Tips

  • MEC staff are amazing, lots of my blind friends shop here too!
  • Get your running gear here. Great selection of men's stuff, all seemingly 20% less than what you'd pay at The Running Room. Plus, MEC has minimal and "barefoot" shoes.
  • The $5 lifetime membership is well worth it. Their packs are extremely well priced given the quality, and the staff are all well seasoned travelers with great tips to offer
  • Go to MEC and make sure you buy the $5 lifetime membership. You need to be a co-op member in order to buy anything. It's not a regular retail store.
  • One of the few places in Toronto where I can find small Nalgene water bottles. MEC clothes are nice.
  • Every tourist should take out a $5 membership as the value and quality is great. Beijing outdoor stores have nothing on these guys. I'll be back!
  • don't go on pay day...
  • New store features a free bike repair stand just outside with air and tools
  • Join! Just the selection of tote bags alone is worth it. I've been a member since the 70s.
  • You care about health and the environment. Do you also like a good party for a good cause? @EarthDayCanadas Gala is happening on June 6 at The Drake. Dont miss out! http://bit.ly/KSVhVK
  • Full of urban hipsters. Try the Barrie location for peace and quiet.
  • Best hit dog stand outside
  • Dogs are no longer permitted starting Jan 1, 2011 :(
  • Go on Saturday between 1pm and 4pm. Bring a small child. Let them try out the indoor climbing wall for free!
  • Always fun to browse at all sorts of outdoor related gadgets and gear, at a reasonable price.
  • They have a green roof you can visit! It's dope, do it
  • Actually a co-op! Has the most durable bags and quality hiking/outdoorsy gear, my bag still looks new 10 years later!
  • For all of your backpacking needs.
  • Outdoor activity equipment and clothing and accessories
  • It is nice, but doesn't have as much store brand equipment, like REI.
