Danner Resurgent 8″ Hot Weather Boots Review

The Danner Resurgent 8 inch hot weather boot is now out on the open market and ready for testing.

I have always admired the Danner products going back to my days in the Navy and I was issued my first pair. The new Resurgent is a purpose-built boot to help you on stay fresh during long hours of patrol. I think that this is a good looking stylish boot with a durable water repellant (DWR) -coated rough-out leather upper with Perspair material. The panels that promote airflow to keep you cool and comfortable in hot and arid environments.

These lightweight tactical boots feature a Opanka-stitched Vibram. The Resurgent outsole with turf-eating pentagonal lugs that provide unbeatable grip on loose or rocky terrain. Rugged and ready for action, these coyote brown Air Force and Army boots are approved for wear with OCP Uniforms.


This boot is AR 670-1 Compliant for US Army Wear w/ MultiCam and OCP. It is also AFI 36-2903 Compliant for US Air Force Wear w/ OCP. These are handcrafted using Opanka-stitch construction. They are very functional in that they are lightweight and breathable yet built to resist abrasion and are Slip-resistant.

Question: What is a good way to protect your toes and feet from getting blisters during hiking?

Put this on your toes and feet and add a good pair of socks and you will be good to go.

We know guys who have used this cream and gone through GORUCK and Spartan Races with no blisters at all.

You can pick up a tube or Trail Toes for about $13 and this is cheap insurance to protect your feet. My buddy got blisters on his toes and I let him borrow a little bit. I bailed him out and he bought me beers later so it was a good deal for both of us.

I like the Danner brand and have always admired the construction of the boot. These have a very quick break-In period, Great for office and field Use. I would rank this Top Level Combat Boot excels in all metrics.

If you like the Danner Tachyon and Tanicus boots you will like the Resurgent. These boots are ideal in arid climates where comfort is needed more than traction.


You can find these boots at Galls.com, USPatriot.com, and Danner.com. I was not able to find these boots on Amazon.


DWR stands for “durable water repellent” – which is a thin layer of liquid applied to the outside of technical garments. It is used to repel primarily water, but can also withstand dirt and grease. You can tell the difference between a rain jacket treated with DWR versus one that is not. You can watch the rain drops slide right off of a jacket treated with DWR. The jacket without will get soaked through with water. This is what you dont want. I treat all of my jackets and boots with a DWR repellenat.
