Outdoor Outfitter

About Us

At Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI) we believe a life outdoors is a life well-lived!

We believe that it’s in the wild, untamed and natural places that we find our best selves, so our purpose is to awaken a lifelong love of the outdoors, for all.

Since 1938, we have been your local outdoor co-op, working to help you experience the transformational power of nature. We bring you top-quality gear and apparel, expert advice, rental equipment, inspiring stories of life outside and outdoor experiences to enjoy alone or share with your friends and family. And because we have no shareholders, with every purchase you make with REI, you are choosing to steward the outdoors, support sustainable business and help the fight for life outside.

Get to know the people, wildlife, and natural history of the San Francisco Bay Area. We do all the packing and planning! All you need to do is show up and have fun!

Spending time outside with amazing people is the ultimate stress reliever. Join us for an outdoor class, guided day trip or virtual event - Classes and Day Trips, Hiking Trips, Bike tours & classes, Backcountry navigation.

REI Co-op Experiences provide you with endless possibilities to explore the outdoors and all that the beautiful and iconic San Francisco Bay Area has to offer.
