Hi,
I am looking to buy some cheaper hiking gear in BA, the price for a Columbia shoes is ridiculous here, I was thinking to check hiking equipment when I am going to visit Uruguay, what eo you guys advice?

Thanks

Plan on paying 2 to 3 times what you would pay in the US or Europe. Outdoor gear is super expensive in Argentina and much of it is low quality. You may luck out and find a private party selling used gear.
Check Craigslist or Mercadolibre.
I doubt you'll find any cheap equipment in Uruguay either.

What do you need?

Uruguay is probably not going to be cheaper. Chile is based on my recollection but still more expensive than the US.

Patagonia on Suipacha y Arenales (Retiro) had some stuff for sale a couple months ago. Good deals (for Argentine prices anyway).

We were at Patagonia a few weeks ago, no sales, VERY expensive.
