This boot is very lightweight and extremely comfortable with no break-in required. For light hiking/backpacking this is an inexpensive option, the boot kept my feet warm with below freezing temps. They are advertised as waterproof, I hiked in a downpour with a lot of water along the trail. Avoiding the water was an impossibility and my feet got wet. Under more normal conditions they might be water-proof. From various sites that had reviews of these boots from the public they ranged from 4.2 to 5 stars.
