  • "We've also found that they have a great selection for making BOB's or emergency packs for those just in case moments. " in 9 reviews
  • "Their shoe selection for running is a bit on the scarce side- so I suggest a specialty running shoe store for those, otherwise- REI is the place to go for outdoor gear/wear." in 7 reviews

The website is just as good as the actual store. But with the ease of not having to leave the house. They always have a great selection and everything you could need for your outdoor need. But they tend to carry only the top line brands, which can make things a bit pricey if you are looking for some cheaper options.

This store is best especially when looking for backpacking equipment. The only downside is most products are retail and are hardly ever on sale. The best time to go is when they have their "REI Garage Sale". This event is for members only, but don't worry- you can purchase one the day of, if you find a great deal on something you want to buy. Overall, good store that contains everything you need for a camping or backpacking trip.

REI has turned out to be my most favorite store for everything outdoors. Become a member and the benefits are phenomenal. Literally has anything you could want and more for having fun outside.

REI is definitely my favorite store. I only get REI gift cards as presents and I will likely register there for my wedding (yes, really). It is definitely pricey, but it's worth it for their return policy and amazing quality. Plus, if you become a member (which you SHOULD), you can get a dividend back each year!

Heaven for people who love the outdoors. No matter whether you're a camping junkie, hiker, hunter, etc... they will have something for you. We don't have one locally, so we try to go whenever we are in an area that does. Maybe we will get one here eventually.

The membership isn't about saving only, it's about protection.
We bought an Oregon GPS model and after 2 years the touch screen wouldn't work. REI gave us a full refund, no questions asked because we were members. There is no time limit on the policy either. It is a true satisfaction guaranteed membership.

I have shopped this website for years. I like the varied departments that are under this one retailer. From super outdoor sports gear to sports bras and socks. Recently REI opened a store in Cincinnati, so I'm super excited to be able to shop in store, but i still hit the website and check out the outlet!

REI is the best store for outdoor gear. They have everything for camping, various outdoor sports, and even have great clothes like Kuhls pants. They often have good sales and coupons.

REI is the go-to when you are looking for gear for outdoor activities. In addition to gear, they also sell apparel for all seasons that are great for warm and cold weather hobbies. Pricing is good, but can be expensive depending on what you are in the market for.

I like REI as store in whole, but they are way over priced. The store is either to small or you cant find a sales associate that knows what they are selling. They do offer a wide variety of product, but again finding a person who knows their business is the key to a good shopping experience

Is the membership fee an annual fee? Is it a waste of money or is it really a good deal?
