View Full Version : Good kit shops ivo Twin Cities

Flying over the pond this week and Im looking for any good kit shops in the Twincities area. Im not actually looking for anything in particular, but you never know until you stumble on to something and think "Hmmm that could be useful if I cut that off and used velcro instead".

I take it that Mechanix gloves are sold in most hardware stores.

If you are looking for Mechanix gloves, your best bet in the Twin Cities area is probably O' Reilly Auto Parts. Full disclosure, I am not a gear expert and am probably outside my lane, so I apologize for that. I did scour the area for the gloves though to send in care packages. Here are the store locations and phone numbers for the St. Paul area. They did have the tactical version of the gloves when I was purchasing them.

thanks for the links. I got a reply from Eagle Ind. with some locations of stores that carry their line of products, just need to plot them into the GPS and away I go.
