OR – Mountain Shepherd Survival School

Saturday, August 4th, 2012


Mountain ShepHerd Survival School has teamed up with Rocky’s New S2V line to incorporate a real world survival ethos into the line.

Rocky sent two engineers to a private course to get a basic grounding in survival techniques and ever since the crew at Mountain Shepherd Survival School has been available to provide technical support throughout Rocky’s design process.

Rocky has incorporated the 7 survival priorities into their designs; Positive Mental Attitude, Wilderness First Aid, Sheltercraft, Firecraft, Signalling, Water Procurement and Food Procurement (in order of importance).

For example, this survival kit is called the Grenade and comes packaged with the new Rocky S2V Center Hold Windshirt.


Additionally, Rocky offers the S2V Essentials Kit with Provision Jacket.


Mountain Shepherd Survival School trains everyone from Boy Scouts to SOF and they model their course on the US Air Force Survival Course.

Here’s a quick update on the Rocky Jungle Boot. Testing in jungle environments has been very positive but testers asked for a slightly less stiff lining in the toe box. Test samples used the same liner as snake boots in order to defend against black palm. Rocky has identified a new material and these should be ready for market in late summer. The boots will still have unlined Cordura uppers, metal mesh screen behind the drain holes and ‘snail snot’ on the toe.


Rocky Introduces the S2V Jungle Boot

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Fans of Rocky’s S2V series of boots will be pleased to hear that they have formally introduced the Jungle Boot. They worked with a military unit to combine the basic S2V styling with features for use in the constantly wet environment of the tropics. It is an unlined boot with a toe covered in “snail snot” to protect the rough out leather Cordura from the wear and tear of wait-a-minute vines. Additionally, the sides are generously vented with holes punched into the leather and backed by a stainless steel mesh to protect the ankles from thorns. The upper is made from a combination of Cordura and rough out leather.

“We teamed up with some of world’s best soldiers to develop the highest performing, most breathable jungle boot on the market,” said Steve Graham, marketing manager for ROCKY Duty. “As our customers attest, nothing but the finest material goes into the S2V, which guarantees performance you can count on.”

The S2V Jungle Boot is Berry compliant and will be available at retail by fall 2011.
