Irish Setter Ladyhawk Women's Hunting Boot #4885

RED WING, MN (January 2009) — Irish Setter introduced a women’s hunting boot line in Fall 08. This latest addition provides an option for women looking for a 6” non-insulated, all brown boot. The Ladyhawk #4885 shares the streamlined silhouette, design details and proven performance features of the Irish Setter Ladyhawk line.

Irish Setter’s Ladyhawk hunting boot line benefits women in several ways. Irish Setter donates two percent of each Ladyhawk boot purchase to support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®. The boots not only benefit a worthy cause – they also aim to improve the fit, comfort and performance of the sportswoman with its unique design and fit.

While most women’s hunting boots are nothing more than modified men’s boots, the Irish Setter Ladyhawks have been specifically created for women. Irish Setter developed a last that is shaped and detailed to provide superior fit for women. From a lower volume heel cup, to adjusted arch support to a more accommodating collar, the detail in these boots is geared toward higher performance and comfort for women.

The Irish Setter Ladyhawk series includes the new Ladyhawk Viper #4886 snake boot with Realtree All-Purpose camo, 200 grams of Thinsulate insulation, SnakeGuard, ScentBan, Ultra Dry waterproof membrane and side zipper and two 7” boots with ScentBan and UltraDry waterproof membranes. The Ladyhawk #3886 features 600 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation and brown on brown leather/nylon uppers. For hunters who need more insulation, the Ladyhawk #3887 contains 1000 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation in a Mossy Oak Break Up Camo/Brown leather package. The camo versions include a camo-wrapped EVA midsole. The boots are available in women’s sizes Medium 5-11.

“Irish Setter was pleased with the response to our Ladyhawk line. This new addition gives women more choices in their hunting footwear,” explained Irish Setter Product Manager, Kyle Rackiewicz.

The new Ladyhawk boots will be available in July 2009 at leading outdoor retailers. The Ladyhawk #4885’s suggested retail price is $109. Visit www.irishsetterboots.com for the retailer nearest you.

Irish Setter’s Tamarack Ventilator Hunting Boot Performs In Cool Mornings and Warm Afternoons

Irish Setter Tamarack Ventilator #864

Irish Setter Tamarack Ventilator #864

RED WING, MN (January 2009) — Irish Setter’s Research & Development team spent two years designing the versatile Tamarack Ventilator for hunters who want one hunting boot that performs well in the cold of the morning and the heat of the afternoon. The developers combined Irish Setter’s award-winning breathable design with insulation and Gore-Tex Scent-Lok waterproof breathable membrane. This boot was field tested over 22 months in a variety of terrain and conditions, including early season scouting and elk hunting in the Rockies.

The Tamarack Ventilator is built with a tough, lightweight monofilament barrier over breathable airmesh panels and breathable open cell foam. These materials are layered with 400 grams of Thinsulate Ultra Insulation and a Gore-Tex Scent-Lok waterproof membrane to create a technical hunting boot with premium components and construction. The bottom package consists of an Ultra Arch Internal TPU Torsion Stabilizer Shank, an EVA midsole and the Tamarack sole – a dual density carbon rubber outsole with aggressive lugs for tough terrain. This lightweight boot is designed for active hunting in conditions that require a great amount of walking and hiking.

 “These boots are great for all day hunts,” explained Irish Setter Product Manager, Kyle Rackiewicz. “We’ve tested these boots with game wardens and guides and the feedback on the performance was phenomenal. We wanted to thoroughly test this new concept because combining high breathability with insulation is a novel concept in boots. You really need to try these boots on to see how they perform.”

The dark brown Irish Setter Tamarack Ventilator #864 will retail for $199 and will be available in July 2009 at leading outdoor retailers. Visit www.irishsetterboots.com for the retailer nearest you.

IRISH SETTER’S SHADOW TREK BOOT OFFERS LIGHTWEIGHT COMFORT

Irish Setter expands its popular big game hunting line with the addition of the Shadow Trek. Irish Setter’s lightest weight boot, the Shadow Trek is designed for hunts that require extensive walking, providing an optimal fit and extreme comfort.

A great choice for hunts during moderate weather and varying terrain, the Shadow Trek is offered in both non-insulated and 800 gram options. Built on the same last as Irish Setter’s popular Tamarack style, the Shadow Trek is also a great fitting boot. Designed to closely mirror the shape of hunters’ feet, these big game boots feel broken in as soon as they are laced.

“The Shadow Trek offers extreme comfort, right from the moment you step in,” explained Mark Dinndorf, Irish Setter Director of Product Development.

Featuring an all-Cordura upper with either Mossy Oak Breakup or Realtree Hardwoods HD Green, the Shadow Trek also utilizes a GORE-TEX™ waterproof membrane — a great boot package from one boot.

The Irish Setter Shadow Trek begins at $129 and is available now. Visit http://www.irishsetterboots.com for the retailer nearest you.
