Since we have a long discussion on winter shoes and other gear, I would like to share where I got my bargains and hopefully others will to.
We have a Timberland warehouse in IMM but if you what to get real hiking boots and gear, this place isn't the best.
Beach Rd / Army gear
You can find a healthy selection of decent gear that will be affordable and get you by for short trips. But if you want the lightest and the best (and be willing to pay for it) then these may not be right for you.
Otherwise that pair of Army Goretex boots, esp the 2nd Gen ones are pretty decent. Note the ankle protection is not great for seriously bad terrain and if you are carrying a lot of gear - 40 lbs and above.
The camou Goretex jacket is alright although a bit heavy. The new army pack is cheap at $39, but its quite heavy.
Sports Connection offers reasonably priced gear, and the bottles, packs and other items are not bad.
Camper's corner, Emmanuel etc are more costly but if you cannot travel abroad, they are not bad.
Other winter clothes chains exist and are convenient but not that cheap.
Your options are to ask someone to get them for you, or to buy online.
There is some trial and error in sizing, for example, I am a L size locally but M in US shops. Your first purchase may be totally off, but the savings are not bad.
Many of these do not ship directly but with the aid of Vpost, boderlinx etc you can ship items over.
NOTE: no knives are shipped
www.campmor.com does not ship directly but is quite cheap.
www.rei.com has a outlet version and both ship to SG.
http://www.sierratradingpost.com/ is pretty cheap
www.altrec.com is alright in price
even Amazon has a decent selection
Zappos.com also sells shoes
Look out for sales, as the savings are considerable.
