throughout. The tread on the bottom was also thick enough to make them comfortable as you walk around on gravely surfaces. For those fishermen out there you could also probably swap out the liners for some neoprene liners and you would be good to go with some light weight pseudo-waders. This was a topic of discussion as a few of us were fishing and will be tried out in the near future. As for breaking the shoes in there really was no break-in. It’s a sock with a boot shell and as long as you lace the shoes up properly (not to tight) they just fit. I made the mistake of lacing them to tight on one day prior to the trip and I immediately noticed it was gong to be an issue as once you lock these shoestrings down they do not move or slip. My only minor complaint is there is a little tab on the back of the inner liner you use to pull the shoes on (see image). This tab seemed to irritate the back of my heel without a sock. My buddy who has skinnier ankles did not have this issue but it was an issue for me without some Smartwool between my heel and the shoe. So in conclusion, pickup a pair of these if you are in the market and you won’t be disappointed. They really are a step forward in functionality and flexibility for hiking boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect hiking boot for New Zealand? OK I admit it - I love new tech - whether its iPhones or outdoor gear - so when I saw the Bora 2 I couldn't resist. I had been looking for a mid weight hiking boot that would be good for year round hiking in New Zealand so it needed the following features Good support on rough trails - enough to help with a pack - but not too heavy that you just wouldn't use it Waterproof Dries quickly (as all boots come with a big hole in the top - and streams often get above ankle or gaiter level) solid enough to take a flexible crampon - not for ice climbing - but a steep snow slope or trail with ice on it So when I saw the Bora 2 I thought - hmmmmmm - and couldn't resist it Well I have had the boot for a month now - enough to feel I can review it Initially I felt all the problems that had been mentioned in other reviews - some hot spots on my heels (I have awful feet with heel bumps) some discomfort with kinks in the upper where my foot flexes, concerns about shipping gravel between the boot and the liner etc Now a month on and I really do think I have got the perfect 4 season boot for New Zealand. A 15Km walk with 42 river crossings (many knee deep) and yes of course the boots got wet - but my feet stayed warm and comfortable - and by the way that was basically snow melt we were walking in - with air temperature around 5 degrees C. No hot spots, no blisters - just snug and comfy 18km walk with 1300m of ascent - snow up to 60cm, below freezing and a slippy ice covered steep trail that necessitated crampons. Well I wouldn't do full on climbing with these boots but for ice covered trails that need crampons (I used a semi rigid Grivel G10 the crampon stayed solid on the boots and I had enough ankle support not to feel I was going to do a whoops! At the end of the 7 hour walk my feet felt dry but my socks were damp - but I have never experienced anything less after a long walk A lot of NZ walks include overnights in huts - and at least on the great walks they don't like you stomping around in a hut with your boots on - so one is expected to carry hut shoes. Well what better way to dry out your boots than to just keep your liners on which conveniently come with a nice sole that is more than enough to potter around the hut and surrounds - while drying out your boot! - perfect - no extra weight to carry around - the only downside being your feet might get a little niffy after a few days. With a bit of luck a good southerly should blow all that away

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Boot! I purchases this boot to use on a dig this summer. The liner insert was a great feature for walking on fragile floors and for final sweeping. I was around dirt, rocks and debris constantly and never had a problem with anything bothersome getting inside of the shoes. The upper part of the liner would get dusty, but it was easy to clean them at end of the dig. I wore the insert often, but there is barely any sign of wear. They are more durible than I expected. The outer shell held up well too. They got a lot of abuse on site and on the weekends they were comfortable for all of the 8-10 mile hikes I went on. I think the tread of the boot is well designed too. It provided an excellent grip, and I never had a problem with pebbles getting stuck. They were always comfortable. I meansure between a 9.5 and 10 (between d and E width) on a Brannock device. I went with the 10 and the felt great. It feels like they may have stretched out a tiny but. Most of my shoes do unless I get an E with. While they are a bit bulkier than boots I have had in the past, they were much lighter than I expected. They were easy to get on in one piece. However, they were tricky to get off in one piece. The liner likes to stay on the foot when you pull the outer shell off. If I pinched the boot above the heel (calcaneus) at the achilles tendon I could the shell and liner off in together. I cannot comment on the laces, because I used elastic cord. Overall the boots exceeded my expectations. I usually do not buy expensive shoes unless I can resole them. I was also hesitant because this was the introduction of Arc'teryx footwear, and I had no reviews to go on, but these boots were solid and should hold up for several more dig seasons. On top of that, Arc'teryx is a fantastic company who takes pride in and stands behind their products. They will treat you right! I hope this helps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boot These are by far the best pair of hiking boots I've ever owned. Great support for my joints, highly breathable and very sturdy. I was a bit sad about the stiffness when I got them, but they are a perfect fit. I usually get blisters, but not in these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boot Warranty dept told me to leave a review. Love the boots, I have two boots and one shoe from Arcteryx. Have had these boots 3 months, and as I had suspected, the first clamp/lace grip (not up on my boot terminology) has worn through a set of laces in 3 months....

Do these boots run large?

Asked by: prin abu
Thanks for the question! The Bora2 Mid GTX Boots are pretty true to size. Maybe just a tad larger - but not enough that I would suggest going up a 1/2 size bigger. I did want to offer one tip: put the liner on first and then slide your foot into the exterior shell. Hope this helps a little!

How do I contact them with questions?
Complete their Warranty or Repair Request Form. If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach their Customer Service department at 1-866-458-2473.

What is and isn't covered under the Warranty Policy?
Defects in materials or workmanship are covered for the practical lifetime of the product. Material refers to zippers, buckles and fabrics. Workmanship refers to seams, seam tape and construction. Damage due to wear and tears such as rips, tears, abrasion or UV degradation, misuse or neglect is not covered under Arc'teryx's warranty policy but may be repairable for a fee.

What is covered under the Warranty Policy on Arc'teryx footwear?
Defects in material and workmanship will be covered by Arc'teryx for the practical lifetime of the product. The practical lifetime for footwear can vary drastically depending on the frequency and type of usage. Things such as the wearing of the outsole, frayed laces, nicks and tears can indicate that a shoe has surpassed its practical lifetime. These are examples of wear and tear or damage which are not covered by Arc'teryx. If you believe there is a defect in material or workmanship present on your product, please see follow the instructions on how to send it to Arc'teryx for assessment.

What does 'practical Lifetime of the product' mean?
Although Arc'teryx builds their products to last over extended periods of time, nothing lasts indefinitely. Materials will deteriorate and fade over time and moving parts will wear out. Arc'teryx will cover your product under their warranty policy until such a time that they have deemed the product to be worn out beyond reasonable repair. If the product is showing the signs of its age-for instance, the material has become thin or faded, there are rips and tears, the zippers no longer catch, the cuffs are fraying, or the soles are worn-they will take this into consideration when assessing your product for a warranty request. All gear will suffer from differing degrees of wear-and-tear, depending upon the user. Equipment used by an outdoor guide for 150 days a year will by comparison, degrade faster than gear used by a weekend skier. By taking care of your equipment you will ensure a longer lifetime for your gear. Arc'teryx recommends that you visit their Product Care page for more information on how to wash and care for your equipment.

Will Arc'teryx repair or replace my product?
If your Arc'teryx product fails due to a manufacturing defect, where possible, Arc'teryx will repair the item at no charge to you. They have repair centers in both Europe and North America that employ the same custom machinery and techniques that they use to create the original products. If the product is not repairable, or the cost of the repairs exceeds the value of the product, Arc'teryx may, at their discretion, choose to replace the product instead.

What happens if I rip or tear my jacket or pants?
Skis, snowboards, crampons, axes and other sharp equipment will damage clothing and gloves if they come into direct contact with them. Rips, tears, burns and punctures can occur during normal use and while carrying your equipment, and are not covered under the terms of the warranty. To assist you in keeping your product in optimal working condition, Arc'teryx offers a variety of repairs for a reasonable charge. Contact them and they will be happy to discuss your options.

What if I want to have my garment altered or tailored?
Arc'teryx does not offer custom alterations or modifications to their packs or garments at this time. For products made from GORE-TEX® fabrics they suggest using a GORE-TEX® authorized repair facility for alterations. There is a list of GORE-TEX® authorized repair shops in your area on the GORE-TEX® website.

Do alterations void my warranty?
Arc'teryx understands that individuals may, on occasion, wish to tailor their Arc'teryx products to suit their needs. If something should fail which is unrelated to any alterations, Arc'teryx will stand behind their products, provided that the Arc'teryx product is being used as intended. For a list of alteration facilities in your area, please visit the GORE-TEX® website.

How long will it take if I send my product in for warranty assessment and/or repair?
The typical turn-around time is 15 to 20 business days from the time they receive your product to the time they ship it back to you. Keep in mind that winter is the busiest season for warranty and repair service. Arc'teryx will provide you with updates and more accurate estimates throughout the process.

How do I prepare my item for return to Arc'teryx?
