I dont remember their weight now.
The Limmer Boot is made by Peter Limmer of Intervale in New Hampshire. Their custom boot is legendary. When I bought them (August 1994) they had an 18 month waiting period. LuckilyI found a boot on their shelf that fit, so I bought it.
Single grain leather boot, old fashioned. Can take strap-on crampons. You cannot front point with these (said the sales person in the store). Great boot. Came without insoles, might be a problem sometimes. It took me 50 miles to break them in but now they fit like a glove. I have been on 56 peaks in the Sierra/Cascades since (including twice on Shasta) in spring and summer and fall and a few winter trips on snow/scree/rock, you name it (once on 50-deg ice too) and they have done me well.
Since it is leather, it does get damp and thus cold, but for a overnighter in the snow (with an over-gaiter) they have been fine for me. I have beaten the out if them. Sometimes (20 mile+ trips) I feel the lack of insoles bothering me, but they fit so well that an insole changed the fit, so I use them as I got them. Top marks from me.
