Lowa Task Force – Making the World’s Best Tactical Boots! The Lowa Uplander GTX in Black is best described as premium tactical grade gear for your feet. The serious minded civilian, law enforcement professional, soldier and marine understands the importance of performance enhancing gear. The Uplander GTX will deliver stability, comfort and protection essential for success. AFMO knows your body requires a solid and capable base for consistent performance and this is why we proudly showcase Lowa Task Force Tactical and Combat Footwear.

Lowa was established in 1923 and for over 90 years they have been handcrafting rugged, dependable and purpose built boots. The Lowa heritage is Mountaineering Boots and they incorporate the quality, craftsmanship and attention to detail which established the company as a leader and innovator in the performance footwear category into their mission critical Tactical Boot and Combat Boot selections.

The Lowa Uplander Tactical Boots are comfortable the day you put them on. They are light weight – weighing in at under 3.5 LBS and the upper is constructed from a full grain leather,which takes a polish nicely, in combination with 1000 Denier Nylon Cordura at and above the ankle area. The full grain leather is made to take on abrasion. The leather is 2.0 MM and will break in quickly to contour to the unique shape of your foot. Boots that fit like a glove.

Why pay more ? One good reason – 2.0 MM Leather will hold up to hard use and abuse. The fancy brands made in china, selling for $110 -$165.00 use a thinner leather (looks like plastic) and will not hold up to the abrasions and wear and tear often encountered in the tactical environments.

The outsole is a Vibram Vialta rubber sole. The rubber sole is dense and dependable like an off road tire for your feet. Please note the proprietary rubber compound created for the Uplander GTX by the Lowa/Vibram collaboration provides secure grip and traction on moving terrain and slick surfaces. AFMO receives feedback from thousands of tactical boot and combat boot wearers annually and a common complaint with many is the soles a durable but hard and often slippery when navigating slick or uneven terrain. You will feel the difference when traversing with the Lowa Uplander. Vibram designed the outsole tread to force out mud and snow while the wearer is traveling at a steady clip enabling the wearer to focus on the mission at hand.

Why pay more ? One good reason - The tough but flexible Vibram Vialta outsole performs extremely well on gravel , asphalt and unforgiving cement terrain. These precision crafted works are not cheap but they will outlast the "fancy" Chinese made brands that sell for $110 - $165.00. You will not blow these soles out like the Chinese imports.

The Lowa Uplander GTX TF features a Gore-Tex lining. Gore-Tex is the waterproof /breathable lining standard and will ensure your feet stay comfortable and dry in rain and snow while breathing well in all climates. Focus on your mission – not on wet and cold feet.

Why pay more ? One good reason – Gore-Tex. Gore-Tex is the pinnacle of waterproof breathable membrane technology and Gore-Tex authorizes only a select few Tactical and Combat Boot manufacturers to manufacturer using the Gore-Tex membrane. Gore-Tex stands behind the waterproof/breathable performance with a "guaranteed to keep you dry promise". If a boot is marketed as "waterproof" and you do not see the Gore-Tex trademark it is not a premium waterproof and breathable boot.

Polyurethane midsoles. When selecting a hard use, versatile and all terrain Tactical or Combat Boot choose a boot featuring polyurethane midsoles. The Lowa Uplander features polyurethane midsoles which operate like a shock absorber for the feet. Polyurethane midsoles are expensive and only better grade boots feature them.

Why pay more ? Polyurethane is lightweight and dense with flexibility so you will have secure and reliable stability and support without sacrificing crucial stability. The density ensures the boot will hold up under stress and weight with repeated pounding.

Do you want a boot that will hold up when you pack heavy loads.

Do you like the option of securing your boot laces in a variety of options? (You can keep the boot laces looser around the arch and tighten around the ankles with the Lowa lacing system.
