    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...)

    No need to be formal: I served 10 months and made it to Hauptgefreiter after 9 months.

    Being in the reserve I had some unpleasant experiences with the Grennies...

    Looks like we have it cheap in Australia, the bands are sewn into the hem of the trousers with a toggle to tighten it

    update.
    I bought the Acadia's and I love them! Ive hade them for almost 2 years now and they are the best boot ive ever owned. Im on my second pair of soles and the lether and everything else is still going strong. Only thing ive had go wrong with them is i had to re-stich a small section of the boot.

    I never accepted tucking pants into boots and I would give the new recruits hell for that(not nearly the stupidest reason to, there were plenty of other excuses competeing for that title). It looked stupid, and the bands cost 1,20 € at the nearby cafe/shop at our garrison, so not affording them was no excuse.
    Altho I never understood why they weren't issued but had to be purchased separately. After all we all got a shaving kit worth 17 € on our first day so...

    The one problem with rubber bands are the thickness/quality. I've seen cadets on parade with their trousers nicley done with bands. Then they make a single right turn, band snaps, cue one stupid-looking trouser hem.

    One thing you could do is bulk buy a load, and sell them off to other recruits for profit. from what I've heard, you can make quite a turnover. (Friend of mine, currently in the TA, did the same and made himself £50)

    Wow did you entirely miss the reason why this thread is so damn long to begin with?
