Christmas is coming early to one lucky ARRSE'er, with a pair of Black Eagle Tactical 2.0 GTX boots available to win by answering a very simple question:

Having read (and you did read it, didn't you, and not just jumped on the 'guess a number' bandwagon?) the 'A Closer Look At: Haix' article available here,

How many pairs of hands does the Black Eagle Tactical 2.0 GTX pass through during production?

This is only those hands involved in a manufacturing process, not those moving them from station to station, etc.

The winner will be picked on Sunday the 24th of December 2017. Post your answers in this thread!

Good luck!

Note: If you're having issues loading it, download the PDF version (which is a nicer read anyway) from here.

And the winner is......

@Helm

.....shit.

The answer was 56, and he's closest. A pair of Haix Black Eagles is passed through 56 pairs of hands across all the steps, and each pair of hands is actively doing a stage of the manufacturing process.

This could be stitching, cutting, gluing, sealing, shaping, etc.

Who would have thought it? I certainly didn't, and the intent was to hopefully let people realise just how much human labour goes into what I think maybe y of us assume for these big firms, is an automated process.

I'll get the details to the winner after the festives.

Well done!

Or it could be 30 one handed guys !
 
The actual number is 14hundred and seventy four.

But that does include Clyde who is as multiambidextiourous.
