Does the new box have thinner walls, less stiff?

Does it still have the good padding inside?

Old blf gt came in two boxes.. new blf gt came in one box..

I wish lumintop will ship in two boxes or use one strong box.

The GT was always shipped in 1 box, I have no idea why you got one shipped in 2 boxes.

The new box to my eye looks like the same box except that it was shipped around the world without protection and is beat up now.

The new box box simply more worn or is it made differently?

I think Newlumen meant the early batches were ‘double boxed.’

I was fortunate to get my GT in December 2017. It was a box inside another box.

Ah, yeah that is how they sent the first shipments but now they are just using the single box.

Yeah… all mine were double boxed too from the GB. But the padding inside is what’s important. If the box holds together long enough to keep the padding & contents together, and safely delivered…. that is what counts.

I don’t blame LT for eliminating the outer box….. it was basically an unnecessary expense.
