Ok, I have some guy from the uk named dave bugging the hell out of me to use some kind of bag called a m-bag. What is this and how do I do it. do I buy it or rent it or what. He acts like I know what the hell I am doing. :D

I have seen several posts on the forum from those in the UK who swear by them. They seem to be strong bags that hold a good amount of boxes, or packages and cost little more than normal packing would, but they hold up very well to the usual "across the pond" shipping abuse by the mail system. As far as I know they are only offered in the UK.

Here is a link to a previous topic that turned into a discussion on M-bags.  Several others gave me advice on what they were: (I think the discussion turns around the fifth post)

have a quick look here
The page cannot be found

I have used them quite regularly, they are actual mail bags, printed matter only, cheap as chips to send large quantities overseas (in fact cheaper for people to send stuff from the states to me that from somewher in Australia!).. however it takes a long time (by sea) for example about 3 moths for something to get to me from the states, although I have seen quicker for smaller packages... and I hear that they had  quite a shortage of bags as lots of packages have gone back to the "home country" I have quite a collect of them, they are very tough and useful;)

The only time i used m-bags was for cougar, since he wouldnt let up on it.  It definately is cheaper but its also a big pain in the ass.  i should have added a $10 handling fee.   :x
