Our engineers have designed this warm boot with zip opening to protect you from winter conditions when hiking on snow-covered terrain. These warm boots, waterproof over their full height, offer good protection and thermal insulation. They are easy to put on with their side zip.
Comfort temperature measured when static: -13°C. when active: -22°C.
Breathable, waterproof membrane to keep your feet dry.
4 mm lugged rubber sole for good grip on snow.
Side opening with zip makes them quick and easy to put on.

LEVEL OF PRACTICE
VERY COLD WEATHER
We chose a warm lining that has insulation to give you effective protection from the cold. We tested it in the lab and in the field with representative users. We checked to see down to what temperature they remain comfortable when you’re not moving and when you walk, as it varies a lot: -13°C when static and -22°C on the move. And we took into account the different ways women and men feel the cold.
Your boots were designed with a membrane to make them waterproof and breathable. A membrane is a very fine component (5 to 25 micrometres) affixed to the inside of a fabric that prevents water from entering while allowing moisture to escape.
We made sure that your boots are waterproof by conducting laboratory tests to simulate walking with the boots half submerged in water. We also conducted field tests to measure wear and ageing. During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (about 4 km of walking), 4000 flexes (about 8 km of walking) and 8000 flexes (about 16 km of walking). Your boots were tested at 4000 flexes, which is equivalent to 8 km of walking.
The traction of the boots depends on the number and shape of the lugs. Traction depends on the materials and ridges used on the soles, like your car's tires. Traction optimises propulsion, prevents the boot from slipping backwards when going uphill and stabilises the boot. Grip prevents the boot from slipping and skidding on smooth ground or in demanding conditions (rain, snow, ice) by giving grip to the sole.
Our engineers conduct laboratory tests to guarantee your full satisfaction in use. We validate the following elements among other things: strength of the eyelets and straps, strength of the glued assemblies, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion resistance of the sole and upper components and accelerated ageing.
To be well equipped in winter, we recommend that you follow these principles : Warmth: increase heat with warm socks (ideally with a suitable % of wool) Breathability: Choose your socks depending on the intensity of the hike and wear breathable models to limit damp. Height of the boots: adapt the height of the socks to the height of the upper and prefer high models if you need more protection.
The water-repellency of a fabric is its ability to let the water slide off its surface, without absorbing it. In this way, the fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight, breathable and warm. Water-repellency is obtained by a treatment applied on the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment. Products (sprays and liquids) are available in our stores.
This product is guaranteed for 2 years from the date shown on the sales receipt. A product covered by the warranty will be exchanged free of charge. The warranty covers product defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and tear and improper use.
The product's environmental footprint is calculated over its entire lifespan using various indicators. A score is assigned, from A to E, to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with each other. Decathlon is committed to this approach. All our actions for sustainability on: http://developpement-durable.decathlon.com/
We advise you to store your products in a ventilated room away from light and moisture.
