Bernina Chainsaw Boot
If you work with chainsaws either on the ground or half way up a tree and want the ultimate boot, we think you’ve found it! The Bernina Chainsaw Boot is perfectly designed for professional arborists and agricultural workers alike for long days out in the trees. These forestry boots are renowned for their high-quality materials and safety features including the 200J steel toecap. The Bernina Chainsaw Boot is designed for long lasting wear and ensures maximum comfort in the most extreme weather conditions.
Being situated in the foothills of the Dolomite mountains provides Diemme with an ideal testing ground for this superb pair of forestry boots. The Dolomites and Italian Alps are heavily wooded and until quite recently, were managed by the Italian State Forestry Corps. So, not only are the locals enjoying these mountainous forest regions for pleasure, but they also work there as well. In answer to the many demands of Diemme fans wanting the same performance and quality in their forestry boots as their walking boots, the Bernina was born.
If there is a single theme running through everything Diemme makes it’s no compromise. And this can be seen throughout the Bernina boot. Leather is tough but very soft bovine suede, specified at 3mm thick. Cushioning around the ankle is padded calf leather whilst a full Sympatex® waterproof/breathable membrane keeps the foot dry in any conditions. Soling is an antistatic version of the classic Vibram Teton, widely used on our country boots but this time modified to allow the use of climbing irons and crampons. Safety wise the Bernina sports a steel toecap rated at 200J, non-metallic penetration resistant midsole and aramid fibres providing chainsaw protection at Level 2 or 24m/s chainsaw speed. Bernina is approved to EN20345:2011 Safety Footwear standards with EN17249:2013 Chainsaw approval.
