    Hi,

    I've left several emails and voicemails and yesterday sent a PM and I'm not hearing back from anyone.

    I'm trying to determine the correct size gaiters to order and I'm growing concerned at the lack of response.

    Are you still in business?

    I think they're still there, but more or less a one man operation, and when he goes diving, there's no one to answer the phone. Someone cleaned out their voice mail, so you can again leave a message. No one has answered my email yet about an order I placed on Monday.

    Hi Ron,

    Thanks for your info. I'd heard that about him, but I sent my first email July 2nd and today is the 10th. I've basically left an email or voicemail every other day, sent a PM from here once, and also started this thread.

    You would think if he was going to be gone for a week he would have set up his voicemail & email to reflect that.

    In today's business climate I've seen a lot of businesses close without any notice. If this has happened to him I'd like to know so I can move on.

    I'll wait a little longer, but if I don't hear from him soon I'll order gaiters from someone else.

    Wally

    I agree completely. I ordered one of the adjustable harnesses in what I thought was plenty of time for delivery for a trip next week, had my credit card charged, and like you, I've heard nothing and been unable to contact them.

    Update: A member over on The Deco Stop says the owner is out of the country and should return next week.

    I got a reply to my email also, but he didn't really answer my question. I'll try again.

    Sorry for delayed response.
    We were on design/development trip.
    The questions should have been answered and orders expedited and delivered.

    Thanks for your patience.

    But - how should one figure out what size gaiter they need?
