Ultimate safety certified to ASTM for toe protection offering European Class 2 for cut protection
Safety is top priority when working with chainsaws. Protector Prime Orange is built to protect your feet from the dangers of the job at hand. Our durable European bullhide leather combined with an added layer of cut resistant material offers not only durability, but added reaction time if you come in contact with the chainsaw blade. Class 2 is rated for chainsaw speeds up to 24/meters/second.
Protect your toes with our steel toe cap
The integrity of your feet, and especially your toes, is important. The Protector Prime Orange's built in steel toe will offer maximum space in the toe box while keeping your toes protected to the highest safety requirements.
Keep yourself safe from downed powerlines with Electrical hazard resistance
Protector Prime Orange 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. Protector Prime Orange offers that added level of protection.
Enjoy peace of mind with a Vibram sole that offers both durability and exceptional slip resistance
The Protector Prime Orange Vibram anti-slip sole is newly designed to give you greater footholds on wet leaves and difficult terrain. The unique tread design will keep your feet in place when you need it most and the sole profile will even fit crampons and foot ascenders. Built to HAIX's exacting standards, you never need to worry about sole failure out on a job.
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 Protector Prime Orange 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 Protector Prime Orange 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. Fix it tighter across the foot and looser on the leg or vice versa. Lacing extends further towards the toe, with no seaming, to allow you tighten the lacing across the foot a bit more, which is good for narrower feet or tree climbing.
Breathable comfort with HAIX® Climate System
The Protector Prime Orange 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 vent holes at the top of the boot. The Climate System essentially works likes an air conditioning system in your boot.
These boots are the answer to my Arborist, one boot to do it all needs. I have a slender foot, so have always had trouble cinching a boot down on my foot, especially ones with chainsaw protection as that makes them much stiffer. These boots completely fix that. Day two and are starting to feel broke in, really high quality boot. They look like mountaineering/ice climbing boots. Which is cool here in Colorado.
