Forma Launches New Adventure Boot With HDry Waterproof Tech

Forma's popular adventure boot gets more protection from extreme weather.

Published on 05.26.2020

Italian boot maker Forma has just released an all-new version of it’s popular Adventure Boot, now featuring more protection from extreme weather conditions. The new ‘Adventure HDry’ Boots incorporate direct lamination waterproof technology. Originally called OutDry, the waterproof technology has been significantly improved and renamed HDry. Now Forma is the first manufacturer to produce motorcycle boots using the new technology.

The patented HDry construction process directly bonds a waterproof membrane to the outer leather, eliminating the intermediate gap typically found between the outer and inner layer in traditional WP boots. With no gaps between the membrane and outer leather, the boot does not get soaked and heavy with water. This ensures water stays out of the boot while at the same time, the material is porous enough to let smaller sweat and vapor particles out of the boot for improved breathability.

Along with the upgrade in waterproofing, the Forma Adventure HDry Boots offer comfort and convenience with a 3-buckle design and Velcro top closure. There’s also an aggressive hiking sole that makes it easier to walk in slippery terrain or pick up your bike in the mud. The tall boot design also includes an injection-molded shin plate and ankle reinforcements that give it enough impact protection for light off-roading. Plus with its full-grain oiled leather construction and alloy buckles, Adventure HDry Boots are designed to handle the abuses of adventure riding.

I do like my Forma Adventure boots. Haven’t had a problem with wet feet in 3 years of use. The new ones are about $100 more than what I paid for the old ones.
