    Very late "Independance Day special" unboxing

    Never got around to pulling pictures off of my camera after unboxing the last TB shipment I ordered. Just a small order since i was trying out the USPS shipment to Canada: wasabi PCBP, large dyneema organizer pouch in Solar, a Solar key strap, and of course, the limited edition RWB "Spiderman" pocket pouch!

    Nothing particularly special on my box (boo...), so on to the contents!

    Solar is pretty gorgeous, though I think I'm still more of an Iberian or Ultraviolet man myself...

    Been waiting a long time for my July 4th backorder. Might have to try to add some stuff to the order after work, if it's not too late.

    Thanks! I'm happy I bought that lens (Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 for my fellow Micro 4/3 shooters), even though it's really chatty on Olympus bodies. Creamy bokeh, but razor sharp and great colour reproduction, especially for naturally vibrant, punchy colours like your Dyneema lots.

    What is evident to me in any of my "product shots", is that I'll never be a hand model... /sigh

    Wow, the colours are so bright. Did you get dinged with duty fees or did it just show up on your door step? I think my next order is going to have some Wasabi in it. I just posted some photos from my shipment too.

    Nope, no customs or duty charges. Probably helps that TB has a $60 order limit to be able to use USPS. I'm still nervous about making a bigger purchase and shipping it here. UPS is always a crapshoot.

    Just chiming in to say "Hi" from a fellow Canadian, and to pass on that I've put through 4 orders over $60 in the last year, without having to pay any additional fees upon delivery. I was very leery about putting through my first Tom Bihn order, as I had a horrendous experience with UPS in the past (nightmarish brokerage fees), but am pleased to report that I've had no problems. The much-anticipated brown box arrives on my doorstep with no strings attached, so to speak.

    Great to hear! Now we just have to deal with currency fluctuations, and the generally higher cost of shipping anyway.

    It is August... I am seemingly due for my fourth order in four months.......
