Online Gear Outfitters (POLL)

As mentioned, we've become a Liftopia affiliate to help cover costs.

We are considering adding other companies to that list.

Please help by letting us know what online outdoor retailers you use.
The companies I buy gear from online are:
You can select up to 3 options.
You cannot change your vote after voting.
You have to vote before you can see the results.

Re: Online Gear Outfitters (POLL)

I don't buy online but my opinion is biased, since I work for an independent outdoor retail company.

Re: Online Gear Outfitters (POLL)

I'd prefer to buy local, but there aren't any stores within 50 miles of my house that sell high performance xc gear.  The places I buy from online all have brick and mortar stores:  Berkshire Outfitters, High Peaks Cyclery, WebSkis, Caldwell Sport, Boulder Nordic, Gear West.

I like the EVO website from a user's standpoint. You can also occasionally stack a coupon on an already discounted product. I like Backcountry.com too, but not as much.

Promotive and Outdoor Prolink. And I love The Clymb, but I spend too much money on there.

I've bought a ton of stuff from Sierra Trading Post over the years, always great product, great service, and pretty good prices. Bought some stuff from Backcountry.com as well, seems to be a good resource. I like Ebay and CraigsList as well, you've just got to know what you're shopping for. I'd shop local but there is no 'local' within an hour++ of my home. OGE is pretty good if I feel like a road trip. Keene Valley is just too retail for my tastes.

steapandcheap.com  Owned by Backcountry, but can have some really good deals.  I'm sure they have a "what's selling now" ad deal you could get hooked up with.

Re: Online Gear Outfitters (POLL)

This poll isn't good for me since I buy from six or so companies online alone. Maybe I have a problem, and my problem is searching for the best in deals.

Re: Online Gear Outfitters (POLL)

Small sample but so far backcountry.com and Sierra Trading Post look like reasonable choices.  Not sure how many of the votes for BC.com are really for steep and cheap.  Actually used BC.com yesterday and the online help/chat was primo.

Right now we're using Liftopia and Backcountry.com.

The Clymb is also part of network we joined.  I like the look of their ads.
