backcountry.com?

Hey have any of you guys bought from Backcountry.com: The North Face, Mountain Hardwear and Arc'teryx Skiing, Camping, Hiking and Backpacking Gear? For some reason it seems a little iffy to me, I was going to get some bindings and I just wanted to know how it is from more of a personal review or comment. Not just some words from someone random.

Backcountry = Dogfunk = Department of Goods = Whiskey Militia = Steep and Cheap = Chain Love = Bonk Town = Real Cyclist = Competitive Cyclist ... did I miss any?

Backcountry is probably the most legit site on the entire internet, and their customer service is some of the best in the business.

Back Country just Rocks! That is where I buy all of my SHIT! Between BC & Geartrade I have bought over 8 snowboards and 10 pair of Ski's. Hit up geartrade during the summer for your preseason gear. I have picked up several almost new NITRO boards for under 70 bucks and Targa bindings under 100! Back Country has the best return policy in the world.

Did you know that a ducks quack doesn't echo?

Backcountry and dogfunk are very legit, the overseas freight is balls achingly expensive though.

Also HuckNRoll.com and Chainlove.com

Yeah, they're legit.

I buy most of my stuff from backcountry because of their return policy. I must have gone through 6 pairs of boots last year trying to find the right ones (I have slightly wide feet). You can return stuff even if it's used, which was a huge help. They're not the cheapest site, but that flexibility was worth a little extra to me.

Amazing return policy.
Although boots are probably the one thing I wouldn't buy online
