I love this store.
I love this store. The staff is very helpful. I am a member. It's only one-time fee of $20 but you get a % back on any return and year end dividend that can be used towards a purchase. Good tennis shoe, sandals and working shoes. I buy their travel shirts and pants that dry fast and real light for travel. I can wash a shirt in hotel room and overnight it dries up ready to go.
The Shangri-la of gear for those who spend their time rock-climbing, backpacking, cycling and finding other ways to conquer nature..
