Not sure how long this sale has been going on. Great price for a breathable lightweight rain suit. $15.26 when using save15 code and free shipping. Other suits available with similar discounts.

Is one color known to be more durable than the other?
I know this is a bit of an absurd question, but given the known fragility of this product I thought I'd ask.Aug 17, 2011 at 8:03 am #1770289

Be aware that I've placed 2 orders with this company and both have been seriously delayed for no apparent reason. The second time that I ordered, I sent a strongly worded email about 5 days later, and got an immediate shipment notification. Received the package 4 days later, missing 1/2 the order. Another strongly worded email and voicemail, and I'm promised to have the remainder of the order in time for a big trip on Saturday.
It appears that they do in fact deliver, but not without either long patience or significant hounding.Aug 17, 2011 at 6:35 pm #1770553
Below is the link to resellerratings.com on The Gearless Machine. Doesn't look good, you see the same kind of problem again and again.Aug 27, 2011 at 7:46 pm #1773553
Your words of caution seem to be well advised. I placed my order 12 days ago and haven't heard anything other than my order confirmation. I e-mailed them earlier this week and have not gotten a response.

@zipperLocale: LOST, but making good time
Placed my order on 8-17 then read Michael Moore's (lilricky)warning about this company, DOH! Emailed them on 8-26 asking about order status. Received two replies on 8-28. The first saying my money had been refunded, no reason given. The second saying my order had shipped! My DriDuck rain suit arrived today!
Anybody else order from them?Sep 6, 2011 at 4:41 pm #1776651
If it helps anyone, I just bought this for $18.59 shipped from this ebay user and he shipped it pretty quick.Sep 6, 2011 at 5:35 pm #1776675
My order arrived today. I had sent two e-mail asking about the status of my order and did not get any personal reply. Only notice that order had been shipped following second e-mail. Product looks rather fragile, but for the price seem very good. The storage bag looks of significantly better quality than the rain suit. All is well.

@twoislesLocale: soon to thru hike the AT
I should have heeded the majority of reviews.
I placed an order for a Dri Ducks suit Nov 27 as well as for a visor.
December 24th I sent an e-mail asking where my order was as they had received the paypal payment.
This is one of the responses today:
We shipped this a long time ago. I have had several packages in the past not make their destinations via usps, and this year we had more than ever during Cristmas. Im sorry for the trouble and I have refunded the order fully.
they in fact only refunded me for the suit.
I sent a follow up letter with several forum posts from here.
um…ever hear of delivery confirmation for 70 cents extra?
and where's the rest of my money?Dec 29, 2011 at 7:32 am #1817009

Just picked up a pair at the link above for $19 shipped with a sale they are having right now. Way more reliable than that other place that everyone has been having problems with. CheersDec 29, 2011 at 8:53 am #1817030
