    We needed to get fitter for backpacks for our first backpacking trip. The gentleman who helped us "Martin" was great.He provided lots of great information, all of which got used on our trip.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    Be sure to stop by the gear garage downstairs below cycling. They sell returned or partially damaged gear. You can find some awesome deals.

    Buying a pack? Bring in some gear, or gather some from around the store to get a realistic feel 4 the pack you're investing in. This is way better than using the sandbags. Then walk the store w/ pack
