Chainsaw work is never a safe task and with it comes the responsibility of ensuring your safety from any harm. When you’re in forestry, you’ll be working with your hands most of the time but you’ll be needing your feet for stability. Without stability, you are prone to accidents, cuts, and even falling. Something you want to avoid as much as possible when you’re on duty. What comes to the rescue is the HAIX® Protector Prime which is a boot designed to give you long lasting comfort while providing you with the protection you need.
Comfort, Safety and Added Visibility
It’s an understanding that the more protective a pair of chainsaw boots is, the bulkier and uncomfortable it can be. Not with the HAIX® Protector Prime Orange. These HAIX® chainsaw boots are as comfortable as can be so you can use it no matter what season or time of day. And with its bright orange hue, visibility is not a problem. Working at night and being effective with your chainsaw is still made possible thanks to these boots. It also features European Class 2 (24m/s) cut protection. Something you want to ensure when you’re working with dangerous heavy tools like chainsaws!
European Cut Protection with Secura Liner® and Two Zone Lacing
European leather craftsmanship is evident when looking at these boots in person. The inner lining of these HAIX® chainsaw boots is secured by Secura Liner® which means that this footwear won’t pull out or wrinkle over time. The added bonus of the two zone lacing makes it easy for you to put on your waterproof HAIX footwear without any fuss. You can adjust the lacing accordingly so it fits your foot snugly and the lace won’t loosen up even after hours of tension.
Vibram Soles with Ankle Protection
The HAIX Protector Prime makes for the perfect forestry boot for its unbeatable ankle support and protection which helps to prevent injuries. The last thing you want to have is an accident that prevents you from reporting for duty. The sturdy and protective Vibram hiking sole provides long lasting durability and is grip and slip resistant so you remain stable even on the toughest terrain.
HAIX® Climate System with GORE-TEX® Inner Liner
The built in climate system of the HAIX Protector Prime keeps your feet at a balanced temperature at all times whether it’s hot or cold. It keeps your feet warm during cold seasons and cool during hot seasons. The vent holes on top of the forestry boot allows air to circulate inside so the temperature inside is always regulated. And with the 4-layer GORE-TEX® inner liner, your shoes are made to be waterproof, and breathable. Now that’s a boot you can rely on all year!
Rubber Toe and Heel Protection and Quick Drying Capabilities
The HAIX® Protector Prime Orange is protected by an anatomically formed steel protective toe cap certified to ASTM for toe protection. Additional rubber bumpers at the heel and toe area provides an extra layer of protection allowing for a prolonged service life. And because it’s unavoidable not to get hot and sweaty after a long day on a job site, you’ll need to refresh the moisture absorbing insoles every now and then. No need to worry about wearing temporary replacement boots on your next shift. The machine washable and quick drying insole ensures that you have a ready pair of boots to wear the next day.

Over all the bolts are very comfortable. I’m happy with the protection of they give my feet and how well the grip in the tree. They work with my spikes great. I’m disappointed in a few things about the boots. The sizing is a little frustrating. I had to downsize almost 2 full shoe sizes to get in a pair that fit properly. Thankfully the staff is very helpfully and contact between the staff and myself was fast. I have had the boots for just under a month and have worn them for work maybe 10 days total so far. Already I have had a lace loop break and the waterproofing is junk. They are supposed to be gortex so I’m a little confused why in only a few hours of working in snow my toes are getting wet along with the entire toe cap area. It’s frustrating paying $300+ dollars for these boots to have wet feet and broken parts with in a few days of use.
We appreciate you taking the time to review the Protector Ultra. We are happy to hear that you like the comfort of these boots and that our Customer Service Dept. was able to help you find the correct size. We apologize that the waterproof feature is not up to your satisfaction and that you had a lace loop break in such a short amount of time. I believe this would be a warranty issue. Please contact our Customer Service Dept. at 866-344-4249 to see how we can rectify this situation. Thanks again for reaching out. We certainly hope this will not deter you from considering HAIX again in the future!
Out of the box you know it's a heavy duty shoe. They make me think of space boots. Great visuals, good comfort. I read a review saying you should order a size smaller then what you need. I did and it worked out. One funny thing I noticed was the left shoe and right shoe front pad. The piece with the shoe serial. They were different shades of green. One looked older and worn vs the other smooth and a brighter hue. Not to bothersome considering it's a work boot and going to get messed up after a week. I've owned Redwing, Redback, Timberland, and now Haix. I'd have to rate these at the top of the bunch. But for the price it should come with a pair of socks or free shipping. I might consider more Haix in the future if I can catch discount deals.
We appreciate you taking the time to review the Protector Ultra. We are happy to hear that you like the style and comfort of this heavy duty boot. These boots do run about a half-size larger than a normal boot so we are happy that these worked out for you. We apologize that the coloring was a little off. Not sure the reason for this but as you said, they are work boots that will get messed up on the job. As far as discounts, we do run specials with free socks, free shipping and a % off throughout the year so keep checking back. Thank you for considering HAIX! Stay safe out there!
These are very comfortable boots considering that I wear them for 12+ hours during work days. I also have the protector prime boots which are equally as comfortable. I had a problem with my ultras as one of the lace hooks broke but I talked to customer service and they took care of the problem right away with a new pair of boots. Kudos to their customer service (Lynn) I was very impressed with everything. I highly recommend these boots for logging as well as other activities.
We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback on the Protector Ultra. We are happy to hear that these boots are comfortable even on long work days. We pride ourselves on top-notch customer service and we are glad they were able to help you with your issue in a timely manner. Thank you for your recommendation. We hope these boots continue to serve you well!
