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.
