THIS IS CLOSED, THANKS ALL
Everything I have read tells me that these are the MEC equivalent to the new patagonia capilene 4 hoody that's received glowing reviews on BPL (including Dave C's article). However, I cannot guarantee anything, so buyer beware as I am not responsible if they are not similar. I also do not want to deal with returning these to Canada. They are on sale for $25 right now, both men and women's version
These are the facts. MEC charges $19 to ship to the US and it costs $5 to join MEC. I am a member of MEC, but it kills me to pay $19 for a sub 10oz item to be shipped to me.
If you were to buy this item by yourself, it would cost you $25+$19+$5(if you aren't a member). So $44-$49 total.
I'm trying to save a buck, and maybe you want to too. Let me know if you want to join a group buy. I would ask that you pay $36 (this is to cover a portion of the $19 shipping to me, and the additional shipping cost of $3-$7 to get it to your door after the package arrives to me in Boston). I promise to refund any amount if it becomes overwhelmingly clear that I'm benefiting more than anyone else.
I also highly recommend the cloudraker mitts which are ons sale for $19 right now. Amazing...the lightest waterproof mitts I've seen so far. Order some if you want, your total would be $36+$19 (no extra for the mitts since they weigh nothing).
I'm looking for at least 4 people to jump aboard with me. Payment via Paypal PERSONAL/FRIENDS AND FAMILY/GIFT (Whichever avoids fees) Option Only and I need payment before I order, no exceptions. Most people on here should be able to trust me...and if you still don't, then sorry that sucks b/c I thought we were cool :)
I'm hoping to place my order by 4pm (eastern time) before these T2 hoodies sell out (they are at their lowest price I've seen). If you want in, post or PM your size and color and I'll reply with my paypal address. I'll forward all receipts, emails and tracking info so you can follow the progress.
I'm not trying to make money, just chip away at shipping for all parties involved. I may end up saving less than you guys after shipping the orders to your house.
