SnakeGuard  & ThornShield Puncture Protection

Berry Compliant – MADE IN THE USA

SnakeGuard or ThornShield are used as backer material for CORDURA® brand fabrics in boots to prevent penetration of waterproof booties or linings treated with Durable Water Repellency. Both products are breathable, have been approved for use with Gore-Tex® and can be supplied with EMTEXGLOBAL SplashCoat, our discontinuous, heat-activated adhesive system.
