REI, is the leader of the pack in outdoor
equipment. I have been a member since I moved from France in 1988 and will never
buy gear anywhere else unless it is a very specialized piece of equipment REI
does not carry.
Why? REI offers the best quality for the price. And an
outstanding customer service.
Sometimes I returned equipment after heavy usage because
something broke (and no equipment could have not broken), they always fix it for
free, change against a new one, or refund it, even years later. The best/worst
is their sales, every time I end up with a full cart of things I didn't plan on
buying because I couldn't resist the equipment they offered for the money. REI
sale their own great products in addition to well priced gear from the best
manufacturers. I will soon write a full list of equipment I have bought, used
and loved for years. In the meantime if you practice any outdoor sports, camping
or prepare a trip, follow these links (upper one to browse, or type the
equipment you are looking for in the bottom banner and click go).
