People are selling their used Army gear. Some enterprising chaps are even selling new Army boots (probably bought with excess cash from reservist entitlements)
Here's a thought......any of you guys think there's a secondary market for Kevlar army helmets? I've got three, yes, that's 3 of them at home. I keep telling them I've enough of them at home, but they seem to like dishing out new helmets....
OK, back on topic.....I find the new Army Gortex boot very comfortable. YMMV.
I've been told that Gortex got it's name from the person who discovered it. Seems like the chap's name was Gore, and he was a Texan. Hence GoreTex. Dunno if there's any truth to that
