Hi,

I will be heading down to Spore soon and hoping the nice members here could help me out. I would like to get a Deuter backpack and a Hi Tec/Colombia trekking shoes. Is there any shop in Sg that I can find them at a good price and choices? Thanks!

Deuter is a very common brand here. Can find it everywhere including hypermarts like Carrefour! You can also check out Sports Connection.
For HiTec/Colombia, you can try World of Sports, they carry quite a decent range....

Thanks for the replies guys. Do you think the Great Singapore Sale(25 May - 22 July) will have some effect on the prices of the bagpacks and shoes? Or there will be not much different? Oh, I hope the above mention shops will sell Osprey bagpacks too. Thanks.

Ok, for the shoes, if your size is US 11-13, normally you can catch them at World of Sports at 50% discount. They clear those odd sizes quite frequently. Although will normally be at least one model old.

Of Osprey bagpacks, go to any Sports Connection. The one at Plaza Singapura is quite big and complete in the range. One thing to note. There are normally 2 price tags. The 'Original' and the 'special' price. However, normally, they will charge you another 20% off the special price. Ask the staff for it. Unless you REALLY HAVE WHITE SKINS. But, be persistant. Cause that is the normal street price here. (For sports connection)

Basically Deuter's quality dropped lately. Especially the internal linings. They tend to flake a lot now. I would advise you for Osprey. Although, the pricing is still a little on the high side.

I think what we lack is a central Mall for adventure stuffs. Can't lay my hands on the light raincoats and garments.

Do note if you are a tourist, be careful when u buy at Golden Mile. There are no price tags on the bags and although we locals can get it cheap. A obvious tourists might get ripped off.

oni for those w/ deep wallets go there, IMO. :hung:
The stuff there is quality and the guy who runs it will exchange if goods are faulty.

Also it is the only that specialises in snow gear....unless you guys know of other places?

Also try Outdoor specialist (based in Penisular Plaza) http://outdoorspecialist.com.sg/

Campers and Outdoor are across the road from each other!

You can also get Deuter from BHG Singapore, formerly known as Seiyu before it was bought over by a China company, Bugis Junction.

For Osprey backpack, you can try the Sports Connection shop at Shaw Leisure gallery.

I concur that Campers Corner is very expensive and caters to a niche expatriate and rich customers. They were still upmarket price even when it was still at Paradiz centre many years ago.:thumbsd:
