At REI, we love to get outside and play, and we know first-hand the importance of quality outdoor gear. In addition to offering top brands like The North Face, Merrell, Marmot and Patagonia, we also design our own line of award-winning REI-brand gear and clothing, plus Novara-brand bicycles and cycling gear. Our passion for outdoor adventure is evident, whether you walk into one of our 100-plus stores, phone us or visit us online at REI.com. And no matter how you shop, every purchase you make is backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
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. From our how-to articles and online videos to our in-store classes and clinics, you can be sure you've come to the right place to learn about outdoor activities and gear.
More than just a retailer, REI is a co-op, a community of more than 4 million members who share a love of the outdoors. We are committed to inspiring and educating others to experience the benefits of outdoor recreation, protecting and enhancing shared natural spaces, and mentoring the next generation of outdoor stewards. We also support hundreds of nonprofit organizations and are actively engaged in our communities across the country. As a member-owned co-op, we return our profits to our members in the form of an annual dividend, typically 10% of eligible purchases.
Stewardship is core to our purpose. Each year, REI donates millions of dollars to support conservation efforts nationwide, and sends scores of volunteers to build trails, clean up beaches, and teach outdoor ethics to kids. Through responsible business practices, we strive to reduce our environmental footprint.
