Military personnel see the world in a much different light than the average tourist. While at times they may visit countries or territories with familiar names, they are rarely there for sightseeing. One of the many difficult environments a military operation may encounter is tropical forest terrain. The high humidity, thick foliage, wet ground, along with other factors can significantly impact the progress a troop has in the jungle. Rather than letting the rainforest set you back, look for jungle boots that offer the features you need to fight back.
Trekking through a tropical forest can prove to be very difficult if the proper footwear is not in use. Humidity tends to make the interior of boots sweaty, tight and uncomfortable if worn for long periods of time. Today’s military jungle boots implement instep ventilation to allow air flow and prevent uncomfortable humidity. Some vents are also designed to drain moisture before it reaches your foot, keeping feet cozy and dry.
Unlike a dry weather boot, a jungle boot is specially made for wet and humid environments. Walking in the desert is much different than hiking through the jungle. In the jungle, muddy clay and puddles constantly dot the path. A unique boot sole implements large rubber divots in the bottom of the shoe to keep mud from building-up on the shoes’ bottom.
For outdoor comfort in humid and wet environments, jungle boots are essential to military success.
