I think the #OptOutside closing on Black Friday is one of the greatest ideas and campaigns REI has ever come up with. If anyone doubts that, just look to see how many other companies are now following suit. If the weather is warm and dry, I will be cycling. If it cold and/or wet, I will be day hiking.
