REI – Shop Outdoor Gear
By Recreational Equipment, Inc
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Keep REI close at hand wherever your adventures take you. More than just another clothing app, the REI Shopping App gives you quick access to a huge selection of top-brand outdoor gear and clothing. What other shopping app can help you find everything you need for camping, backpacking, cycling, climbing, kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, fitness and more? Whether you’re looking for men’s clothing, kids’ shoes, women’s apparel, or nearly any other outdoor gear, use our shopping app to purchase right from your phone or check product availability at your local REI store.
SEARCH: Easily find outdoor gear and apparel on our shopping app. Check out product information, specs and customer reviews.
SHOP OUTDOOR GEAR: Buy the gear you love right from your phone. The REI shopping app makes it a snap. Enjoy crisp product images, access customer reviews, easily shop by size and color, watch product videos, and see what other customers viewed and purchased.
CHECK STORE AVAILABILITY: Find the products you want at a nearby REI store, straight from your iPhone. Whether you’re looking at small item like a piece of men’s clothing, or large outdoor gear like a kayak or tent, remember that you can ship it for free to an REI store near you.
SCAN REI PRODUCTS: From inside an REI store, use our shopping app to scan product barcodes to view product information and customer reviews, and to add your dream outdoor gear and apparel to your wish list.
LOCATE A STORE: Need gear or apparel while you're on the go? Use the store locator on our shopping app to find the closest REI store.
SHARE WHAT YOU LIKE: Let your friends know about your favorite REI outdoor gear and apparel through Facebook, Twitter, and email.

GET EASY ACCESS TO YOUR REI MEMBERSHIP INFO: Check your dividend, look up your member number and save it for easy retrieval. Even brag about your dividend balance via Facebook and Twitter to make your friends jealous. Add your REI membership number to Passbook for easier access.
STAY IN TOUCH: Our shopping app can deliver notifications on REI sales events and other happenings to a special REI message center on your phone.
SEE OUR DEAL OF THE DAY: You can save 50% or more on the best names in outdoor gear and apparel—but only if you know about these deals and act fast! Whether you’re looking for camping gear, men’s clothing or women’s apparel, mere clothing apps don’t offer the variety of outdoor gear and clothing that we do.
We recommend keeping your device updated with the latest iOS firmware to ensure the best REI experience. The REI shopping app currently supports iOS 7.0 and higher.

Needs iPad version and saved login
Update (again) for the latest version: Still no iPad version and still won't save your login. If you have a secure password–as you should–the app is a huge hassle to use. (Now that Apple has provided TouchID APIs for third-party developers, there's even less of a reason the REI app can't keep you logged in.)
Original review: The app itself is quite good—I'm frequently able to find information about a product faster than the representatives in my local store. The two biggest criticisms I have are the lack of an iPad version and the fact that the app makes you log in *every* time. It's extremely frustrating, especially when you're switching between apps while shopping. It won't even let you add something to your Wish List without logging in again. As a result, I end up using a simple, non-secure password for my REI account.
REI, please let us choose to stay logged in (or at least to save our login info). You can even throw up a big, nasty warning when we enable the option. Just let us do it.
As a blind customer, it could be more accessible using voice over
As a blind person I use voice over on my iPhone. However when I search for items I have to click on each individual item in order to hear what it is. And if I don't want it I have to go back to the general list and click on each item to hear what they all are. Can you fix this so that I can hear what each item is without having to click on all of them. That would help a great deal and save me a lot of time. If you'd fix this I would give you a rating of four or five stars. It would then be perfect.
When you get 'We've got a technical problem' error msg, app doesn't work anymore. You have close & restart.
When only 1 size is left available, app doesn't display size. The only way to find out the size is to add the item to cart then go to cart to see the size.
No login is saved. User id should be saved. (Not a big deal).
