Yeah, I've had an REI gift card for must be over 10 years that I'm still working on (birthday present). I go in there once in a while, seldom buy anything. Most of what they sell isn't in my wheel house or is too expensive, I'll find cheaper elsewhere, although maybe not as high quality. In Berkeley I'm very unlikely to be riding in the rain in temperatures below 45 F.
