2021 Summer Reservations

All About Reservations

In the past (pre-covid), if the pack or accessory you wanted was sold out, you paid upfront and received a set delivery date typically 1-2 months out. At the time it seemed like a lifetime to wait, little did we know....

As we all know now, production takes longer, costs more and has more variables and as a result, we have had to change how we operate.

For the foreseeable future expect much longer lead times (6-8 months) and reservations will be required.

The reasons for the reservation system are to help you better deal with the much longer wait times by offering different perks and payment options. It also helps us better manage our budgets and forecasts.

It's important to expect production to take longer than any of us want. If you must have your pack by a specific date contact before ordering. Thanks for your patience in advance.

NOW OPEN

Making Packs and Schedule Updates.

It takes a lot of steps to make a single pack. Let's get into the details and cover how much time is needed for each. This will help you understand the overall timelines and set your expectation for any delays.

STEP ONE

BILL OF MATERIALS (BOM)


Each and every part of your pack starts on a spreadsheet known as a bill of materials or BOM. The BOM serves as a complete list of all the materials and parts—virtually every item—that a manufacturer needs to create a certain product.

There are approximately 80 different parts to each pack including raw materials, subassemblies, subcomponents, and parts—and the precise quantities of each.


STATUS UPDATE: March 18th, 2021

The BOM for all packs has been approved and parts on on their way to the Philippines. At this time many of the parts have yet to arrive. All parts are on schedule. There are currently zero delays.

Parts for Adventure Packs are scheduled to arrive first.

STEP TWO

PRODUCTION, QA AND PALLETS

Raw materials are assembled, cut and measured. Sewing machines are reconfigured and there are over 225 different steps in the line. It takes a lot of different people to create each and every pack. As each pack gets made, it goes through dozens of quality assurance checks and steps before getting wrapped and loaded onto a pallets for an ocean voyage.


STATUS UPDATE: March 18th, 2021

As of today production is schedule to start in May and continue through June.

STEP THREE

OCEAN FREIGHT

The trip from the Philippines to Los Angeles takes about 3 weeks. The first shipment is scheduled to leave the Philippines in mid-May.

This step is also important because this is when we will contact you to arrange for delivery, selection of perks and the payment of the balance. Expect to hear from us once your pack has left the Philippines.


STATUS UPDATE: March 18th, 2021

As of today there are no delays impacting ocean freight transportation times in the Philippines.

STEP FOUR

PORTS, IMPORTS & UNLOADING


All ocean freight must be unloaded and cleared through customs before getting trucked to our warehouse in Arizona. Pre-covid it took 7-10 days to complete step four.


STATUS UPDATE: March 25th, 2021

As of today FedEx has informed me that STEP FOUR is taking 20-30 days due to a huge backlog at the ports and fewer drivers available. The global shipping crisis is poised to continue into the summer, affecting both international cargo and domestic parcel shipping. FedEx has informed me that STEP FOUR is taking 20-30 days longer. The port of Los Angeles has seen a 217% increase in volume, and ocean cargo costs have risen over 40% compared to this time period last year. Volume increases, shipping container shortages, and driver shortages will continue to stress the global logistics infrastructure. The result will be a continuation of port congestion, extended delivery times, and increases in freight rates.

The odds that the backlog has cleared in time for our shipments is unknown.

***If the backlog is not cleared this will impact delivery and result in delay.

STEP FIVE

FROM US TO YOU

Once the packs arrive at our warehouse in Arizona, the turnaround time from us to you is be quick. All packs are sent via FedEx.


STATUS UPDATE: March 18th, 2021

Estimated 2-10 days for FedEx.

OTHER IMPACTS

PHILIPPINES COVID LOCKDOWNS:

Please understand that the timelines listed above do NOT include any lockdowns imposed by the Philippines government. If a lockdown goes into place it will impact the timelines.


STATUS UPDATE: March 18th, 2021

COVID is having a significant impact in Manilla. I am told there could be a two-week lockdown. If this happens it will impact the delivery of raw materials to the factory. (Step One and BOM)

COVID cases in the BATAAN Province (location of the factory) are not high. No lock-down is expected.

**Please understand that these timelines are subject to change and why we are making you aware many months ahead of time. Please expect production and delivery to take longer than any of us want. If you must have you pack by a specific date please order with the expectation that it will not arrive in time. If you ever need to cancel your reservation just let us know. Your reservation is fully refundable.
