    Default One stop for top notch...

    buy-it-once, (probably) pay-more-but-be-done, gear that will haul your load, keep you dry, do the job without wearin you out...

    Anchorage:
    1. Barney's Sports Chalet
    2. Alaska Mountaineering & Hiking
    3. McAfees vs Wideworld for fly gear

    Boondocks

    B&J Commercial
