Product Preview: Under Armour Ridge Reaper Elevation Hunting Boots

posted on July 6, 2016

Utilizing waterproof leather, breathable mesh and a Gore-Tex lining, Under Armour’s Ridge Reaper Elevation Hunting Boots provide a balance of comfort and durability that hunters in the field will appreciate. The company’s Scent Control technology traps and suppresses foot odor to help keep quarry from detecting human presence until it’s too late. An Ortholite memory foam sock-liner and additional cushioning in the heel provide maximum comfort while minimizing slippage and rubbing, and a fiberglass-composite shank and EVA midsole provide support and shock absorption. Aggressive traction outsoles offer hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts the traction they need while traversing the harshest of mountain terrain. Under Armour Ridge Reaper Elevation Hunting Boots are offered in sizes 7-16, and weigh approximately 4 lbs. per pair. Price: $350.
