IRISH SETTER® MAKES NEW VAPRTREK HUNTING BOOTS EVEN LIGHTER, WITH BETTER TRACTION, DURABILITY & COMFORT

SH02831Irish Setter VaprTrek

Irish Setter VaprTrek #2831

RED WING, MN (December 2018) – The original Irish Setter VaprTrek® 8″ hunting boots were 40% lighter than traditional Irish Setter big game hunting boots without sacrificing support or stability. After their launch in 2014, this family of extremely lightweight boots quickly became a top seller. Since then the product team has been researching new technologies and construction methods to move the breakthrough design forward. After conducting materials testing and field wear trials, Irish Setter is proud to introduce the new VaprTrek lineup, which is even lighter while delivering better traction on rough terrain, all with improved durability and outstanding all-day comfort.

The great fit and go-all-day comfort that made VaprTrek boots so popular with hunters and hikers remains a top priority. A contoured last mirrors foot shape for excellent fit, while lace-to-toe eyelets help customize the fit.

A highly breathable and durable polyurethane memory foam footbed creates instant and all-day comfort for less fatigue. And it remains resilient – not succumbing to compression like most EVA footbeds. The uppers provide other comfort and performance features like waterproof, full grain leather, lightweight Rip Stop fabric, military-grade quick dry linings which wick away foot moisture, UltraDry™ waterproofing for long-lasting protection, a memory foam collar for instant comfort in all temperatures, a Cushin™ Comfort Tongue that provides comfort in the shin area and ScentBan™ scent control that eliminates odors within the boot. Select models feature Primaloft® insulation for warmth in cool environments.

Hunters look to Irish Setter for durable footwear and the new VaprTrek does not disappoint. Armatec™ XT technology adds durability and abrasion resistance in high wear areas of the heel and toe while leather reinforcement is strategically placed to protect flex points for enhanced durability over time.

These ultra-lightweight boots provide greater traction and support to allow for more time in the field with less fatigue. A lightweight, nylon shank adds arch support and EnerG technology within the dual density midsole delivers extra comfort in the heel and forefoot impact zones. A harder durometer RPM material is used in the midsole and it also extends to the outsole. Rubber sections of the outsole with multi-tiered lugs provide superior traction on uneven terrain and self-cleaning lugs shed debris with every step. Rubber pods are utilized for enhanced traction and durability. Tiered toe treads offer grip control when walking up steep inclines. The wrap-around instep provides protection from, and extra grip for, tree stand rungs or ATV foot pegs. The outsole provides best-in-class slip-resistance.

“We’ve transformed the VaprTrek boot. The all-new VaprTrek boots are even lighter than before while providing better traction, durability and comfort,” explained Charley Bryant, Irish Setter Product Merchant. “You just have to try them on to feel the instant comfort. And that comfort is engineered to last, so you’ll be comfortable all day.”

SB_3CL_ANY_PRl


SH02870_WEB jpeg

SH02895_WEBRED WING, MN (June 2015) — Irish Setter® VaprTrek boots with RPM technology are extremely lightweight and hunt-ready. The existing 8” VaprTrek hunting boots, which are 40% lighter than traditional Irish Setter big game hunting boots without sacrificing support or stability, have become a favorite. Irish Setter has extended this incredible technology to all-season hiker heights.

Breakthrough design and development allowed Irish Setter to craft RPM composite material that’s comfortable, wears like iron, and significantly reduces the weight of the boot. Strategically designed for uneven terrain and abrasive conditions, the RPM outsole can be found on the VaprTrek™ family of boots in both Big Game and Outdoor categories of hunting footwear. The RPM sole features a bi-directional lug pattern for increased traction and balance during heel strike and toe off. The wrap-around instep provides protection and aids in gripping tree stand rungs or ATV foot pegs. Armatec™ heel and toe protection guards against ground hazards. Underfoot comfort is enhanced with an anatomically-correct polyurethane and high-rebound foam footbed with a ScentBan™ odor inhibiting top cover. And a ScentBan lining delivers scent control through a process that kills odor-causing bacteria.

Irish Setter VaprTrek hunting boots incorporate UltraDry™ waterproofing so feet stay dry and boots stay breathable. A memory foam collar forms to fit the ankle for comfortable stability in the boot shaft. The Cushin™ Comfort Tongue offers long-lasting comfort in the shin area. A speed lacing system with one-tug tightening provides fast, snug lacing.

Irish Setter Adds Snake Boot To Ladyhawk Women’s Hunting Boot Line; Sales Benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation

Irish Setter Ladyhawk Viper Snake Boot #4886

Irish Setter Ladyhawk Viper Snake Boot #4886

RED WING, MN (January 2009) — Irish Setter has created a women’s specific snake boot for hunting in snake territory The Ladyhawk Viper #4886 is a 15” knee boot featuring Realtree All-Purpose camo, 200 grams of Thinsulate Insulation, SnakeGuard, ScentBan, easy on/off side zipper and Ultra Dry waterproof construction.

 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 Ladyhawk #4885 a 6” non-insulated, all brown boot and two 7” boots with ScentBan and UltraDry waterproof construction. The Ladyhawk #3886 features 600 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation and brown on brown leather/nylon uppers.

The camo versions include a camo-wrapped EVA midsole. All Ladyhawks shares the streamlined silhouette, design details and proven performance features. The boots are available in women’s sizes Medium 5-11.

“Irish Setter was pleased with the response to our Fall 08 Ladyhawk line. This new addition gives women even more choices in their hunting footwear,” explained Irish Setter Product Manager, Kyle Rackiewicz.

Irish Setter Designs Uniquely Comfortable Snake Boot For Upland Hunters

RED WING, MN (June 2008) — Upland hunters will appreciate the comfort of Irish Setter’s new Wingshooter DSS Viper 17” snake boot. The innovative design features an integrated gaiter which rises from the boot base with waterproof and snakeguard membranes extending from the foot to the top of shaft. The integrated gaiter is more flexible and accommodating than a standard boot shaft making it significantly more comfortable while hunting. A drawcord closure at the top allows hunters to cinch the boots securely over pants or gather the fabric neatly when tucking pant legs into the boots. The innovative design also includes a conventional lace system to customize fit in key performance areas.

The Irish Setter Wingshooter DSS Viper also features a unique new sole platform to increase flexibility and reduce muscle and bone fatigue. The Dynamic Suspension System is a proprietary mechanism that reduces fatigue caused by underfoot pressure through a shock attenuating mechanism. The system works by redistributing the downward force produced under the heel during each stride. The end result is a more enjoyable experience in the field, with fresher legs over the course of multi-day hunting trips.

This non-insulated snake boot with upland styling combines high quality distressed-look leather and classic waxed oil cloth. Rugged TecTuff material protects wear areas of the boot to extend boot life.

“We designed our new Viper series after receiving overwhelming input from hunters operating in snake country who are looking for improved comfort and performance without sacrificing protection.  Our field trials have confirmed that it will set a new standard for performance in this category of hunting boots,” said Kyle Rackiewicz, Irish Setter product manager.

The suggested retail price is $189 for this 17” snake boot. The new Wingshooter DSS Viper hunting boots will be available in January 2009 at leading outdoor retailers. Visit www.irishsetterboots.com for the retailer nearest you.
