Last year at Shot Show we were impressed by the light weight Danner Melee
. This year, we're impressed yet again by the even lighter weight Danner Tachyon
. At only 26 oz, this is Danner's lightest weight boot ever, built with small missions in mind to reduce the overall weight without sacrificing much durability.
We had a chance to look at the Tachyon and Tim even tried a pair on. Boots like these can be perfect for Airsoft operations, given that we're typically only active for 4 to 6 hours at a time. Still, we sprint a lot from cover to cover and heavy boots can really cut into our ability to maneuver quickly. It's great to see more options for light weight boots entering the market. The Tachyon is available now in tan, black, and sage green. We were impressed by how quickly they laced up and how comfortable the fit was.
These retail for right around $140. See our video below for more information.Additional Photos:
