TRying to get a Spyder Trucker jacket but nobody will ship to Canada and they are not available here anybody know of a route to get one of these jackets into Canada?

Why don't you purchase from a Canadian dealer?

You really should ask them why. It could be because the distributor for Spyder is another company in Canada and therefore it is considered grey market.

You can have them ship it to me and I'll ship it to you. Shouldn't cost more than an extra $30 or so for USPS Priority Mail International. Zip is 94070.

 

Some brands restrict retailers from sending their stuff out of the country. I think Burton does a lot of this. It helps them support their dealers outside the US and keep prices higher outside US.

I got all my winter gear from the USA. I shipped to a place near the border who charges me $3 a package and I go and pick it up. Simple. Just depends on where you live and how close to the border you are. Saved me over 50% on each item too! Got a Burton AK jacket for $300 when in Canada, it's $650 plus tax.

I live in Vancouver, and when I order things from the  US, I have the items shipped to a postal outlet in Point Roberts (US border town).  Depending on the size of the item, it will cost you just a couple of dollars and the drive across the border to pick it up. When I tell the Canadian border guards that the items are for my kid, they just wave me through.

You can solve this problem by using one of the many parcel forwarding outfits like http://www.webuyitforyou.com. They will get you your gear.
