This store appears to have great prices and a large stock of high quality light weight gear.
I was looking to buy a jacket and found the salesman helpful and knowledgeable. With the relatively volatile pricing of outdoor gear, I asked whether or not a jacket price could be reduced commensurately with a very similar jacket on sale from another manufacturer (also at prolitegear). While I admit I was haggling somewhat, the salesman got defensive and more or less said he could care less if I bought it, and that it would sell itself. When I mentioned the jacket was cheaper somewhere else in a different color, he said he wouldn't price match it and didn't care to look into it.
In the age of information, I feel that the best traits in an online retailer are either the return flexibility (REI or Backcountry), or the absolute best deals possible. Since I've read that prolitegear often has coupon discounts, I was somewhat discouraged at the salesman's reaction to my question about pricing. In the future, I'd be fine buying something from them, but only when they are the absolute best price. Otherwise, I'll stick with better return policies and better deals.
