Where is my Hot Weather Uniform?
We have experienced very high demand and a reduction in production from Honduras, causing a delay in fulfillment. We are receiving shipments every week for the remaining part of the year. We are shipping customer purchases in the order in which they are received, and have upgraded all orders to the fastest shipping method possible free of charge as a token of our appreciation.
If you ordered Crye Precision items:
Crye Precision, located in New York, shifted production to PPE's during the Coronavirus crisis so that they could provide front line workers much needed supplies.
Though some Crye Precision items are available, our new website unintentionally allowed orders for other items that were not in stock. We have since updated our site to reflect our current inventory. We will upgrade your order to the fastest shipping method once your items are available, however, delivery date is unknown at this time.
If You Ordered Condor Products:
Due to the Coronavirus, production in China was significantly reduced. We are now receiving regular shipments from Condor, and will upgrade your order to the fastes shipping method once your items are available.
If You Ordered Nike Boots:
Nike quarantined all incoming shipments to its distributors (like US Patriot) as a way to reduce exposure to the Coronavirus. Nike is now releasing these shipments and we are now fulfilling purchases in the order in which they were received.
If the order confirmation email you received does not match your purchase:
Please login and verify the order details. There was a temporary technical glitch that sent order confirmation emails containing the wrong size/color, although your order was processed correctly.
If you ordered and expected to receive your shipment in 24/48 hours:
Due to many factors, we can no longer process orders in 2 days. We are no longer offering expedited shipping options due to our backlog of orders. We are fulfilling orders as fast as possible and upgrading all orders during this period to the fastest shipping method possible for no additional charge.
If you ordered body armor, riot gear, or plate carriers:
With the recent social unrest and increased demand, fulfillment of these items has been difficult. Please know that we are working very hard to ship these products as fast as possible.
If you cannot access your online account with us:
With the lauch of our new site, all account passwords have been reset. US Patriot sent an email to reset your password - if this email was deleted or sent to spam you can access your account by following these steps:
