I bought these to sleep in since I get very cold feet in my sleeping bag. They were not as thick as I had expected, but they were comfortable. I wore them over a thick pair of wool socks and my feet stayed warm. Without them, I would wake up with feet of ice, so they obviously did the trick. However, if the temps were much below 25F, I would upgrade to some down booties.
I wore them around camp while making dinner, etc. and they held up well.

I just wore these on a four day canyoneering trip. With a 30 pound pack, these shoes were comfortable and stiff enough. We were in and out of the muddy water for 40 miles, and the shoes drained well and my feet are blister-free. I have wide feet, and I wore both thin and very thick neoprene socks, and the shoes comfortably accommodated both. Two problems, though:

1. The heel strap slipped. There is a little webbing strap that cranks down on your heel, and it comes loose pretty quickly, causing the shoe to flop up and down. I put a safety pin through the webbing and that held up for the trip. This shouldn't be necessary, though.

2. The lace busted! These laces are specialized and difficult to replace - this is a huge problem! After about 10 miles in muddy water, the abrasion of the silt in one of the lace eyelets wore through the lace. These are tough conditions for the laces, sure, but these shoes were sold to me as canyoneering shoes. This shouldn't have happened.
