Amazon's ridiculous packing methods...

If you have ever ordered anything from Amazon.com, you probably know that they aren't exactly judicious in how they attempt to save packing material.  I have recieved some doozys before, but today's took the cake.

I ordered a new umpiring chest protector last week.  It showed up on my doorstep.

I have included a shoe to show scale. I wear about a size 10.

Silly, right?

I open it up, and this is what I see:

I honestly couldn't believe that they had sent me this huge box for something that could have been easily rolled up into a small box.  I am sure that they have been called to the carpet many times for this one, but I just can't seem to understand why they continue to do it!

For comparison, this is the chest protector on top of the box, to show wasted space.
