NYC BC Store

Hi guys,

I'm going to be in NYC this weekend and I was wondering if there is a store there that you may know of that sells backcountry stuff there? Stuff in the US tends to be a lot cheaper than in the US.

Cheers,

So many runs so little time.

REI sells backcountry gear for sure. They have stores in Jersey. I think winter stuff is going out at their locations.

Otherwise, if you are looking for backcountry specific gear, like packs, beacons, poles,probes, shovels, find a local mountaineering shop. Pretty much your best bet for that type of gear. Hence the REI recommendation.

I also forgot about EMS, since they closed all their shops around here. They are still a big presence on the east coast. Similar to REI, just not as big of an organization. Looks like they have locations in NYC and beyond.

Thanks KC. REI is opening a store in SOHO in November which would have been sweet. Don't think I will get off the island as I am only there a couple of days. EMS has a store on Broadway though so I will check that one out for sure.

Thanks again.

Yeah EMS is your best bet but I cannot help but comment on the irony of the subject line.
