Early on UA established itself as a leader in cold-weather hunting gear. Naturally, we were asked to turn our superior late season gear into a more workable weight for warmer months. Along with our early season gear, we designed a pair of early season hunting boots light enough for the trail, but with the superior protection and performance of heavier boots. When you need to stay on the move, hiking and hunting, you need an unrivaled balance of lightness and rugged construction. Mother Nature made hooves, so we made the Speed Freek.
