Made for occasional lowland hiking on snow-covered terrain and in cold weather. For occasional use. Best price for a waterproof and warm product. Rubber sole for an increased lifespan and better grip. With its mid upper, this boot lets you hike in full confidence.
WarmthComfort temperature 0°C / Temperature limit -5°C.
WaterproofWaterproof and breathable membrane to keep feet dry.
TractionRubber sole and 3 mm lugs for good traction on snow.
Easy dressingRip-tab to easily get boots on/off.
Footwear waterproofing test.
Tested both in the lab and real-world usage, the boots guarantee optimum waterproofing and breathability. First, the shoe is immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Next, shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
3 levels of waterproofing.
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (around 16 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
Shoe waterproofing level.
The Arpenaz 100 Mid Warm shoe is waterproof for 2000 flexes.
SNOWCONTACT soles are made using a special component. Designs are optimised to provide excellent all-terrain grip and maximal traction all winter long. SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow.
Measurement of the boots' thermal insulation.
It used to be impossible to tell the exact temperature down to which your shoes would protect you. Now it can be done: the temperature limits for use are shown on your Quechua shoes. Using cold sensing tests while hiking and in the lab with a panel of customers, we measured the thermal resistance of our shoes. This is how we pinpoint the comfort temperature (100% satisfaction) and the limit temperature (70% satisfaction).
