(军品志2014年4月29日消息)在过去长达40年的时间里,美国陆军一直在使用以越战经验研发的牛皮丛林靴。如今随着战术装备材料的进步,以及作战环境的改变,美国陆军终于要换掉这些历久弥坚的大头靴了。

美陆军计划更换丛林靴

根据设立在夏威夷的丛林作战学校反馈,陆军早在今年初便曾考虑过更换丛林靴。但直到如今,美国陆军才终于公布了对新丛林靴的招标要求:

1.必须能够在丛林环境下足够使用12个月。

2.必须拥有速干和透气能力,以使进水和汗水能够迅速排出。

3.必须具有排水孔。

4.重量不得超过两磅。

5.能够增强在泥地中行走体验的高后跟。

6.表面材料必须能够抵御地面杂物的划伤。

7.外底必须在泥地环境下保持足够的抓地力和舒适性。

8.紧急情况下必须能够迅速拆解。

目前关于竞标厂商和竞标截止日期还没有任何消息。但看来,美国人换掉现有丛林靴已是板上钉钉了。

补原文:http://www.army.mil/article/1218 ... amouflage_patterns/ As the Army pivots to the Pacific region, it is looking to develop a new jungle boot. Testing of some vendor-supplied prototypes could begin this summer, Mortlock said. A good jungle boot, he explained, would shed water, meaning it can dry out fast after submersion. It also would be lightweight and breathable to minimize the effects of high temperatures and humidity. The lugs (tread) on the outsole would also be able to trek through mud with minimal slipping. Also, the leather should not dry out and crack from repeated wetting cycles. The most important factor in the development of the jungle boot -- or any new boot for that matter -- he said, is Soldier feedback from real-use, rigorous testing. "We do this rigorous user testing because we want Soldiers to trust and have confidence in their equipment so they can focus on their primary mission. And we've built up that trust over a number of years," he added. One of the biggest recent improvements in boot design is "direct-attach outsoles," Mortlock explained that soles that are glued, not stitched, to the bottoms of boots, make some pairs of Army Combat Boots up to 1 pound lighter. The direct-attach outsoles are also less apt to separate after long, rough usage. But equally importantly, he said, direct-attach outsoles have reduced lower leg injuries to Soldiers because they reduce the shock transferred to the foot and leg. The adoption of "universal sizing" is also important. Until the Army adopted universal sizing, a Soldier wearing size 10.5 boots and who ordered another pair of the same size from another vendor might find the new boots somewhat smaller or bigger than the boots being replaced. This is because commercial vendors use different molds, or "lasts" for building their footwear. The Army now requires that a universal "last" or mold, be used by all of its boot vendors to ensure that Army-issue boots have universal sizing. This will reduce the logistics trail and save time for Soldiers and their units, Mortlock added. Another criteria, that doesn't really relate to safety and comfort, is that any boot that's produced for Soldiers and issued by the Army has to be made entirely in the U.S. out of U.S.-manufactured textiles and materials, per the Berry Amendment, which was originally passed by Congress in 1941, and codified into law as 10 USC 2533a. Soldiers are authorized to wear boots of their choosing, even if they are not Berry Amendment compliant, as long as these boots conform to Army Regulation 670-1 "Uniform Appearance Regulation." Soldiers are authorized to use their clothing replacement allowance for these. Master Sgt. Benjamin Owens, a 20-year Army veteran who was interviewed along with Mortlock, said that even though many Soldiers opt to buy their own footwear, in his opinion, the best boots are standard issue. "As a drill sergeant, I've foot marched hundreds of miles in different terrains in these," he said, pointing to the standard-issue boots he was wearing. "Younger Soldiers sometimes go for a flashy look in a boot," he said, adding that they often pay a price for doing so. Adding to Owens' comment, Mortlock said, "Any time you choose a different boot, you're trading off something: durability or breathability, or something else." When a Soldier first joins the Army, they're issued two types of standard Army Combat Boots, the hot weather and temperate weather variants. Soldiers later receive an annual clothing replacement allowance for boots. Other specialized boots are issued for specific mission requirements. Soldiers deploying to Afghanistan are issued mountain combat boots, tailored for rough, mountainous terrain found in the eastern part of that country. That too comes in a hot-weather and temperate weather variant. Aviators and vehicle combat crewmen are issued flame-resistant boots that fit their mission. There are also intermediate cold/wet-weather boots and extreme cold-weather boots. Specialized boots are not part of the Soldier's annual clothing replacement allowance, so Soldiers are simply issued new ones when their old boots wear out. 要求够严的。。看来比较看好rocky的样本
也是,rocky的s2v以前就很受在湿地作战和训练的SWCC的喜欢
