MTE

We’ve spent a lifetime outdoors. Creating all over the planet. From the mountains to the seas, the outdoors has always been our canvas. VANS MTE was made to keep you outside and exploring no matter the weather. Built on three key principles of moisture management, thermoregulation, and added traction to handle the elements. VANS MTE will take you to places you never expected.

MTE-1 WATER RESISTANT PACKAGE

The MTE-1 water resistant package is built to keep you dry in most conditions. A zonal layering of watertight membranes keeps high-soak area’s from leaking in so wet socks don’t ruin your day.

PRIMALOFT® COLD WEATHER THERMAL PACKAGE

PrimaLoft has been in the advanced materials technology solution game since 1983. Originally developed for the U.S. Army, their high-quality microfiber thermal insulation systems mimic the warmth-providing properties of down, and have become synonymous with cold weather comfort. PrimaLoft fabric has millions of air pockets that actually trap and preserve body heat, and also contain fibers that are treated so that they don’t retain water.

GORE-TEX WATERPROOF PACKAGE

GORE-TEX has been an innovator and industry leader in high-performance waterproof-breathable technology since 1969. Each square inch of a GORE-TEX membrane has nine billion pores—and every of those tiny holes is 20,000 times smaller than a single droplet of water. Each one of those billions of pores is also 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule, which is the key to breathability and allowing internal moisture to escape as body heat and temperature rise. Simply put, rain and snow cannot get in and the GORE-TEX “GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY” promise is trusted in any condition.

3M THINSULATE COLD WEATHER THERMAL PACKAGE

3M Thinsulate Insulation is warm, lightweight, powerful, and thin. The extremely fine microfibers in Thinsulate Insulation help to trap air and block body radiant heat loss, making for an incredibly efficient insulation while still allowing inter-nal moisture to escape. A high warmth-to-thickness ratio also enables reduced bulk and advanced freedom of movement. In other words, Thinsulate material traps more air in less space, giving your foot more room to breathe.

MTE

ALL-TRAC OUTSOLE

All-Trac is a formula-based proprietary rubber compound developed by Vans for MTE footwear. Its patent pending recipe delivers true all-terrain grip, significantly aiding in overall traction and upgrading all MTE-2 and MTE-3 styles. This specialized all-season formula is further optimized with increased flexibility which allows lugs to bend with terrain changes, creating more surface area and better variable adaptability. From wet or dry city streets, to the unpredictably of the un-paved, All-Trac delivers a new level of adventure-based opportunity all year long.
