A short post this one. Heat-felt thanks to Rand and Russ at Trail Designs. I ordered the 600ml Evernew Ultralight and corresponding Ti-Tri Sidewinder with inferno this weekend. I sent a speculative email to see whether it would be with me before I hit the hills next week. They answered that it would be unlikely unless I wanted to pay for Priority Mail. On balance, I chose not to and simply risked it. Their email communication was helpful, immediate and convivial. Without telling me, they chose to send it Priority Mail anyway, at their own expense, and I received it today - 3 working days after they sent it.
Not much more to say to that, is there?
