Danner boot dressing

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone know of anywhere that has some in stock?

    I have searched the web to know avail.
    I have emailed Danner who said that some chap from Denmark would get in touch (not this week!).
    I spoke to a very helpful chap at Penrith Survival Stores who told me that since Danner has stopped dealing directly with the UK and appointed a European Distributor in Denmark the costs to UK retailers has almost doubled.
    The Boot dressing in question costs $5 in the USA but by buying them from Denmark would retail at £12 in the UK!
    A great state of affairs considering the current exchange rate!

    I would like to get hold of the pukka stuff but if anyone knows a good substitute (not wax) then I would be grateful.
  2. Many thanks for the link.
    I called them up to check availability and was told it had been a discontinued item for a while.

    Two minutes later they called back to say they had a found a couple left.
    I bagged 'em.

    Thanks again.
