There is nothing lightweight about them.

I bought the muck brushland not the arctic.... They have held up for 2 hunting seasons now which no other boot has managed to survive a whole season.... But i can see where eventually they will crack out like all the others

Norfins by far are the lighest and warmest pair of boots on the market.  Keep in mind these are metric so use the guide before making a purchase  I believe a size 11 is 44-45mm.

Never worried about weight, love my mickey's best boot i've ever owned, been trying to get a nice pair of the bunny boots since, but they want 250$ for my size. 

Have a pair of solomans that are pretty warm and very light weight, also have great tread/traction for hiking.  I use those while hunting if I have to hike in a ways.  Gonna look into those norfin's

I have a pair of Baffin Impacts and a pair of white Micky's. The baffin's are warm and very light but they are not completely water proof so fishing in slush is a no no. I find myself fishing out of my old trusty Micky's and just deal with the extra weight most of the time. I would rather be dry a foot every day of the week.
I'm not as good as I once was but I am good once as I ever was.

Norfins hands down the best solution.
