Can I buy Gear off EVIKE?

I'm looking for a few pieces of tactical gear (chest rig, knee and elbow pads) and I'm wondering if I can order (just clothing) off EVIKE? They do technically ship to Canada, and yes I understand that guns will be seized at the border once they search the package, but if all I'm ordering is clothing, should it be a problem? Will they seize that as well?

well yes but i'm pretty sure evike has a reputation for screwing over customers.

all clothing/gear is fine though aside from a few brands that are restricted for export in the US (but that only comes into account if ordering from the states)

Alright, so a general rule is that border guards will let gear over the border then?

Evike appears to be taking their sweet ass time with International Orders.

Apparently they haven't caught up with their holiday rush still and every international order is shipped every WED (had a huge dispute with them about my orders taking over a month).

After you make the initial payment you wait about a week for a shipping quote. After that you wait another week so they can authenticate that your payment is good (usually takes 10 days) then the following wed. they send it from their inventory to the shipping facility.. then wait a few more days to a week for your product to be shipped out.

Took me about a month to get something from them... and I'm still waiting for my 2nd order and it's been 1 month, 1 week and 2 days still waiting for them to get my order shipped out to me.


Evike is a living hell to deal with. Never going to buy anything from them again. My orders from Asia come in a lot faster than they can move the product with-in their own facilities.

Evike is evil. Don't deal with them.

I'd trust EBBanned over Evike TBH.....

Anyways, if you're not particular on the brand or whatever you can find stuff at your local surplus store as well if you're trying to avoid buying from Asia. Otherwise Redwolf, Ehobby, and such carry gear and parts that will get past customs but DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ORDER GUNS OR PROHIBITED PARTS (Receiver, pistol frames, and prohibited length slides (apparently), also note that clear mags (with faux bullets in them) should be fine but the package will get really scrutinized so best not to order those from outside Canada).

If you're fine with clone stuff AirsoftPark is quite good and I've done 3 successful orders through them already.
