Very knowledgeable staff. Widest selection of items you'll find anywhere. Quality items at competitive prices. Best quality is the helpful staff.
We are always pleased with the quality and durability of MEC products. Their inner shells and fleece really keep out the cold even when we travel to eastern Canada at its coldest. The clothes are as stylish as they are practical.

Become a member of this cooperative, and you’ll join the legions of Canadians who can’t get enough of MEC’s endless supply of tools and equipment you didn’t even know you needed. With everything for your outdoor adventures from portable showers to saws that fold up to fit in the palm of your hand to no-spill camping wine glasses to GPS systems, it’s no wonder MEC die-hards are often referred to as “gear heads.” But hey, you never know when this stuff will come in handy.
From your headlamp down to your crampons, you can outfit yourself from head to toe at this sprawling Mecca for outdoor adventurers. The store’s comprehensive camping section is stocked with tents, sleeping bags, stoves, cooking supplies, packs, tools, electronics, hydration devices and even a selection of games to enjoy at your campground (think backpacks filled with bocce balls and roll-up magnetic dart boards). You’ll need to sign up a membership before you buy anything at this retail co-op, but $5 for a lifetime membership is definitely worth the investment. You’ll find MEC locations on West Broadway and in North Van.
