The Military Surplus Bata Extreme Cold Weather (ECW) Vapor Barrier Boot has been keeping soldiers' feet warm and dry in the harshest climates this planet has to offer. Designed to be worn over a single wool sock, the VB or "Mickey Mouse" boots are generously sized and can accommodate a wide range of foot sizes.
These ECW boots are made by Bata and are known for being the highest quality vapor barrier boots available. They are surplus stock in new condition. The boots are called "vapor barrier" due to their non-permeable construction. Thick insulation is sandwiched between two layers of rubber, which means that these boots will always keep your feet warm. You could fill them with snow then shake them out and your feet would soon melt the leftover snow and your foot would be wet, but warm. The same goes for strenuous activity when wearing these boots; your feet will sweat and wet your sock, but your feet will not get cold and sweat can't damage the insulation since it is sandwiched between two layers of rubber. These boots are rated effective to temperatures of -20 degrees and are perfect for ice fishing, snowmobiling, sitting in a blind or tree stand in frigid weather.
Note: All boots are D (Regular) width.
