    @HELM, since the ballistic nylon batches are one of the last to be made, do you think there’s a chance they’ll get delivered before the end of the year?

    Actually a good amount of these are already in queue for QC right now so the answer is yes!

    Woooohooooooo thanks Helm, wasn’t putting any pressure, just curious since I read on the site that they would be produced last. Thank you, can’t wait to receive mine and thanks again for the quick response sir!

    I went with USPS as the shipper hopeful that if it came down to the wire they'd deliver Saturday if needed... I leave for two weeks Sunday morning.

    My fingers are starting to run out of nails to chew

    What style did you order? I ordered the 1050 nylon and I'd be fine falling down the queue so people in a rush can get theirs sooner. No hurry on my end.

    A noble man if I ever saw one.

    I ordered the Wolf grey. As much as I talk it's all just being anxious...like a kid in Christmas. If it makes it before I leave I'd be over the moon, if not, I have something to look forward to at the end of a trip.

    Alright guys, this is what we got right now...................

    The first shipment left the factory late this afternoon and it is scheduled to be in VA late Thursday unless something crops up or there is an issue with clearance etc. If all is good, we start shipping on the US side first thing Friday AM. It looks like we're not gonna make it for those of you leaving this weekend for the holidays. My apologies for this.

    The second and last shipment will get to VA on Monday and chances are we'll ship those the day after Xmas - Boxing Day for some of us ;)

    Anyway my work here is done. I've gotta head south for a couple of meets this week and then I'll be back in VA in time to help ship the first batch out.

    Thanks all for your patience. I will get you another update when I can.

    If I recall correctly, I believe that I did as well. We leave early in the AM on Thursday, so if it's not here on Wednesday afternoon/night...I will end up with another Christmas present when I get back. Hehehe.

    @HELM - Sounds like I may miss my shipment. Bummer, oh well. Thus, can you please hold my orders until I arrive back on 12/28.

    Hi Helm,

    Would you be shipping to the US only or you may ship some to Singapore soon? Or this part of the world would have to wait until the US shipment is completed? Im so anxious and excited and hopefully, you would be able to arrange the shipment soon.

    Thanks much in advance!!

    Shipment to Singapore distribution point is happening concurrently. If all is good, orders will start fulfilling on Friday too.

    Man I am flying on fumes right now. Cant' wait to get back home! While pushing to get the EV2 out, we managed to finish production on some shoe and boot bags, and I'm waiting for the new packing cubes to be done!

    Sorry guys as soon as the new cubes are done I will get photos up. These will be exactly like the new boot bags in 210D ripstop nylon and with the double zipper system where the top zipper is the cube access and the middle zipper helps in compressing the cube further.

    I'm in Malaysia right now helping a client with a fit on a new 75L pack and as soon as I'm done I'm headed home to help with the EV2 shipment.
