Whichever PX you go to - watch your timing: "Crazy Sale" is a great concept... 'Attention shoppers, 75% off all items for the next hour...'
Happens sometime after Christmas and before new year.
Garmish best for outdoor gear, as mentioned, Grafenwoehr quite big but apparently Stuttgart has a new three storey one.
Last year, at Christmas, drove down to Garmisch...their PX sporting goods store, 1st floor, in the back corner, had great deals. Prices are really great, very low by UK standards. Good selections, prices, well stocked for sizes and so on.
Staff are very helpful...one being a Brit was very good. One thing you have to give to Yanks, they do customer service right.
The US Ski slope shop has good selections, but, prices are a bit higher.
As already mentioned, Mainz Kastel, in the past, had great kit...but, my info for that is dated.
Pulaski Barracks near Ramstein, in Kaiserslautern had good kit, but, again, that was years ago. Perhaps some RAF blokes at Ramstein is on this thread?
Mainz-Kastel Sports shop is very good, and as said before onlyit's only 5 miles from Wiesbaden. I am going down next weekend and staying overnight as Wiesbaden is a good night out. Wiesbaden is also one of the only places you can get into the commissary as long as youâre not with a bus load of Brits. Donât forget you will need an American ID.
