Danner Powderhorn Sets New Standard In Backcountry Performance
Danner Bootmaking Expertise Shines in New Feature-Rich Hunting Boot
January 1, 2017, Portland, Ore. – Fall 2017 welcomes a new era of performance standards in backcountry hunting with the introduction of the Danner Powderhorn. With nearly 85 years of bootmaking expertise, the elite Danner Powderhorn highlights today’s leading technologies. With every new mile underfoot, the Powderhorn is engineered to thrive when premium performance is needed most.
Built to outshine the harshest elements and loaded with performance features, the Powderhorn offers a rugged full-grain leather upper and GORE-TEX® liner for ultimate waterproof protection. The tongue includes a mesh layer to better regulate temperature and airflow while wicking moisture away from the foot. Multi-density foam around the ankle area aids cushioning and support. The Bi-Fit™ integrated shank system improves firmness in the heel and allows for better flexibility in the forefoot. The Powderhorn features Danner’s iconic stitchdown construction for extra durability and stability in any terrain. In addition, the deep lugged Powderhorn outsole provides superior traction and adaptability no matter where the hunt leads.
“A backcountry hunter knows no limit and needs a pair of boots that are equally as reliable as they are feature rich,” says Chris Currah, Product Line Manager for Danner Hunt. “The Powderhorn is a force to be reckoned with and redefines a dependable off-grid hunting boot.”
The Powderhorn will feature a non-insulated model as well as 400G Thinsulate ™ Ultra Insulation and 1000G Thinsulate™ Ultra Insulation versions. The Powderhorn will be available at danner.com with an MSRP ranging from $239.95-$269.95.
