Why Read This
Forrester evaluated the websites of the five largest US outdoor retailers — Lands' End, L.L.Bean, Eddie Bauer, Orvis, and Sierra Trading Post — using our Website Functionality Benchmark (WFB) methodology. The results: L.L.Bean was the clear winner, as it was the only retailer to pass every category of tests. However, all sites (including L.L.Bean) faced problems, even surrounding some concepts our research shows are important to consumers; namely, a deeper quick view feature or the ability to shop from a video.
