The Prowl is a premium stalking boot with a revolutionary knitted design. Built for the forest floor where weight and feel are paramount, the Prowl still performs extremely well in a wide variety of hunting environments. New technology now allows us to create the boot’s main body out of a single piece of knitted fabric, the benefits of this are significant.
The first advantage of a single-piece upper is durability. Seams and stitching points are always the weakest link in the chain, so immediately these can be dramatically minimized, this also reduces weight and bulk. Additionally, this knitted material conforms to your foot shape for increased comfort.
This construction method also allows the main body of the boot to be made from an incredible fabric. The new Hydrafuse™ Xfyre™ woven nylon fabric is highly abrasion resistant, flexible, and significantly lighter than leather, especially when wet. This core body is then able to be wrapped in a super-light, ultra-durable TPU bonded web overlay, and full rand, which creates additional structure to the shape and ramps up the durability even more.
On the inside of the Xfyre™ is a Hydrafuse™ REINsoc™ waterproof/breathable membrane, covered in foot-mapped foam padding for amazing comfort and support. On the bottom of the Prowl is a Vibram® Inverness sole, this sole provides superb traction on slippery and soft surfaces with its aggressive lugs and well-defined heel-stop design. Between your foot and the Inverness sole is the new EVA StalkAIR 2.0™ midsole. This midsole houses a full-length tapered nylon sole plate which offers the perfect lightweight balance of support and feel across soft – medium terrain.
The asymmetric tongue design reduces bulk and bunching, increases comfort, and decreases room for water to creep in over the top of the boot. A combination of lightweight fabric lace loops in the lower boot and heavy-duty steel in the upper make sure snugging the boot around your foot shape is easy, and the high ankle support adds major benefits when sidling unstable terrain.
