    What's the difference between the scout and whatever the hell in the high liability combat boot? they look pretty similar...

    Is whatever the difference is enough to justify whatever price difference there'd be between X thousand Scouts on a separate contract and X thousand of CHLB on a joint contract?

    In a word .No.
    The brown desert boots the lads in Mali are using are the exact same as the current Desert High liability boots the UKAF issue. It would be a fair bet that we would stick to that formula and trial the CHLB boot.
    At least I hope that's what happening.Those Feench army Nepal pros are fugly.

    Any idea why?

    Personally I prefer the Alt-berg, but the haix has a big following and such things are merely a matter of personal preference.

    I'd find it odd if you gave the CHLB to 10 people and more than 4 didn't like it...

    The new shirt is an abortion.Picture the shirt we have now.With slits in the hem at side to accomodate the female hips and NO chest pockets.No angled sleeve pockets eitherPen pocket as now.Yuck.
    As for the trousers!Imagine the current BA PCS style trousers pockets(Concealed buttons ,pocket angled.).Now angle the map pockets forward instead of backwards.Add an elastic waist adjuster under the belt.And elasticated ankle cuffs.Again Yuck.
    T-shirt colour is Green NOT brown as previously thought(probably a trial variant) but made from Modacryl. Rank velcro and Tricolour as now.
    Wet suit jacket design is similar to the smock but with a fold away hood.Zipped lower front pocket with waterproof zips and forearm pockets as per the smock.No upper sleeve pockets.No change to the overtrousers.
    Che Che and headover are gone as are the gaiters and Norgie.
    Coolmax socks replacing the current "socks heavy".
    Boonie hat has a detachable neck curtain.
    The Westlife is back too!

    I disagree with you on the shirt - it doesn't look like an abortion - it looks like an alien abortion gone wrong!


    Open to correction on this:
    - common peaker for all ranks (not sure if that all ready the case)
    - common overcoat for all ranks
    - ties (both the normal one and clip on)

    Types of beret:
    Black with red patch
    Olive with lime green patch
    Dark Green with dark green patch
    Red with no patch


    Please don't tell me!!!!!

    I thought the (non ARW) green beret was a thing of the past?

    WTF? We are reverting back to a green beret because someone f***ed up on a flash???
    Can't see either the common overcoat or cap being a flyer. Unless it means ORs are getting an upgraded overcoat (the latest issue ARE paper thin though). And why clip on and non clip on ties?

    I've lost my login details for etenders so I can't log in to view the full specs in the documents, If it is enough time has now passed that the thousands of green lids that were floating around in buckshee, Bde & Bn stores have probably been binned! Most bods who are in a while would still have one or 2 at home anyways.

    Lads.Calm your ovaries.Those are most likely copy and paste efforts from previous tenders,and they forgot to amend them.

    Until someone orders them then they have to be issued everyone gets 2 and then the 500 person RDF gets black again.

    The Westlife jacket is a standalone document and that's there (they have been taken off the scale of issue in the last few month)

    Nobody calls it the westlife jacket except people posting here.
    As an aside the Barracks jacket was never taken off the issue scale.

    losing gaiters and headover seems a bit short sighted.

    always handy bits of kit...especially in cold, wet Ireland!
