After receiving a customs receipt from FedEx and a complaint regarding the cost the nice FedEx employe told me that the actual shipping cost was lower than the 65,-$ Bongo claimed and the customs cost therefore would be lower if the right price for shipping had been counted in.
It seems that Bongo is doubling the actual shipping cost to hide the real cost for their service which in this case is about 45,-$!!!!!!!

Bongo calculated the dim weight of my ThetaSV GoreTex Pants with 20x16.5x4.5 in which was 65,-$ for shipping alone, with Handling fees from Bongo it was 80,-$.
The actual package that I received was 13x11.5x2.5 in, a Medium Box from Fedex. When you calculate the actual size on the Duty and Tax calculator on the BongosUS site the shipping is 34,-$, with Bongos Handling it should be 50,-$ max. That is simply a rip off!
BongUS has no service at all. I've tried to call the service number: +1 203-683-4894, regardless when I called, the answering machine always told me that I'm calling outside the operating hours. The service email provided withe the customer registration email: Support@BongoUS.com only generates an auto reply: Hello from Bongo International,
