We appreciate the opportunity to hear from our members here in the community about suggestions, feedback, concerns, and kudos. If you have a particular product you are looking at, we may be able to track down the country of origin for you. 'Imported' is used due to the complexities and dynamics of the global supply chain and the fact that individual items (sometimes even within the same product line) can be manufactured in different factories and different countries. We will pass your feedback along to our teams for consideration.
For more information, we encourage you to look at the Fair Labor in our Supply Chains section of our Stewardship report. Lastly, while it does not allow you to exclude one country, you can search rei.com for items made in the USA, and then filter down to the specific category of item you are looking for.
At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
