Tired of MEC? Want gear that's old school? Are you a purist? Or are you ok with modern advancements, but it has to be quality, tried and true kit?
I can heartily recommend these 2 retailers. Great, knowledgeable staff and customer service, only tried and true items, no flavour of the month.. COE does free shipping (except for big items like tents, stoves)..
