Boardsports are also great guys, I tend to go to them more for watersports but you're totally right about them.

I usually know exactly what I want from research e,g this specific jacket in this colour and size, and often the local shops won't have my colour or size, etc.

No insult to those two, I know that they've got a local presence too, and if I lived around them I'd shop there first. I try to give the guys near me in Toronto a chance, if they don't have it in stock then I go online.

I have no affliation with them... but I really like Backcountry.com (Dogfunk.com is the same company with different branding). Pretty good selection, free shipping on most orders, and most importantly... very very easy returns if you don't like what you bought. I particularly like the no hassle warranty returns (you just go to the website > order history > return) and they give you a pre-paid label to slap onto the box and rest happens automatically. No weeks long back and forth on the phone/emails with photos before they accept the warrant return.

They ship to Canada for most brands (some brands don't allow them to sell to Canada :P)
