    For anyone checking this thread who is curious about the wait time of their WBBB, allow me to (w/o his permission) intercede on Brandon's behalf:

    The site is very bare-bones from what I can tell. He most likely does not have an easy interface to update the stock status on items, aside from manually editing the html and uploading it to his host.

    This would take anywhere from 10-30 minutes, and keeps him away from his machine. Many successful cottage industry guys stay backed up and keep ship times ambiguous to account for random spikes in order volume. This 30 minute break could mean one (or one-half) less hammock/tarp/etc going through the pipeline.

    Lesson: when ordering from a manufacturer (not retail or distributor level), patience is a virtue. All prominent gear-makers I know work hard, try to keep prices reasonable, but get a lot of heat for not shipping like Amazon. Relax, stay focused and order *early*.

    I think in hindsight, most will agree that custom gear designers/builders are a cornerstone of our niche interests. They make the highest-quality gear, often listen to feedback, and have a positive effect on the economy. Never forget that.

    (Also - congrats on the BB!)

    I think you miss their issue, or rather mine. When the site says two weeks then that is what people expect. It would be better to say 2 to 4 weeks and then no one would be expecting anything at two weeks. If I had read this forum first and seen others waiting that long I also would not have had any expectations. However I would wait that long again for such a GREAT product.
    Where ever you go,
    There you are.

    instant gratification

    One thing I have learned is great things come for those who wait! I used to be an instant gratification kinda guy.

    I ordered my WBBB dbl 1.1 less than two weeks ago and its on its way today.

    Keep in mind that this stuff is not produced in China.

    You're correct, my apologies. Before coming to this site, I'd heard about WB and the high volume of orders (and subsequent wait times). Some thread has a post mentioning Brandon being really busy and planning to update the site (maybe it was a linked interview?).
    With that knowledge, I checked recent "ordered my....recieved my" posts, and estimated an avg of 2-6 weeks before submitting an order. Also made aware that he may be currently shipping in two-week increments. This way, there was no disappointment at a long wait time. I did custom kydex sheaths and holsters for a while, so my perception of a cottage-type small business such as WB may be a bit different than some.
