I'm bringing in more stuff now. Cheaper to have larger orders for the shipping. Also found a local / Canadian source for my polyester webbing and such.
How come there aren't any Canadian topquilt and underquilt manufacturers? Or do they exist and I just don't know about them.
I have no problem supporting US (or other foreign) cottage manufacturers like I've done before, but I'd like to support local Canadian industry if possible.
The down quilt industry is amazing. Im doing some cool weather - summer Apex quilts for people but leave
the down quilts to the pro's. I'm eyeballing an Incubator 20 but the boss says no
Too bad my diygearsupply.com order just shipped yesterday...
The website is http://www.thechandleryonline.com/ and the physical address is 367 Poulin Ave, Ottawa, Ontario
Now if I could only get local fabric at a decent price.
I have just been chatting with the distributor for Guterman in Canada today, principally about Tera 40 but of course they do have other weights available.
Is anyone else interested in buying this thread?
It's available singly in 4000m spools or in boxes (of 10) I think in 400m and 1,200m.
I'm waiting for more details on colours and prices but it would be good to hear from anyone else wanting to buy some.
Started a thread about Thermarest hammocks, strap suspension and bugnet available at MEC now.
Don't let life get in the way of living.
Great to hear there are some manufacturers/suppliers north of the border.
I know some of these mailbox services have been mentioned, but if you're near Toronto or the Niagara region, I'd recommend CBIUSA.com. They are just across the bridge in downtown Niagara Falls and will hold stuff for a few months at no extra charge. This detail was key for me as we only get over every 2-3 months and didn't want extra storage fees adding up. Just note they aren't open on Sunday.
If you're anywhere near another border crossing, look into Kinek https://www.kinek.com/find-border-kinekpoint
Similar model and more pickup points. Some of the locations charge based on duration, but some don't.
