The waterproof Trekker Mountain by HAIX is able to withstand various weather conditions, including mud, rain and ice, and is the ideal choice for tradesmen and industrial workers. This is a robust and comfortable boot which also offers cut protection. It combines important health and safety characteristics with climate comfort and outstanding quality of wear, both throughout the day and throughout the year. The Trekker Mountain is also the perfect option for leisure activities such as mountain hiking.
High level of safety – Cut protection class 1
Forest rangers and other tradesmen work with large machines, heavy construction components and in some cases with dangerous tools. The Trekker Mountain by HAIX provides your feet with the necessary protection. It has been awarded the “KWF PROFI” seal of quality by the German Forestry Advisory Board and has passed the DLG (German Agricultural Society) Signum Test to indicate that it fulfils all the relevant safety standards. During the tests for the former, boots are worn by professional forestry workers over a period of several months during all four seasons of the year and across a wide range of different terrains. The Trekker Mountain has been certified as offering Class 1 Cut Protection. This means that serious injuries can be avoided if you are working with a chainsaw operating at a speed of up to 20 metres per second.
The outsole of the boot offers a bold tread to provide slip resistance and a firm foothold on slippery and wet ground. At the same time, the Trekker Mountain is also puncture resistant and will protect your feet against any sharp or pointed objects that may be lurking underfoot. A extra-wide padded toe cap minimises the risk from falling objects such as branches or pieces of iron.
Comfort of wear even when put to rugged use
Your feet will not sweat in the Trekker Mountain, even during the most strenuous of indoor or outdoor work activities. Four-ply GORE-TEX® material makes the boot highly breathable, allowing moisture to evaporate and be expelled. At the same time, no water can penetrate.
A dirt-repellent and slip-resistant sole provides outstanding insulation against the heat and cold. In addition to this, the HAIX Climate System makes use of the pumping movements generated as you walk along to transport sweat to openings located at the shaft and tongue. This means that no warm air is trapped inside.
The outsole of the boot features integrated impact absorption properties to cushion your steps as you go and decrease pressure on the joints and spine. The perfect fit provided by the HAIX Trekker Mountain also delivers a highly pleasant degree of comfort of wear. You will find that the balls of your feet and your toes have plenty of room. No pressure points or blisters will occur, even after many hours of wear. An integrated heel rounding guarantees freedom of movement, such as when you need to kneel down during the course of your work.
