Keep yourself safe from downed powerlines with Electrical hazard resistance
Missoula 2.1 is independently certified to provide electrical hazard protection to 18kv because even in wildland firefighting , downed power lines can be hard to detect through smoke and vegetation. Missoula 2.1 offers that added level of protection.
Rugged durability to prevent boot failure out on the line
Being a Wildland Firefighter requires mental and physical toughness to face some of the most challenging conditions, you need a boot that can match the challenges you face, that is as tough as you are. From top to bottom, Missoula 2.1 has the rugged durability for the job at hand. With a European bullhide upper featuring double ad triple stitched seams, this boot is built to last.
Comfort fit with HAIX® cushioned insole
HAIX insoles keep your feet and your boots fresher and more comfortable on the job. Our insoles absorb perspiration to keep your feet dry even under the most rigorous conditions. Added cushioning provides extra comfort. The micro fiber design is lightweight, breathable and machine washable. Replace occasionally to keep your boots fresh and comfortable.
Torsion proof for more stability
The Missoula 2.1 offers a sturdy and stable midsole which prevents your feet from flexing side to side, giving you more stability with less of a chance of ankle injuries. You also won’t feel every sharp rock or stone through the sole of the boot, which translates to more comfort on those particularly long hikes.
Optimal support thanks to 2 zone lacing
The Missoula 2.1 adapts perfectly to your foot. Independently adjust the upper and lower part of your boot just the way you like it for a comfort fit tailored just to you. Like it tight across the foot, but looser on the leg? You can do that. Like it tighter across the ankle for more ankle support? You can do that too. Roller ball lacing elements puts less wear and tear on your Nomex laces.
Breathable comfort with our Climate System
Missoula 2.1 allows your feet to breathe by absorbing the moisture from your feet into special foams between the inner lining and the leather. With every step you take, moist air is released and fresh air comes in through the mesh lining at the top of the boot. The Climate System essentially works likes an air conditioning system in your boot.
