Where to order gear online?

Just curious what reliable net store do you order your gear from.

I need to place an order for several items for my fishing kayak such as anchor,paddle and some othe odds and ends.

The place i bought my Yak is a very small retailer with little selection.


I just ordered a paddle from REI, and shipping was FAST, one day from PA to Rochester area, NY. UPS shipping.

The biggest thing about REI is they have free shipping over $50 on most items. Catch a sale, and you could save some money, I saved $30 on the paddle I got. If shipping hadn’t been free, I would have bought local, but free shipping tipped the scale :slight_smile:

That is the only place I have delt with as far as online orders, however Oak Orchard Canoe and Kayak (www.oakorchardcanoe.com) is fairly local to me, and are great people to work with. I would imagine their online ordering is just as good to deal with, although their website is a bit ancient as far as online shopping goes.

…what you are looking for and select from the results. I’ve done business with Colorado kayak (CKS) and Tom’s TopKayaker B4 and had good results with both. Depends on what specifically you are looking for.



Second vote for REI. THey have a lot of sales nd shipping is fast. Good customer service too.

You can find some good dealers. Ive bought stuff from headwaters outfitters, Austin kayak, and others. Austin kayak was very helpful with a rudder I needed. Rock creek is another online store with helpful folks. Good luck.

Basspro may be
since it’s a fishing yak; don’t remember if they have any anchors.


Good for clothing and odds and ends.

Sorry for the shameless self promotion just thought some will get a kick out of it.

Some others
that haven’t been listed, Campmor and Sierra Trading Post.

I’ve had great experiences with Austin Kayak and NRS over the years.



REI outlet too
Online the rei-outlet.com is also a great shopping spot for gear. Sales every day. Shipping is free to any REI store, so if you have one in your neighborhood and want to skip the shipping charges on under-$50 purchases, just have them ship it to the store for you to pick up there.

Cabela’s is great too, BTW.

All Good Suggestions
All the sources people gave before are great. I will give you the resources I have used before:

Anchor: Gander Mountain

Paddle: Bending Branches Slice Angler Paddle




Paddle: Aqua-Bound


When in doubt, go to REI.com

Hope this helps.

Just picked up a new PFD from them at a great price.

Hey! I just got one too

How do you like yours? I’ve only used mine a couple of times but so far so good. Great fit and doesn’t ride up. I like the River Tow tether too. Stores nice and safe and easily deployed.

I’ve used


Cabelas (rarely)


MEC ( one of the best for gear quality)


Cooke Custom Sewing.

A host of small one man stores like Snowtrekker tents and Four Dog Stove Company and the Bug Shirt Company Ostrom Outdoors…

Otherwise I am not a fan of big box outdoor stores.


I’ve used them multiple times and been very pleased.
