Thread: Canada gear/$

  1. #1

    Default Canada gear/$

    I was doing a search for new gear and happened to glom onto a Canada outdoor gear shop and couldn't get over how cheap the prices were compared to here in the US. Currently the US $ is worth more than Canada so I guess it makes sense. I was wondering if anyone is aware of any trustworthy Canada mountaineering shops that my have great deals and are willing to ship to the US? I bought an Arcteryx backpack in Canada (where they manufacture them) many years ago and it was about 20% cheaper than the same pack bought in the US. Thanks!

    Default New Zealand or Elsewhere?

    I just looked at the US $ and it is even better in New Zealand. It may be fairly expensive to ship that far and I'm not sure if additional taxes, etc apply?

    MEC is a good backpacking store there is conflicting information that they are anti-hunting the choice is yours if you want to shop their.
    Their product break down will say on the item if they can ship outside of Canada or not.
