I bought a pair of Breech around November of 2011. They meet two of your three criteria: they are durable and very waterproof. They are a full grain leather upper, and as such are on the heavy and stiff side. They are not light compared to anything but a Danner Acadia, but they are comfortable once broken in. They have a pretty clunky sole, but that contributes to them being comfortable. I find that they are excellent in the cold and acceptable in the heat. I only wear them about 25% of the time, though as the weight is a detracting factor for me.
