Our initial plan, held steady for months, was to ship at the end of October. We ran into some quality issues with the new packaging last week at the QC inspection, so we've had no choice but to delay the shipments. We expect to get them on Nov 9th (if all goes well on the QC inspection of both the bands and the packaging on Oct 30th), after which time we'll ship them out as quickly as possible to the backlog of pre-orders.
As you can see in the image below, the pictures of the band are mis-aligned, so we couldn't accept it. While it may seem like a small issue, this is an example of the lengths we go to to make sure we deliver a very high quality product, even if it's "just the packaging". Admittedly there's a small typo on the back and we'll need to fix that on the next order.
Thanks for your patience and understanding everyone!
