    Buy a pair you won't be disappointed, great value!

    I would highly recommend these boots the quality is brilliant and so comfy, I have purchased the men's and women's! Before I bought them I read the reviews and one lady mentioned the sizing being a bit small so I took her advice and went a size and a half up from what we normally are and they all fit great, will be recommending to friends and family *****

Footwear waterproofing test.
Tested both in the lab and real-world usage, NOVADRY®-equipped footwear guarantees optimum waterproofing and breathability. First, the shoe is immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Next, shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
Shoe waterproofing level.
Arpenaz 50 Warm Waterproof boots are waterproof for 8000 flexes.
Field tests.
All our shoes undergo comfort and use tests carried out by users who are representative of our target market, in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.
Lab tests.
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: attachment of eyelets and webbing, assembly, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, accelerated ageing.
3 levels of waterproofing.
In the waterproofing tests, we test 3 levels of waterproofing, with 2,000 flexes (approx. a 4 km walk), 4000 flexes (approx. an 8 Km walk) and 8000 flexes (approx. a 16 Km walk). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
Level of waterproofing of the boot.
Arpenaz 50 Warm Waterproof boots are waterproof for 8000 flexes.
SNOWCONTACT technology.
SNOWCONTACT soles are made using a special component. Designs are optimised to provide excellent all-terrain grip and maximal traction all winter long. SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow.
Measurement of the boots' thermal insulation.
Before, you didn’t know the precision of the temperature your boots were protecting. Now it can be done: the temperature limits for use are shown on your Quechua boots. We worked with a panel of customers to measure the thermal resistance of our shoes, during activity and at rest, using cold sensing tests, both in the field and the lab. We take into account the differences in sensing cold between men and women.
