      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Shopping for a beacon in Portland...

Recommended Posts

I need a new avy beacon. And I pretty much need it right now.

Which shop in Portland has the best selection? I'm hoping to not drive all over town.

Thanks.

Probably the Mountain shop (around NE 6th & Broadway) or OMC (around NE 29th & Sandy) are gonna be your best bet.

 

Edit: just checked the websites, and it looks like OMC should have a couple different models. I didn't find any on mountainshop site, but their website isn't really useful or accurate, so they might actually have some in the store ..

 

Edit again: REI carries at least one model, but probably not currently on the shelves in the store. Probably best to call each store (OMC, Mountain shop, or downtown REI) to see if any of them have them in stock)

Thanks for the reply, hemp.

I've also been checking online for what local shops have. Looks like OMC will be the best bet (look likes they've moved since the last time I was there). REI usually seems pretty limited with what they have in stock. Never been to Mountain Shop (I ain't from 'round here), may have to check it out anyway.

I just wanted some local input on the subject.

OMC has my vote.

 

To bad you need it now. I just got a BCA Tracker off Backcountry.com with a 20% off no sales tax (not that it's an issue for you) & free shipping.

OMC online and backcountry.com show the tracker at about the same price. Am I missing something?
