    Although I know they did trial the Desert version above also. IMHO they should have gone for the BW's version of the Scout which is a darker brown(Hides stains better).

    Bought a pair of Grade II Nepals off them the other day. Delivered in just under two weeks, not entirely sure why they were deemed seconds, perfect condition, not a scratch on them. Just need to wait for the restrictions to lift so I can go and torture them a bit!

    Can be simply a deviation from the customers spec - eg if Ireland insists on D-rings instead of locking hooks and they make a batch with hooks, Ireland will reject as they aren't to the tendered spec. They become seconds. Or they might be missing the webbing heel strap.

    If anybody is thinking about buying the Scouts in the same spec as the issue boots do so now.Haix have stopped making them except for Government contracts and have shifted to the Mk2 design which has open hooks instead of lace tunnels.Get the originals while you still can.

    Looks like you might be right. No sign yet and no update to A9 or L3 either. The wheels they grind slow.
