In 1938, mountain climbers Lloyd and Mary Anderson joined with 23 fellow Northwest climbers to found Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI). The group formed a consumer cooperative to supply themselves with high-quality ice axes and other climbing gear.

During the past six decades, REI has grown into a renowned international supplier of specialty outdoor gear, currently serving more than 1.8 million active members through 60 retail stores in the U.S. and Japan and by direct sales via the Internet, telephone and mail.

Although the gear sold by REI today looks much different than it did in 1938, the guiding principles of the member-owned cooperative remain the same.

While non-members are welcome to shop at REI, only members enjoy special benefits and offers including an annual patronage refund based on their purchases.
