Product feature
  1. The concept of thermal insulation using neoprene:
    By trapping a thin layer of water around the feet, the neoprene boot works in two ways: 1. The trapped water inside the boot gradually warms up 2. Heat transfer from the body decreases. The boot and the thin covering of water form a layer of insulation. Neoprene is a closed-cell elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles that have insulating properties.
  2. The design of the DG500 dinghy/catamaran neoprene boot is intended for cool and cold weather:
    The Tribord DG500 neoprene boots are made of 100% neoprene (thickness: 5mm) to ensure optimal thermal insulation. All seams are sewn together with strong thread for this particular type of fabric and are glued to prevent water getting through the seams. A neoprene strip is sewn under the zip to reduce the cooling effects of the water that may get through underneath.

  2. Storage advice
    Prior to long-term storage, rinse with fresh water (to remove salt that could deteriorate the neoprene and damage the zips). Dry and store away from sunlight and moisture.
  3. Cleaning advice
    Dry and store away from direct sunlight.
  4. Product catchline

  5. Lab tested
    Our dinghy technical partners, Kévin Péponnet and Julien Lebrun, who sail at the Pôle France centre in La Rochelle, asked for better grip compared with the previous boot model. The new sole was designed to answer this request.

  • Good sturdy sole

    Leo (United Kingdom)
    Used for More than 2 years
    Wide fit for me as I have narro feet. but with snug top section
  • Brilliant, comfortable boots

    Jane (United Kingdom)
    Used for 2 to 8 weeks
    I bought these boots as a replacement for a really old pair of Decathlon sailing boots. My previous pair must be 10 years old, worn twice a week all year and been through the washing machine along with all my sailing clothes each time I wore them. The grip on the files is good as is the reinforcement for hiking. I hope these boots also last many years!
  • Great Boots

    Price, quality
  • Good budget boot but small

    Katie (United Kingdom)
    Used for 1 week or less
    Bought for my husband for when he has to help my son launch. Perfect for this. They came up small though so had to get a size bigger (whereas the previous version came up huge!). Reasonable looking boot with good sole.
    Value for money for occaisional sailing
    Probably not good enough for serious/squad sailor
