REI receives 5-Star Rating from recently awarded their highest five-star rating to REI, the industry leader in Camping Gear.

As life becomes more hectic, people often look to nature for relaxation, escape, and even a dose of adventure. Regardless of the level of expertise of the individual, camping always requires specific gear to make the experience safe and enjoyable for everyone involved. Rather than spending an entire day driving around town hoping that the right sleeping bag is in stock or looking for a tent that will withstand the elements, shopping for camping gear online makes finding the necessary equipment simple, fast, and often less expensive than a traditional retailer.

“REI is one of the most well-known names in the outdoor gear industry,” explained Brian Dolezal, of, LLC. “No matter what you need, REI is sure to have it. Their selection truly sets the standard in camping equipment, from well-known brands like Camelbak and North Face, to REI-brand gear. Not only is their selection fantastic, but their pricing easily matches or beats other online camping gear websites. 

“What really makes REI the place to shop online for camping equipment is the return policy: customers can get a full refund on returns within the first year of purchase, for any reason,” Dolezal continued. “Since REI has retail locations in most major metropolitan areas, making a return or an exchange is easy and inexpensive. REI should be at the top of every camper’s list for their equipment needs.”
