About POLAR A/P/S GTX 2016

An extremely comfortable and warm BC-boot with an integrated gaiter that is reinforced with Kevlar on exposed areas. The boot features a winter lining with GORE-TEX® and has been developed specifically for expeditions and long journeys on skis in extremely cold conditions. Polar A/P/S also has a specially developed last that ensures you have room for liner or wool inner boots and if necessary vapor barrier socks. It also has extra insulation within the sole and liner. The boot has been used on a wide range of expeditions, both to the North and South Poles, however, it is also suitable for simpler expeditions in cold conditions. Liners or wool inner boots and vapor barrier socks are purchased separately. We recommend buying the boot 2 sizes larger than normal for use during extreme conditions.

Certain snow/crust conditions are an extreme strain on the shoes materials, and with use under such conditions increased wear is expected.

  • GORE-TEX Insulated Comfort

    100% waterproof, durable and breathable with insulating properties for use in cold weather conditions. Water and snow is blocked, while sweat evaporates from the inside. The insulated lining retains warmth in low temperatures and ensures a dry, warm and comfortable climate for your feet.

  • EXP Gaiter (BC)

    Integrated gaiters made from durable Cordura. Provides extra insulation during extreme conditions and protects against snow. Extra reinforcement on the inside.

Sole Technologies

  • BC Sole

    Rottefella BC sole provides optimum stability, which contributes to good control in rough terrain and in variable snow conditions. The sole has good insulation properties.

  • Standard L-Board

    A moisture absorbing insole with insulating properties to keep your feet dry and warm.

  • Insulator Insole

    An anatomically designed insole made from insulating felt as well as breathable materials with good absorbency that keep your feet warm and dry. The sole has an antibacterial surface that helps prevent odors.

Fit & Support

  • Expedition Fit

    A specially developed fit that provides enough space for wool inner boots or two pairs of polar socks.

  • Combo Lacing System

    A lacing system that combines open and lockable hooks. Allows for individual adjustment of the ankle and forefoot.

Other Featues

  • Easy Entry Loops

    Easy entry loops make the boots easy to take on and off.

  • Internal Heel Counter

    Heel reinforcements made of plastic that provide better support. An ergonomic and stable heel cap locks the foot in the boot, anchors it to the midsole and reduces the risk of blisters.

  • Toe Protector

    A rubber-coated reinforcement that protects the boot from abrasion.

  • Snow Crust Protector

    Extra layers of full grain leather that protect the lower part of the boot, which is particularly prone to wear, especially in snow with an ice crust.

Size chart

Size chart

Place a paper close to the wall and with bare feet place the foot on the paper, with your heel to the wall. Since it is important to stand up straight, preferably have someone help you draw a line in front of the longest toe. Remember to measure both feet as they might not be identical. With a ruler, confirm the measurement in centimeters and add additional space according to the list below.
