    Costco UQ Holy Grail?

    Every other week I check my local costco for the unicorn of DIY gear...the elusive Down Throw. Is this an item that is not needed here in the south? How does one obtain this item? I can't seem to find it online either. If anyone has pictures, item numbers, or links please hook a hanger up!

    It was a winter item that was only at some locations. There were rumors that it might make a re-aperance in the winter again but I would not expect them to be on shelves in the summer.

    If you really want one, you can purchase the same item from Amazon.

    The cost at Amazon is very much inflated though.

    Last time I went to Costco, they still had some. But I'm in Canada...so I don't know about you guys south of the border. I will take a look next time to see if they still have some in stock.

    Last time I checked (a month ago) there were only 12 on the whole eastern US and they were slated for return to manufacturer. (Probably being sent to Canada.)

    At one time, the Item number was 638823. Here are pictures of the store displays from other HF members:

    The last picture is from Costco's website, but not currently available. You might have to wait until the fall. Best of luck to you!!

    Didn't know this was such a hot item, the old lady and I both got one as gifts last Xmas. Have yet to try them in the hammocks.

    With their popularity, I wonder if the manufacturer/distributor will raise the price.
