Many people are not aware of the great diversity that is within the Baffin brand. Baffin has built its name and reputation off of the amazing design and warmth of the polar proven boots and apparel however Baffin is so much more than just a winter clothing line. Baffin prides itself on integrating new techniques and designs, using new sciences and methods to create the absolute best products. As a part of this exploration Baffin is always looking for new tasks and possibilities to yet again astonish its consumers.

In this particular article we will be analyzing a product Baffin created specifically for their outdoor water athletes. We will be taking a look at one of the products from Baffin’s “trail to rapids” line. The Baffin BVI is a shoe specifically created for outdoor adventurers. This particular shoe is made up of 6 different layers the first of which is the upper layer. This layer is made up of a ventilated mesh that provides ultimate breathability. Layer 1, is a removable water channeling system that allows the drainage of water. Layer 2 is a nylon layer that allows water and air to travel through with ease. Layer 3 is a metallic grid that was created to stop stones and grit from entering into the shoe. Layer 4 is an ultra light midsole that provides cushioning and acts as a primary defense. The sixth and final layer is the rugged sole, which was designed specifically to give the athlete added traction.

This is just on example of the lengths that Baffin goes to, to create the absolute best products for their customers. Here is a testimony from a happy Baffin customer who purchased the Baffin BVI shoe. ( )We encourage you to read the review as well as browse our website to find the perfect product for your sport.

Based on the idea that most people spend more time in their work boots than any other pair of shoe, our theory is that you work boots should be the most comfortable footwear you own!

Chief Testing Officer, Designer and Baffin Owner Paul Hubner took this challenge to heart and wanted to develop a line of work boots that moved with the foot, providing all the comfort and performance of a technical athletic shoe without sacrificing durability and personal protection.

The resulting inspiration brought upon the Baffin HexFlex® outsole design. This patented design features a series of hexagonal lugs throughout the outsole, providing flex relief at 6 points across every lug. This provides incredible flexibility right out of the box.


This outsole technology allows the foot to move the way it is supposed to; thus improving comfort and reducing fatigue. The deep grooves between each lug also open up during the workers natural walking motion, which allows for the discharge of any debris picked up from the job site. The increased flexibility also keeps more of the outsole in contact with the ground, resulting in improved traction. Each Hexagon is finished with more than 40 small cleats, amping up the slip-resistance to an impressive 0.85 C of in laboratory tests.

Paul put the same depth of thought and quest for perfection in every component of the HexFlex® series. The midsole feature’s the perfect balance between weight and durability, using the latest generation of premium Polyurethane technology. Premium leathers uppers are all waterproof (we’ve written it right on the boot) and are sealed with a breathable membrane. All hardware used in this series is corrosive and smash resistant to withstand the abuse common on most job sites.

The lining material utilizes our Hydro-Wick material that allows for circulation of air and management of moisture to maintain a comfortable environment in most conditions. Comfort is maximized by a premium insole comprised of high energy return materials throughout the foundation and energy absorption impact zones at the heel spur and metatarsal.

The HexFlex® Series is CSA® and ASTM® approved for toe, sole and electric shock protection with speciality styles also providing a certified metatarsal guard.

Turning 20 this year, Baffin was inspired by founder Paul Hubner’s father, Peter, who worked alongside local Inuit in Canada’s Arctic region to source material for creating footwear with a multi-layered structure. Inspired by this innovative structure, Baffin offers footwear that is ready to take on Canada’s toughest climes. While city streets and hiking trails are considered a stroll in the park for this brand, adventure-seekers can put the brand through its paces and be sure their footwear will hold out—in fact, the founder does just that himself. Explore Canada’s great outdoors with free access to Canada Parks this year with Baffin in tote. Take to Canada’s trails with Baffin’s Swamp Buggy hiking shoes ($94.99, or toss a pair of Packables rain boots ($94.99,, which easily fold into a pouch for convenient travel, in your bag for wetter days on the West Coast.170623_CanadaDay_baffin2

People often ponder, why Baffin? The answer is simple really. Baffin designs and manufactures top of the line, quality fashionable products. Not a product that you’ll use for one season and toss away but a product you will be able to rely on time and time again. Here is the story of just one of many happy customers.

“This is a wonderful story about a pair of Baffin boots my husband gave me for Christmas seventeen (17) … yes, that is 17 years ago.  They have served me so wonderfully well all these cold, snowy winters … but, he had to look for something that could replace those beautiful boots.  I have had warm, dry feet all these years.  I have had constant compliments on the styling of these boots.  But, I had to admit that the time had finally come when they showed signs of cracks.  Without necessarily looking for the Baffin name, my husband once again chose a Baffin boot because of the style, height of boot and removable liner … and the -40 C warmth.  While I am probably too old to ever wear out these new boots, I am sure that I will enjoy and appreciate them just as much.  I have already received a number of compliments on them and questions as to where we got them … it wasn’t really Santa .. it was Marks.”

Thank you … and keep making quality boots.

Barb received her first pair of Baffin boots 17 years ago and just this last winter decided it was time to retire them. She ended up moving onto a new Baffin boot, the Chloe! When reading the email Barb had sent we were pleased to hear that her husband for a second time, picked a Baffin boot, not for the logo but for the quality and sleek design of the boot. This goes to show that Baffin has been working hard to ensure that the quality of our products is always improving.


We believe so strongly in our products that we test them in extreme weather conditions to ensure all quality measures have been met. Paul Hubner, Baffin’s president trekked to the North Pole wearing Baffin products. When returning Hubner made suggestions for adjustments that would improve the boots design.

We strive to provide the best quality products with the most innovative technology and sleek designs for our consumers. YOU are our motivation and the driving force behind the Baffin name.

Baffin will forever be improving, with new designs and new technology being thought of daily. One thing that will never change, is the driving force behind the Baffin name. We will always be manufacturing products with YOU in mind.
