Can I bring my backpack and shoes into an REI for fitting?

i got an osprey backpacking pack for christmas. can i bring it into an REI store and have someone get it fitted and make sure it's the right size for me? 

- same with hiking shoes - if i bring in boots that i didn't purchase at REI can i have someone check that they're the right size?

Hi @cristina - Thanks for reaching out! Yes, you can bring your new pack into an REI to have someone help you with fitting. Having a pack fit properly is an important step towards getting the best use of it, so we're happy to hear that you already had that in mind. 

For the boots, if the store where they were purchased is nearby, we suggest starting there. If that is not an option, you can bring them in or contact the store beforehand to see if there is availability. 

Glad to hear you got some new backpacking gear for Christmas. Happy hiking!
