When you require a boot that can handle punishing conditions while offering comfort, flexibility, and support evaluate the Lowa Uplander Desert thoroughly and you will like this option. The boot weighs in at under 3.5 LBS and the flexibility combined with durability and outsole reliability makes the Lowa Uplander a favorite among discerning Special Operations personnel.
These boots perform extremely well in hot and arid climates as they are lined with a quick drying and moisture wicking fabric. The tactical boot’s upper is constructed using a durable 2.0 MM split leather in combination with 1000 Denier Cordura brand nylon. The Cordura delivers lightweight and durable performance with water proof properties and the split leather is tough, finished to hold up against rough wear and tear and abrasion.
The outsole is flexible with unmatched durability and lightweight. The Vibram Vialta is the result of a Lowa/Vibram collaborative effort which creates an outsole that takes on gravel, rocky terrain, asphalt and cement without breaking down. In addition the boot is stellar in the field as the Vibram Vialta expels mud and snow with ease. Those navigating uneven terrain or slick surfaces will be pleased with the Uplander’s secure footing.
Lowa tactical and combat boots are recognized for premium quality polyurethane midsoles. Polyurethane is a dense while lightweight material that performs well as a mid layer below the insole and above the outsole. It offers cushion, support and durability while remaining flexible in cold and warm extremes. Polyurethane is expensive and requires manufacturing skill and expertise to incorporate properly – this is why only the best in performance boots feature polyurethane midsoles and Lowa stands out.
The Lowa Uplanders fit is unmatched. They securely hug the contour of your calf down to the ankle and cradle the foot nicely. The Lowa Task Force boots fit true to size and will be comfortable right out of the box while forming nicely to your feet during the first few days of wear.
If you appreciate quality components, a great fit, unmatched comfort and flexibility and are willing to pay for long lasting performance, reliability and durability choose a Lowa Uplander today – you will be proud you did!
