Not at all waterproof

The second time I had these out in rain and snow they leaked quite badly. I felt it come in on the top of my foot. I would say the cloth gusset along side the tongue lets water in. Other than that they are a well constructed boot. This design flaw makes them worthless for me here in a rainy climate so I will return them.

That's strange because I've never had this problem with them. I've done several all day hikes in rainy wet conditions and this never happened. You should return them definately, but you might have gotten a bad pair.

I had the same experience. In my case one boot leaked at the toe box from the start. Returned them, no problem. The boot is so comfortable I might order another pair. I am also thinking of the Asolo 535 which is non gortex. My gortex lined Asolo 520 eventually leaked so I am still wondering which way to go.
