Desert boots might look good but they aren't the best boots for an afghan winter so until we start seeing these mythical brown ones through the system or buying your own black it is.
Is it comfortable wearing that... I'm not sure what it is but looks like kevlar briefs? Any idea why the UK opted for that and not the nut-flap as seen with the US?
As for the boots, it's not what they look like, it's more that the black leather (gore-tex or not) are a great fit for a wet winter tour.
and then I saw airborne jock's post, well played!
Anyway, good to see Torghai looking... Exactly the same...
The yank marines were being issued brit ones on H13.
Good to see antennas now coming in a sensible colour and the new lightweight daysight being fielded.
does anyone knows the manufacturer of the Rucksack which the right soldier is carrying?
