    Take a half a meter of thinnest elastic waist band from your mothers sewing kit. If you want to be hip take black, not white. If you want to do it at home tie a ring that fits your upper ancle, cut the excess of, repeat process for the other leg. Make it fit, but not too tight or it'll hurt after some hours. The idea is that you roll the the pants between your leg and the band where the boot ends so it looks nice & fluffy.

    Thats what I used for the whole time, no need to spend even two euros.

    2€/pair????????? WTF your country actually makes you pay 2 euro for a pair of blousers? They cost like 25 cents here which is equal to 16 euro cents.

    I spent four years in the Mountain Infantry and went through some pairs of them. HAIX is a, in my opinion, not so good subcontractor of LOWA.

    If you can, get a pair made by LOWA, I think the first to produce these shoes were MEINDL ( = best ) until the army went from one cheaper producer to the next with the same model.

    A good shoe nevertheless!

    I got a pair of these about 3 years ago. Can't fault them, they're brilliant. They have saved my feet on Dartmoor and many other tabs throughout England.Something about warm dry feet that make me smile.
    Be aware, Webtex do a copy which are nowhere near as good(In my opinion)

    If your refering to what Webtex call the Pro XT boot i would agree,the interior membrane never sat very well in mine and they were just never as comfortable as the surplus LOWA pair i had before .

    Ol' Bob,
    Sorry, I just saw this. You should be able to find these at cash sales or the PX (on Mainside). I don't know where cash sales is located at Lejeune. They're great in the sand box like when it gets really cold December-February (at least in Ramadi). I had these and some of the hot-weather Bellevilles which had Gore-tex but they also had the drainage holes and were fine in hot weather (pictured).

    What did they issue to you at MCRD?

    Default BW Mountain Boots

    Hi,

    I served with the last tank bataillon of the former 1. Gebirgsdivision. I purchased the original mountain boots myself an they are still great! The original ones have just one flaw: The soles are very slippery one ice and snow, so you'd better stick to LOWA or Meindl. They've got a different sole and are thus the best alternative.

    Besides that, those boots are really the best I've ever had!

    Yours,
    YoungGun (not so young anymore, as some may guess...)

    @ Jarhead: About time a real Jäger shows the Grenis how work is done!!!
