EVA StalkAIR™ midsole.
The Hunters Element Maverick Boot isn't just another cheap “stalking” boot. This lightweight boot was built from the forest floor up, one piece at a time, very deliberately.
The brand new ACTrek™ XTi LITE™ outsole is crazy aggressive. The sharp, deep, rubber teeth grab like talons when sidling wet, mulchy faces and provide impressive stopping power on slippery descents. Sitting between this and your foot is our tested StalkAIR™ midsole and footbed, light, soft and deadly quiet. The upper is cut from heavy-duty STEELskin™ Polyester Oxford fabric. This has been chosen over leather in this case because it retains almost no water and remains as light as possible in the long dewy grass and muddy game trails.
Packed with plenty of other key features, the Hunters Element Maverick Boot, truly is, perfect for silent deerstalking. The high cut gives excellent ankle support when exploring unstable terrain and the Hydrafuse™ REINsoc™ water-resistant lining keeps your feet dry and comfortable.
Hunters Element Boot Sizing
All sizes are US men's sizing.
Measure from the from the back of your heel to the end of your longest toe.
We recommend getting a size larger than your normal sneaker shoe size - the extra room will help avoid toe pain when sidling down steep terrain.
Partnership with Desolve® Camouflage
Hunters Element in New Zealand and Australia have partnered with Desolve® Camouflage and are bringing three new camouflage patterns to the market in a new range of hunting gear arriving over the coming months. Some of what is coming is a world first in hunting gear so it is time to get excited.
Continuing the success of Veil Camouflage, these new deception camouflage patterns suit browner terrain as well as a high visibility pattern and a specific waterfowl pattern designed for duck shooters.
Animal vision differs significantly from human vision yet the idea of concealing ourselves from the human eye has dominated the hunting camouflage market internationally. That is until now.
Challenging Perceptions - active deception replaces passive concealment
Common sense tells us that if we can’t see the hunter, the animal can’t either. Science challenges those perceptions and Desolve® Deception Camouflage has produced the evidence. A hunting camouflage system that works with its environment and the weaknesses in animal vision to take you out of the picture. This replaces our passive attempts to hide with the confidence of active concealment.
Reducing the range of engagement is in the front of every hunters mind, the challenge for any camouflage is concealing you effectively at any range. Patterns that mimic your surroundings depend on ideal conditions and a constant landscape. They work with the human eye, ultimately producing a false confidence. We are programmed to believe what we see but when it comes to hunting, it is more effective to believe what animals see. The rules have changed in your favour, game on.
