I'm not sure how the border and customs tax works, sometimes I've had to pay it and sometimes I havent.
For those who live in border cities like Vancouver (20-30 minute drive to cross border), it's not too bad.

There's a limit on how much you can bring back, so if you don't mind making a few runs for gears under $150 or so, you should be fine. I believe the limit is $75 per person? You could also try your luck and smuggle some gear back if your car has some secret compartments.

But please people, breaking the law is bad, so don't do it
