GORE-TEX FABRIC TECHNOLOGY-Gore-Tex fabric technology has proved itself for over 20 years as the ultimate system for durable waterproofness and breathable comfort.  Water can't get in, perspiration passes right through.  If it doesn't say GORE-TEX, it's not!

GORE-TEX SCENT CONTROL-The same durable waterproofness and breathable comfort you expect from GORE-TEX footwear, but with the added benefit of scent control thanks to a remarkable new membrane that blocks human odor transmission.  Perfect for close range big game hunting where scent control is critical.

THINSULATE ULTRA INSULATION-A product of 3M, Thinsulate Ultra Insulation sets the standard in lightweight insulation. Thinsulate Ultra Insulation combines moisture resistance, breathability and warmth in one package. Thinsulate Ultra Insulation even retains it's insulating ability in damp conditions.

THERMOLITE INSULATION-It's the lightweight fabric that provides heavy-duty performance because it's the only performance fabric made with DuPont's engineered hollow-core fibers that trap air for greater insulation.

VIBRAM SOLES-The ultimate sole for any wear. These soles offer excellent traction and high abrasion-resistance, no matter the conditions. The aggressive solid bob lugs inspire confidence by digging in for deep traction.

DRYZ-The Dryz footbed wicks moisture away from the foot and transports it to a layer of copolymer foam. Upon contact with perspiration, the Dryz foam absorbs and stores moisture away from the foot in a gel like substance. The footbed also has a special odor killing agent called ScentBan as well as additional ingredients that fight the growth of fungi and bacteria. With the revolutionary Dryz system, feet stay dryer providing maximum comfort while eliminating odor.

IRISH SETTER UltraDry WATERPROOFING SYSTEM-Irish Setter Boots has spent 50 years perfecting waterproof systems. The new UltraDry construction combines a moisture management lining with premier seam-sealed leathers. The result is nothing short of dry, long lasting comfort and performance.

IRISH SETTER TecTuff CAMO LEATHER-Irish Setter, working together with S.B. Foot Tanning Company, has created a new level of protection and camo concealment by combining a layer of abrasion-resistant polyurethane with a full grain waterproof leather. The material is then treated with ScentBan to kill odor-causing bacteria.

IRISH SETTER ScentBan-An Irish Setter Exclusive scent control process, ScentBan is added to various materials from leathers to linings in footbeds. ScentBan kills bacteria that cause odors.

SNAKEGUARD-SnakeGuard construction features a non-woven material that is combined with leather or nylon to impede fangs, and other nasty elements from penetrating the boot upper.
