These boots have been all around in the wet cascade snow. I have done Baker in the summer in them and I was the only one who had dry feet on the way out (everyone else had heave duty plastic boots). They stay dry after several days in wet snow every time.
The comfort for approach hikes is unbeatable over plastic boots. On smaller mountains where there is a long trail approach these beat the crap out of cumbersome plastic boots.
