Best Outdoor Gear / Sporting Goods


Outdoorsy Austinites have been voting REI Number One since back in the day when this national co-op was located on Lamar. And that's saying something in a town as full of nature nuts as ours. REI's dedication to quality and variety are evident in their huge selection, including their competitively priced store brand. Aside from that, there's plenty to keep customers loyal. Is it the rock wall? Their convenient location in the Gateway Plaza? Or is it that their knowledgeable staff is attentive enough to stay patient while you insist on trying on five different kinds of rucksacks? Honestly, we bet it has to do with that little six-letter word synonomous with "co-op": REBATE!
