when did the price jump to six figures? I can remember paying $65, annoyed when it went to $85, now it's $119? somehow even 20% off an inflated price doesn't impress.

We hear you. This is one of our favorite products, and the price has become unbearable for many of our customers. Sigvaris has raised the price of the 500 series for the past 10 years straight. We are very sorry, but they set the price. These are made in Switzerland, and the price for importing them has gone up.
