Rely on this lightweight, waterproof hiking boot's solid foundation as you explore rugged terrain in variable conditions. Dual-density EVA midsole features supportive CRADLE™ technology to guide the heel into position and encourage proper alignment throughout the stride. Supportive TPU shank cushions the heel and forefoot as they bear the load of a large pack. GORE-TEX® membrane creates a waterproof, yet breathable lining to keep your feet dry as you hike along riverbeds or through dewy, tall grass. Waterproof nubuck and suede is protected from trail debris by a rubber toe cap and mudguard. Grippy Vibram® rubber sole gains traction for secure footing on wet or dry surfaces.
GORE-TEX® Active Shell: Provides extreme breathability along with durable waterproof and windproof protection for all-weather, high-aerobic activities. It combines a lighter, thinner GORE-TEX® membrane, with fine denier performance textiles to deliver a streamlined three-layer construction. New for Spring ‘12, this brings a never-before-seen level of comfort performance to waterproof apparel.
GORE-TEX® Paclite®: Combining extreme breathability and durable wind and waterproof protection with minimum weight and pack volume, GORE-TEX® Paclite® shells use a specific membrane with a protective internal layer made of an oil-hating/carbon hybrid – eliminating the need for a separate lining, making this lighter, smaller, and easier to pack away.
GORE-TEX® Performance Shell: Specifically engineered to form an impenetrable barrier against wind and water while maintaining breathability, this waterproof material uses a two-layer construction for a lighter, softer feel – and in a three-layer construction for a more heavy-duty alternative.
