Seems to be under a week delivery to the UK typically, provided it's one that we have on hand. The Khaki Combat and Safari Vests are in stock in most sizes, the black vests are at the embroiderer's shop now, and there are some Camo vests on the way in which won't be ready to ship for about two weeks.

How are these vests sized? I used a tape measure and came to 44" around my chest. that would put me at small. I'm 6'5" and 250lbs. I haven't worn a small anything since I was in preschool! :lol: All my jackets are XXLT or 3XLT. I don't want it to be to loose. Will the XXL work for me? :confused:

Measure with the tape all the way up on your chest, while taking a deep breath. As long as it is somewhere between 46-52", I "think" an XL Safari Vest would actually work instead of the XXL because they run a little long compared to the Combat vests. I'm 5'11" and the XL hangs down at least 5-6" below my belt, so even for you it should be 1-2" below your belt. Too bad my 6'6" neighbor moved or I'd have him try one on. They definitely run at least one size larger than stated to allow extra room for equipment. If you need to exchange it, you only need to pay the round trip shipping.

I would love to order one of these vests. However I am still wiating for the strap they said was shipped on June 12th! Since all questions about it's whereabouts have gone unanswered, I quess I'll keep waiting.:(
I'm off to Africa for a month as of Oct 1st. Maybe the strap will be here when I get back. I don't really need the strap or the vest as I have a couple of each. Just wanted the purchase and donation to support this excellent forum. I'd still like to see it though.

I haven't received any emails or PMs regarding this.

I did send an email to your qwest email address on 7/21 to let you know the strap was returned as undeliverable but I haven't received any replies. I will forward the details via PM.

I received my vest yesterday and I am very very pleased with it, fits a treat and has more than enough pockets for everything I carry about :)

Many thanks to Phil for sorting out my missing strap. The problem turned out to be the address on my end.:o He is reshipping it at no charge. I will definately be ordering a vest now!!

Got my vest a few days ago but only had time to try it on field yesterday. Just great, much better that my old fishing one, with bigger pockets. Heck, I even tried to fit the 100-400 and the 70-200 in a couple of pockets and they just did. No hoods and with some effort but they did. Not that I am even thinking about carrying both those big guys always in the pockets (makes the vest definitely heavy) but if needed, I know it can be done. Lovely.

I finally got around to adding the caps, golf shirt and a nice Columbia Sportswear hat to the shop. The first order will be placed next Monday, so any orders received this week will be part of the first batch. The only item I do not have yet is the black golf shirt with red trim, which I thought would be a good alternative since the red trim will match the logo.

We now have a decent inventory of vests, too, so most sizes of Khaki and Black in the Safari and Combat vests are on hand now, even though some combinations still say special order. Eventually, I will update the ordering page so it's tied into our inventory.

There are also a couple of new Op/Tech items that we are having customized that will be unique to POTN, too. The Op/Tech grip strap and tripod/monopod leg wraps. I'll be starting a poll soon to see which of these are feasible, since the minimum order is 50 of each.
