LINKS TO THE REI COMMUNITY
At REI, we love to get outside and play, and we know firsthand the importance of quality outdoor gear. Whether you're new to outdoor adventure or a seasoned pro, we gladly share our enthusiasm for our products—and the trails, slopes and waterways where we play.
As a co-op, REI is owned by its members. We don’t answer to shareholders or a quarterly bottom line. So we can take the long view and focus on what’s best for our members—and at the same time conduct business in a way that’s socially and environmentally responsible. Every year, we donate a portion of our operating profits to help protect and restore the environment. We also sponsor programs that connect kids to the great outdoors.
Here you’ll find plenty of ways to stay connected, share your adventures and hear what other REI members have been up to. Not a member yet? Check out all the great benefits below.
