Hi, I live in Japan I have to pay extra for shipping if I were to order. (Though if I visit family in the US I can get regular shipping charges). There is a lot of eagle creek stuff available here, as well as many other brands of stuff sacks, packing cubes, etc. I've never ordered TB stuff before, so I'm wondering if there is much of a difference. I can't see much difference between them and other brands besides the look of it.
