    Noted... it is all Canadian and Provincial sales tax plus the handling fee, i'll pass that along to anybody inquiring, also note that we are now using US Postal as the dafault shipping method unless somebody needs it faster, in which case DHL or UPS can be used upon request.

    Soooo, is that good enough now, since the pandemic started? I'm asking you because I often hear that lately there have been a lot of problems with deliveries because the borders have been closed for a long time. I need to order some clothes for the winter, but I am terrified to order them because I am afraid that the parcels may get lost somewhere and the money I will pay will not be returned to me. Friends advise me of different services through which they are sure that everything will go well, but I'm still apprehensive. Could you let me know if there is someone here who has used the tracking number epacket service? Since there I will be able to track the location of my parcel? I will be glad of any answers.

    Have you ever considered W2C as a viable alternative?

    I had a similar experience when I ordered my Mountainfly last year. Warbonnet ended up shipping it via UPS, and the shipping cost was almost $25. I live in the US near Chicago. I went to the UPS website and calculated the shipping from Evergreen, CO to my town for the same size/weight package, and the quote directly from UPS was around $11 if I remember correctly. So I contacted Warbonnet and asked that they refund the difference- which they did.

    I'm glad they made the situation right. However, it is still worrisome to see that they may either be overcharging on shipping, and/or not utilizing the most economical shipping option for its customers.

    Full disclaimer: I love my Mountainfly, and would order it again if needed.

    Most of the vendors will work with you to use the most economical shipping method, which is USPS International First Class. I avoid UPS, FedEx etc. as they can charge outrageous scam "brokerage" fees on items coming from the USA. Not an issue with US Postal Service.

    And a word to the wise...if you purchase something from a private seller in the US, have them mark on the customs form that the item is a "Gift"; that way there are no duties or GST/PST taxes to be paid when you receive the package.
