About 80% of the stuff they sell in the apparel section the REI banded clothing. Now the quality of their REI brand clothing is about as good as stuff I would find at Old Navy except cost 3 times as much. I wanted a thermal or even just a long sleeve T-shirt and the lowest thermal inner I found was on "sale" for $25 (originally $35)! Then if you did decided to buy that shirt you will be sure to see everyone wearing that same design as they stock 20 of the same shirt on one rack rather then carry some different styles to mix things up! Same with all the 5 major bands like Columbia, North Face and Burton. There were big racks for each brand but with 20 of one style of black snow pants, 20 grey and 20 brown and only 4 different styles of jackets to choose from.

Prices are are at MSRP list price or even higher then similar stores like Sport Mart, Sport Authority or even the store that I thought was overpriced, Sport Chalet. After seeing the prices at REI I realised they are the overpriced sports / outdoor leader!

Thanks REI for showing me I don't need to shop at your store by ordering online but it takes about 2 weeks to get my order shipped for free to this store. So it won't be in time for my snowboard trip. Maybe next year when I plan a month ahead of time?

PROS: Had 1 of the 7 times I couldn't find at other sporting stores (Socks)
CONS: Overpriced, very limited selection, long in-store shipping time.

I am not an outdoorsy type so I won't pretend like I know what I'm talking about but I came here about a year ago. I needed to find some snowboots at a low price since I rarely go and wouldn't use them much. One of my friends suggested this store. I came here and was impressed and overwhelmed at the same time by the assortment of merchandise. I worked with a salesperson and found some snowboots for only $30. Luckily they were cute and cheap because I still haven't used them.

This is a great place to come if you're new to the world of camping and outdoor adventures. I came here just before I went backpacking to Europe for the first time. The staff was so friendly and helpful that I felt right at ease and I became more excited for my trip. I was able to find a great backpack at my level for a descent price. I also found some other helpful first aid things and was able to ease my parents for my long trip. This place is the ultimate store in outdoor activites and trips. It's really fun to come and look around because they have life size displays and encourage you to try on the products. Great store.

REI is widely recognized as a leading provider of camping, cycling, and hiking equipment. I have been visiting the REI store in Northridge for the past 8 years or so. As a runner, I primarily use the store for purchasing energy sources such as gels and bars. REI provides these supplements at a good price and will give you a discout if you buy a dozen. They have a great selection of these products, favorable to the carb and protein fans alike.

The apparel department has unfortunately been downsized in the past few years; they no longer have the entire 2nd floor reserved for apparel. Nonetheless, the offer very reasonable priced, durable clothing for outside activities. This isn't the best place to look for specialized sports apparel-I buy my running clothes elsewhere- but is a great place for reliable khakis, jackets, socks, etc. for general purposes.

The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. The return policy is very favorable. Be sure to become a member!

I came here once with my daughter when she was looking for a backpack to go to Europe. Neither of us knew what to pick out and we didn't know the differences between brands and uses. We were assisted by helpful salespeople and we felt secure in our decision. We were also pleased because there was a variety of choices to choose from. Very nice outdoor store.

A great store. I used to camp quite a bit, I even had a huge camper. Whenever I needed accessories or equipment for my trips I came here. This store is so well equiped with everything you need for a trip. The staff is super knowledgable and can helpyou make educated decisions about the proper equipment to buy and take on all different sorts of trips.

Great store, possibly the only store you need if you're going on an outdoor adventure. Really well layed out and well organized. Just coming in here gets me excited to go on a trip and the equipment options are tremendous. Friendly staff and very knowledgable for the experienced or novice traveler. Must check it out.
