    REI is the best place for hiking boots. They will let members return boots (even if you've hiked in them). It's worth it to pay a little more for the reassurance you will get the right pair in the end

    Huge store, overly attentive store clerks, and a decent selection of camping/backpacking gear. No where near as expansive in choices as sports basement, but this places is more posh, so...

    A great REI. Friendly people, great selection. The layout is a bit haphazard because of the building.

    REI’s love of the environment and fun go hand in hand. Their green retail buildings emphasize water conservation, energy efficiency and indoor air quality.

    The members used gear sale is always the first weekend of each month. Show up early, and you can score some incredible deals

    REI sucks, horrible service and treat their “members” like shit. Go to Sports Basement instead.
