Any Canadian who ordered Jimmy's pack received their packs yet? I am in Canada and have ordered one, but I just want to know about how much custom duty you pay for your packs? Thanks.

The shipping is surprisingly fast, I believe Jimmy shipped it out on Monday and it arrived on Thursday of the same week. Fedex did not charge me anything for custom duty, and I do not see any paper said they'll charge me for anything. But I do have previous experience that Fedex may send me a bill after a month, so I am still waiting to see.

But other than that, everything seems very smooth receiving the pack. I hope that I don't have to pay anything for custom, but have too much hope because no one can predict what the Canadian custom would do, it's all depends on the weather, the sun and the moon, and the mood of the officers in charge.

i need to know before orders are placed cause it all depends on profit vs. cost.

Nope, nothing from Fedex, so I am assuming I don't have to pay custom for this shipment. And if you are 'lucky' enough, you may find an item which got damaged while being shipped and you can file a damage claim to Fedex. In my pack, Fedex had damaged the largest picture frame so I filed a damage claim. They took the frame for investigation, then according to Jimmy (they have to sent the claim payment to the shipper, the Fedex rep said), they compensate $60 for the damaged frame and Jimmy is sending the check to me. So, before I even start selling the pack, I had already got 1/3 of my cost covered because of that damaged frame. But don't count on that, this could just be my one time luck.

Hope this help.
