  • Boot question

    Does anyone know about the Denier Nylon rating in boots?? I have seen where some have 900, some over 1000-which is better for an all around summer/fall boot or is there much difference??

    All nylon fabrics have a "denier" rating. This refers to the thickness of a thread or yarn used in the fabric. Generally the higher the denier, the heavier and tougher the fabric.

    Some common nylon fabrics with these ratings are: ballistic, ripstop, cordura, canvas, solarweave, lycra, taslan, taffeta, and the list goes on and on.

    The nylon fabric in boots, usually cordura, is not used to rate insulating properties. Those qualities are left to other materials like Thinsulate. The nylon exterior fabric may have some sort of water proof coating on it. If the boot is rated as water proof you will find another material included like Gortex.
