Danner and Orvis Collaborate on New Orvis Danner Light II
OutdoorHub Reporters 08.25.18
Known for durability and versatility, Danner boots and Orvis have been trusted by generations of hunters, hikers and explorers around the globe. For the first time, both brands have come together to develop a special-edition, USA-made boot for the modern outdoorsman – the Orvis Danner Light II.
The proven design has been updated with durable Cordura® side panels in traditional Orvis green, and the premium, waterproof full-grain leather upper sports both Orvis and Danner logos on the tongue.
The Orvis Danner Light II also features a Vibram® Sierra outsole with Megagrip, providing the ultimate traction for all terrain and conditions, ideal for chasing down pheasant and locating that perfect fishing spot.
The GORE-TEX® lining is 100% waterproof and breathable, adding even more functionality to an already extremely adaptable boot.
“Our 160-year old passion for the outdoors is rooted in our expertise and love for bird hunting, says Charley Perkins, Hunting Product Developer at Orvis. “We constantly look at ways to make this experience better for our customers through product innovation. We can’t think of a better partner than Danner for such a versatile and technically sound boot, born from long days in the field and on the trail. We are exceptionally proud of this product and partnership.”
Made in Danner’s Portland, Ore. factory, the boot features legendary Danner stitchdown construction and is crafted to provide a wider platform with increased stability. Plus, these boots have the ability to be refurbished at Danner’s recrafting center after years of wear. Recrafting packages include resoling, new lining, and hardware or heel counter replacements.
“Danner and Orvis share a rich heritage in the outdoors and hunting,” says Chris Currah, Product Line Manager for Danner Hunt. “For this collaboration, we started out with a timetested Danner boot and incorporated performance features such as Megagrip in the outsole. The result is the ultimate boot for the next generation of outdoorsmen.”
