Hm, I just checked out like normal, and it said my item would ship within 30 days.

They've shut down preorders as of this AM. Either they have already sold out of their currently allocated stock or something else is going on

The usual Euro companies are either giving delivery 15 Nov 2017 or in 170 days.

Sounds like someone at REI pushed the button too early...

I got my order in during the window it was possible. Sure does look like it was a mistake for the website to offer it with the "30 days 'til shipping" message. It'd be nice to get a revo within a month so I can fool around with it, but since they don't charge until it ships, it's not the worst thing in the world if I have to wait until November or later.

I think REI made a mistake and put the preorder up too early.

I placed my preorder yesterday and when I check my order status it still shows as backorder/preorder shipping within 30 days.  If it was a mistake they haven't addressed it on the back end or sent out any woopsie we screwed up emails yet.

Oh man, looks like the pre-orders sold out! When I ordered it, there was a pre-order now button, doesn't seem to be anything there anymore. I hope to god this means that they sold out of pre-orders and not that there's been an unknown delay to my favorite piece of vaporware.

edit: lol, didn't realize there was a second page. sorry for the pointless post.

It appears that at this moment REI does not have any for preorder.  It says "Come back soon."

At least I'm not only one who didn't notice the second page

Kevin I'll buy your preorder spot for $150 - it doesn't seem like you're that excited about yours

Too late, we spent the money on a weekend in Tahoe. I'll just have to get back in line along with everyone else.

Sounds like a decision well made.

Call REI's customer service line to make a purchase.  I just did this, and even though it says it is sold out and unavailable on the webstore, you can still place an order for it over the phone.  Mine will ship to me on September 3rd, the day that REI is getting them in stock.  According to REI, it will be delivered to me no later than September 12th with free shipping.  The customer service rep. seemed very confident about those dates, so I'm willing to bet that I will receive it in a timely fashion.

Considering how the vergo is one let down after another, I sure hope this is true!

Just got a email from REI stating it is on back order.   

Bill Shubert · · Lexington, MA · Joined Jul 2012 · Points: 55

I got an email the other day saying that after 30 days my order will be cancelled if not shipped. I logged in and left a message to please keep the order open. Got a response today that included this:

I have updated the order to request extended backorder status beyond 30 days. The Wild Country Revo Belay Device has an estimated delivery date of September 12, 2017. The item will be shipped as soon as it becomes available. Please keep in mind that this is an estimated time frame and is subject to change.

So REI seems to think they'll have it in a couple weeks. I hope so!

Ordered mine by phone today and REI rep told me shipping Sept. 3. I'll be delighted if I get it before December!
