The REI Guarantee

We stand behind everything we sell. If at any time your REI purchase doesn't meet your expectations, you can return it for a replacement or refund. What's more, if you're an REI member, you don’t even need a receipt—we'll have a record of your purchase.


We have been outfitting outdoor adventurers since 1938. And in that time, we've learned a lot about what makes great gear. Our employees continually use all the gear we have to do the same activities that you do—from weekend day hikes to ascents in the Himalayas.

Plus, we listen to your feedback. All of it. Bottom line? You can count on everything we offer to be highly functional and 100% satisfaction guaranteed. Which means you can't go wrong with gear from REI.

If you're ever dissatisfied with an item, you may return or exchange your REI.com or REI-OUTLET.com purchases at any REI store or through mail order.

Related Questions:

What if something I paid full price for goes on sale?

For products purchased on REI.com or in REI stores, we will honor the sale price if you purchased within the last 14 days and your item is the same product number, color and size as the item on sale. If so, we will gladly refund the difference to you. This does not apply to REI-OUTLET.com purchases, which are not subject to price adjustments.

Do REI-OUTLET.com purchases apply to my member dividend?

No. Items for sale on REI-OUTLET.com do not earn member refunds on your annual REI dividend. Lean more about REI member benefits.

Can I return REI-OUTLET.com items to an REI store?

Yes. You can return REI-OUTLET.com purchases at any REI store or by mail within 30 days of purchase.
