Irish Setter MudTrek rubber boots are the lightest rubber boots in the brand’s history, and they’re among the lightest on the market today. MudTrek boots are made to fit. Hunters can choose options with a snug, athletic fit or a traditional, roomier full fit. Men, women and young adults can select from unisex whole sizes from 4 – 15.

TempSens technology helps regulate the temperature within the boot to maintain constant foot comfort. In hot conditions, the system reacts so moisture is hyper-wicked away from the foot, facilitating evaporative cooling. This helps keep feet cooler, drier and more comfortable. In colder conditions, the system also pulls moisture from the skin, but traps it to create a thermal barrier that helps maintain a constant, comfortable temperature inside the boot.

ScentBan™ antimicrobial scent control helps eliminates odors within the boot. In insulated styles with ThermoBoost technology, warmth is provided without additional bulk. And 3D fleece linings provide warmth and facilitate airflow through the lining. A polyurethane footbed and lightweight RPM midsole provide long-lasting, all-day underfoot comfort. A convenient heel kick aids boot removal.

These styles utilize the aggressive Rubber Mudder sole which provides superb stability and traction in tough terrain. The self-cleaning lugs help remove mud and dirt with every step. The neoprene/rubber upper makes them waterproof and durable.

Style # 4866 has a traditional, roomier full fit with wider leg and ankle openings and a convenient side zipper for easy on/off. This 17” brown vulcanized rubber boot features SnakeGuard which provides resistance to fangs and thorns.
