Highly breathable, waterproof protection for all seasons

Engineered to support mission success in even the toughest environments, GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort is the world’s first durably waterproof combat boot for hot climates. Field proven, Extended Comfort combines moisture wicking, breathability, low water pickup and quick dry-out, all in one fabric.

Construction is based on W. L. Gore’s revolutionary Extended Comfort laminate, making this the world’s first functional military boot without a separate loose lining. A lightweight war fighter’s boot that consistently maintains an even, comfortable internal micro climate.

THE CONSTRUCTION

The revolutionary attached, three-layer lining is made from a highly abrasion-resistant nylon outer layer bonded to an extremely breathable GORE-TEX® membrane and a moisture wicking inner layer, with all three layers combined into a single-wall laminate.
