About Us

The editorial staff at REI Co-op is a team of passionate writers, editors, producers, directors, visual designers, cinematographers and photographers. We’re dedicated to covering the outdoors: the skills and equipment you need for your next adventure, the people who inspire you, the issues and events impacting our community, and the places you want to go. With all of our stories, we aim to help more people see themselves in an outdoor life. 

Through articles, videos and podcasts, we cover outdoor gear, education, news, culture and more. In particular, our reporting explores issues like recreation and how a new generation is redefining ways to get involved in the outdoors; efforts to increase access to the outdoors; nature’s impact on public health; and climate change—the people and outdoor places impacted by our warming planet.

We hope the co-op is your go-to source for all things outdoors, no matter where you’re reading, watching or listening. Stay up to date with the latest outdoor news on Facebook and Twitter, get inspired for your next adventure on Pinterest and Instagram, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for our documentary-style films, how-to videos and more.
