ion-mask™ goes back to it's military roots with MAGNUM
From law enforcement, military and fire/rescue to emergency medical agencies around the world, MAGNUM has been delivering high performance tactical footwear for more than 25 years.
Committed to creating footwear that delivers beyond the call of duty, MAGNUM recognized the groundbreaking hydrophobic protection offered by P2i’s ion-mask™ liquid repellent nano-coating. As well as helping police, paramedics and medical professionals keep their feet dry, cool and blister free in challenging conditions, the nanoscale characteristics of ion-mask™ also confer protection against the risk of contamination from the numerous blood-borne pathogens that might be experienced in the course of hazardous activities.
Furthermore, unlike membrane technologies, ion-mask™ is not a physical barrier, delivering the full natural airflow of the chosen shoe materials as well as reducing weight. As a result, ion-mask™ treated MAGNUM footwear is at least 30 grams lighter and, because ion-mask™ gives the whole shoe (even the stitching) superior water repellency, it will not retain water in wet conditions.
