Seattle Factory Showroom December Hours
We’re open Monday through Friday from 6:30am – 3:00pm.

We’ll also be open a rare Saturday on December 14th from 10:00am until 2:00pm.

Gift Certificates
Available for purchase 24/7, 365 days a year, Gift Certificates can be a great spontaneous “thank you” or last minute gift. You can even choose to have a gift certificate emailed directly—and instantly—to the recipient (with a gift message, and be sure to click the checkbox that asks “Email directly to the recipient?”).

Holiday Shipping Schedule
Orders received by 12:30pm Pacific Time are shipped same day; orders received after 12:30pm Pacific Time are shipped the following business day. Exception: in preparation for the last guaranteed UPS Ground day for orders shipping to the East Coast, we will be working a late shift on December 13th. All orders in by 4:00pm will ship the same day.

Wondering if you can place your order after 12/13 and still receive it by or on 12/24? Consult this UPS Time-In-Transit map, which calculates the transit time for orders shipped from our Seattle factory, but know that UPS can add one or two business days to any orders shipped in December, depending on the volume they are experiencing.

November 28th
Happy Thanksgiving! We’re closed today.

November 29th
Happy Leftovers Day! We’re closed today too.

December 2nd
The entire crew is back at work for our last debut of 2019. The first 1/2 of the debut will be stocked at 8:00am Pacific Time; the second 1/2 will be stocked at 1:00pm Pacific Time. Splitting the debut helps give folks with varying work, life, school and family schedules a chance to order.

December 13th
Last day for folks on the East Coast and in the Mid-West to place an order with UPS Ground ($10) as their shipping method with delivery by or on Tuesday, December 24. Place your order by 4:00pm Pacific Time to have it shipped same day. And remember: you can still place an order and choose expedited shipping ($20 and up) for December 24th delivery up until Monday, December 23rd.

International orders: order today with UPS International Expedited delivery as your last best bet for receiving your order by Tuesday, December 24. Note: UPS does not guarantee this service, but it is estimated at 2–7 days.

Now available for the first time in 525d ballistic nylon: Aeronaut 30 and Maker’s Bag. Coming soon: Aeronaut 45.

We’re retiring our Road Buddy Duffel 36 and Road Buddy Duffel 60 to make way for new designs. If you’ve been thinking about a Road Buddy, you may want to order soon, as we won’t be making further production runs.

We’ve updated our Planet page with additional efforts: we’re operationally carbon neutral, members of 1% For The Planet, we offer a vegetarian company lunch, and over 80% of our materials are bluesign® and/or OEKO-TEX® certified.
