Our combat boots were independently tested by the Royal Military College of Science ("RMCS") in the United Kingdom against certain common types of anti-personnel landmine of different explosive charge sizes.The test was conducted under strict conditions against what we believe to be two of the most likely scenarios. Firstly, stepping on an anti-personnel landmine at the heel and secondly,at the ball of the foot. Our test results show that our boots can provide substantial protection against anti-personnel landmines. These tests were not uniformly successful against all anti-personnel landmine types tested, but they did show that our boots can provide substantial protection against high velocity fragments, debris and hot gas streams created during blasts from particular common types of anti-personnel landmines at certain explosive charges.
Even where substantial protection is provided, injury will occur but may be mitigated such that the wearer may still suffer broken bones and other collateral damage but the integrity of the limb might be maintained and thus could prevent permanent disabilities,possibly sparing the wearer the agony and trauma of amputation and the associated costs of rehabilitation and after-care.However,anti-personnel landmines are deadly weapons and we cannot and do not claim that the results of exposure to anti-personnel landmines will always be mitigated in a significant way by use of our boot.Also,there is no way of knowing what type of anti-personnel landmine an infantryman might be exposed to. No two anti-personnel landmines have the same destructive characteristics. To the best of our knowledge, there is no internationally accepted standard test for testing our boots and we do not claim that our boots are 100% anti-personnel landmine-proof.
