Anyone recommend any?

I know of TSA on the Strand, 47degrees in Putney/Fulham, but are there any other good stores you'd recommend?

Depends what your after...

There's a Snow & Rock and Blacks in both High Street Ken and Covent Garden......

If your on this site, which means you have net access, why don't you google it.....

Cheers... forgot about Snow and Rock... theres one in Holborn aswell I think.

Yeah... googled it, but it came up with not much.... just loads of web based shops, as well as Ellis Brigham/Tsa and 47degrees.... not much else unfortunately Often some of the best shops are ones people recommend.

If you can be bothered, it's worth going to Snow + Rock or Ellis Brigham to check out the range (Covent Garden is S+R's flagship store so it's huuuuge!), then once you find what you're after seeing if you can get it for cheaper on the net!

Personally I'd head for Covent Garden and grab a sales rep in S+R - they're trained to find out exactly what you need and then ramble on about why Jacket X is perfect for you. It's expensivo but then ski stuff is...

PS It's probably best to go when it's not too busy, then they can give you their full attention!

PPS If you're wondering about prices, then Ellis Brigham tend to price all their stuff at £x.95 whereas S+R round up to the pound, so shopping at EB generally saves you 5p. Woohoo! S+R sales assistants are better though.
"I am a very good skier...in my mind. However, video evidence suggests that I'm rubbish. I look like a bus driver in a primary-coloured anorak, sitting on an imaginary lavatory. Also I can only turn right. So to mask my embarrassment, and the pain in my thighs, I ski only when very drunk. I can recommend this wholeheartedly." Jeremy Clarkson

Bags, did you used to work at S+R? Do you think that influences your opinions of the staff??

It's a possibility.

Never. I remain impartial and free from prejudice as always.
