Getting an item that is not currently sold by REI

I'm really interested in the Patagonia City Storm Parka (for men). You carry other Patagonia jackets, but not this one currently. Is it possible to get this through REI?

Thanks for reaching out!

Sometimes it is possible to place an order with one of our vendors for an item that is not normally carried by REI. This process is called a 'special order' and can only be placed in your local REI store. The ability to place a special order for an item is dependent upon availability and vendor restrictions. As such, not all products that a vendor carries are available to special order. Additionally, processing and shipping timelines for special orders are dependent on the vendor. 

Hopefully this helps, thanks!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

Thanks for sharing John, very helpful.
