Tragedy strikes Swiss Link

I guess the "Camp Fire" in California completely destroyed Swiss Link. This is such a tragedy; they were my go-to source for much of my preferred clothing and equipment. I am hoping they can recover. I received an email from them stating that their goal was to get back up on their feet but so much good surplus was destroyed. Much of it probably stuff that cannot be replaced.

Looks like they are indeed trying to come back from this. They are selling t-shirts to help fund their comeback. Seems kind of like a stretch but...

What a major drag!
"How we burned in the prison camps later thinking: what would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if during periods of mass arrests people had simply not sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, ham- mers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. . . . The Organs [police] would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers . . . and notwithstanding all of Stalin‘s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt." - A. Solzhenitsyn, Gulag Archipelago
