Make way for Magnum's newest release - the Stealth Force 8.0 WPI Boot featuring new Ion Mask technology. Resulting from an MOD research project, Ion Mask is a technical process which enables waterproof polymers to infuse the shoes/boots on a sub-microscopic scale. This means that every single fibre of the material is given a layer of water repellent polymer only molecules thick, unlike conventional waterproof boots which just have an outer layer of waterproofing.
The entire boot undergoes this Ion Mask treatment so even the seams and laces become waterproof. This also has the advantage that the boot will gain less weight when used in wet conditions as the materials retail less water.
Ion Mask also helps to keep your boots clean. The treatment helps to repel dirt and stains just as it does water. It also repels oil, fuel and alcohol - triple resistant cover for truly life-saving protection.
In critical circumstances the transfer and contact of disease and infection can be potentially fatal. Complying with ISO16604 (the resistance of materials used in protective clothing) the Ion Mask treatment on these boots combats the penetration of pathogenic micro-organisms in human blood that cause disease and contamination.
And if you're concerned about Ion Mask's green credentials then be assured that only tiny amounts of chemicals are needed, with minimal waste, making the process highly efficient compared to traditional methods such as dip application technologies. Equally, the process is activated at room temperature and is a solvent-less process making it one of the most climate friendly footwear technologies available.

Great All Round Boots
I got these boots to use on a Farm where i look after horses and constantly going through mud water, and everything else you would find on a farm. They are amazingly warm but dont make your feet sweat. The waterproofing is amazing and best of all as the boot covers your ankle if i fall off a horse or trip up my ankle stays in one piece. Can honestly say these are the best boots ive ever worn well worth the money!
Pros: Great Support, Great Breathability , Great Water Proofing, Decent Price
Cons: none
Would recommend: Yes

Good waterproofing technology
I watched some vids on youtube about this wpi stuff and how they make it and was quite impressed, so i decided to get a pair. And i have to say they are very good, not one drop of moisture seems to get through and my feet don't seem to sweat in them either which means I remain bone dry. I highly recommend them.
Pros: Better than most waterproofing, Comfy, Feet breathe easy
Cons: none
Sizing: Feels large
Would recommend: Yes
