Depends on how worried I am about fit. If I know the company and am comfortable that I know my sizes--I'll buy on line. If not, then I like to buy through a dealer 'cause sending it back is easier and getting a new one faster. (Around here we have a distributer and if I send it back from the shop there's about a 2 day turn around and if I send it through UPS is can be 2 weeks or more....).
Yeah, that makes sense. I'd like to buy locally but the problem is I'm too hard to fit. Buying online really can stretch out the time involved to complete the process, but I guess is sometimes necessary.
