    Online shopping

    What websites do you fellas use for hunting clothing, packs and boots? Any decent overseas websites? not much of a variety at the local hunting shop.

    eBay, EuroOptics, Moontrail....it helps to have a US shipping address for those sellers
    who won't ship outside the US. I use Shipito.

    I've been buying Kuiu hunting gear straight from their website - delivery from the states within a week. I've found other decent hunting gear can be hard to find, so it's worthwhile doing your research online before ordering a heap of stuff. There is some cheap shit in the US to beware of that. I've also found decent Under Armour gear which many people like isn't much cheaper over there than here, but there's more variety. Have bought boots and shoes from a variety of sources overseas, from Germany, to UK to USA and have never had an issue with any shipment. Have bought opitcs out of Europe, Aussie and the US, without issue - just do a bit of research before you commit to buy. Amazon's usually pretty good for finding decent hunting gear too, listings in NZD and easily paid for by Paypal. If no international shipping is offered on something I want, I just put it through my you-shop or shipito address and again, never had an issue with those freight forwarding companies. Like you, I support local when I can, but due to a lack in variety and in some cases huge savings cost wise, buying from overseas is the logical way to go.

    I pretty much ebay everything, some good prices to be found and even free shipping on a lot of gear, opticsplanet is the other one I use.
    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Yep, put an order in Saturday morning, was shipped Sunday avo, arrived at my rural address here in Southland on Friday morning. Fastest transaction with them so far. Can't get stuff from Auckland that fast these days!
