Same story as the rest of you for the most part. Stalker vest ordered years ago with quote of 6 week lead time. Got it months later but very happy with it. I did order a gauntlet as instock and received that 2 days after the order. I was going to say just buy the in-stock stuff but sounds like even that is slow now.

Best advice? Buy used and let someone else wait for their stuff. The gear is built like a tank and after 3 years of playing with the gauntlet and using it in every game I've played, it still looks brand new. It's really too bad though as with such a great product and the demand out there, you'd think one could make a profitable and happy business with a little customer service and better staffing to reduce those lead times.

Ordered my stalker vest. Took about 4 months but I knew and accepted the lead time. I just got my order that I placed back in september. Never had any complaints about them ever.

I have a "built to order" order in, too. I put it in knowing that it would probably be a lengthy wait. I think WTF would do themselves a favor by introducing a little more transparency...maybe a weekly (monthly?) email telling me where I am in their fulfillment queue. Might save everyone a lot of wondering and WTF some brand equity.

I saw somewhere posted that WTF was moving locations and setting up a new shop with dedicated workers because they were working out of the back of their main business when time permitted. I will look for that announcement when I get home from work.

Yes I believe it was an email they sent out.

I think you are correct and I cant find that e-mail ( I think I deleted it after I read it and I have CRS ) and also that message was posted on the old WTF website before they switched over to the new website. I also found this over on another Forum dated 10 June 2016 : https://gearmaker.org/index.php?topic=885.0
