I'm looking for some Howard Leight Max 33db disposable ear plugs. Does anyone know what stores carry these? I stopped at a little country pharmacy last year and bought a pack and they work great. They no longer carry them and searching google hasn't turned up any retailers. Amazon has 'em kinda cheap but I don't need 200 pairs. I ALWAYS wear ear protection when I ride. If anyone knows of a retailer- please post.

Thanks-Bob

Looks like you might have to go big and get the box!

It's looking that way!! I wouldn't mind a 100 pairs but 200 !! They will deteriorate before I use them all. I'm going to check some small pharmacies around here tomorrow. I've tried all different kinds and these work the best for me. The search continues..

Maybe you could sell the extra sets on here?

Vic Mackey's EarPlug Emporium! It has a ring to it, huh?

Probably need a warehouse to store the extras.

I just found a site that sells 5 pair packs for $3.95 so I know smaller quantities are available. I'm going to call the place I bought them from last year to see if they could order me a couple of these. I think they were only like $1.99. It will give me an excuse to ride there again- It's near a beautiful lake so I guess I can sacrifice my time and pick them up .

You could also offer some for free here. That's what I did after I bought a box of 200 E.A.R plugs. BTW, I got mine on ebay. Just a tip for you.

25 pair for 8 bucks (+ shipping) at Aerostich. You should easily be able to find other things in that catalog to justify the shipping fees.

Mua ha haaa ...

earplugstore.com sells by the tens as well as by the hundreds. They also sell some interesting samplers. You're lucky if you just bought some plugs and they worked for you.

I use a lot of earplugs. I'm using Hearos, NR 33 right now.

There was another brand I used to buy from Walgreens for years --- purple ones --- they changed their plastic foumula recently. I just bought a box and they didn't work ( they won't stay compressed long enough to get them in ). The ear plug store is a very good resource.

I just bought a 200-count box of Howard Leight Max-Lite earplugs--the green ones. The box cost $19+shipping and isn't very big.

Go pure luxury and use a fresh pack for every ride and they won't last too long.

PM me if you want some of my pack--shipping shouldn't be too much.
