Vaprtrek Hunting Boot
When you’re out hunting or hiking in those remote and natural environments that you love, one of your main concerns is potential snake bites and thorns. That means you have to think about not only protecting yourself from uneven, rocky terrain and slippery surfaces, but also preventing snake fangs and spines from reaching your legs. The Vaprtrek hunting boot from Irish Setter is specifically designed to help you do just that.
This boot incorporates SnakeGuard technology which blocks snake fangs, thorns and other elements that could endanger your feet and you. It’s 17 inches of snake bite protection prevents the fangs and other elements from reaching your legs as you walk in between rocks or in the grasses. With this boot, you can have peace of mind knowing that you’re fully protected against snakes and sharp objects that could penetrate and harm you. But this is not the only things it’s good at.
Balance and Agility
The Vaprtrek Boots are also designed to give you outstanding agility during your hunts. They come with a robust sole that delivers excellent traction, which combines with a lightweight construction, allowing you to retain your balance and agility. When wearing these boots, you can walk on any kind of surface without worrying about slipping and dislocating your ankle or breaking your leg.
Their lightweight construction is attributable to its specially crafted composite material, which also makes it very comfortable to wear. This synthetic material designed is used to make the boot’s sole and provides the same strength and durability as the traditional materials, but without the associated bulkiness and weight. Because of this, the Vaprtrek men’s hunting boots can give you the comfort and endurance that you seek to make your hunting expeditions a joy.
The Vaprtrek men’s hunting boot is not just meant to keep your feet protected, but it offers the ideal outdoor footwear to keep your legs dry. It comes with waterproof full-grain leather uppers, providing 17 inches of unmatched protection to keep your feet safe and dry at all times. The waterproof leather material, as you would expect, is breathable and this also contributes to its comfort. Through its unique UltraDry construction, which combines waterproof components and a moisture management lining, you can stay comfortable, dry and warm while out enjoying what you love – whether it’s hunting, fishing or hiking.
The fact that this Vaprtrek Boot also incorporates Irish Setter’s unique ScentBan technology makes it an above average hunting boot. This technology protects you against bacteria and odors. Because of the ScentBan on its materials, you can wear them even for several days without washing and you won’t get smelly feet!
The boot comes with a Speed lacing system that makes it easy to put on, and fit every time. This system also allows the booth to remain snug to your legs without putting any unnecessary pressure on the legs.
Placement of ArmaTec in high-wear areas helps preserve the boot while lengthening its lifespan.

Vaprtrek Men’s Hunting Boots Downsides – Things We Didn’t Like About This Boot
As with any product, the Vaptrek has some downsides of which we couldn’t conclude this review without sharing with you. Firstly, the sole consists of synthetic composite material so it’s not as tough and durable as you would want for your hunting boot. But this is the kind of boot you’re going to get at a great price range. After all, you tend to get what you pay for. So don’t expect the boot to last forever or to give you the bragging rights of having the toughest hunting boots out there.
Aside from this, some users have reported finding the material to be not entirely waterproof. That means navigating water puddles will leave your feet damp – this obviously is not a good thing. The sole is also somehow poorly glued to the upper section, and this also compromises its durability. Also, some wearers found the boot a bit tight to get them on, but this also makes it very snug once you wear, which ultimately is a good thing.
All in all, the Irish Setter Vaprtrek hunting boot is a relatively robust and well-constructed boot that is also reasonably priced. You can’t get a better quality hunting boot at such low prices! Its 17-inch height offers a large area of protection and makes it a perfect option for environments with long grass and bush. If you’re looking for an affordable snake proof boot that is also comfortable and waterproof, then this is it right here.
