Northwest meets Northeast

As two companies deeply rooted in the outdoors, we are proud to partner with Vermont-based Orvis for a new collaboration project. To merge our opposite coast experience, we started with the versatile Danner Light II as our base and added signature Orvis detailing. Whether you find yourself in the woods of Maine or the wide open space of Eastern Oregon, the Orvis Danner Light II is built to perform in the field. Durable and capable, it will serve you for years of hunting and hiking to come.

Traditions of excellence

The Orvis Danner Light II was built to live up to not only one legendary reputation, but two. No easy task for any boot. Using our premium full-grain leather, that’s passed all our stringent quality testing, and combining it with abrasion-resistant Cordura in the signature Orvis green, we created an upper ready for any hunt. Then, we turned to industry leading GORE-TEX for the best breathable waterproof protection on the market, promising to keep your feet dry and comfortable.

Now with Vibram® Megagrip

The Vibram Sierra outsole is a classic for good reason; it's extra-stable and dominates rugged outdoor terrain. Decades on and it’s still one of the best available. For the Orvis x Danner collaboration, Vibram infused the legendary Sierra with their cutting-edge Megagrip compound. With this combination you get incredible traction on wet and dry surfaces for improved performance without sacrificing the iconic look of the Danner Light II. Win win.

American boots from American legends

Made in USA, the Orvis Danner Light II is built by hand in our Portland, Ore. factory. We've been building Danner Light boots for nearly 40 years and our local craftsmen are trained to make the highest-quality product. We knew that keeping production here, at home, would allow us to build the ultimate boot for the modern outdoorsman. And if the need ever arises, we'll be ready to recraft them so they're ready to spend many more years in the field.
