SAIL is a newcomer to the outdoors store scene in the GTA. Based in Quebec, SAIL recently expanded into Ontario and opened stores in Vaughan and Oshawa. A third Ontario location is slated to open in Burlington sometime this spring. Similar in size and scope to Bass Pro Shops, SAIL succeeds where Bass Pro has failed - in the hiking boots department. SAIL carries an impressive array of brands that run the gamut from entry-level selections like The North Face and Salomon, to premium names like Mammut, and even super-premium like Lowa. Other brands carried are: Merrell, Patagonia, Keen, and Ecco. SAIL is definitely a place to check out for hiking boots, especially if you live close to Vaughan.
