Sign-up for their newsletters or if you prefer, they have RSS feeds that you can subscribe to. This organization is second to none! Customer service at Schnee’s is nothing like I have ever seen. On my hunt to Montana last year, I was cutting it close in getting all of my Sitka Gear , (from another vendor) before I left home. They held 2 pair of pants and 3 pair of socks for me, for 2 weeks before I finally arrived. I have learned my lesson they are my goto outerwear store.

When I arrived, they sales person informed me of a better pair of socks, which were at the other store. He “ran” not walked to the other retail store and brought them to me! And they were awesome, as I wore this socks for 8 days in “The Bob”!!!
