Got my Dunlop Purofort Plus Boots today,,,I wore them for an hour outside in a 30 degree windchill and a strong wind and thought that they felt chilly,,wrong,,,,I came in and took them off and my feet were sweatin,,not much,,just enough too feel alittle chilly..

I think the green ones are for farming operations:

Purofort Thermo+ safety | Dunlop Boots

and the orange ones for industrial operations :

Purofort Thermo+ safety | Dunlop Boots

Although I dont see whats the difference besides the color. Nice boots anyway.

Default 9 years of experience working in Oil Fields

Spent last 4 years working in North Dakota. Grew up in Montana and thought I was prepared for it but it's was way colder than i expected! Here is what I recommend, get some carhart insulated overalls, and get some polypropalyne long underwear. And a good sweartshirt, the most important thing is to layer, so when you get hot you can take a layer off or vice versa. Buy some smartwool socks as well. The most important thing is staying dry and this stuff I mentioned will wick moisture away from your body as you sweat. Also make sure whichever jacket you get does a good job of breaking the wind.

The moisture of your sweat and the wind in the sub freezing temps are whats going to drop your body temp and put you in danger.

I also recommend getting a super high quality industrial ice cleat like Spiky or Spiky Plus. Here is a link where you can find them online Ice Cleats for Shoes, Snow Cleats, Spiky Ice Cleats

Hope this helps.
