I was just in the Pacific Northwest and can attest that you need a wide variety of gear to handle what that environment will throw at you. And, particularly in the more remote areas, you also have to rely on your community and share your expertise provisions in order to get through the grueling months. In true PNW fashion, Danner and Filson have come together in an effort to offer up the perfect hunting boot for slushing through the wet terrain of the region. Or your urban environment. It’s up to you.
Using Danner’s popular Grouse boot as a base, Filson’s much beloved tin-cloth fabric was added to provide uncompromising protection from brush and rain, also adding a dose of that Filson aesthetic. A layer of Goretex lines the boot to make it all waterproof, the Vibram sierra sole is held together with Danner’s famous stitch-down construction and the whole shebang is made in the USA. The only way this collab could be more PNW was if it was given a splash of Seattle Seahawk “action green.”
