The ultimate offshore boot. The HPX Ocean Boot is full height. waterproof, and breathable. It features a bonded OutDry® waterproof internal membrane and a unique, integral, waterproof gaiter for outstanding foul weather protection.
A truly unique boot — built for the realities of offshore sailing. When the waves are rolling across the deck, this boot will keep you comfortable and DRY.
Here's how it works:
Roll the stretchable fabric gaiter down to the bottom of the boot.
Pull up your foul weather pant leg, and slide your foot into the boot. Then pull down your foul weather pant over the outside of the boot and secure the ankle closure. Now pull the integral gaiter up over the outside of your foul weather pant. Cinch the heavy duty draw cord at the top of the gaiter, and you're all set.
At this point, the only way for water to get into the boot would be if it got past the drawstring seal, went all the way down the gaiter, got inside your foul weather pant leg, and up then over the top of the boot. Not very likely.
BUT, just in case, the clever folks at Musto incorporated a high flow, mesh drain at the bottom/rear of the gaiter to allow any water that did sneak in to drain out before it could get under your foul weather pant leg. A pretty impressive, yet very simple to use system.
