Do you offer free shipping?

There are two ways to get free shipping for your REI purchase. You can have your order shipped to your local store for in-store pickup, or you can get free U.S. Standard shipping on qualifying orders.

What does it mean if an item is on backorder?

If an item is not currently available, but we think we'll eventually get more inventory, you have the option to put that item on backorder. If the item becomes available we will ship it to you. Of course, we will not charge your credit card until the item ships.
