With this item back in stock, I will remind people of my post #2 in this thread.

At the top right, click on the Canadian flag and change your currency to British Pound.

The red colour is then GBP63.49 and the grey is GBP61.49.
Apply coupon code "NCV2019" (with new account sign up) to save GBP10 off an order of GBP50 or more
Net price: GBP53.49 or GBP51.49 (depending on colour) with free shipping

CAD equivalent (no-FX fee credit card): $90.96 (red) or $87.56 (grey)
CAD equivalent (2.5% FX fee credit card): $93.23 (red) or $89.75 (grey)
[based on today's exchange rates]

Much cheaper than taking CAD$10 off CAD$100 spend...
Congratulations!
Today is YOUR day.
You're off to great places!
You're off and away!

I just realized I paid more for the Red Farpoint 55 lol

I looked at my Amex bill today. Paying with British Pounds worked out to $135.47 CAD. The did charge me shipping but refunded it right away.

Great deal thanks OP!
Help me out here. When I put it in the basket, it says $25 for shipping plus $20 for duties, plus a courier fee.

I spoke to customer service and they said that’s the policy. How do I get the price that you paid?

Literally any packing cube on amazon. They’re all well rated and perform essentially the exact same function. If you want something different MEC has some dry sacs which have lifetime guarantees.

Thanks OP! Ordered 2 in separate orders for the 10 gbp off for each. Also i've found smaller orders are more likely to make it past customs (mostly random though), but even if it gets dinged still a great deal. Got one red and one gray both in M/L.

For reference the exact bag sells at MEC for $220 + tax.

Why are they saying that? It 's free shipping over $75

for the Farpoint 55 I paid:
Subtotal: £85.99
Discounts / Vouchers:
NCV2019 - £10.00
Shipping to Canada: £13.99
Total: £89.98
You saved: 46% (£64.01)

I emailed 2 days later to dispute the shipping. They rebated me the £13.99( $24.10 CAD).

it says "excludes bulky items" which basically lets them exclude anything they want. Some backpacks were showing a $20 shipping charge min, and i dont want to buy based off a "email support and hope for the best".

I was looking the fairway bag as well, which charges shipping, but the farpoint didn't. So figure that one out. Emailed them to ask but i doubt they'll get back to me before it sells out.

I’ve been emailing them all day and they haven’t budged on shipping for the 55. They left it at: after you place your order you can contact customer service

The same thing happened to me, so I just used the Chat Feature this morning (Open Website -> Click Help? in the blue menu up top -> a blue box in the right hand corner of the website. It should say Live Chat Available).
I'd do it right now if you can since there is a time difference and they are probably closing soon.

Just tell them that the website advertises Free Shipping over $75 and that you were charged $24.99 (or whatever you were charged)
They just need your order number and address and they should issue a refund right away.

Good Luck!

Just a follow up. It seems that shipping charges are now removed from this item. I just placed my order for the farpoint 55 for 70GBP.

Great deal!

Do you have to be logged in to an account for the "NCV2019" to work? I tried to apply it at the basket and it says "You do not qualify for this promotion – please check Ts&Cs"
