    SmartWool Flagstaff Bibs for $7

    Saw that the deal for today at Performance.com is 15% off everything. Needing another pair of shorts, went to look. I see they have Smartwool Flagstaff bib shorts for $8, then 15% off.

    Now I know that many have very different thoughts on wool shorts. With these being a wool blend, along with the winter coming up I figure it is worth a shot to see the price. I also have never used bibs so am curious to see what the buzz there is. For $11 shipped, it was a deal I couldn't pass by. Not sure why they are so cheap, but thought I would share.

    No customer reviews on either the bibs or the jerseys. Any clue as to sizing? (I usually go one size down on bibs, and one size up on jerseys)
    Four wheels good; two wheels better.

    I ordered a couple pair. But I doubt performance will honor the price, as it has to be a input typo for their inventory/pricing system.

    Yeah, after digging around some more on these I agree with you. They have to be a price mistake

    Thanks for the heads-up. I ordered a few pairs: hope it's as good a deal as it seems to be (life experience makes me think there might be a catch).

    Ah crap. Whatever, the few extra dollars to ship to Canada is worth it if they do ship.

    Ordered 2 bibs and jersey, which has 25 SPF protection. Never had wool yet - good chance to try, if order is not a price mistake indeed and wont get cancelled.
    Thanks for the hint!

    Even if it is a price mistake, they'll honor it.. They're now marked as sold out.

    Should have ordered a second pair before I tipped you guys off... Hope there's not a reason they were so cheap. BTW there was a tracking number with my email so seems to be honored.

    Looks like they've shut down the flagstaff bib shorts. Just a heads up though, I noticed the flagstaff short sleeve jersey is available for $15.99. Ordered 2 of them and so far the order went through.

    I'm assuming mine will be cancelled. I log in and go to my account and the order isn't even there.

    Got a phone call from Performance: "price error, should have been 74.99 [or something like that], the order has been cancelled.".

    Well, at least they called instead of just sending an e-mail.
