    Review for Snowinn.com

    Bottom line up front: I had no issues. It appears I may be the only one on the internet with such luck.

    I searched and didnít see anything too recent for snowinn.com without getting deep into any threads. Iím writing this because I ordered a thing from them that is VERY popular with the TGR crowd at an incredibly cheap price (Iím being cryptic so I donít fuck up a phenomenal deal for the collective...I think I payed quite a bit less than MAP), and only looked at Snowinnís reviews after I clicked purchase because, well, Iím an idiot.

    Snowinnís online reviews are so bad that I assumed I had just set $370 on fire. Didnít even get mad, just came to terms with the fact the money is gone. Theyíre located in Europe so people have issues with customs, shipping, the language barrier, and they have virtually no customer support as per the feedback thatís out there. If something gets fucky, then thatís probably a wrap for your order and money. Seriously, read the reviews for yourself before ordering.

    The tracking number I received didnít do a great job of providing updates, but this isnít uncommon with international orders. I, however, got my package in one piece. I ordered on Dec 8 and it arrived on Dec 26. Pretty good for international shipping during the holidays if you ask me. I was legitimately surprised the box showed up at all.

    Hopefully this helps someone out there. Thought Iíd leave this out of the feedback thread since itís a company.

    I’ve ordered from them a couple times with good luck. Think of them like an outdoor Amazon where multiple retailers use a single retail portal. I think it depends on the actual retailer. Don’t be in a hurry and expect less than great customer support, but sometimes they’re hundreds cheaper than anywhere else. I’ve got some bindings in the mail right now so we’ll see how my most recent order goes.

    Pretty sure I know which item you purchased. The manufacturer prohibits shipping of their product to the US from international sellers, so you are on your own if you need warranty service.

    I've had great results with a few pairs of bindings from there over the last few years. Recently ordered the gf new boots and they're taking pretty long and the tracking sucks...we'll see if it's worth it when they arrive.
    It sucks to suck.

    Bought Dynafit Vulcans from Snowinn a few years back and some Solly hiking boots from Trekkinn this past summer. Smokin' deal prices, reasonable shipping times, no dick around issues with either purchase. 10/10.

    Nailed it, and thatís a risk I suppose Iím willing to take. Hereís hoping they donít need a warranty claim...

    Edit to add that item quickly moves here used (i.e., no warranty) for around $50 more than I paid shipped and new, so I feel a little better about my impulse purchase. I guess.

    Cool. Thanks for the update. I took the same plunge, but ordered mine on the 12th, so by your math I should be seeing them shortly (which is good, because I purchased them for an upcoming trip). Planning to move mine after my trip so not concerned with warranty.

    Same experience with purchase of a pair of Plum Guides last season.

    A bit wanting on tracking updates, and as I recall, about 10-14 days for delivery to Colorado, but they arrived, and that's what counts.

    Speed rads. 6-7 week shipping, in the summer. That was in 2016 and I'm still skiing on them.

    Ordered some bindings back in November. When I ordered they said would be delivered December 11-14. Still waiting.

    I ordered two sets of the M-Werks Kingpins at ~50% off from them back at the end of November. They sent me an email saying they'd shipped about a week after I'd ordered them and to expect them sometime in the middle of December. Looking at the shipping info on the Post NL site, it was pretty obvious they took a lonnngggg time to ship the bindings after that initial shipping confirmation email. Eventually, they did ship, and I received them this week (probably 7 weeks after I ordered them and was told I'd have them in a little more than a week). I guess I'm happy they actually arrived, but I definitely wouldn't believe their shipping times.

    I bought a pair of jesters from them a few years ago. Shipped from Spain and arrived in Idaho in 4 days. It was impressive to say the least.
