Bought these all black boots in a size 8 for my 12 year old son to play in the snow. They did a great job of keeping his feet warm and dry. His only complaint was they are heavy. Overall he really likes them -- especially since they aren't a "weird" color.

Ordered these for my grandson whom we have found out is out of big kids and into men's sizes. They came perfectly in time for our 8" snow, and because they were perfect for the snow, and kept his feet cozy warm so he took advantage and was able to play outside with his friends for a long time. Very very satisfied with my purchase.

The Itasca Mountaineer Winter Pac Boots are NOT waterproof. The sole and bottom few inches are waterproof as they are encased in rubber. However, the rest of the boot is not waterproof at all. If the rubber extended higher up, then I might have kept the boots. However, as designed, wearing these in rain or wet slush for long enough will mean wet feet, because rain paints will not extend low enough to cover the non-waterproof areas. Certainly, any sort of actual immersion in water deeper than the rubber will result in wet feet. I tested both boots in the kitchen sink before wearing them and they both leaked immediately as soon as the water was deeper than the rubber. Otherwise, they seemed like decent boots just to kick around in cold weather. Unfortunately, I need something that will also keep my feet dry.
I would not recommend these boots for any sort of mountaineering. Here is a link for some great mountaineering boots.|http://www.sierratradingpost.com/s/mountaineering/

These boots will fit in both snowshoes and crampons, but I do not suggest them for mountaineering. They are very light and comfortable, but I do not believe they have the ankle support necessary for mountaineering. I would suggest spending a little extra money and getting something with more support.

The liner is removable, but there is not a temperature rating for these shoes. There are various factors that can change that rating.

I believe the boot is rated for -40 degrees and even though it does not get that cold here in Michigan my feet were warm all day at 20 degrees. The liner is removeable and I believe you can purchase liners seperate to replace if needed.

Not sure the rating but liner is thin. Liner is removable.
