Who develops REI-branded gear?

I love REI brand gear.  One of my favorites is the Passage 1 tent.  While it's a great tent, I've started to experiment with a DIY hammock for winter camping.  Is there a department at REI that works to develop new gear?

@JoeW Thanks for reaching out and thanks for sharing your love for our gear!

We do have a department of folks who bring to life the REI Co-op gear and apparel we know and love. We also have a quarterly 'pitchfest' for presenting your ideas to REI. If you have an idea you'd like to share please check out the REI Co-op Innovator page for more information.

Hope this helps and best of luck with your idea!

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