I'm very pleased with my purchase and with Mc Guire.
I've been wearing these boots for about a month now and the lowest temp so far has been -16 F.
Size fits me perfect too, I wear a large 5'9 and about 160. I went strictly by the chest however, guess a medium would do but not when you're going to wear a sweatshirt or hoodie underneath.
I was issued prescription inserts for these, but was not issued the glasses.

This jacket keeps the wind and rain, very warm and at the same time is easy enough. I think this jacket is better than N3B, Alpha Industries is the level of jackets the spiewak company. I hunt during all seasons and they are they ideal boot for that purpose!
The inserts fit well, glasses wrap around and have both clear and shaded inserts. Also, only guy in camp who didnt have fancy electric blankets or whatever. Bought these for my older brother to replace a set he was issued in the army back in the 70's. These are really the only boots i would want to wear with my uniform. They are also great for construction and I often use them for plowing!
I did purchase them under the thought that they would be gently used, but not virtually threads and stains. This is what you want to stay warm and toasty - in even the most bitter wind driven cold. I really love it's protective quality, firm grip for smart movement, the vibram sole: strong and grippy.
I found with the liner a Med is a Med, but if you plan on not wearing much underneath it, and want a slimmer look, you might want to drop down a size.
This is an incredible price for a US made Alpha jacket.

Do a good job of keeping the blowing Kuwaiti dust/sand out of your eyes, and CSM's off your butt for not wearing eye pro.
