They may not be in competition now but give it a few years.
I've taken my MSR stove to bogong for warranty repair twice and I didn't even buy it there.
When I was a broke student I shopped around for price. Most people, however, can afford the extra 5% here and there to support the small guy. In return you get good service and product range.

There are two many big faceless businesses nowdays. When they stuff up or you have something out of the ordinary, they don't care.

I bought plane tickets with IBERIA over the web. They had no record of them when I went to pick them up at the airport even though they sent me a confirmation. They didn't give a shit and I was left flightless in Morocco. No apology. No responsibility. Nothing.
