I know this was awhile ago but I would be a bit surprised if Simms is "endorsing" sale at Costco. They have been typically very pro dealer. Chances are that Costco got ahold of the bags second hand (over stock or some other blown deal) and turned them over. I've seen Costco do that a lot in the past - I used to work at a bike shop in Portland and one year they were selling a bunch of fairly nice Trek full suspension bikes; for like half price. The local dealer (not us, we didn't deal Trek) threw a fit and Trek was able to get them pulled from the store... but not after a bunch were sold. Not ironically they weren't set up right so purchasers would bring them into the local shop to get them fixed (many expecting it for free, you know cause it said Trek on the sign outside). I think it's more likely a Costco shenanigan then a Simms thing.
