HI all;
Anybody with opinions on buying stuff from Evogear?
Thanks!!!

They are FANTSTIC!  They are one of my 2 or 3 go to vendors.  They have a best price guarantee that I tested last year.  If you call them and tell them what website has a better price for a particular product they will look it up and give you 10% better.  They did this last year on a pair of Salomon Ghost boots.  They are legit.

I like them a lot too. Very knowledgable, accommodating and friendly staff.

Just be warned that they are a bit disorganized when it comes to paper work. I speculate that they are a very small outfit. Make sure you double check your order before and after delivery. If a mistake happens, call them and they will bend over backwards to take care of you. They have for me so far.

I bought a bern helmet from them a few weeks ago and everything went smoothly.

I've made multiple purchases, and have had great deals and service.  Now that Backcountry.com has dropped the lifetime return policy, the two are directly comparable IMHO.  (Edit to clarify: I still like with Backcountry, but their old return policy used to give them a leg up in my book, especially when buying off-season.  A "like it or return it" guarantee is useless to me for gear I buy in July.  But they still get props for excellent product, prices and service.)

In my experience, the used gear condition consistently undersells their product.  I bought my wife a pair of former demos (158 Dynastar Exclusive Legend Powders with Look NX12 bindings) that were supposedly in "Value" condition, but aside from the grease pen numbers, there was nothing that a tune didn't take care of.  And at $140 shipped, an absolute steal.

I think EVO is excellent.  I've ordered several things from there.  The only issue I've ever had is when I ordered a Dakine Concourse Single ski bag.  They sent me the Double.  But I only paid for the single, so that'll work out just fine!!

yeah, what he said.  I've made at least 5 purchases from there with no issue whatsoever. Sometimes I've order just through the web interface and on other occasions I've called the 800 and spoken directly to a sales person.  They are great and easy to work with.  Great deals to be had in their outlet.  I don't have anything negative to say about them.

I've also purchased from backcountry.com and even had to do a return there because of an incorrect size/fit on a pair of pants for my son.  They've been pretty good too.

Very good/recommended.  I've purchased from them at least 3 times, including some used gear that was in "as advertised' or better condition.

Evo is excellent, they are my #1 source for everything other than boots. I just bought a pair of Dynastar Contact 10's from them. A pair of used demo's from last year, I got them for less than $250, and they are in phenomenal shape (they were marked as 'Standard' on the website). Some almost invisible topsheet scratching, and some scuffs on the bindings. The bases are freshly stone ground, so they look like they're fresh out of the factory box. A lot of their stuff is used demo gear. Having been buddies with a bunch of ski shop guys, I've learned that the top-end demo skis they have spend 90% of the season sitting in the shop, and usually only get about 10-15 days of use. Another thing I like about the demo gear is that they have demo rails on them. It's a tiny bit heavier on most skis, but my friends and I like trying out each other's skis... one way of demo-ing without paying for it. Having demo rails makes swapping around a snap. It also lets you set the bindings to your boot without having to go to a shop. I recommend them 100%, without reservation!

They are indeed a good source for ski stuff, and now that they use FEDEX for shipping... really fast shipping...the previous DHL sucked bigtime....

As someone said previously their records/paperwork is sometimes sketch....a pair of boots I ordered ended up in CO instead of CA....what's the difference, just an O instead of an A....anyway they fixed pronto....also you might have to check that return $S are indeed credited to your charge card account....

I've bought from them as well.  Fast shipping, great price, great service.
