Crafted from thick full-gran leather and packed with premium comfort features, our new Uplander Boots are ready for high-mileage hunts for pheasant, quail, dove, and all manner of feathered prey. Because bird hunts often take you into thorny cover and thick tangles, we fortified them with triple seam stitching and cowhide reinforcements on the toe—so they can take field punishment in stride.
Everyone knows birds gravitate to water in warm, dry weather, so we outfitted the Uplander with Guide Dry®—our finest waterproof/breathable technology—to keep you comfortable and dry should your pursuit take you into soggy marshes or wet creek beds. To ensure every step is comfortable, they feature OrthoLite® Open-Cell Foam insoles that cushion and return energy.
And with nice extras like a roomy moc toe, cushioned collar, and convenient side zipper, our Guide Gear® Uplander Boots deliver the comfort, support and durability to put birds in the bag…and look good doing it.
More on Guide Dry®
Guide Dry® is our own waterproof/breathable technology, designed from the ground up to provide the max in dry comfort while maintaining breathability. The membrane features tiny pores that keep larger waterproof molecules from getting in while allowing much smaller vapor molecules to escape—so there’s none of that stuffy discomfort found on cheap waterproof methods. Guide Dry® is tested and proven to perform at the highest level, and will retain its water-blocking properties long after other waterproof technologies begin to leak.
The OrthoLite® difference
OrthoLite Open-Cell Foam insoles are ultra-comfortable, highly breathable, moisture-wicking, and resistant to compression. Even after long-term wear, they hold their shape—so the comfort and fit NEVER change. The open-cell Foam is 95% to 100% breathable, allowing air to circulate in and around the foam, keeping the Boot interior cooler. When you DO work up a sweat, open-cell foam wicks away moisture to keep you comfortable.
