Updated for 2019, the 5020 Extinguisher II WLF is Zamberlan's second iteration of Wildland Firefighting boot boasting important structural improvements over past designs. Designed from the ground-up to be NFPA compliant while also being built for the mountain and the rigors of today's Wildland Firefighter. The Extinguisher is remarkably lightweight, completely fire-resistant, and more comfortable than any other WLF boot on the market.
Improvements include double and triple stitching in key flex areas, additional suede leather over the ankles, the use of a new Kevlar-reinforced fire-resistant lace, and other important structural improvements to the uppers for added durability and longevity.
The 8" tall Extinguisher is designed to prevent sole delamination, the most common and serious problem for Wildland Firefighting boots. After seven years of R&D, Zamberlan, Welting stitch experts, designed the Extinguisher with a side-stitched outsole that cannot delaminate.
