Our multi-layer inner boot system creates a warm boot because body moisture is wicked away. A Hydromax II layer, similar to the materials used in babies' diapers, combined with a B-Tek four channel hollow fibre layer acts as a moisture control system keeping the foam dry and funneling water vapour out of the boot as opposed to felt packs used in other boots that compress over time and retain water.
Baffin boots have a unique multi-layer inner boot system. Why multiple layers? Each of the layers contributes to different aspects of the boots performance. The thickest layer is insulating Polymech foam. It is open cell so it is compressible and provides the right level of cushioning. A vaporized aluminum membrane has a silver surface that reflects energy back towards the foot. On our boots that are rated for very low temperatures we use two of these membranes.
The Hydromax II layer is developed from the same material used in a baby's diaper, wicking moisture away from the skin. This is combined with a B-Tek 4-channel hollow fibre layer that acts as a moisture control system keeping the foam dry and funneling water vapor out of the boot.
Our multi-layer inner boot system creates a warm boot that can be used for extreme exertion because body moisture is wicked away and expelled from the boot, keeping the feet dry. Felt packs used by other boots become compressed over time, reducing the level of insulation and adding to a sloppy fit. Also they absorb water, which in low temperatures can freeze, making the footwear uncomfortable.
Thermaplush lining is a new material that makes wearing Baffin boots sensually delightful. We have upgraded the innermost layer of our inner boot system to Thermaplush. It is a chamois leather-like material that feels remarkably soft and smooth.
