    So you're on day 12? That sucks. I've had packages from China arrive faster. I think it would be a good idea for Metro to add shipping insurance. If the border issue is that delayed I would feel uncomfortable. Honestly it was a real factor in my initial order. The products look amazing but I'm very disappointed in the shipping delay. I understand this in not Metro's fault. Nevertheless it's a bummer. I guess it will make it that much sweeter when it arrives.

    I must say, you US guys are a bit spoiled when it comes to shipping times. 12 days for international shipping is nothing. Waiting is half the pleasure. ;D

    I am waiting as well, tick tock,tick tock.
    Already thinking of another one of these... I guess a "squirt box" just just wouldn't sound right , huh?
    I can't wait to see You Guys get Yours, just to see some new pics of these things.

    The shipping I use has a built in 100 insurance, but I only put it as $10 value and it's labeled as "fabric sample gift"

    Hope that helps.

    Lucky sod! Mine are still somewhere between Canada and the UK, then I have our notoriously poor postal service to deal with (and pay a ransom to) before they'll arrive.

    I'll be thinking of you happily be-skinthed!

    Jealous!

    Mine went out on the 20th so it could be this week if, like you, it only takes 13 days. Though I would think it would reach me faster than you.

    Cool. This thread was supposed to be for picture of your purchase in use. Looks like you're going to be the first one.

    Pics or it didn't happen! :D

    I've ordered my custom one yesterday and it shipped the same day. I was stunned how fast it was. I will probably have to wait longer for it to arrive because our Customs Office likes to hold on to the packages for week or longer.

    I received my XL+ today!

    Eric, your craftsmanship is top-notch. I went over my Skinth with a fine tooth comb looking for ideosyncracies or flaws ... and I found nothing but perfection. :)

    The Skinths footprint is ideal, as I need less bulk and more streamline on my belt ... or when it's externally mounted on my Maxpedition Sitka. I'm currently running through a whole bunch of loadout permutations - and I love what I see so far. As soon as I retrieve my iPhone (left it across the border - argh!), I'll photograph it and post pics.

    I was surprised that I could actually load (er, *cram* is a better word) an Altoids tin into the main compartment. Although my soon-to-be-ordered Bushcrafter Skinth will be dedicated to that configuration. I'm glad I waited to order the second one until I received this one ... as it will certainly influence my option selection for the 2nd order. Also, a small hank/roll of 550 paracord makes a nice bottom buffer for my Charge TTi (my preferred multitool) in the main compartment. The TTi's bit holder and tube extender fit fantastic, as per Eric's photos.

    Ergonomically, my Skinth works great for rapid deployment and insertion of all my tools.

    I do recommend that folks seriously consider paracord pull-tabs on the side tube pockets. Especially if speed and ease of opening is an issue to you while wearing gloves.

    So, bang-for-the-buck .... I give the Skinth XL+ an .... A+

    Either way it is much faster than I expected - I've expected it will take you 2 weeks or so (I assume you have loads of orders).

    You are correct sir. Thanks for the wishes :D


    Awesome :3
