They just announced a 40% off sale on their packs.
Just ordered my first pack from them, couldnt beat the price.
Great pack and better price. I carried a Starlight for a couple years and then picked up a Swift - love it! I just may order a spare.
How long is this sale going on? I was really hoping for a ULA Black Friday sale, but that's no guarantee...
I look forward to seeing the first SMD/Brian Frankle backpack designs.
I live near SMD and popped into their new space months ago to pick up some L-stakes and got a sneak peek at a few Frankle/SMD prototypes. I have no insider knowledge otherwise but they ARE working on the packs! That's all I can say; I wasn't sworn to secrecy or anything but it was nice of Ron to let me in right after their move and I wouldn't want to spoil any reveal they may have planned.
Thanks Ian, these prices are impossible to beat even on the used market.:D
+1I've been looking for a used Starlite, now I can afford a new one!
Havent seen a ULA sale, for sure not 40%, but they are giving away a filter with packs. Still doesnt come close to this price. I assume they are selling off all their old stock and coming in with a new line, like stated above.
Purchased a Swift early this a.m.:*Swift BP *Stay *Wing hipbelt--All for $96!--Put a couple questions in the message box. SMD Rep phoned me before end of my workday w/answers. My first SMD purchase--and not likely to be my last!
I had been set on the ULA Ohm for my next pack, but with the Brian Frankle collab I think I will hold off a bit. Hopefully details are released soon. That said, the Swift is awfully tempting.
Is it too much to hope that the new packs will be real products you can actually buy more than once every year or two, unlike some of their recent items.
