Production Update (Dec 5)

Hey everyone! We’re doing everything we can to expedite and streamline the process… Here’s the latest info we have from Blue Ridge Overland Gear (BROG). 

When we last updated you, we told you we’d shipped through backer 168. Since then, BROG has been manufacturing them and preparing them for freight shipment to SoCal. They have 50 units completed now and will manufacture another 50 this week, giving us enough to fill a pallet and freight them on the 11th or 12th. Provided they don’t have any further delays in the meantime, that will put the pallet in SoCal early the week of the 18th. These units will be sent to backers on the West Coast.

For those on the East Coast, your Deadman will be manufactured while the SoCal freight shipment is en-route. Your Deadman will drop-ship directly from BROG in VA, skipping the freight process entirely,  arriving sooner as a result. 

Regardless of whether your Deadman is headed to SoCal or drop-shipping from BROG, we’re projecting that all of the remaining Kickstarter orders will be shipped to you by early the week of the 18th. We’re doing everything we can to get these fat yellow beauties into your hot-hands in time for the Christmas holiday… we all expected to see them delivered in the early fall, so while Christmas is still quite late, we’ll enjoy our egg-nog a little more this holiday season, knowing they’re all on their way to their new homes. 

So where does that put your order, exactly? Here’s what we’re planning: 

Backers who will receive a shipment from Deadman, once we receive the pallet: 169, 171, 172, 173, 175, 176, 177, 178, 182, 183, 186, 187, 189, 191, 192, 193, 195, 196, 197, 198, 199, 200, 201, 202, 203, 204, 205, 206, 207, 210, 211, 212, 213, 214, 216, 217, 218, 220, 223, 224, 225, 226, 230, 231, 232, 235, 236, 237, 239, 240, 241, 245, 247, 251, 252, 255, 256, 257, 258, 259, 265, 266, 268, 269, 270, 272, 273, 274, 275, 276, 278, 279, 280, 281, 282, 284, 286

East Coast Backers receiving a shipment directly from BROG: 170, 190, 194, 208, 215, 219, 233, 238, 242, 244, 249, 260, 262, 271, 285.

For those of you that pre-ordered on BackerKit, we’re also planning to get to most of you in this freight shipment as well! Once we have a more specific count, we’ll update you separately.

As we get closer and approach these milestones we’ll update you again. And of course, once we ship your reward, you’ll get an email with a tracking number, so you can see exactly where your Deadman is at and when it’ll arrive. 

Thanks again for your patience - this has been quite the ride!
