The Clymb - is it for real?

I don't know if you guys have ever tried out The Clymb, but I have.  I signed up a while ago and recently they put some hydration packs up.  I have (well, my wife got it and I stole it when she was forced to stop running - long story) the amphipod 3 small bottle belt.  It services my needs, but I wouldn't say it exceeds it.



Here comes The Clymb to save the day.  They recently run a sale event for Ultimate Direction gear.  I wanted a belt that had ample space for my keys and phone while holding one larger bottle.

Ultimate Direction Access Hydration Waist Pack.

Now, this isn't a post about the actual hydration pack, but more about The Clymb.  I had always been a little apprehensive about the site and never really came across anything I had a strong urge to buy until now.  I was worried about price (scam?), shipping time and quality.

Price
I did what any tech savvy person would do, I googled it.  Turns out the deal they were running WAS cheaper than any other site including shipping.

Shipping
Would I get it in 5 days or 5 months?  They advertise one reason they can offer low prices is they take a little longer with shipping.  I actually got it in less than two weeks.  That works for me.

Quality
I used it for a 9 mile run and I was happy with it.  There are some issues about fit and form (I can live with them), but I got what I paid for.  The seams look to be of good quality and all the features work.

Overall I got a good deal on something I was really wanting.  I for one have bought into The Clymb and wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again!
