The portfolio of GORE-TEX® Desert Boots provides a solution for soldiers engaged in hot and dry and in hot and humid climates. At the core of these boots are the new GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort laminates.

Not only are they durably waterproof, they are also extremely breathable and therefore specifically engineered to meet the needs of military professionals working in hot environments under enormous physical strain. The microporous GORE-TEX® membrane made of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene on the inside allows for an extremely low resistance to water vapour penetration (Ret < 10) in this product class.

The GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort product portfolio features 3 boot types aimed at different operational scenarios:

- The High Liability boots are suitable for multi-day missions over harsh terrain carrying heavy loads. Equipped with a highly breathable laminate, these GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort Boots provide enhanced foot stability and good ankle support.

- Tactical GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort Footwear stands for a lightweight, agile boot that also delivers optimum climate comfort: It is ideal for shorter missions carrying lighter loads in warm and hot climates, without sacrificing durable waterproofness.

- The Patrol GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort Boots are the ideal solution for everyone with heightened expectations regarding breathability performance and heat loss. A highly breathable 3-layer laminate (Ret < 6) is used without a separate inner lining. This is the first-of-a-kind and quite different to the membrane-based boots typically used by the armed forces today. This construction means that the boots hardly take up any water, dry more quickly and with a weight of < 600 grams per boot (size 42) are extremely lightweight.
