Pentagon Achilles Trekking Boots

Pentagon Achilles Trekking Boots

After many years of research and development and working closely with Military, Police, Fire fighters, Rescue and Security teams, Pentagon have developed a totally new product series, which has come to be known as “Tactical Sportswear™”. This was their answer to an advanced military clothing and gear concept, which incorporates quality, technology, design and aesthetic all in one package.

I really like the fact these days that many tactical clothing manufacturers, including Pentagon, are making kit that you can use both on and off the range; whilst the fabrics and technologies are still way up there in terms of performance, the design element means that you can have footwear that is not just going to give protection from properly wet weather, but that actually looks kind of cool too. I’ve heard people over the last year or so referring to a thing called “The Tactical Lifestyle”, and although I’m loathe to say it, quite a lot of this follows on from “The Tactical Athlete” school and requires a certain ‘look’ that is just as much about training, fitness, mindset, and the right kit as it is about anything.

That, however, is a story for another day, but what I will say now is that Pentagon seem to be right at the very forefront of this; at IWA 2017 I saw some absolutely stunning kit on their stand, and I’m pleased that this now seems to be rolling out to the retailers around the globe. The gear looks in some ways like that I use for rock climbing and mountaineering, but with a ‘tactical’ slant and extra features built in.

Composite construction

The Achilles Trekking Boots are a superb example of this. Available with an 8- or 6-inch cuff the durable and lightweight boots feature a suede leather construction with durable 1200 denier Nylon material, breathable Coolmax inner lining, and a clever eyelet setup for a perfect fit.

These robust trekking boots come either with a 4000mm Dintex waterresistant membrane for wetter environments, or unlined for warmer weather. They have comfortable inner padding, a rubberised toe cap and heel, and a removable Ortholite insole for all-day comfort.

The high-performance Pentagon Achilles Trekking Boots provide superb protection to the foot and ankle in every situation and are ideal for all kinds of outdoor activities; these appear to be a perfect choice for anyone who is looking for military quality footwear designed especially for extreme conditions.

The full feature set comprises:

  • Lightweight and breathable Action leather/1200D ripstop Nylon construction
  • Durable 1200 denier Nylon Ripstop fabric
  • Coolmax inner liner moves moisture away from the feet
  • Removable Ortholite insole prevents odour and fungus, wicks away moisture and provide air flow for long lasting comfort
  • EVA mid sole and rubber outer sole
  • Comfortable inner padding on tongue and upper
  • Rubberised and strengthened toe cap and heel
  • Strong laces with speed lacing system
  • Seven eyelets for better fit
  • Nylon loop on the back and tongue
  • Upper material: Action Leather, 1200D Ripstop Nylon
  • Outsole material: Rubber
  • Mid sole material: EVA

The Achilles Trekking Boots form part of Pentagon Tactical Duty series, and are well priced from £88.50 for the unlined 6-inch models rising to £106.50 for the Dintex-lined 8-inch model; sizes run from UK6 to UK13, and models are available in either black or tan; following their release I’ve requested a pair from www.military1st.co.uk so I can give you the full lowdown at a later date!
