This place is great, I bought a sleeping bag from here a couple years ago and it is the best sleeping bag I have ever owned
A large selection of quality products. You pay for what you get. The staff is so friendly, knowledgeable and able to offer you first hand experience about the products they sell. I've been lucky to find exactly what I needed. The clothing is very comfortable and keeps you warm and dry.
I love shopping here, you always find what you are looking for thanks to the amazing service! Great quality products and clothing as well.
A little pricy but a fantastic store. Excellent customer service. They help you find exactly what you are looking for and ask questions to help find the perfect thing. I always stop there when in Winnipeg visiting family.
great place and the people there are very helpful and nice. great stuff there to buy! i love going in that store!
I love this organization! I have been shopping from them for years having worked in the outdoor industry as an outdoor educator and find if I have a problem with a product they have way above average response such as replacing the product or exchanging products like climbing gear that other stores don't because they cant re sell it. I do find if your looking for a lot of expertise in fitting gear or outfitting climbing gear there not that great and it is very hit and miss but overall a really great line of stores and a great community
This company is amazing, and makes beautiful quality outdoor products. My boyfriend just got a pair of snow shoes for Christmas, and has put them through hell & high water - and they are still in mint condition. I would highly recommend this company for anyone shopping for outdoor adventure gear, etc. Amazing!
MEC is an awsome, Canadian, sports and outdoor store! They make great outing gear and knapsacks, all at a great price! This is the place to get your gear. The stuff is built to last. If you need sporting equipment, a bag, camping stuff or anything else along those lines MEC is the place to go!
I still continue to love this store, in fact I LOVE it more than I did before! It is the best place to get backpacking gear if you decide to take a trip. I bought all my stuff here before I went backpacking through Europe. The stuff is cheaper than many other backpacking/camping stores. The staff are very knowledgeable and will help you to the best of their ability.
You have to play a membership here to purchase anything. It's only $5, but it goes towards keeping the cost low. Another great thing is that they have a life long guarantee. If a backpack doesn't last, then you can simply bring it back to them and they will check it out for you. The only down side to this store is that it can be overwhelming if it is your first time here. Don't be intimidated by the massive size and amounts of merchandise... just ask someone to help you with what you are looking for.
Another thing I can't stand is that it gets really really busy here at times, and some of the lines can be painfully long (especially on weekends!). Oh well.... I guess there's a reason why...
