REI's parent company Vista Outdoors (also owns Savage Arms) wouldn't outright speak out against the NRA and so REI refuses to carry anything related to Vista. https://newsroom.rei.com/company-information/statements/rei-statement-on-relationship-with-vista-outdoor.htm

It's the worst form of corporate virtue signaling.

EDIT: Vista is not REI's parent company. That was my mistake as corrected below.

Incorrect, REI is virtue signaling against Vista Outdoors (owner of Giro, Bell, Camelbak, Camp Chef and Blackburn in addition to Savage Arms). Vista Outdoors does not own REI.

REI has asked their customers to choose between them, or their core beliefs. Seems like an easy choice to me. Fucking idiots.
