HAIX North America, Inc. has introduced a new boot for wildland firefighters, the Missoula 2.0. HAIX provided a sneak peek of the Missoula 2.0 on April 26 at FDIC 2018, the largest trade show for the fire/EMS industry.
The NFPA 1977-compliant boot is the company's second-generation hiking boot for wildland firefighting. This boot is a major overhaul of HAIX's popular Missoula. Incorporating feedback from firefighters on the frontlines, the company's engineers upgraded the boot to better meet the needs of wearers.
The new boot is lighter weight to alleviate leg fatigue, especially on longer hikes. The boot also incorporates HAIX's renowned Arch Support System for improved comfort. A new lightweight composite toe provides additional toe room and non-heat transferring safety protection as well as built-in puncture protection.
Missoula 2.0's newly-designed rubber sole is highly heat-resistant and anti-slip to provide greater footholds for a variety of rugged terrains. The built-in PU cushioning in the sole provides exceptional shock absorption.
For added convenience, the boot features a boot jack at the rear to make them easier to remove, and roller ball eyelets to make lacing smoother and faster.
