What is the Pilgrim HL GTX?

The high leg version of the renowned AKU Pilgrim with improved breathability and drying thanks to the new Gore-Tex Performance Lining with a perforated EVA interlining. The extra 3" of height adds valuable support when navigating uneven terrain.

How are they constructed?

Upper: The uppers are made from a mix of 2.2mm thick full grain leather and AKU's air8000. The tough, abrasion resistant leather is used on the toe, around the lower half and around the laces, while the breathable and quick drying air8000 is used everywhere else.

Membrane: Breathability and drying times have been massively improved thanks to the new Gore-Tex Performance Lining System that’s made up of a perforated EVA interliner and lighter weight low-absorption lining material. In tests, the Pilgrim absorbed 50% less water than conventionally constructed Gore-Tex lined boots.

Midsole: The key to the comfort and support of the Pilgrim HL GTX is the tried and tested AKU Internal Midsole System which uses an anatomically shaped 3D midsole that mimics the natural foot shape. Normally midsoles are flat and offer no support to the foot, only dictating the stiffness of the boot. With an IMS 3D midsole the foot is cradled in a relaxed position, therefore, reducing fatigue and minimising foot movement. Above the IMS midsole is a layer of high-density EVA, this protects the user from loading forces particularly when carrying heavy packs and provides a layer of protective support for foot rather than it resting on a hard material. Below the IMS midsole is a thicker layer of high-density EVA which absorbs impact forces from the ground.

Outsole: The Pilgrim features a Vibram Black Nitrile sole unit that makes it more resistant to fuels, chemicals, oil and acids. The Nitrile sole also provides improved resistance to high temperatures whilst still providing grip and stability across a wide variety of terrain.


Proved on duty and in operation the Pilgrim has become the boot of choice for specialist armed forces and emergency services throughout the world and is available in 6" ankle and 9" high leg versions.

  • Gore-Tex Performance Lining System for enhanced breathability and quick drying
  • Gore-Tex performance membrane, 100% waterproof
  • IMS - Internal Midsole System for support and stability
  • Vibram Nitrile sole – resistant to contamination with grip and impact absorption

"I first noticed Trekitt by their fantastic YouTube videos, which were very informative and honest. So I headed on over to the website and looked at various coats to try and determine which to go for. Being a bit of a muppet I didn't really have a clue what was best so contacted customer services who directed me to a few coats but said he would go away (over the weekend!) and think some more and get back to me Monday. I thought it was just a fob off as the conversation had been going a while but low and behold on Monday morning an email appears with suggestions! I was so pleasantly surprised that if I hadn't already been convinced to buy with them, it was concreted then. I bought 2 coats from them the same day and very shortly after they appeared. The fit was exactly as they had suggested it would be, the quality of the items was as described and I am very happy with them. In this day and age of large companies taking a backward step from customer service, it is such a breath of fresh air to be treated with such a personal touch. If I ever need anything outdoorsy, I know exactly where I'm going."
