KAF NAAFI - Meindls??

#2
Bump

I ask because they are insanely expensive to get shipped to Canada, and I will be there in a few weeks so would like to pick up a pair.

In my Exp the EFI in KAF sell the square root of feck all - but maybe that's changed. The PX is however bloody great, and the Dutch place is pretty good too.

I'll ask someone there tomorrow and hopefully let you know.

That is a better idea, and more likely to be cheaper coops, thanks.

In which case, any brits currently at KAF (or in the UK willing to ship via BFPO) have a pair of size 11UK (US 12) they're willing to part with, either for cash or canadian gucci kit/gizzits?

@Old Snowy -

I agree, when I was there in 2006 with the brits it had a great selection of cigarettes and cologne, but f-all else.
However my old man was working in Basra for an NGO and managed to buy himself a pair from the NAAFI at the airbase, hence why I ask.

Hi mate.
from when I was out there last year, go to the yank PX, because it is a fair bit cheaper than the Brit EFI and it has far more choice/range. It is also stocked IMO for the squaddie, wash kit, mosturieser's etc ideal size for your webbing/bergan.
mosturieser? :oops: ......... not gay, I found the skin on my hands started to crack within 2 days of getting out there, it is so dry by the way! :)

Meindl's :cry: ? got issued them for KAF for Herric 09, my feet didnt like them from the word go. If I was you, go to the PX and get a good pair of the yank desert boots or a pair of the Brit Lowa's from somewhere mate.

Many thanks for all the replies and PM's, looks like even if the EFI doesn't have em I'll be able to square away a pair.

Ahh....the power of ARRSE.

I bought a pair from the EFI in Bastion in 2008, paid $95 or $150 for them, scored another pair by exchanging my CF boots at Bastion QM for them.

If you don't have a pair by the time you get to KAF, try to strike up a conversation with either the Brit QMs dept or the the main Brit storehouse. I've heard thats all sorts of trades are possible.
