    Angry Heads up - Cabela's Sale in US.

    Just a quick heads up.

    Cabela's are having a great sale including their wool trousers.

    Worth a look because at that price they are worth getting shipped over.

    I ordered a couple of pairs of trousers, the whole bill, including carriage and duty, cost me less than I was considering paying for just one pair of wool tweeds in this country.
    It looks like this sale has just addressed the last gap in my outdoor clothing system.

    Mmm, Mackinaw field pants! Very nice but still pricey. Those ones you linked are a real bargain at that price. Let us know what you think when you get them please Gary. Cabela's is a great shop, I wish they had one over here.

    I suspect the sale will be over by the time I get them.

    They are well spoken of over on the Winter Trekking forum though.

    OK, they are back on sale.

    Not quite as cheap but still a good deal.

    Mine are winging their way, but I'm sure they will be away for a month until 'Santa brings them'.

    Thanks for the link.

    Wayland, just a side note from this thread, but Dri Duck is a pretty excellent brand and they do canvas boulder cloth bib and brace, they will be allot more hardwearing than wool ones http://www.driduck.com/catalog/partd...artNo=6076-PLM they have a serious reputation for hardwearing workwear!!

    It's not hard wearing I'm necessarily after, It's the "warm while wet" properties of wool I want.

    I have mine on (lucky me didn't have to wait for santa).

    Very impressed, both by the troosers and the service.

    Hmmm... Mine still haven't turned up yet.

    I might have to drop them an e-mail I think.

    Did they not email you a link to the tracking number when they dispatched?

    No the only thing I have is a temporary order reference.

    I sent them an e-mail last night and I haven't had a reply back yet.

    I have sent 6 e-mails and not had a reply.

    I have a very nasty feeling I'm not going to get these.

    I ordered on 18/11

    I ordered two pairs with International Enhanced Shipping and then put the heads up on here.

    Everything seemed fine, I received an e-mail from the credit card clearing company with a temporary reference number and I waited for confirmation from Cabelas, which never came.

    I tried to contact customer services from the link supplied by the clearing company but received no reply. I tried contacting them directly but again no reply.

    I looked at the online catalogue again and discovered that the price had doubled while this was going on and reordering them at the new price would make the shipped price to the UK less reasonable. So I tried to e-mail again. Still no reply.

    Getting suspicious at this stage I e-mailed a separate enquiry, on a different e-mail account in my partners name. I received a reply from them in just over three hours.

    I sent my original enquiry by the same e-mail account and guess what, no reply.

    Shortly after this I did receive a reply from one of my earlier e-mails which said they were having some system problems but still no update on my order status. I replied to that, no answer.

    Since then numerous e-mails but still no reply.

    Very disappointing I’m afraid.

    Just received an e-mail that basically said we've passed your e-mail to another department and they'll get back to you in 5-7 days.

    Is it just me? .

    My word. This is a shocker.

    I had three prices from them during my transaction so asked a few questions. They were fast and helpful every time - my trousers, although a little rough on the inner thigh, are great.

    Thanks for your heads up - I hope you are sorted soon.

    Well, I just received an e-mail saying they are now out of stock of the size I ordered and unable to supply.

    Ho Hum...
