Fodor's Review

MEC (rhymes with "check"), the much-beloved Toronto spot for anyone remotely interested in camping, sells wares for minor and major expeditions. It's also a go-to spot for cycling gear. A baffling assortment of backpacks allows you to choose anything from a schoolbag to a globe-trotting sack. For $5, you get lifetime membership to the co-op. Try out the rappelling goods on the climbing wall.
