I picked the bottom delivery option and used the new customer coupon and total was $123 CDN. will I get another $25 duty charge and tax on top of that? just trying to figure out if it is worth it.

This bag is fantastic. Bought one last year for a trip to Africa and used it as my carryon bag. Paired with some packing cubes and it's an easily organized bag. I loaded it up with more than I thought I could fit as a carryon (brought 14kg of stone sculptures back from Zimbabwe and carried through multiple airports without difficulty, plus nobody noticed my bag was overweight).

i've been hit 2/3 times in the past. not sure if the new shipping method will incur duty charge, or if it's a hit or miss.

Can't recommend Osprey and the Farpoint enough. Bought my wife the 40L and I have the 55L and that is all we used for 3 weeks in Australia and New Zealand. Extremely comfy when fully loaded and very well made.

as long as it is only $25, would hate to get a $80 bill after this.

use code JAN19 for $20 off a $150 spend, so if you buy an add-on the shipping becomes $5?

Ordered, NCV2019 worked for me. Hopefully this bags as good as everyone says it is. Jasper Red.

If you have a no forex surcharge credit card, change currency to GBP and apply the new customer discount code: NCV2019 (takes GBP10 off order of GBP50 or more, but requires account sign-up)

Net Price even with bulk shipping = GBP 66.48 (equivalent to CAD113.44 as of right now)
This works, much appreciated. Ordered one for my trip to Colombia.

I ordered 2 of these during black Friday for the same price minus the $10 for new customer signups. It was free shipping then and I ordered one with 'free shipping tracked' which had the potential to be hit with customs, and one with 'free shipping parcel' which they claimed wouldn't be hit with duties but would take longer. I live in Toronto and neither of them got hit with duties or customs fees. They also both arrived around the same time (could have been because of the postal strike though).

The bag itself is amazing. There's 2 sizes and I believe I read online somewhere the s/m size is recommended for people 5'9" and under and m/l for above. I'm 5'8" and found the s/m size perfect. Also it seems like that size is recommended for females as well but I suppose that depends on their height. Note that the s/m is also 38L instead of the 40L but for some that might be a bonus.

I got dinged earlier with duty ordering this from CRC :( Should have picked the duty paid option, but decided to risk it and lost it.

How much did you get dinged?
