I agree, that would be a good thing to do. But it's kind of hard to find shops with gear when you live in a small town overseas!Fatass SVS said:I realize it is a counterintuitive proposition, but why not go to a "bricks and sticks" shop where they have inventory and let you try stuff on. It costs more, but there is value in side-by-side comparisons and size shopping. Support your local retaler, or they'll disappear.
I agree though that newenough.com is a fine on-line operation.
