Default Websites that ship Special Blend to Canada?

I'm just looking for one specific jacket, but I can't find any websites that will ship special blend jackets to Canada and its really frustrating. I'm looking for a 2011 Special Blend Big Stripe Stout Jacket. If anyone knows and good Canadian websites for snowboarding gear please let me know.

If you are going to find any odds are they are in this thread here http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...e-tailers.html, another option is if you have a friend or relative in the states who you can have it shipped to and then have them send it along to you.

It could be that SB is like Burton where if you are in Canada you have to order it through a Canadian shop and U.S shops are forbidden from shipping it here.

That is correct, it cannot be shipped to Canada.
You can try to personally request it from any store, and you might get lucky like chubsm did, but 99% won't do it (it's illegal if they do).
Other options would be eBay, kijiji, craigslist, this forum, and easy loungin forum. Also check any Canadian online shops (Boardroom, Freeride Boardshop, Rude Boys, The Source, Think Empire).

Ah screw it i'll just do it for you.
Pretty easy to find, just tried the biggest snowboard retailer in Canada...

Yeah, didn't know if the big B slapped the same restrictions on them that they with Burton/Analog/Red. Foursquare is under the umbrella too and I remembering some of their stuff shipping fine to Canada, could have been before they got bought up.

It's done to prevent grey marketing and protect distribution channels and give brick and mortar shops a sort of level playing field against each other and big box retailers like backcountry/dogfunk, the house etc.

Your best bet is to just find something in the current catalog year you like because as hard as it is finding out a specific out of season item in The States, with the distribution contracts it will be even more difficult. The other option is to buy it used. Check geartrade, they are a dumping ground for backcountry/dogfunk and since they have an unlimited return policy, you'll often find stuff that is essentially brand new up there but they can't sell it as new. This gets around the contract requirements. I don't know, however, if they ship to Canada.
