The Calgary store established an initial presence with a U-Haul trailer full of gear driven out from Vancouver. Initial digs were minimal – a cramped office space above a record store – a far cry from the present location, which is a veritable palace of outdoor gear.

This is a big store, they have LOTS of outdoor (and indoor) sporting / camping equipment. Best selection around, and clothing rotates through the seasons so there's always something new.

pssst, i have a secret

this store has the best footbags (hacky sacks) you'll find anywhere, but you would probably never guess. Other than that little gem, they are the #1 store for outdoor equipment in my opinion, and many others'. Absolutely the best quality and pricing is reasonable. Lots of variety throughout the seasons too.

The best outdoor store on the planet. Please open a shop in the US!

Fantastic selection, easy to find, and great staff. Not the least bit arrogant like REI. Good prices, especially MEC brand which is high quality. Overall awesome. Can San Francisco be your first US location, pretty please?

Good Service and Helpful Staff their online inventory system is accurate as well as they stand behind their products. I bought a bike helmet there three weeks later the outer shell detached from the foam I brought it back it and got a refund no problem.

I would recommend them for sure!

Today MEC supplies outdoor equipment to over 3 million members worldwide.

Mission: to help people enjoy the benefits of self-propelled wilderness-oriented recreation. We do that by selling outdoor gear,... more
