    Awesome New Site. Very spiffy. I like how their items are better categorized IMHO and its also easier to navigate.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    I like the new website.

    It reflects the passion that they have for their craft.

    The products present nicely-yes the new website creates an itch in me that wants to spend money

    The only suggestion I would have is to rewrite the first paragraph in the "Our
    Story" section. The writer does not introduce himself and is only know as "I" (first person).

    I noticed they were selling 'Tree Savor' straps... I like trees, but I don't savor them. Nice site upgrade. Kudos.

    Like the home page. Personally, I like sites where I can see multiple items at a time. For me, and for these products, I pretty much know where to go. But I'm wondering if newbies can make heads or tails out of all the products without clicking on each one individually. I know that some other vendors do the same thing, but their inventory is not what the Jacks' is. Just sayin', not sure this one person's opinion matters all that much.

    a little input..

    much easier navigation!

    Rule of thumb -- the home page should have product on it if an ecommerce site. if customer just stumbles on the site & does not see product within 5 seconds in the upper viewing area of the page - odds are they will leave.

    take a look at Amazon. guess what product they want to sell the most? most people should see kindle on amazon.com's main page - you will see a bunch of product & categories after you see kindle

    FYI -- the sliders bring me to a dead link

    No link?

    No link in the whole thread. What do I do - wait for an ad to pop up?
