Bay Apache is a Chippewa® 5 to 5.5 oz leather containing a high level of wax and oil which is applied during the tanning process. Bay Apache is a light brown or tan color leather.
The Chip-A-Tex Waterproof bootie surrounds your foot to keep the worst weather away from your skin, and the Dri-Lex lining wicks moisture away from your skin to keep the foot dry and comfortable.
This boot is available with steel toe ASTM F2413-05 standards which require the toe-cap to be designed and built as an integral part of the footwear, and able to withstand a compression of 1750 to 2500 pounds (depending on rating specification) of force before the cap starts to crush or crack.
Electrical Hazard rated boots protect the wearer from electrical hazards if they step on a live wire (up to a certain voltage level) because of the non-conductive electrical shock resistant soles and heals. To be EH rated, footwear must first pass impact and compression resistance tests (i.e., incorporate ASTM approved steel toes). EH ratings are attained through an independent testing facility.
Boots are subjected to the harshest treatment of all outdoor wear - they are truly "under pressure" to get the job done. This is especially hard on insulation because it works by creating air pockets in the fibers - the compacting action of walking effectively destroys the insulating factor. Chippewa uses Thinuslate Ultra Insulation for footwear over the toes, vamp, heel and ankle for maximum warmth.
The 9" Waterproof Super Logger is available in four styles:
