- We really like the REI in central Austin. They always have wonderful sales for their good quality out door sporting goods.
- Great store for all your outdoor needs. Tents set up in the store so you can really see what you are getting. Lots of backpacks, clothes, chairs and gear. They also have a complete bike shop onsite that offers repairs and equipment.
- Expensive. But awesome. Their clothing is extremely durable, high quality, and very comfortable. Mens sweaters, pullovers, vests, tees, are stylist yet functional. Does not matter if you're walking all 1800 miles of the Appalachian Trail or going out to dinner, this brand is an appropriate option.
I like Carhartt, but I find some of their products too rigid and bulky. Patagonia performs just as well and will keep you warm without feeling like you are wearing a sheet of canvas.
Their recycled clothing program is pretty cool as well.
