Designed For the Fast Roping Specialist in rugged desert environments
Designed together with Parachuting Special Forces, the Pilgrim TSC DS is very light weight and breathable, specifically suitable for hot and desert climates. The malleolus is protected on both sides by an integrated layer of Poron® Performance Material. Poron® is a dual action solution to help alleviate the amount of damaging shockwaves caused by strenuous activities and to absorb lateral impact. Other features are an anti nail penetration insert in the insole, antistatic construction, and antistatic nitrile sole. Designed with features to meet the needs of demanding fast ropers. The internal side of the shoe has been reinforced and treated to withstand rope friction, a higher density EVA insert has been placed in the midsole to resist the heat generated by rope friction.

Comfortable boots, colour as shown not even close to reality! Other people who’ve said they are more like coyote with a slight hint of green are way off, these are straight up green. Won’t be able to get away with wearing them in uniform.
I wish AKU made a non gortex Pilgrim that was only brown/coyote.
This is all the footwear I heard it was loving it. All the ankle support and traction in such a light boot is amazing. You can wear them loose for comfort off task.
Excellent for hot weather: Could possibly fly under the AR670-1 radar with boots unbloused. Mostly keep these in the ruck as backup. Hiking with a 40lb ruck, these provided excellent traction, adequate ankle support and made the hike a breeze. While I could feel a couple of rocks underfoot, that was a fair trade for the weight of the boots. I went with my UK/EU(9.5/44) size instead my usual US 10.5D, which worked: YMMV.
