Co-op made for an outdoor life


SINCE 1938

REI Co-op started as a tiny community and grew into a really big one—all because a group of people liked going outside together and needed the right gear to do so. That got us started in 1938, and keeps us going today.

Backpacking, the co‑op way

We answered the call of members looking for a lightweight backpacking kit. And we brought you along to test it—on the PCT, Saguro National Park, even Vietnam. For us, it’s not just about being fast and light. It should be fun and comfortable too.
