Green jackets and size 8 boots

Discussion in 'Weapons, Equipment & Rations' started by Cardinal, Dec 5, 2006.

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. Everywhere I look at the moment I am finding the new issue "Lowa type" boots for sale, Salisbury, Poole, Bournemouth and Southampton.

    Always size 8's! Every shop says there is a bloke from 2RGJ touting them but always size 8 never size 9!

    They do appear to be very good and surprisingly light but why is it this Greenjacket is only nicking size 8's! dont the RGJ employ people with size 8 boots or something.

    If anyone knows where there is a new pair of size 9 going let me know. Yes I tried e'flea but they only seem to have massive size 12 and 13!

    They seem to have got it right in the design and build of these boots, very nice indeed.

  2. Tried here?

  3. instead of lowas look out for BW Berghshuh. This is the west german army equivalent lightweight mountain boot and is made by Lowa/meindl or Hiax. On E Bay brand new and boxed £80 plus postage. Google CFI military supplies as there the seller
  4. Mate one thing about all the info given here
    Its no use to you unless you try a pair
    Ive used lowas for years and for me they are spot on :D
    I was advised to try a pair of altbergs which half the sqn swear by
    but personally I thought they were crap :x
    Its down to your own personal choice
    What works for one may not work for you so if you can try before you buy :wink:
