    Wanted! MEC Hut Booties help

    I'd dearly like some Mountain Equipment Co-op Hut booties in XL size. New or used.

    The shipping price from MEC is out of this world-they want $50 CAD!

    By the time they get here, they will probably cost me over $140 for a pair of $35 booties

    I can't find any for sale from other vendors.

    Any help appreciated

    Thanks in advance, Pete.

    Hey Pete; The $50 probably includes insurance and tracking. I have a pair of the high tops. I think you could get them sent for $20 air. Unfortunately i don't live near an MEC . I'm hoping to get to Calgary before the snow flies. If i do i can help you out.

    I feel your pain as I've done this for another friend in the U.K. before. If you'd like, I'll be able to pick you up a pair on Monday and send them to you via post. Just let me know what colours you'd prefer in order of preference in case they have a limited supply in stock. You can email me with the details if you're interested (I think you can email members through this site, right?)

    If you can get someone here to help you out, that's ideal, but I know that MEC periodically does free shipping deals, especially around the holidays. But I don't know if that's Canada or North America only.
