    GO HERE. I've been to other flagship stores and they never disappoint. Staff is so friendly and helpful. Make this a drop if you have time.

    Pretty sure parents treat this place like a daycare and just drop their kids off for the day.

    The REI garage is free for 1 hour but paid afterwards. Make sure to set an alarm for yourself since it's so easy to get sucked into the awesomeness of the store.

    Jason Dukes · March 24

    Flagship with rock climbing wall on site.

    Have an unused item to return with a receipt? Skip the long customer service line and go to the cashiers.

    Super helpful, attentive staff. Greatest store ever, though the amount of money I could spend here at any given time is dangerous. I love you, REI flagship. You've got it all.

    Mistral pants for men is perfect for travel, having zippered pocket in front and back make them a bit more pick pocket proof

    Easily the coolest REI store anywhere. Make sure you go through the main entrance, because its awesome. Kids play area and restaurant and climbing wall. I could die happy here.

  • Orion P.

    A treehouse that's just the right size for kids, and too small for adults. An excellent break from shopping. Awesome!

    Orion Protonentis · December 6, 2012

    For all your outdoor needs look no further!

    A small, but great REI. Worth a browse before the other outdoors stores in town. If they don't have it, they can find it. Become a member and get great prices!

    Check out the "garage sale" area downstairs - I found a gently used pair of Vibrams there for under $40!!

    REI's towering flagship store! Complete with bike test trail, a climbling wall, and enough outdoor gear to outfit the entire city.

    If you plan on renting ski/snowboard equipment during the peak season you will need to reserve it WELL in advance. They will be out if you try to rent gear the day before your trip.

    Colin Boe · September 24, 2011
  • T L.

    They have a mountain bike trail & waterfall. That's how big this store is!

    Gotta check out the ContourGPS 1080p camera

  • Ponzi B.

    Best tip! If you are coming for hiking boots definitely try the outlet. Someone has already broke them in for at least one hike! Oh - def spring for the uber thick socks with wicking action!

    Ponzi Black · August 23, 2011
  • Ponzi B.

    Park in the garage then walk out where you drove in. Turn right and go around to the truck entrance. Start your shopping in the outlet/ lightly loved section.

    Ponzi Black · August 23, 2011

    Let the kids run wild upstairs at the kud's camp treehouse.
