Quick Overview

Rugged all-terrain and built with nothing but the best materials, the Danner® USMC RAT stands ready for any mission, any environment, any time.
Details

Ready for any mission, any environment, any time.

Developed side by side with the United States Marine Corps, the RAT (Rugged All Terrain) earned its name among elite warfighters as being the only proven USMC rugged all terrain boot available. Precisely crafted with a highly durable nubuck leather, a tear resistant 1000 Denier nylon, an abrasion-resistant polyurethane reinforced heel and toe cap and an advanced Vibram 360 Dri Ice outsole, the RAT embodies Danner's commitment to crafting higher standards. We recommend women select 1.5 to 2 full sizes down for correct fit.

Nubuck Leather & 1000 Denier Nylon Upper
For superior abrasion- and scuff-resistance, we use full grain nubuck leather combined with lightweight, breathable Denier nylon. This combination offers some of the best protection in cold and wet environments.
Mesh Lining
Lightweight and breathable for total foot comfort.
USMC Certified
Developed side by side with the United States Marine Corps, the RAT (Rugged All Terrain) earned its name among elite warfighters as being the only proven USMC rugged all terrain boot available.
Speed Lace System
Our special hardware allows you to tighten from toe to top with one swift tug for a secure, tight fit.
Vibram® 360 Dri Ice Outsole
An advanced lug design combined with Vibram's Dri-Ice compound keeps this outsole flexible and stable in extreme cold.
Extended Sizes
To accommodate more people, we've made this boot in extended sizes. We recommend women select 1.5 to 2 full sizes down for correct fit.
Stitchdown Construction
Handcrafted to provide a wider platform, our legendary stitchdown construction offers increased stability underfoot. Many of our stitchdown boots can be recrafted.
How It Fits
The 610 is our most universal last and can be worn by all foot shapes and sizes. It provides a snug fit through the heel while allowing ample toe room for most versatile fit. This allows more support and side-to-side movement.
Recraftable
Extend the life of your boot with our recrafting services. This boot is eligible for a number of services, including part replacement, leather care and restitching. See our Recrafting page.

I use these boots for construction, walking on hard surfaces and going up and down ladders. My arches don't hurt after days up and down ladders and the lateral support was very good walking on pitched roofs. My feet were never hot and at the end of the day I didn't want to take them off. The combination of an excellent semi-rigid outsole with the most cushion in any prodction boot I've experienced makes this by far the most comfortable Danner or any other boot I've EVER owned and that's a lot. I plan on taking them hunting as well and will buy another pair for my summer hikers/hunting boots. Please never discontinue this boot. Thank you Danner.

I currently own 6 pairs of Danner boots. One pair is 16 years old and I still wear them often . For the $300+ I paid for this pair, they just did not hold up. About a year after purchase (Warranty Expired) they started to come apart. I am very disappointed with these boots. I will wear them until the sole is gone and then throw them away. Not going to spend the money to have this pair recrafted. All in all, Danner makes a great boot. I like my Desert Acadia GTX's better, but sadly they have been discontinued.

BEST DANNER BOOTS EVER!!!

By Andy

Verified Reviewer

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Heavy equipment operating
      • Hiking
      • Summer building

      Comments about USMC Rat 8" Mojave:

      These boots are the best fitting, lightest, most comfortable Danner's, along with being the best design. I especially love the 360 degree Vibram sole! I have owned several pairs and use my Bobsole Gortex Danner's in the winter and love them too! I'm a 64 yr. old Marine Corps grunt who demands only the best for his feet (23 Search & Destroy missions in Vietnam, 3 Purple Hearts). When I'm wearing these Danner's they are infused with Marine Corps energy and they make me feel like I'm 21 again!

      Comments about USMC Rat 8" Mojave:

      These boots have been all over and have never failed me. You may say they are a bit heavy, but there isn't a boot with this much foot and ankle support out their that is any lighter. This is one Hard-Core boot built for one purpose...taking it to them.

        Comments about USMC Rat 8" Mojave:

        I bought these boots from the Danner Factory Store and I couldn't have been more impressed. These are quite possibly the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. In fact, it really doesn't feel like you are wearing boots at all. The Fatigue Fighter footbeds are amazingly comfy. I have worn these 10 + hours for work and my feet feel great. My feet stay warm without getting too hot. I would definitely recommend.

        Not worth the money!

        By JoeB

        from Oceanside, Ca

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Initially comfortable

        Cons

        • Excessive wear
        • Ugly

        Best Uses

          Comments about USMC Rat 8" Mojave:

          At first these were very comfortable, after three or four miles the soft comfy material inside started slipping and I could not seem to get the top of the boots tight enough. The leather on the toe and heel was ruined after a week out in the woods. They were scratched and scuffed. That might not be a big deal to some but in the military it is.
