Any good online shops out there

I'm looking to pick up some new avy gear. Are there any good online shops out there? I'm trying to find a package deal on a probe, shovel and beacon. Please let me know if you know of a good shop to pick this stuff up from. I’m in Ottawa Ontario, and no one here stocks any of this equipment.



thanks,
Greg

I got a beacon\shovel combo off of Ebay. It was a brand new BCA beacon with a free aluminum shovel and free shipping I think. Can't remember the name of the business but they shipped out of salt lake city. Also, I've gotten some gear from www.backcountry.com and have received good service from them.

Greg,

I'll second the positive review of backcountry.com, and also throw out http://www.moosejaw.com as another reputable retailer. Had very consistently positive experiences with both of these, but admittedly haven't shopped either for avie equip....

There's regrettably not much cause for keeping a shovel or beacon on-hand in Nashville, TN!

backcountry.com and moosejaw are good, try also:

mountaingear.com
altrec.com
snowleopard.com
wasatchtouring.com
backcountrysafety.com
avalanchetools.com

You can also check out the manufacturers websites like:
voile.com
life-link.com
bcaccess.com....etc...they atleast will direct you to some online dealers, some have their own stores.

Good luck.
