Running FLAT CAT GEAR is a blast.  I love creating product, getting feedback from my customers and I really like coming up with solutions that will make backpacking more enjoyable.  One day, I may retire and commit all of my time to FLAT CAT GEAR.  That being said, it is extremely difficult to do this job for a living.  Thankfully, I also have a regular job which I enjoy as well.  For the next few months, my day job will be requiring more of my time and work on FLAT CAT GEAR will be limited.   I fully expect to ship orders within 2-3 weeks after receiving them.  I thank you for your patience and understanding.  Best regards – Jon
