I haven't. I haven't heard when they might ship them, either.

Gerald?

Yes. I received mine a couple of months ago. Since each is personalized with your call and name, they probably go out as made.

Yes. My jacket was packed in the box that my 6700 was shipped in. It looks very good and is well made.

Mine arrived a week or so after the radio.

Might be best if someone is missing part of their order (like a 6700 jacket) that they directly contact FlexRadio Systems.

My jacket arrived separately (with my radio being #11 jackets may not have been ready when the radio shipped.)

No, I haven't received mine yet either. I have called and emailed FRS multiple times and the latest status they gave me was they are waiting on their jacket and embroidery vendors.

I first contact them about this almost two months ago.

Not an untypical cycle for "pride-wear." Would think these are being run in batches.

When my firm buys jackets/hats/clothing, we often have to wait a bit for exactly what we want, and there is often a minimum batch order.

Ball caps we can get in three weeks at a premium, 60-90 days if we want best pricing.

Ditto on other items.

I have got Flex-6700 Special Edition s/n 217. Didn't know the jacket comes along. Am I eligible for one too? If yes, how do I apply?

We have been waiting on some of the jackets from our embroidery vendor. If you purchased a Limited Edition FLEX-6700, you are illegible to receive the jacket. If you have received your radio and wish to check the status, please email virginia@flexradio.com.

Mine arrived last week; wore it to the Elmira Hamfest and received a few comments and questions about it and the 6700.
