    Rare when people admit a little bit of an overreaction, especially on the internet. I commend that. However, I'd suggest editing your original post with this just so there are no misinterpretations. And I suggest actually trying out LeisurePro by buying an item or two and then making a more informative decision on its quality. I've only heard good things, and any problems have been resolved quickly.

    This whole thing could have been avoided if the OP had done the smart thing and forgotten about a dumb jacket BC in the first place, and bought a BP/W.

    Hehe....worst hi-jack ever. Flame away!

    BTW, the BP-on-a-backpack idea is very clever, but looks a bit too much like a parachute to me. Imagine getting on a plane and the guy sitting next to you is wearing a parachute. How's that make you feel? :D

    Being the trusting individual that I am not, this is the best response IMO. I often think that people really do believe that if it is on the web, it is true. False advertisements, websites, emails......everything is so simple to fake now that you really need to be careful what you click. I rarely click links in emails, almost never on FB......there is no way to guarantee they are legit. At least an ad on SB required SB to install/link.

    EDIT

    I have removed my on topic paragraph because I now see that the OP has had a change of heart.

    I have ordered maybe $1,000 or so worth of gear from Leisurepro during the years and never had any problem. If something is out of stock when you order it they will honor the price when it is in stock. Also your credit card will not be billed until it is shipped. If they do not have the older item then, as others mentioned, you get a newer item at the same price.
