    Default Cool Find from Copes Distributing

    O.K. I will admit, I am a BIG fan of Copes Distributing. So take everything i say with a Grain of Salt.

    Check out this link:
    Cope's Distributing

    Medium Alice Packs (bag only). $4.99....Yes, that is right four dollars and ninety nine cents.

    So, I ordered 12 of these bags. As part of my Grand Plan to Control the Universe, My family will need modified Alice Packs. I will detail that in a new post....

    So, the 12 Alice packs come in 5 days after ordering. Got three Status e-mails along the way. Nice....

    I was expecting these bags to be used, and to have some wear and tear. Nope. Two of the bags were faded. The rest were either NEW, or so close that it would be hard to tell.

    There was one problem. Three of the bags were actually the Large Alice packs. Copes sells those for $9.99 each....

    So, I sent them an e-mail, and asked for an RMA number because I want the Medium bags....

    They, then, within 13 hours of my request, send me an e-mail and inform me that they are: a). Sending me three Medium bags. b). Including a call tag for the three Large Bags. c). Provide me with a nice 10% discount on my next purchase......

    4 days later, the box arrives. ALL THREE BAGS ARE BRAND NEW!!!!! Call tag is in the box, I stuff the large bags in the box, and hand it back to the Nice Fed Ex Driver who waited for me to repack the box....DONE.

    So, I sum up: 10 Brand New, or VERY Close Medium Alice packs, $4.99 each. Two Medium Alice Packs, slightly faded. No additional shipping for the mis-shipment, no hassles, no questions, no issues, NOTHING BUT OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE!

    When I find things on Copes site, I no longer even price shop. Who cares! If I do not like anything about the order, they have always made it right. This goes back now several years....

    My Advice to any and all:

    Use Copes Distributing for EVERYTHING. Make a note on your order that you are a Member of Gunco. They may not provide a discount, but I have NEVER been unhappy with the result of doing biz with Copes.

    Cope's is tops. I've always been 100% happy with them also. I usually just wait to buy from them face to face at Knob Creek...they are super busy and don't have much time to chat, but they are always friendly and and are definitely on the top of my list.

    I am taking one Alice bag and striping it of all pouches etc. And siamesing it to an unmodified bag to create a sleep system compartment for sleeping bag tarp etc.
    Adding in a Down East polymer frame that is made for the Alice, and using the Molle straps and belt. I have another post in the survival thread, but have been traveling on biz lately so no pics yet. Be a few more days.

    Alice packs at that price and condition are worth picking up and storing. You can always find straps, frames, etc on sale at different times. Check out the other thread.

    I added a couple to an order. Don't have a use for them right now, but couldn't pass it up for the price.
