WOOH! Finally. My Sail Away pants arrived yesterday.
I viewed my tracking to see what had happened within the 16 days it took for this purchase to actually reach me. They were in “Pre-shipment” from August 7 – August 22. Once they were accepted at the USPS Origin Facility in Anaheim, California, the package only took 2 days to reach my doorstep in upstate New York. Needless to say, I’m disappointed with that 15 day period where my package just sat in Pre-shipment and my emails went unanswered.
Meanwhile, I emailed ZuVi twice and still have yet to hear back. So, ZuVi needs to work on their customer service. This was not a pleasant process.
On the upside, I will say that I LOVE THESE PANTS. I was worried about their comfort due to the fact that they are made from plastic bottles, but WOW. These are some of the most comfortable clothes I have ever worn.
The clothing line takes yarn that was made from recycled plastic bottles and mixes it with spandex. The ratio is 16% spandex and 84% recycled PET.
I wore them to yoga this morning and they felt so weightless and so flexible that I barely remembered I was wearing anything at all. In addition, I received so many compliments already!
There were also an free pare of Blue Crush Shorties which are sold in their store for $38 (same price as my Sail Away pants). I’m not sure if this was an addition due to the shipping problems or what, but, I’m not complaining.
All in all, I love my purchase because the pants are eco-friendly, comfortable and fashionable. They’re more expensive than I usually spend but definitely a great investment as I know I will wear them often.
