Measurement of the thermal insulation of our boots.
Based on the field and lab tests carried out to measure the perception of cold among a panel of users, we gauge the thermal insulation of our boots when stationary (static) and when moving (dynamic). It is now possible to give an accurate measurement of the temperature at which the boots will protect you. The comfort temperature ratings are indicated for the boots. We take into account the differences in the perception of cold between men and women.
Footwear waterproofing test.
Tested in the laboratory, the boots provide optimum waterproofing. The boots are initially immersed in water with pressurized air inside to check for bubbles on the surface of the boot. Then they are placed on a mechanical arm simulating walking, half immersed in water. We check that the inside of the boot stays perfectly dry. These laboratory tests are supplemented by use and ageing tests in the field.
3 levels of waterproofing.
During the waterproofing tests, we test 3 levels of waterproofing, with 2000 flexes (approx. equivalent to a 4 km walk), 4000 flexes (approx. equivalent to an 8 km walk) and 8000 flexes (approx. equivalent to a 16 km walk).
Waterproof rating of the boot.
This model of boot has been tested with up to 4000 bends, equivalent to 8 km of walking.
SNOWCONTACT soles are designed from a specific component and a crampon design adapted to ensure the best possible traction and grip. SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow. In case of use on ice, only the addition of anti-slip grips will ensure optimal safety.
This boot has been tested in the field by hikers accompanied by the product manager in climatic conditions adapted to its use. In particular, we analyze the technical elements of the boot to check the product against its specifications and any feedback that you have sent us.
