Break-in Period: continuous :-)
Weight: heavy, but wow

Like others, I bought these boots in 1978. They're a bit heavier than more modern styles, but nothing...I repeat NOTHING....has held up like these boots. I waterproof them with Sno_seal every autumn and still use them on winter hikes. The soles held up well with no cracks or extensive wear, exterior hides are still as good as new, and the interior is supple. Never ever got a blister from these babies!
Over the years, I've walked and trashed my way through a lot of other brands...but these boots ROCK!
