HAIX has launched the new Protector Light 2.0 forestry boot, which it describes as optimised for warmer weather while retaining high levels of protection and comfort.

Constructed from materials including oiled nubuck leather, the boot is certified to the S3 standard (EN ISO 20345:2011), ensuring a high degree of water resistance, toe protection, antistatic properties and enhanced midsole-penetration resistance. It is further certified with Class 1 cut protection.

 The Protector Light 2.0 works to maintain an optimum foot temperature, with the HAIX Climate System using the pumping movement of every step to circulate cool air into the boot via vent holes in the top. The anatomically formed footbed is said to absorb moisture and dries quickly, keeping feet dry and fresh.

Wear tests conducted by the Board of Trustees for Forestry and Forest Technology has certified that the Protector Light 2.0 achieves the KWF-Level Standard, guaranteeing the boots support and protect forestry and outdoor workers year-round.

“The new sole unit on the Protector Light 2.0 provides improved slip resistance and durability, alongside the tried-and-tested safety features of the original Protector Light, while decreasing overall boot weight,” said Simon Ash, HAIX UK sales manager. “We’re dedicated to helping forestry and outdoor workers make light work of seasonal tasks like felling and clearance by ensuring their footwear offers high levels of protection, reliability and comfort.”
