Large wildland fires can produce hurricane force winds of up 120 miles per hour. With the possibility of extremely dangerous conditions like this, wildland firefighters require equipment that will help to keep them safe in these hazardous situations. This includes footwear like these Thorogood Men’s Black 834-6383 Firestalker Elite Wildland Hiking Boots.
The uppers of these Firestalker Wildland boots are made with black oil-tanned fire leather. Oil-tanned leather is super soft and flexible. More importantly, the uppers of these Thorogood boots are water-, stain-, damage-, flame- and cut-resistant. Inside, you’ll find Cambrelle lining, a non-woven fabric that is super durable and abrasion-resistant. Fire fighting means heat and sweat, but this lining keeps feet cooler and can hold up to 350% of its own dry weight before feeling wet. Also, Cambrelle lining inhibits odor and minimizes stains and the growth of mildew when you wear these FR boots. Cambrelle carries the American Podiatric Medical Association seal of approval.
Adding to the flame-retardant quality of these Thorogood Wildland boots are the Kevlar thread and laces. Kevlar is a material that is cut-, chemical-, and flame-resistant. There’s no question that flame-resistance is essential when it comes to fire fighting, and Kevlar is self-extinguishing. Lightweight and flexible, Kevlar remains 5 times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis. These fire boots meet the requirements of NFPA 1977 Protective Clothing and Equipment for Wildland Fire Fighting 2011 Edition, and are NFPA 1977 and UL certified. Made with cement construction, the uppers of these Elite boots are glued to the outsole to create footwear that is lightweight and flexible. The True Technical Hiking Construction combines the performance of a hiking boot with the durability of a wildland boot.
Vibram Fire & Ice ATS outsoles are perfect for any outdoor activity that requires fire-resistance and high-grip in cold weather. Vibram Fire & Ice maintains its performance qualities from -20 degrees Celsius to +250 degrees Celsius. The Vibram ATS (All-Terrain Sole) technology provides traction on all terrains. This outsole of these Thorogood boots meets requirements for fire-resistance from NFPA and the Ross Cold Flex at -23 degrees Celsius.
Comfort is also an important feature in fire boots. The moisture-wicking footbed pulls sweat and perspiration away from the foot to keep it dry, while the Reinforced Bi-Fit Insole Platform gives additional support to these work boots. A triple-ribbed logger shank offers arch support.
When the circumstances are unpredictable and can change at a moment’s notice, you need a pair of black boots like these Thorogood Men’s Black 834-6383 Firestalker Elite Wildland Hiking Boots to help manage your safety and wellbeing.

Why Choose Working Person? Let Our Customers Explain!
I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the products and service I received from your company.
I had a short notice request to travel from New Orleans to the Northwest Territories in Canada to inspect an offshore facility out on the sea ice north of the arctic circle. You can't get clothes suitable for that area in New Orleans at any time, and certainly not in April. I called your order line on a Saturday, and your ordering department spent quite a bit of time with me making recommendations and checking to see if the gear was in stock. He made sure that the order was packed for a Monday overnight shipment and I had my clothing by Tuesday afternoon. I left New Orleans on Wednesday morning.
This was a very important project for our company and I want to thank you for your service. I also want to tell you that the great representative you had for your company. I've passed on your name to our organization for other folks that might have to make a trip up North.
Here are a couple of pictures of me in Canada out on the offshore ice. It was -22 C (-8 F) with a pretty good wind (wind chill -32 C / -26 F). The clothes I got from you all kept me warm throughout the 7 hours I spent outside doing my inspection. In fact, as you can see, I didn't even need to zip my jacket. It was a sunny day, which helped.
Finally, the gloves you see in the pictures are not the ones I ordered from you. Your gloves were fine, and I used them when I wasn't physically working, but the work I was doing required a leather glove for hand protection. I procured a pair of thinsulate leather work gloves in Inuvik that worked great and were a good balance between insulation, protection, and manual dexterity. I don't have them at work with me, but if you are interested I can look at the tag and send the brand information on to you.
