Living In The UK And Buying Gear From New Enough In The States

I’m on NewEnough.Com‘s mailing list even though I live here in the UK and was wondering how the cost of buying something from them and getting it shipped here to the UK would pan out.. So I’ve just checked and these are my findings with one style of ladies jacket.

The jacket in question is this one..  Click on the photos to be taken to their website

Joe Rocket Yamaha Branded Gear Women’s Luv Textile Jacket


Here are the specs on it..

  • Hitena® textile shell
  • C.E. rated protectors in shoulders and elbows
  • Removable spine pad with pocket for optional C.E. spine protector
  • Variable Flow™ ventilation system
  • Removable insulated vest liner
  • Sure Fit™ adjustable waistband
  • 8” zipper for pant attachment
  • Reflective stripe
  • Official licensed Yamaha® product
The retail price for the jacket is $229.99 but it’s on sale at $149.99 at the moment which works out at about £98!  ($/£ conversion rates will of course be subject to change) Shipping to the UK would be $59.58 (£38.81) which isn’t bad considering what’s being sent.  So for approximately £140 you can get one shipped here.
Why am I doing this?  Well, I like to be an individual and not have the same gear as anyone else, and condsidering Joe Rocket gear is barely sold in the UK what better way of standing out from the crowd than wearing something which isn’t seen about much here..
There’s one other consideration for me though….. I rather like that jacket 😉

    This is a very good jacket line. I have a Joe Rocket jacket. I like the way they fit, even with my old man gut. I think the shipping is only going to be a matter of, “how long it will take”, not likely to be a real big problem.
