Where to buy a Fatboy Hammock aka Fatboy Headdemock

I'm trying to buy one from somewhere outside CH that will send it here. Worst case scenario will collect from a border town.

It's this http://www.fatboyusa.com/fatboy-headdemock.cfm

Anyone know of anywhere? All the sites I'm finding will not ship here.

Do you specifically want a Fatboy or just something similar? We ordered one from these guys in Germany a while back and found they were very good to deal with. You could also try ebay.de as a few of them ship to CH.

Otherwise your Fatboy can be found here in CH

Re: Where to buy a Fatboy Hammock aka Fatboy Headdemock

Did you try the FatBoy "locator" feature on their website and then contact the stores listed to see if they carry that item and/or can send it to you?
http://www.fatboy.com/locator/

It even lists a store in CH that carries it............................

Re: Where to buy a Fatboy Hammock aka Fatboy Headdemock

Ended up buying one in Konstanz for 40% CHEAPER than in CH.

The price seems to be fixed on a per country basis.

That saving includes the tax back with a green form which you'll need to get stamped at the border. The shop I bought it from helpfully split the cost out for 'frame' and 'hammock' thus meaning it was under the personal limit

Hi, I'm looking to get one of these and wondered if you could tell me what the final price you paid was.
Cheers.

Re: Where to buy a Fatboy Hammock aka Fatboy Headdemock

We ordered ours from Finnish Design Shop as it was a lot cheaper to order it from there than to buy it from CH. They also provide free international shipping to your home door - or at least back then they did.

Re: Where to buy a Fatboy Hammock aka Fatboy Headdemock

The 40% cheaper includes the tax back - with of course nothing to pay coming in to CH as it was 2 items with each one being below the threshold.

Given the incredibly weak EUR right now, it'll be a bargain.

If memory serves me correctly 389EUR less 19% tax = 319 EUR at today's rates = 343 CHF vs 585 (was 689 or so)

I note the price on amazon.de has dropped so you may find they have been generally reduced (prices seem to be the same for all stores in any given country)
