Warrior West – Bates Introduces Two New AR 670-1 Compliant Boots

Bates Footwear has introduced two new Coyote Brown, AR 670-1 compliant boots.

Cobra Hot Weather Jungle Boot

The 8″ Cobra features updated jungle styling with flesh out cattle hide uppers combined with abrasion resistant nylon panels. As you can see, they’ve perforated the leather to enhance breathability (looks like pinholes in the photo) and incorporated a low profile lacing system, The boot also features Bates’ anti-fatigue Endurance Performance System, a stabilizing nylon shank and a multi-terrain rubber lug outsole.

Ranger Hot Weather Boot

The Ranger Hot Weather also offers flesh out cattle hide uppers combined with abrasion resistant nylons panels. However, in addition to perforations in the leather in the instep area of the boot, the Ranger features to toe lacing.  Also, there is a stabilizing nylon shank, EVA foam midsole for custom and a rubber lug outsole.

    Both of those look great – especially the Cobra. Might have to get my hands on a pair after I wear out these Garmonts…unless Garmont releases coyote brown T8’s…

    Agreed. T8s served me well. I saw a pair of Reebok boots in coyote brown that are 670-1 compliant, look very similar to the Jungle boots that Altima used to manufacture and they come with a Vibram sole. Anyone tried them out yet?
