onji True about that, and Japanese customer service is the best in the world..... in my experience anyway. Pity my language skills aren't high enough to benefit that much though.

killclimbz Sweet! I am glad that worked out so well. It's far better to buy locally. You also get the customer care that you can't get from an online retailer.

onji You sir are right killclimbz, touche!

I had a look on their dealer locator and found a shop I totally forgot about (haven't been there in ages), and it's only a 10 min walk from my bloody house!

killclimbz If backcountry.com won't ship BD stuff to Japan that means BD has retailers in the country. So go the black diamonds website and check out what they have for Japan.

onji Thanks Snowolf,

I'm getting a BCA Tracker 2, shovel & probe from backcountry.com. But they won't ship Black Diamond, or K2 poles out of the States. I'm thinking about getting the Atlas 7075 3 section poles with those flip locks.

onji Thanks for all the input folks.

I've been looking on backcountry.com and the Black Diamond poles were my first choice, I like their shovel too, but I'm having difficulty finding a retailer that will ship to Japan.

My usual international retailers just to snowboard kit. Could anyone recommend a reliable online retailer with more generic BC and mountaineering stock?

HAHA When I went touring a couple weeks ago I pulled my poles out which I hadn't since July and they were covered in mold. Whoops forgot about drying them out.

killclimbz Most certainly do double as trekking poles. They also work great for whacking your partner on the head when he's being a dumbass...

Good Tip

I have about 400 miles on my black diamond collapsible poles with the flick lock system, love em and they should double as trekking poles for backpacking.
