I'm really disappointed in GoLite's price hikes. I've been waiting several months for their new 3-season quilts to arrive. And the price on their web site has been listed at $150 for all those months, with the note, "Temporarily out of stock." Then, when the quilts are finally available, the price goes up over 30% to $200. And it seems like most everything went up $50, since I was also eyeing the 3-season bag at $200. It's now $250.
I think it would have more ethical to list what the items would cost while we were waiting for them to become available.
Can't say I agree. They had a sale on their available/allotted stock. The sale ended at the end of August, they replenished their stock, and prices went back to normal. Can't really call that a price "hike" as I don't think the prices are any higher now than before the sale.

Interesting, I called in early July and was told the sale ended in August and prices would return to normal at that point. YMMV, apparently.

So they're still technically half price ... just a third more expensive than they were.
