Developed by 3M, Thinsulate is made of unique microfibers which imprison the air and reflects body heat twice as much as all other insulating fibers of comparable thickness. Moreover, because Thinsulate absorbs less than 1% of its weight in water, it preserves its insulating qualities even in moisture.

The H2O Seal process, exclusive to Regence, includes high quality waterproof material with sealed seams. This process provides a superior overall efficiency factor against water infiltration and the harmful effects of salt. It also makes routine care quick and easy.

Breathable and highly abrasion resistant 100% polyamide lining. Comfortable, it absorbs moisture and keeps the foot dry.

Breathable waterproof membrane, molded in the shape of a tight interior liner, Sympatex prevents water from penetrating, while evacuating perspiration towards the outside, thus avoiding any discomfort.

Waterproof membrane designed as a felt liner.

Waterproof and breathable membrane designed as a felt liner. (MVT 15 mg/cm 2). MVT is water vapor permeability of clothes, based on ISO 20345.

Lining made of fibres bringing comfort, absorption and increased abrasion resistance.

CHEMTECH is an advanced synthetic material that brings together the comfort and feel of leather, with advance waterproofing and chemical resistant properties. This material will resist to dairy products, animal fat, blood and most chemical products. It is 3 to 4 times more durable than leather.

Acton Natural Rubber

The natural rubber used to manufacture Acton® boots is extracted from a tree called the Hevea. The tree trunk is tapped to collect the «sap», also called «latex».

The superior quality natural rubber we use offers the best thermal protection and the safest grip on ice. Its exceptional properties: flexible in the cold, adherence, stable, durable, comfortable, 100% waterproof and preserving heat even in very cold weather are just a few of the many advantages of the 100% natural rubber bottom made by Acton®.

  • Resistant to extreme temperatures.
  • Very flexible, even in cold temperatures, and highly elastic.products.
  • Highly resistant to solvents and chemical
  • Non conductive of heat and cold 
  • Highly wear resistant.
  • Highly durable and stable.
  • 100% waterproof.
  • Natural material creating less condensation.
