    Imported.

    Our founders were mountaineers in search of a good ice axe. Tired of ordering from Switzerland, they started the Seattle co-op in 1938 to provide gear to their climber friends—by passing around a notebook. That sense of community is still central to the co-op today, where collective expertise from REI members and store employees informs the design of our products. This is gear built on purpose.
