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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Greetings,

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.
