AT34000 Kayo - Charcoal
We like a challenge at Arbortec - we wanted to produce a boot unlike any other. A boot that will combine everything an arborist needs in one efficient package.
The KAYO climbing chainsaw boots are a new generation of technical chainsaw boots designed to be the perfect footwear suitable for work in the climbing industry.
The key features of this boot are its shape and height. The low-cut style includes a chainsaw-protected gator and tongue, tailored perfectly for the professional chainsaw user.
The upper body of the boot is handcrafted using premium leathers, laminated with chainsaw protective materials and a waterproof membrane. Our signature BreatheDry system ensures the boots are waterproof and highly breathable making the working day more comfortable. To enhance durability, the Kayo has a rubber randing wrapped around the lower half of the boot.
The unique lacing system and secure inner sock give the user a snug and comfortable fit for a wide or narrow foot. It will also prevent any detritus from entering the boot.
The Vibram rubber lug sole ensures you will be sure-footed in all conditions.
- Low cut, slim design boot
- Class 2 chainsaw protection
- Lightweight: 1.1kg per boot
- Vibram sole
- Loop for the SRT climbing system
The KAYO complies with EN ISO 17249 Class 2 standard
The first make of chainsaw boots that I love as they are comfortable and durable
I have large feet and the problem I find when buying boots is that they're designed and shown in around a size 9. They look good at that size. That's why I ordered them. However, once scaled up to fit my flippers they loose their aesthetic and more Importantly, the functionality and comfort they would have had in a smaller size. They didn't bend or flex like I was hoping they would. Not having hooks for the laces on the upper part of the boot made it VERY difficult to tighten and loosen when putting on and taking them off. Overall I was very disappointed as I love the rest of the Arbortec gear.
Boots are pretty comfortable to wear on the ground but when climbing i have found them very irritating. The low cut design means trousers roll up over the tounge, ropes and branches then get caught in the tounge and leave the lower leg unprotected. Have also found the heel is too shallow for spikes to stay in place. The gator is so tight it makes getting boots on and off a very long awkward process and will eventually tear the stitching from forcing them onto your feet, i have also broken the lining in the gator from trying to get them on now making them very uncomfortable. The soles have lasted about 3 months before they have worn away to nothing and started peeling. If you only want these boots to stand around on the ground they will do but for working and climbing i wouldn't bother.
very comfy.good for tree climbing work.
Bought these boots for when I teach a couple days a week and had been wearing non protective boots the rest of the time as I only ever climb on site.
As soon as I put the Kayos on I was impressed. I so wanted to not like them so I could keep wearing my other boots that I love so much but the Kayos are now my go to boots for everything.
I've had mine for about 7 months and I have zero complaints, still in fantastic condition but I'm going to have to buy a spare pair because if anything happens to these I'll be incredibly upset
