    My only complaint with the Haix Scout, only really used while walking the dog and practicing rucks, they do get quite dirty. Suede brush works for most dirt, but some stuff is quite hard to clean off.

    There is a non gore version out there too. I can't see them forking out for a second pair of GTX boots for each of us and why would we need them? The hint is in the name after all as to their intended use.GTX boots for eveyday use is a bit OTT ,

    Fantastic, so we'll essentially have two summer boots. Couldn't make that up

    A/ I don't think they make them anymore
    B/ Haix have the current contract.This purchase is an amendment to that contract not a whole new one. Remember when they placed the initial order "Single boot concept" still seemed like a good idea.

    Am wondering why they don't just go for a brown version of the existing Boot, Lightweight Operational?

    No. Haix are just not making the original Scouts anymore except for Government Contracts. So if you want a pair of the originals and you come across them online snap them up.

    This is what SHOULD have been supplied with the boots. I had enough interest to go a find out what was recommended.But I am old school kit freak. Must young soldiers will just go for whatever is easiest to get in the shoe shop.NOT go to great lengths to order stuff specially. Boots are being thrashed and its no ones fault except the DF.
    Not even a certain Irish shop carried the Haix stuff for the black boots

    Nikwax Fabric and Leather Proof. Available from all good outdoor retailers and can be applied whilst the boot is wet.

    We got a leaflet alright.A generic one stating the various properties of the boots with regards to oil resistance etc etc. Two pages of it. And ONE line to say "Haix care products should be used". That's it.Nothing else.
    Not WHICH products should be used.You know.Basics.
