Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What others are saying about virtual outfitting
“I was super impressed that REI matched me with an expert who himself has dogs and could really talk about what it's like to take a dog into the backcountry. He helped me think of things I never would have considered”Customer review
“Even though we set up the call specifically to determine which products we should buy, I feel like Sarah's main goal was to teach us about backpacking. It didn't feel like a sales call but more of an educational meeting. To me, this goes a long way to tell me what REI and your employees care about”Customer review
“It allowed for time to talk through everything while being socially distanced. It was comprehensive and made me feel more educated to make purchases”Customer review
