    Apologies for the delayed reply. I placed the order at the end of January and it looks like I ordered enough to supply everybody through post #40. I have not received confirmation back from South Africa yet (I expect it in next 24 hours). Once I do the price will be messaged to each requestor. Delivery should be 2-4 weeks from date of confirmation. For members post 41 and beyond as long as the I can keep the cost about the same I will place a second order to take care of you. This will naturally depend on the shipping cost. Will update accordingly in the next couple days.

    I will not be soliciting payment until the shipment arrives. Its a long trip from South Africa and I do not want to deal with refunds should something happen in transit (very small chance). The shipment should arrive before the end of February. If you ordered a single bladder the cost will be $96 delivered for the 6L and $90 for the 3L. If you ordered two bladders the bladders the per bladder cost will be less since shipping is combined. Cost to Canada will be slightly more. The final cost is proportionally similar to the cost of each size - meaning that if you bought one of these OTC the 6L would only cost you around $6 more than the 3L.

    I am waiting on a response to my inquiry about a second order for those members requesting after post 41.

    Since we have many intelligent and industrious members on this forum I will go ahead and throw out a full disclosure post. The mark up for my trouble is $18. For example the cost of the 6L is $41. The cost of the int shipping, USPS, and Paypal fees total $37. Add $18 and you get $96. If any of you requesting bladders think I am out of line it is totally fine if you opt out. I do not want anyone thinking I am screwing them over.

    Makes sense to me, wondering if there are subsidized rates for higher quantities. I know a couple buddies might be interested, could be 2-4 units. Thanks

    My plan is to make another order soon to supply those who missed out. The prices for the bladders are good due to the favorable exchange rate. Purchase quantities are limited by a US government rule that states all imported shipments to the U.S. valued at $800 or under can be free of duties or taxes. I will work my way back from post 54 to 41 and verify quantities. I plan to place the order early next week so if anyone else wants in please speak up. As per the aforementioned rule I will have to keep the order under $800.

    PLEASE PAY WITH PAYPAL GOODS AND SERVICES - not friends and family or gift. Paypals algorithms would easily spot a flurry of gift payments as fraudulent.

    UPDATED first post please read. The bladders to supply the 12/4 group buy arrived yesterday. I had enough to supply everybody noted on the request list (first post in yellow). PMs have been sent. Here is the new request list. Since it is almost Spring and I am sure many of the requestors have rides planned. With this in mind I am not going to wait to order. I will order more than requested so I can take care of stragglers.
