    Straps coming from Italy

    Ordered 2 straps from Colareb. Order was filled in good order and sent out. Got through customs in Rome on the 18th; couple intermediate checks. On the 19th, it's showing as at the CSI, the international exchange point. Specifically: Partito del CSI. I assume that means arrived at?

    Since then, nothing.

    So...for a package from Italy to the US, I would appreciate hearing what the next couple of steps would be, and what a reasonable timeline is.

    Last time I bought a strap from Colareb I think it took a couple weeks. The customs game is very random though, one order they don't delay at all.... the next one they hold it for a month.

    It went through outbound customs, I think, in Rome, and hasn't hit US customs yet. Or are you also, indirectly, saying that the sorting at the CSI can run rather random times?

    Anything coming out of Italy via post is always a waiting game..........

    I have a few Colareb straps and it took at least two weeks or more for them to arrive. Just have to be patient when it comes to their delivery times.

    Good luck.

    Craziness...but good craziness.

    Mid-Saturday afternoon here. Doorbell just rang.

    USPS guy. Guess what he's got for me.

    Awesome, I'm happy. But no scan updates...ah well. Now I gotta pick among the 3 straps I have, for the one to use... :)

    Pretty much hahaha! If they decide your package is the lucky winner or some random security hoo ha your delivery can take what seems like forever. Most of the time though like I and nokie said, two weeks. Glad to hear you got your straps though :D Make sure to give us some pics once you make your decision!
