Product #: 3.8.1
When I told the Marine Corps about the new Herman Survivor boots, they asked about an overboot. They wanted an overboot that could be used with existing issue combat boots. It had to be as light as possible, easy to put on, and had to perform to -25 degrees. The weight of large size is 12 ounces each. I had made several custom Joe Redington mukluks that are rear entry, so this became rear entry for ease of putting on; if you wear a good sock like the Smartwool brand, -25 is not a problem.
The sole is the same construction as I use for the Joe Redington mukluk. The upper shell is a waterproof 600 denier polyester and the lining is 200 denier oxford nylon, also waterproof laminated to the L-6 Lamilite. In addition, there is a one-inch web strap that goes around the ankle to hold it in place.
Hunters, you can now have warm feet if you are in a tree stand. You needn't take the boots off if you have to get out of the tree in a hurry. There are products on the market that you put on when you get into your stationary position. These were not made for walking. With the Wiggy overboots, however, you will be able to walk, run and, to some degree, climb.
They are made to fit all hiking or hunting boots.
Sizes: S 5-6
