Chippewa Boots® developed functional footwear that will stand up to the ruggedness of the great outdoors with their Utility line in the Rugged Outdoor collection. No matter whether the task is utilitarian or recreational, these boots will stand up to the job. These 6" work boots are made with waterproof oil and they feature the breathable Chip-A-Tex® waterproof membrane system. Water is locked out by the membrane shield but air passes through from the foot for maximum comfort. Thinsulate™ Ultra is a lightweight, breathable, and moisture resistant insulation that is slightly thicker than regular Thinsulate™ insulation. This provides greater warmth and comfort, yet it's still thin enough to allow complete freedom of movement.
