I have heard and seen, first hand, otherwise.

The primary concerns are with logistics capabilities and quality vs. price.
Again, I'll look into them and thank you for the recommendation. It is not necessary to get into an argument over this.
I have also received a few other recommendations via PM by people who respectfully did not want to derail the thread, and I will be looking into those as well.

Thank you.

How is discussing manufacturers in a thread about kits derailing the thread? Might as well put things in the open.

And BTW, much of the negative feedback comes from the Primal team.

Because vendor debate derailed the last thread, along with design debate. It killed order quantity in an already disorganized thread.

Speaking of which, I'm not going to debate you on the vendors. I can find negative feedback from any vendor, especially on the internet. I do, however, seek my feedback first-hand or through direct interviews with people who wear a vendor's garments in 2013. If you have read this thread at all, decisions are not being made in a vacuum, many things are taken into consideration, I'm doing my due diligence and research before offering choices to those that have expressed support in making the group order happen.

At the moment, looking at the live results from the survey, you haven't even taken a vote nor expressed interest in purchasing one.

Done. Submitted my preferences in the survey. Very happy with the organisation. I gave up on the last order due to the confusion. Excited about this one.

Survey complete. Thanks for organizing this. I bought the last time around. I think it was Louis Garneau... Being that we are all snobs here, I don't think prendrefeu will let anything but the best vendor be chosen.

Thank you guys, I appreciate the comments!

As for the survey, so far things are shaping up. More interestingly, the numbers! So far we're at 41 jerseys, 38 bibs and 14 pair armwarmers (that includes the subtraction of those that have a deal-breaker with the current leading design option). The list of countries is also super helpful for the potential vendor so we can get some shipping cost estimates as well. If there are any more that haven't taken the survey yet, please do! More numbers = potentially better price breaks.

For the progress with vendors, thank you to those that have given their ideas and experiences via PM, everything is being taken into consideration. Once the numbers are settled, I'll narrow the vendors down to the two that are very close in the quality/price race and we can discuss from there. In the meantime, I am still doing research on our options over morning coffee/breaks from work.

Yes, awesome job Prend! Nothing but appreciation here for the job you've done this far. Really excited about the outcome this time!

The one question we haven't asked is, what is the weight difference between the vendor options???!

Prend, great job on the survey. Very easy to do and didn't take but a minute. Thank you for taking the time to do this.

Nice work! I like all of the designs. And the survey is very well done.

Sorry for the confusion on my design. The one you posted is the last one I did. So all is good.

OK, I stepped in an cleaned up the thread. Please re-read the process that prend has transparently shared with all. Play by these rules, or simply don't participate. No one is forcing you to buy the kit.

Considerate comments are always welcome in all topics on WWs. Let us keep things on track. Thank you.
