RED WING, MN (December 2013) — New for Fall 2014, Irish Setter Rutmaster RPM knee boots are 50% lighter than traditional Irish Setter rubber boots. Their seamless design makes them waterproof and durable. RPM Technology is a breakthrough composite material that significantly reduces the weight of the boot for extreme comfort and added durability. The one-piece upper and sole also incorporates RPM material under foot for cushioning. Rutmaster RPM boots feature Irish Setter’s proven ExoFlex™ Performance Fit System for improved fit and easy on/off convenience. An Airmesh lining wicks moisture and allows air flow, while ScentBan™ eliminates foot and other odors. The Mud Claw RPM sole’s tread design offers an aggressive lug pattern for superb stability and traction, facilitating the release of mud and dirt.

  • Style # 4893 is a 17” pull-on knee boot in Realtree Xtra®camo, $174.99
  • Style #4895 is a 17” pull-on knee boot with 400 grams of Thinsulate® Ultra insulation in Mossy Oak® Break-Up Infinity® camo, $184.99

The original Rutmaster line became popular with hunters because of its revolutionary secure, comfortable fit provided by the patent-pending ExoFlex™ Performance Fit System. The ExoFlex™ panel in the back of the boot shaft expands to accommodate the back of the foot for easy entry. Then the panel contracts for a lock-tight, high-performance fit in an easy on/off waterproof, scentproof boot. All Irish Setter Rutmaster 17” knee boots feature a slim, comfortable profile. Rutmaster RPM boots are available in whole sizes from Men’s 8-14.

New Rutmaster RPM boots will be available in July 2014 at leading outdoor retailers. Visit for the retailer nearest you.
