Please READ ALL the notes before participating in this pre-order for the WHITLEY backpack and if you have ANY questions about this, please reach out to us HERE.
No pre-payment nor deposit is required for the pre-order. All we ask is that you honor your pre-order when the time comes to finalize the purchase. Invoices will be emailed about 3 weeks out from start of fulfillment. We are aiming for end July delivery BUT this is an ESTIMATE and it may change.
If for any reason you're among the 'lucky' few that end up on the payment page and you decide to pre-pay for yours, well bless you. Otherwise let us know and we will sort it out for you. This has happened before, no app is 100% perfect.
When the time comes for the invoices, we will post a notice online. There has been several occasions when our invoices have end up in spam folders so if at all possible, please whitelist our email address.
All updates will be provided on our FB/IG pages and via email as we usually do. Please check our FB/IG page before emailing us for updates. When in doubt, come back to this page and read everything again.
When a pre-order is placed you will receive an immediate notification from the store. If you don’t receive one please send us an email HERE and we will check to make sure your pre-order is in. Most of the times these emails are sitting in your spam box / folder please check there first.
If you need to change your order, please email us versus canceling it and placing a new order. We can manually edit your order.
These pre-orders may arrive in batches so some ship out earlier than others. Please keep this in mind.
All international orders - please note that we are NOT responsible for all import duties or taxes or brokerage fees that you may incur for importing a Whitley.
If you chose USPS Priority Mail for shipping, the 2-3 days delivery is an estimate and NOT a guarantee.
For those in Asia, EDC&G in Singapore will be launching the drop simultaneously.
And finally.....we do not have photos of the other Whitleys (ballistic nylon, 500D black and MCB) up just yet and will not have any in time for the drop. We will share these as soon as we can. So if you pre-ordered one in MCB (for example) and don't like how it looks when the photo is up, feel free to change it or cancel your order. Let's keep it simple.
Thanks all for participating and we hope the Whitley is every thing you expect of it when you get yours!
