CANSEC 19 – Millbrook Tactical To Introduce Two New Winter Boots From Lowa

Millbrook Tactical is Lowa Footwear’s number one Retailer in Canada and for good reason. Millbrook works with Lowa to provide special versions of their boots, specifically for the needs of Canada’s uniformed professionals.

This year, they are introducing two new Lowa Task Force models. Both are cold weather boots.

The first is the Elite Patrol GTX Thermo TF. This mountaineering-style boot features a full grain leather upper with a 4-layer Gore-Tex performance comfort liner and 400 gr Primaloft insulation. The sole is Single injection DURA PU monowrap (support frame) combined with the grippy-on-ice Vibram Arctic Grip sole.

The boots seen are prototypes, but the brown final boots will feature a brown rubber rand, rather than the black seen here. The final production boot will also incorporate closed hook lacing. I fully expect demand for these in the UK.

The second boot is the R-8 GTX Thermo TF. This is more of a duty boot with a full grain leather polishable toe.

Like the Elite Patrol, the R-8 features a 4-layer Gore-Tex performance comfort liner and 400 gr Primaloft insulation as well as the Vibram Mottarone Arctic Grip sole. The final boot will feature closed lacing hooks.

Lowa Task Force boots are available in Canada from Millbrook Tactical.

    Very impressive looking boot. Too bad they had to ruin it by adding Gore-Tex.

      Lots of non GTX boots to buy though bro. This would be a good replacement for the issued gtx boots which are being phased out.
