I was wondering, if the switch bag is left out in the rain / snow - what is the potential damage? I.e. is the system water-proof? And it appears as though if the bag is not attached to the mount, then leaving the mount uncovered during rain/snow-fall it potential hazardous?

What are your thoughts?

couldn't say for sure, but i think it's more likely to be a manufacturing capacity thing - the crowdfunder was pretty successful and they may be struggling to get those initial orders fulfilled

I ordered one of these kits back a the beginning of April.  The anticipated delivery date I was given was mid-June which was an oh well thing.  One issue is that they took the took the funds for the purchase right away instead of waiting until shipment which suprised me.  Now a few days before the shipping date for the order they send out an email delaying delivery an additional six weeks.  This doesn't inspire faith in the company or their product.  Hopefully the problem isn't that they are losing money on each unit and don't have parts and/or the funds to complete manufacuturing.
