For Fall 2018, Danner® introduces the Weatherized Collection with the new insulated Raptor 650 leading the charge, offering the ultimate in style, performance, comfort and warmth. Inspired by life in mountain towns and winter trekking, and featuring the same platform as the Explorer 650 hiking boot with added cold weather features such as 400G PrimaLoft® insulation, fleece-lined uppers with durable wool and full-grain leather, and Danner® Dry waterproof protection to keep feet warm and dry throughout the harshest of winter conditions. The Vibram® SPE midsole is two times more resilient than standard EVA, and the Vibram® Escape outsole with Megagrip technology offers superior traction and grip on wet, icy surfaces. Retailing for $240, the Raptor 650 will be available for men and women in two colors each – both with a quilted upper, and the women’s also including a touch of faux fur around the collar.
Winter-Ready Raptor 650 for Men and Women
“Danner hiking boots are already known to perform exceptionally well in winter conditions, but the new Weatherized Collection introduces best-in-class PrimaLoft® insulation for colder temps,” says Will Pennartz, Senior Marketing Manager for Danner. “With the new Raptor 650 in particular, we wanted to add a bit more style to create one truly weatherproof, fully functional, go-to boot for winter conditions.”
Also included in the new Weatherized Collection for Fall 2018, the award-winning Mountain 600 will be available in an insulated version for men and women. Featuring the same Vibram® Fuga outsole with Megagrip and Vibram® SPE midsole for maximum rebound, comfort and support as the original, the new Mountain 600 Insulated adds warmth with a 200G PrimaLoft® insulated upper, fleece lining and Danner® Dry waterproof protection. Retailing for $220, the Mountain 600 Insulated will be offered in two colors for men and one color for women.
