Thanks for all the suggestions. Time was limited so I was only able to go to REI SoHo, EMS and Tents and Trails. I enjoyed all stores but T&T is awesome. I my the S2S nano bug nets at EMS and while none of the stores has the MH GhostWhisperer jacket, EMS and T&T had the WM Flash Jacket. I bought it first at EMS for $290, but later found it at only $240 at T&T plus a further 5% off if you paid in cash. So I returned the EMS one. I could have spent a lot of time in T&T. They have all the brand name gear at great prices.
