UK Military Issue
Specifically developed for issue to UK Military. The Defender Combat Boot is Cambrelle® lined – fast drying, and ultra breathable. The sole has a micro shock absorbing midlayer, to reduce impact on joints when running.
Sizing and fitting is UK Military Specification. 3mm spacers (supplied with the boots) are used underneath the footbeds to ‘fine tune’ the fitting.
Internal dimensions of the boot enable a Sealskinz® type sock to be worn in extreme situations.
The leather is Anfibio, water repellent – and the boot passes the SATRA dynamic water resistance test at 100,000 flexes, for water resistance. Most boots require a waterproof lining (i.e. Sympatex/Goretex) in order to pass this test.
Defender Combat Boots have individual NATO stock numbers, and the boot is included on the NATO approved listings, to supply to NATO forces. The numbers are individual for each boot, based on size, width, colour and gender.
