The brand-new condition means the item comes directly from the manufacturer. New in storage condition means that we purchased the item from military resources, it has not been used previously by soldiers. On the items you can find its ex-owners signatures, however, it does not mean the item has been used. Moreover, not all items have a tab. Garments, accessories, and equipment which have been previously used by soldiers we determine depending on its condition. We classify 5 categories: 1. Perfect condition – the item with minor signs of use 2. Very good condition – the item with basic signs of use 3. Good condition – the item with visible signs of use, sometimes repaired to full working or minor soilings 4. Sufficient condition – the item with significant signs of use, pilled, snagged, soiled, etc. accessories have defects 5. Second quality (II quality) – the item with significant defects, worn out, holes, discolorations, need to be repaired Please bear in mind that all military items feature by the distinctive smell of a military warehouse. In the case of intense smell, we try to inform you about it in a product description. All new or used items sometimes have cassation stamps, however, it usually vanishes after washing.
Our company is an official representative of Haix shoes in Poland. In our store, you can find brand-new shoes with manufacturer's warranty as well as II and III quality shoes with visual defects. The manufacturer classifies the shoe grade. Shoes rated as II quality have cosmetic defects, whereas, III quality have cosmetic defects and leaky Gore-tex membrane, which means the shoes are not 100% waterproof. Cosmetic defects are usually unnoticeable, however, it is possible that the boots would not be as durable as the same first quality boots. Despite the fact that the boots are not full-value footwear is much higher quality than similar purpose footwear in this price class.
Shoes are available in different sizes. We try to use BW sizing, which tells the length of the foot on which a given size is designed. The shoe insert is about 5 mm longer to maintain proper clearance (room). Shoes are also available in various widths: S - small – narrow foot M – medium – standard width foot L/W – large – wide foot The insole size is the same for all widths. The difference is in shoe construction. We are not able to measure it.
Sometimes compasses in used condition do not include a lanyard which is visible in the photo. Items rated as avery good condition have standard signs of use. Good condition means that the scale on a baseplate can be slightly unreadable. A mirror can be scratched or with minor defects. Compasses with air bubbles work - however, have air bubbles of 0,5 to 1 cm – we send at random. The visual condition of such compasses is good.
Goggles and glasses rated as new storage condition were made for military needs, however, have not been previously used by soldiers.

Items rated as a good condition has visibly scratched glasses or frames but they do not influence on its use. Items rated as sufficient condition have significant scratches on glass and frame.
