Basically if you have an excess of something let me know. Thanks
Shipping from the USA via the postal service, the worst you're going to get hit with is a $5.00 processing feel and your local sales taxes. If you're ordering an item that needs a larger box to ship it in, then the shipping rates do get pricey. But many lightweight camping gear stuff isn't available readily in Canada.
Cold weather clothing your can get at Mountain Equipment Coop, amsteel is readily available in Canada. Fabric may be an issue. Sometimes there are reginal stores that warehouse fabrics for DIY use, so check around. Silnylon is all buy impossible to find in Canada by the yard. It also doesn't hurt to support our HammockForum vendors. They will all ship to Canada and sell the right stuff for good prices.
