They'll take stuff back for a full year even if it's trashed.

One thing you can't complain about REI about is their bomb proof return policy. Iv'e seen people bring shoes and boots back after wearing them for 5 months and are unhappy that the tread wore down to fast or the leather ripped or something of that nature....REI says "Cool. Here's your money back"

There are restrictions. I think you have to be a member. And I'm assuming they track how often you return used gear and will cancel your membership if you abuse it.

Keep in mind that's different from normal returns. I bought it, it didn't fit, and brought it back unused is WAY different than I bought it, used it for 4 months and hated it and brought it back. Normal unused returns go back on the shelf for the next customer. Used product returns are what they put in the yard sales they run every few months.
