  • If you are like me and love to browse any REI store you are going to love the downtown Seattle flagship store. Huge, well stocked store housed in a beautiful rustic looking building. 
  • This is REIs flagship store, and it is a large place, indeed. It has about everything you'd need for any outdoors adventure, and the entire building has wood and logs that have been rescued from fores...  more »

  • I tend to like more violent outdoor activities like hunting and fishing but this flagship REI store is full of a lot of cool outdoor gear. The staff is super helpful and friendly and the selection is quite amazing. The only downside is the cost. This place is not cheap but you get what you pay for and when I'm out in the wilderness I want gear that isn't going to quit on me so for certain things, price is not a deal breaker. Anyway, if you love the outdoors and you've never been, you need to go to this store. The eye-candy alone is worth the trip.
  • I went here to do some major shopping for a trip that I have coming up. After quite a while of serious decision making, I checked out and left. I was minutes over the line between two and three hours, and ended up getting bumped up from $2 parking to $15 parking. It felt like a big "f*** you" on my way out the door, and left a really sour taste in my mouth. I'm already handing you lots of money. I have a membership and your credit card. Stop price-gouging on your parking, or even give it to me for free if I'm making a large purchase that day. I don't want to feel rushed while making decisions. I have a few more complaints about over confident and under informed staff, but you can usually find someone who knows what they're talking about if you look.
  • Great place for camping and outdoor equipment. The staff is also very friendly and knowledgeable. Prices seem a little high but it is a co-op and you get 10% back if you are a member so it isn't too bad.
  • Great store for outdoor recreation. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff to help you make a decision. The return policy is fantastic and being a member gets you money back every year. Highly recommended for getting outdoor gear that you can touch and use before buying. It's a huge store and you can get lost for hours.
  • 3 stars based entirely upon their selection of sleeping bags which I was thoroughly disappointed in for a flagship REI. They did not have much variety in the 0 degree down range at all! Also, the store in SLC has a piece of paper with all bags and their stats listed so you can quickly narrow your search. This REI had no such convenience. The store is huge but so is their oversight on sleeping bag selection.
