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.
CONNECT WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE: Have questions? Use your phone as a phone! Call a friendly REI customer service representative with the touch of a button.
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.
What's New in Version 3.9

• Things just keep getting better! General usability enhancements and bug fixes improve your overall REI mobile shopping.
Login persistence lacking, other squabbles
You can browse merch and see star ratings, which is handy when you’re in the store and wondering if the piece of gear you’re drooling over is actually something you should buy. There’s a number of nits to pick: 1) The app doesn’t stay logged in 2) REI sends out beautiful nature shots regularly, but they’re low resolution and do not look crisp on modern devices 3) Notifications aren’t granular, so you can’t differentiate said nature shots from sales and the like 4) There’s no place to submit this kind of feedback, save for filling out a survey on OpinionLab (sure that’ll help).
Still no way to set any granularity for the notifications, I don't really care about the pic of the week, but I do want know about sales, garage sales specifically. Also no way to mark these notifications as read in bulk, I have 57 notifications and I'm not going to open them one by one. It's about as bad as the Starbucks app. To get rid of the silly red dot I'm just going to have to turn off notifications for the app entirely. No way to email for support, I don't have time to call.
I'll stick with the website for now.
Missing Apple Pay & TouchID support; good use of Passbook for membership
I downloaded it for its great use of Passbook to add my REI member card to Passbook. I've been carrying my 10+ year old "card" in my wallet and with as much use as I've been getting with it lately figured getting it in Passbook would be better.
If the app were to also include support for Apple Pay it would make it a complete buying experience by making it easier and more secure to purchase gear via the app.
