I was going to order a bunch of Eagle goalie equipment from their sister site "goalie monkey". You may want to do some serious research on what country the equipment you want to buy is made in. All of the Eagle stuff I was going to buy was made in China. I phoned and talked to a customer service rep from Goalie Monkey to verify where it was made. There will be some serious duty charges on top all the shipping charges, plus the insane brokerage fees (as others have posted) UPS hammers you with. A case in point, I ordered a pair of Smith polarized sunglass lenses for $30 from some site in the US. Two weeks after I got them, I received a bill for $36 from UPS for brokerage. In the end all be all, it would have cost me the same amount of cash to buy them in Canada. You're better off to wait a week or three when all the sports stores have their spring blowout prices on hockey equipment.
