*Sigh*.  Yes, I've been around and around with them about this.  They are 
very leery of online sales.  They don't want to compete with the channel, 
so they don't sell on their site but they are also wary about websites they 
don't have control over selling their products.  Very brand conscious that 
way.  And then you throw in insistent retailers like REI who want to sell 
online everything they have in their retail stores and it gets to be a bit 
of a mess.  The web is really tricky for a lot of manufacturers.
