Picking up a bunch of new gear this year for both me and the gf. In the past I've just walked into shops and bought whatever I found off the racks that worked. This time around we've done some browsing on the various manufacturers' websites and picked out some stuff that we really like.
Now, I don't expect to walk in the door of RMS (if they were open) or where ever and find these exact items hanging on the rack in the right sizes.
It would be *easiest* for me to just order the stuff online cause I can do that while sitting on the couch with a beer watching Simpsons re-runs.
I'd love to support local business, but trekking around to all the various stores trying to track down these things isn't my idea of a great time. Are stores able to order in specific items?
If it matters, I'm looking for these items:
We'll also be looking for new gloves for both and boots for me, but I'm undecided on which model I want yet. And the gloves I figure will be easy enough to find locally.
