    No problem. I've had three deliveries. Each arrived on the fourth business day after being ordered.

    1. Ristretto 13" plus absolute strap, organiser wallet, 2 clear and 3 padded pouches Order total $198 plus $40 delivery charge and £16 plus change duty, VAT and handling fee to UPS
    2. Ristretto for iPad plus absolute strap, 5 coloured and 1 long black key straps, 2 clear pouches and 2 packs of zipper pulls. Order total $170 plus $40 delivery charge and £14.40 duty, VAT and handling fee to UPS
    3. Aeronaut plus 3 clear organiser pouches, a 3D Clear organiser cube, 2 packs of zipper pulls and a cork organiser wallet. Order total $295 plus $40 delivery and £22.55 duty, VAT and handling fee to UPS

    UPS can be paid by cash or cheque on delivery. Theoretically, you can pay, by credit card over the phone, but only on the day of delivery. What I find is that if you phone UPS customer service on the day the parcel arrives in the UK, they will tell you the amount of duty so you can make sure you have the right change handy. I can't find the first UPS slip, so their figure is from memory. I don't know if there's any way round it, but, as, to be honest, its a lot less than it should be, I just pay it. E.g. VAT alone on $335 order at 1.56 $/£ exchange and a VAT rate of 20% should be £44.66. So to only pay £22.55, including import duty and £4.40 brokerage fee to UPS is a bargain!

    By the way I'm 25 miles south of Edinburgh, just north of the border with England.

    Oh, and did I mention that i've already got one of those ultraviolet organiser pouches!!!

    Just to put more pressure on you guys, here's a couple of pictures of nice bright Dyneema colours. I took a shot of the front of the pouches with the TB logos etc., but, through the plastic, they look a bit dull. So I turned them over for a better look.

    Indeed! If I'm remembering correctly we currently only have a few Ultraviolet Clear pouches in Medium and Large. Ultraviolet has not made its way into the Mini or Small Clear Organizer Pouches at this point. I'll check the Pen and Pencil pouches on Monday morning .

    If either of you ever have questions about stock or need help with an order, feel free to email me directly. I'll be more than happy to help .

    Katy, every order since the first one I placed for Ultraviolet Dyneema (the day before this was announced -- when I saw the page for the Shop Bag updated with this color option, and ordered sight unseen) has had a note that I want to add to the order when clear organizer pouches, especially in the pen/pencil size cases, become available. Whenever I've called, I've asked about the availability of these cases. Usually, because of the time difference, I'm told that they can't check on the stodk. When I saw the picture up on the Blog, the first thought was OMG, Ultraviolet Dyneema clear pouches! (Of course, when I called in that day, it was just after the service hours).

    After my large pouch in Iberian Dyneema arrived, I realize that I really wanted more of these pouches in smaller sizes, and placed another order (e.g. #95257). I would have loved to have made one of the medium Ultraviolet pouches a clear pouch, or to have added a pen/pencil size clear pouch in Ultraviolet Dyneema (e.g., as written once more in the comments).

    You're welcome to request Ultraviolet for the Clear Organizer Pouch in the comments box during the checkout process (or over the phone if you place your order that way.) If we have Ultraviolet, we'll send it to you!
