If you like the outdoors, this is your place. In my opinon REI has the best selection of gear in the area. Most of the stuff is middle to high end. You aren't going to find much cheap or low end gear here, which is probably for the best because you are not going to want it breaking on you when you are in the rough. I bought my last backpack here and appreciate the staff member who helped me find the perfect one that fit me the best. He took the time to let me try them all on until I got the right one.
