Today is an exciting day for Recon and our pre-order customers. I can confirm that Jet is now in production, and the first units are scheduled to ship from our San Jose, California manufacturer on March 30.
Initial shipments will be sent to Recon’s distribution centers in the United States and Europe for onward dispatch to each of our pre-order customers. Fulfilling your orders is our #1 priority; orders for retailers and distributors will be addressed only after pre-order demand has been satisfied. First units will begin to arrive in customers’ hands on or before April 16. Orders will be shipped on a “first come, first served” basis. I expect all pre-orders to have shipped from the manufacturer by the end of April.
As a special thank you to everyone who pre-ordered, I’ve decided to ship pre-orders with a free spare battery as well as both clear and meteor gray polarized lenses. The clear lens is perfect for low light conditions, and the spare battery swaps in easily to make sure you have plenty of juice for extra-long activities. (After pre-orders ship, the clear lens and battery will be available for $60 USD and $70 USD, respectively.)
Thank you to everyone who has believed in the Jet project. I’m confident you will be pleased with the end result. As always, you can reach me at DanEis@reconinstruments.com with any comments or questions. I’ll do my best to respond promptly.
