GORE-TEX® fabric forever changed the standard for high-performance outerwear when it was introduced in 1978. Today, GORE-TEX fabric is known worldwide for extreme wet-weather protection that keeps you dry and comfortable from head to toe. Outerwear and footwear constructed using GORE-TEX fabric and technology is rigorously tested to ensure it is waterproof to keep you dry, windproof to keep you warm and breathable to keep you comfortable all day long.
What makes Thinsulate insulation so important to a cold-weather boot? Three words: thin, warm, light.
Thinness, of course, is crucial in a boot insulation. There is simply no room for anything bulky.
The same goes for warmth. Feet, being furthest from your body's center of heat, need insulation
more than any other part of your body. With nearly twice the warmth of foam, felt or pile,
Thinsulate insulation is just what feet need to stay warm and comfortable. Which brings up
the third big benefit of Thinsulate insulation: It doesn't bog boots down with weight. In fact,
it's one of the lightest synthetic insulations on the market.
We started with the toughest leather we could find - rugged, full-grain leather that would stand up to the extreme punishment of a rigorous hunt. Our full-grain leather is the longest-lasting, most durable, natural material found in boots. The rough and abrasive outdoor environment can take its toll on lesser leathers, but our full-grain leather stays as tough as the day you bought it, year after year.
