Okay, I'm in the process of filling my "Go Bag" - stuff I'll need for my own sailing, as well as crewing/racing for/with others. I've got a long way to go to fill it, but here's the start.
Price comparisons are via Goggle Shopping (a good cross section) which shows you how Sailnet compares on price:
1. DRY PAK WATERPROOF DUFFEL BAG (DP-D1BL) = $41.98 ($43-$49 on Google)
2. Revere Comfort Max Manual Inflatable PFD with ORC Safety Harness (45-61020-101R) = $122.10 ($117-$160 on Google)
3. ACR FIREFLY PLUS STROBE FLASHLIGHT COMBO (1916) = $30.17 ($27-$38 on Google)
4. ADVENTURE MEDICAL SOL CORE LITE SURVIVAL TOOL (0140-0818) = $16.00 ($20-$25 on Google)
5. MIDLAND NT3VP 5 WATT HH VHF W/ BATTERY, CHRGR, AC (NT3VP) = $59.98 ($58-$69 on Google)
6. Gill Regatta Deckhand Gloves Short Finger (GIL-7041) = $20.45 ($23 on Google)
7. Gill - Performance Shoe - Black/Carbon (GIL-956) = $37.19 ($45 on Google)
So, you can see that for the most part, the prices are much better than anywhere else and/or are very competitive. And the ease of ordering stuff from a single source is really nice as well. Put both of those together - and it's pretty hard to beat.
I've heard people complain about the customer service at SN in the past, and have run into a couple of those issues a couple of years ago when I ordered a holding tank. But the service on this order was rock solid, from the new/better layout of the store and to when I submitted a ticket through the store to add something to my order. Karen got back to me the next day and took care of everything prior to shipping.
Overall - an A+ experience.
Rock on SN!
PS - I'll snap a pic of my glorious go-bag and its contents soon and you guys can tell me everything I'm still missing!
