GORE-TEX® Guarantee for water-proof and breathability
Bestard is the Spanish brand which has been using Gore-Tex-lining in mountain boots the longest. Thanks to our close relationship with W.L. Gore during these last 20 years, we have managed to manufacture boots with a unique combination of being durably water-proof on one hand, and efficient in expelling the humidity created inside the boot on the other.

Due to the possibilities arising from the use of different functional layers of the lining, there are different Gore-Tex linings with different performances available. All of them, however, are waterproof and breathable.
In this particular boot we use a version with the following characteristics:
