HAIX Missoula 2.1 Boot, Certified NFPA Hiking Boot for Wildland Firefighting (111011-H-XX)

Wildland firefighters subject themselves to one of the most physically demanding jobs in the world, requiring both physical and mental toughness to face the challenging and ever-changing conditions experienced with wildland firefighting. You need a boot that can match the challenges you face, that is as tough as you are. The new Missoula 2.1 fire boots are up to that task and more and are certified NFPA 1977 for wildland firefighting.

The HAIX Missoula 2.1 NFPA hiking boots for wildland firefighting were built to meet the exacting demands of the wildland firefighter. The durably tough European split bull leather is water-resistant, hydrophobic, and breathable to keep your feet as comfortable as possible. The lighter weight of the Missoula 2.1 helps to alleviate leg fatigue while on long hikes, since the less weight you have on your feet, the less energy you have to expend while walking. Offering not only safety protection but comfort, for those who can spend all day on their feet in the most rugged of terrain.

Our newly designed highly heat-resistant, Vibram, the anti-slip sole will give you greater footholds on whatever terrain you have to face. The special design of the heel offers strong footholds on even the steepest and uneven terrain. And the sturdy and stable midsole ensures you won’t feel every rock and stone as you hike. We also added a built-in boot jack at the rear of the boot to make it easier for you to get your boots off after a long day.

Our two-zone lacing system allows you to adjust the tension separately on different sections of the boot, the upper and the lower part. You are able to adjust the HAIX wildland boots for a fit tailored just for you and the terrain in which you are hiking. For mainly downward descents, tighten the upper and the lowers evenly to prevent your foot from sliding forward into the boot. For mainly upward ascents, leave the upper a little looser so the upper does not constrict your shin. The two-zone lacing also provides better ankle support to prevent potential ankle injuries out on the line. The new roller ball eyelets on the lower part of the lacing system offer minimal friction, reducing wear and tear on the flame-resistant Nomex laces.

Missoula 2.1 NFPA hiking boots for wildland firefighting are available in narrow, medium, and wide widths with whole and half sizes from 4 to 13.

Now’s the time to try out the latest generation Missoula 2.1, and see and feel the difference.
