i just ordered long did it take for yours to come in?

Ordered and paid for an "in stock" carrier on Jan. 8th. Still haven't received. Not super thrilled.

Took me 6 weeks to get my front/rear plate and carrier combo. Got it Saturday! Going to get the plates rhino lined tommorow since they quoted me a pretty cheap price on the tuff grip coating.

just got an email today saying it might take longer than the 4-8 weeks they originally stated =[

It's been almost 3 months and Im still waiting...

Similar to jdben, I also ordered an "instock" carrier early February and it's nowhere in sight. Credit card was charged same day as order. Several emails later, still no eta. I understand the current market is OOS on just about everything but their website should be accurate to whats posted. Or at the least charge my cc when the item ships. Probably my first and last order with this outfit.

Just checked the website and they are giving a wait time of 10 weeks or more.

jahknee 03-30-2013 12:09 AM

its been so long since ive ordered i almost forgot that i have something pending =[ an update every now and then would be nice

jdben92883 04-08-2013 2:04 AM

Still no carrier. Nobody has followed up on anything over there without mulitple emails. Multiple times. I'd sort of give them a pass if it were plates (although I received my set of plates a month ago from another company that had no problem getting them to me in 2 weeks), but 3+ months for a carrier that STILL shows "in stock" is getting a bit ridiculous.

I hope they don't belly-up before they deliver. I'd definitely look towards another vendor in the future.

Hello Jdben, can you PM over your order number or name and we'll figure out whats going on?

jdben92883 04-08-2013 9:37 AM

PM sent.

Per our PM your order is out for delivery today - should see it this evening, tracking provided in PM.

Carrier did arrive this afternoon. It looks to be well-made. Stitching in the stress points is very heavy duty. Plate retention is good. Mesh interior seems like it will be comfortable in hot weather/under clothing. The waist strap is secure with/without the side plates. Overall I'm satisfied with the carrier. Each person I came in contact with was pleasant and accomodating...I just didn't like having to following up as many times as I did and it seemed like I needed to initiate each correspondance.

Thanks for finally getting it to my door.

last email i received from them said 8-10 weeks.. it is now week 11 any updates?

kalimus 05-28-2013 7:03 PM

I've been thinking about ordering one... is it worth the 8-10 week wait?

jahknee 05-28-2013 9:44 PM

its more than 8-10 weeks...been waiting since feb

kalimus 05-29-2013 8:38 AM

Awwww well boo to that. 14-15 weeks now? Have you gotten an update?

jahknee 05-29-2013 7:39 PM

last email 2 weeks ago said theyll let me know by the end of this month which is tomorrow

jahknee 05-29-2013 7:40 PM

i believe they have the plates in stock, just not the carriers

Lc17smp 08-08-2013 12:32 PM

Me too, but if it takes three or four months to get, I'm going elsewhere.

We're happy to announce lead times have significantly reduced over the last few months.

All of our armor has been shipping within about (2) weeks or less if just plates are ordered.

The lead times on the website are up to date for our carrier packages, and being updated and reduced weekly. The craziness from earlier this year was the cause of the extensive lead time, however going forward we've secured a steady supply of our carriers and have made every effort possible to prevent that from happening in the future.

Our goal is to reduce our lead time as much as possible while putting out the same quality product we're known for.

40calibre 09-11-2013 7:36 AM
