The quick and dirty is that I will deffinitly be doing business with STG, especially Jason, again. Way more friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful than the local shop, and I don't get the vibe that STG is here to rip me off like I do at the local shop. The deal was better than anything else I could find, the service was perfect, and everything came in ahead of schedule with no surprises. Very happy indeed.
Responded to my pm within the day, but was busy the next day so I just called him to place my order. Super nice on the phone, very relaxed, and incredibly helpful. Created the invoice super fast and I was off the phone in literally 10 minutes.
True to form, Jason got me a sweet deal on some 2011 A* S-MX Plus boots, and even advised me to go one euro size smaller based on their experiences with the boots. Also a nice break on a pair of Scorpion Invasion pants, and to make up for having to play by the rules with my Knox Biomech gloves, I got a nice STG shirt. I also got some sizing advice on the gloves as well.
Overall, Jason made ordering almost too easy - I'm starting to see how so many mention STG "taking" a good chunk of their income
-Shipping and Packaging
Got the email for FedEx tracking number. Shipped out of Michigan thursday, got to my front door (Nebraska) today (Saturday) around 10am. Jason even said it would be here tuesday given the whole weekend-does-not-equal-business-day thing (which is the norm) so I am very excited I got everything today!
Packaging was great, all the gear had no damage, blah, blah, blah
The best part is the fact that, because I listened to Jason's advice on sizing, everything fits perfectly. His advice was also consistent with the video reviews on their site, which amazed me - its hard to find such consistency within a business these days - around here at least.
