Our HQ ISSUE® Canyon Boot is a tactical-inspired hiker that keeps you energetic and ready for action. It looks a like military-style boot, but lace it up, and you'll feel the familiar comfort and liveliness of your favorite hiking boot. They feature water-repellent suede and mesh uppers, and come outfitted with a wider toe box that delivers a pinch-free fit as well as a more stable platform. Plus, they feature our Guide Dry® 100% waterproof/breathable membrane to ensure dry feet without stuffy, sweaty discomfort.
Whether you're scrambling up rocky ridges, making that long 500-yard walk downrange, or running the course, these deliver extra stability and traction to propel you forward. A wider toe box provides both more 'elbow room' for your toes, as well as a more stable platform to help you negotiate steep climbs and descents. An aggressive outsole completes the package, delivering traction on uneven surfaces, steep inclines and more, giving you the extra confidence to forge ahead.
Guide Dry® waterproof/breathable technology is our top level of waterproof protection, and it’s a key ingredient in our best HQ ISSUE® outerwear and footwear. Designed to keep you moving forward despite wet weather, Guide Dry® is tested and proven to deliver superior waterproof performance with comfortable breathability. How does it work? It’s simple. Water molecules are larger than vapor molecules. Guide Dry® features a special membrane with tiny pores that prevent larger water molecules from penetrating the exterior. That’s the waterproof part. Meanwhile, smaller vapor molecules are able to pass through, transferring body heat and sweat from the inside out. That’s the breathable part. So you get 100% waterproof protection, without the stuffy feel of traditional waterproof material.
