Last year, we tested out another option by Hanwag called the Anvik GTX and it massively impressed us with its durability, warmth and comfort. With this, the Anros ES, we think it’s safe to say all of those same qualities are there, but it can boast a few extra things as well.
“With Eco-Shell, you won’t find any of those nasty PFCs…”
With its specially designed sole and warm lining, this is a boot that’s made for winter walking. By this, we don’t mean you’d wear it over blizzard-beaten mountains, but rather on low-level hikes in the cold and on snowy or ice-coated tracks.
The inner lining is actually made from a 100 per cent recycled nylon, and that’s not the only credential in regards to sustainability…
The waterproof lining is made from Eco-Shell, a clever membrane that’s based on the same technology that Fjällräven use for their mountaineering jackets.
Most standard waterproof linings over the last few years have used PFCs as a necessary ingredient in their durable water repellent coating and in recent years these have been proven to be harmful to the environment. Active scientific studies are also exploring whether these could be harmful to the human body. With Eco-Shell, you won’t find any of these nasty PFCs but you’ll still get the same waterproof performance. We like that.
