Reebok and Gore have reinvented the hot weather boot
The Reebok KRIOS is the only tactical boot that keeps feet cool when it’s hot, dry when it’s wet, and comfortable when you sweat.
Whatever the mission brings, the KRIOS boot with revolutionary GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort Technology provides durable waterproof protection and unrivaled breathability to help you take on the challenge — and the climate.
New GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort Technology is highly breathable in hot weather, transferring heat and moisture out of the KRIOS boot for cool, comfortable feet.
In any climate, the KRIOS boot with GORE-TEX® fabric keeps feet dry. Whether you’re trekking through a rainfall or a rainforest, moisture stays out.
With a rugged nylon and leather outer shell, GORE-TEX® fabric, and MeraMAX® outsole with four times the abrasion resistance of rubber, every layer of the KRIOS is built to last.
The KRIOS is a lightweight boot strong enough for heavy duty. Fused protective layers reduce bulk, minimize absorption and dry quickly, preventing added weight in wet conditions.

The Berry Amendment
The Berry Amendment Restrictions for Clothing, Fabrics, Fibers, and Yarns
The Berry Amendment is a statutory requirement that restricts the Department of Defense (DoD) from using funds appropriated or otherwise available to DoD for procurement of food, clothing, fabrics, fibers, yarns, other made-up textiles, and hand or measuring tools that are not grown, reprocessed, reused, or produced in the United States. The Berry Amendment has been critical to maintaining the safety and security of our armed forces, by requiring covered items to be produced in the United States. With respect to textiles and clothing, the Berry Amendment has been critical to the viability of the textile and clothing production base in the United States.
Congress originally passed domestic source restrictions as part of the 1941 Fifth Supplemental DoD Appropriations Act in order to protect the domestic industry base in the time of war. The Berry Amendment has included in subsequent defense appropriations acts until it was made permanent in Fiscal Year 1994 by Sec. 8005 of Public Law 103-139. The Berry Amendment was subsequently codified in 2002 as 10 U.S.C. 2533a in Section 832 of Public Law 107-107.
This discussion of the Berry Amendment focuses exclusively on clothing, fabrics, fibers, yarns, and other made-up textile items as so described in section “Covered Items Under the Berry Amendment”.
