Traditional waterproof gear utilizes seam sealed waterproof fabrics. This results in a floating inner, and allows water and debris to stagnate between layers, making the shoe or garment feel cold and heavy. On the other hand, OutDry features a patented lamination process that bonds an absolutely waterproof membrane directly to the garment's highly breathable outermost layer. Water is sealed out at every possible entry point, giving OutDry gear a superior fit that stays dry, warm and comfortable.
Extreme performance footwear insulation from 3M is loftier and thicker than original Thinsulate insulationâ€”for even greater warmth and comfort. Yet still thin enough to allow complete freedom of movement.
It starts with a collection of colors taken straight from the outdoors and photographed in carefully controlled lighting. A mathematical algorithm takes the colors and writes organically-shaped pixels using the specific color information. The resulting pattern, while still digital is far more organic in appearance than other digital patterns because A-TACS® Camo replaces the unnatural angled pixels with organic pixels. The organic pixels are then digitally modified to create real world elements without subscribing to the traditional limb and leaf mimicking patterns. The end results are patterns that eliminate the human outline from as close as a few feet and minimizing the blobbing effect when viewed from a distance.
First I’ll start off by saying this review is for the boots purchased and in no way a knock on Bob Wards. I’m a Browning guy from head to toe including my rifle. Their Hells Speed line of hunting clothing has been great so I figured I couldn’t go wrong with these boots and they even match the atacs pattern. Boy was I wrong! A mile into my hunt on a wet morning my feet were starting to get damp. Another half hour later they were soaked! All day hunt six miles total with wet feet! That sucks! Remind you these boots advertise omni dry technology?! Secondly the stiffness of the upper part of the boot gave my ankle such a bruise, I could barely hike out. Next day of hunt I couldn’t even consider wearing them and they were still wet 48 hours later. Unfortunately I’m out $120 for a boot I doubt I’ll wear again... maybe in the desert where there’s no chance of precipitation!
