    Tough to beat the service and prices of the Speers.

    ditto Cannibal. The only reason I've bought elsewhere is to get different colors.

    I had seen that as well, but wondered if there was somewhere I hadn't found.

    Thru-hiker carries good stuff and reasonable prices; owfinc also has a pretty good selection, and Seattle Fabrics has plenty to choose from, but bring your wallet.

    Those are my main 3 outside of the Speers. Thru-hiker is probably my favorite of the three and you can get good deals on 2nds although the color selection seems a little more limited on the 2nds.
