USPS FIRST CLASS MAIL DOES NOT GUARANTEE DELIVERY. It is the most affordable and does not require scanning for tracking with no insurance. We will not be responsible for lost/missing packages. Currently, we will not be offering USPS First Class option due to lost/missing packages in relation to COVID-19. Please review shipping details below.
[ Due to COVID-19, estimated delivery timelines may be delayed.
We've noticed delays with scanning and delivering packages with USPS. We assure you that when you receive the tracking email that the package is dropped off the same day. Please be patient with shipping updates and deliveries.

Although we support USPS, considering the current delays and adjusted policies, we recommend shipping with UPS for a more secure and timely delivery; especially if you're working with a timeline or located outside of the USA. Please review the details below.
The shipping option you choose upon checkout will display an estimated delivery time once your bag is made and shipped. This is not an estimated production time which varies for each product and takes about 2+ weeks to hand make your bag if it is not in stock. If an item is in stock, you will see "[#] item(s) left" underneath the drop down menu and will ship by the next business day. Once your bag ships, you will receive an email with tracking info.
We deliver all of our packages personally to the post office by Cargo-Bike to do everything we can to ensure that your package is delivered. We are not responsible for packages after transferring them to the shipping company. It is up to the shipping company and your country's postal service to then deliver your package to the address you provided accordingly to the shipping option you chose.
Recently, we started shipping with UPS to offer our customers better deals and shipping services; especially when it comes to international orders.
Information on UPS International Shipments
- Please include your phone number when you place your order so that UPS can contact you. We will not be responsible if a package is returned due to missed delivery attempts.
- Customers are responsible for covering their orders' import duties/fees. We are sorry to say but we're unable to cover any import duties or fees that may occur during your order's transit to its destination.
- UPS may hold your package at customs for further inspection. While we cannot control how long your package is in customs, rest assured knowing that all of the necessary paperwork, including customs declarations and product invoices have all been filled out correctly and is attached to the outside of the package for easy access by customs/border agents.
UPS international is much more reliable than the USPS international. If you're in a time crunch, please do not risk it with the shipping service. We have seen USPS hold international packages at the border for weeks without any explanation. We have no way of controlling this, and it is up to the discretion of the USPS and your country's customs and postal service as to how quickly your package moves through customs. To increase your delivery time, we strongly suggest that international customers use UPS as their shipping service.
