    Used the strackry shipping calculator just now, a 0.5kg 6x6x6 inch box is $30 but will take a month!!

    Free to the US. The cheapest shipping option from the US is USPS which is around $40 - the reshipping options are somehow cheaper (I guess they ship large containers at a time), but I went via a friend as I was wary of big customs fees using the Irish mail forwarder

    I was wondering about the shipping from US to IE (or UK) for an item that size?

    When you buy something from a US company how do you know what size packet it will come in and how do you know what the re-shipper will charge before you buy?

    You can't (unless you ask) but addresspal go via weight.

    Well, you don't know what size is the original parcel, unless you use Amazon which has the measurements in the description. If you have that information, there's a shipping calculator on Stackry website to give you an estimate.

    Reshipper offers also repackaging service, which minimises the wasted space in packages. For example, I've bought something from Amazon US which I assume comes in a box. They open the box and pack it in a tight shipping bag saving volume & weight.

    Hang on one sweet moment. Rothko’s sunrise has been replaced by a blue devil. What’s happening to The @edh that we knew?

    Bit off the mark with the UL description.... the 22L is even further from UL unless the removable snowboard loops are steel chains and shed at least 400g :D
