quality outdoor shop in Geneva

Hello,
I need to buy some high quality down clothing for upcoming expeditions/trips, so if anybody knows about outdoor shops in Geneva not focused on cheapest stuff, but rather brands like Millet, Mammut and so on.
I know about one - Passe Montagne, but it would be nice to have a choice (and possible spring discounts )
Or if there is something just across the border accessible via public transport, it would be also nice.

Thank you for any advice

No idea about public transport, I'm afraid, and this is a little bit further than 'just across the border' but Au Vieux Campeur in Sallanches is a great place for all sorts of outdoor stuff.

Certainly not right across the border, for for quality gear, good selection and decent prices head to Chamonix.

I know people who live in Chamonix but drive to Sallanches for better prices and service...
