Trying to find where I can get the "bunny boots" that have a valve for air to fill it. I heard Bud Streeper sells them, but not sure if that is true. Anyone know where I can get some?

Some military surplus stores will have them in stock! Beware of trench foot in those suckers, they have NO breathing ability. Other than that little problem, they're nice and toasty. Heavy and cumbersome, but toasty.

Also, forget that that valve exists. It's to regulate air pressure inside the boot at high altitudes. Close it and forget about it - the last thing you'd want is moisture getting inside the boot walls.

Sportsman's Guide sells them for around $40, I'm not sure about their shipping to Canada though. The comment from shore is right on, they are not designed to be "inflated", the valve is simply there to be used when at extreme altitude such as mountain peaks or in an unpressurized aircraft.

Mil-Arm in Edmonton is a military surplus store that sells the Canadian forces version of arctic bunny boots. The rubber portion only covers the toe bumper and the heel, the rest is canvas. Heavy, but very breathable and very warm. Boiled wool liners and 1 inch thick wool insole, plus a fibreglass mesh insole for an air layer.
