Chill Master boot from Equitector
equiworld.net team were happy to be asked to review the Chill
Master boot from Equitector. The boot was tested over the
period of one year giving us the chance to test it in all
conditions from ankle deep mud and snow to summer heat.
The Chill Master boot features a unique heat reflective
lining membrane which traps heat inside the boot and keeps
feet at body temperature irrespective of the weather conditions.
The boots manufacturers state that this system is effective
at temperatures down to -25 degrees - our tester did not
encounter such severe temperatures, but given the performance
of the boot we are happy to take their word for it. This
system also works in reverse to keep feet cool in warmer
We can attest to the fact that it works! The Chill Master
boot effectively keeps feet warm in winter and cool in summer.
The sturdy sole also provides good grip on slippery and
next revelation provided by the Chill Master boot came when
our tester (who since childhood has gripped up with the
right knee causing a tendency to lose her right stirrup,
particularly in the middle of a jumping course!) noticed
that she had not lost a stirrup since riding in the boots!
A browse through the literature provided the answer: Equitector
boots are fitted with the unique "Easy Rider"
Balance System which keeps the foot in alignment with the
stirrup and effectively helps prevent the loss of stirrups..
boots are sturdy enough to stand up to work in the stable,
great to ride in and smart enough to wear at a competition
in combination with half chaps or gaiters. They also incorporate
a protective steel toe cap, but are so well designed that
the toecap is not prominent and the style of the boot is
tester does stable work, rides at least two horses each
day and tackles muddy field gateways throughout the winter
months and feels that few boots could perform as well in
all these areas..
It has to be said that not every boot could cope with the
abuse (shown below and left) that we inflicted on the Chill
Master on a daily basis! A quick clean after the day's work
is done produces the boot in the condition shown in the
photo below on the right - one would never guess at the
state it was in minutes earlier!
after a day's work .......
after a clean up
are pleased to be able to say that the pair of boots we
tested are still going strong after a year of very hard
