Danner USMC Rat 8 GTX Boot

Posted in Gear

Flawless Fit & Tough Traction:

Rats that boast USMC approval. Coated in rough-out nubuck leather for strength. Advanced protection is gained with 1000 Denier nylon. Lined with waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex. Adding Dri-Lex to the mix ensures you a rapid dry time, whilst erasing stench.

Stability is gained via the double stitch-down design. Together with a speed lace structure and lace-to-toe fastening. Rubber Vibram outsoles confirm superior strength and traction. With Vibram’s Dri-Ice compound added for highest grade traction. In addition, the Rat 8 bears abrasion resistant toe and heel caps. We wouldn’t want a boot in the stomach from these.

Berry compliant, the USMC Rat 8 Boot valuably guarantees no break-in time. Measuring 8” in height, whilst considered lightweight, it remains rugged. Of note as per their namesake, this Rat 8 boot is intelligent, quick and confident.
