Never, ever, ever pay retail
I keep meaning to pass along a tip: Backcountry.com has a cool clearing house called www.steepandcheap.com. Here's how it works. The site sells one piece of gear at a time. Right now it's a Keen hiking shoe. When it's gone, something else is put up. The deals range from really good to screaming hot. I got a slick pair of Spy goggles for $30 (Thanks for getting those, sugar.) You can get backpacks, ski jackets, ice axes -- all for deep discounts. Here's the thing. You never know what's going to be on sale, and it can disappear quick so, as the sight says, "Act fast, 'cause once it's gone you're SOL..."
