While the REI Anniversary Sale is going on with massive discounts (see my 32 items to get here), REI members get an REI member coupon that provides them 20% off any full-priced item and 20% off any REI outlet item.
UPDATE: The May Sale is over, but the Annual 4th of July sale runs from June 23 – July 4. Find the best deals with this sale here.
This means you can snag some incredible gear that isn’t discounted for 20% less. I call that a steal! Below are the 13 items I’d use my REI member coupon on.
When you check out, make sure to use Promo Code ANNIV23.
Top 13 REI Gear Picks You Shouldn’t Pass Up with your REI Member Coupon
How long does this REI Member Coupon Last?
The REI Anniversary Sale goes until May 29th, so don’t wait too long. There are already some items that have gone out of stock. Don’t be caught empty-handed!
Make sure you’re an REI member.
Before you start, make sure you’re an REI member. If not, you’ll want to add it to your car. It’s a one-time $30 cost, and you’ll be a lifelong REI member. It offers fantastic benefits (like this sale) and access to Member-Only gear.
REI – New Gear for your Excursions
1. LOWA Renegade GTX Mid-Hiking Boots
This is the backpacking boot I have used since 2019, and it’s taken me to some pretty grand places with no issues at all. It’s waterproof, sturdy, supportive, and keeps my feet happy. Of course, it’s not cheap at $255, but this is why you’ll want to use your REI member coupon.
2. Gregory Baltoro 65L/Gregory Deva 60
This is also my backpacking pack; I have had it since 2018, which shows how damn good it is. I’ve easily clocked over 300 miles backpacking in it and will use it again this summer. This size is perfect for a four-day trip!
3. YETI Tundra 65 Cooler
We all know how expensive YETIs are, so now is the best time to snag one. While this is big, it’ll keep your food cool all weekend, and you won’t have to fret about ice while camping.
4. Goal Zero Yeti 500x Power Station
Keep everything charged for the weekend or longer while you’re out adventuring and off the grid. Or, for those living where the power can go out, this is a perfect short-term use to keep your tech accessible. It’s $550, so you’ll save over $100 with your REI member coupon.
5. Garmin Forerunner 955
Were you planning to run your first half marathon, marathon, or triathlon? Then, this is the watch for you. With GPS, long battery life, plus LOADS of features, you’ll love it. My first Garmin was a Forerunner, and I used it extensively during my two half marathons.
6. MSR Hubba Hubba 2P UL Tent
This is a phenomenal tent that will last you a long while – so view this as an investment. It’s pricey, but the 20% off makes it more manageable. My brother and I spent a summer backpacking in this, so I highly recommend it.
7. Jet Boil Flash
My go-to for prepping meals during backpacking trips. It’s best for boiling water quickly – which it does in about 90 seconds. If you use dehydrated meals, your jet boil is the perfect companion.
8. Camp Chef Mountaineer 2X Stove
Perfect for car camping or overlapping. It’s all aluminum, making it easy to transport, and the dual burners help cook multiple items simultaneously. Make sure to pair it with a propane canister like this one.
REI Outlet – Gear For Your Next Adventure
These items are already discounted, and you can apply your 20% off coupon for one of these for an additional discount. I sorted by price, high to low, to find the highest-priced gear and to see what deals were out there!
9. Patagonia Fleece Pullover
There are few things more comfortable than a Patagonia fleece pullover. I love mine, and if you don’t have one yet, you might as well get one 20% off of an already discounted price.
10. Marmot Xenon 15 Sleeping Bag – Women’s
You cannot score a $510 sleeping bag for $300 every day. This is a steal of a bag, and I’d be running with your REI member coupon to buy this if you need a backpacking sleeping bag. It’s lightweight and warm, so you’ll be set for all three seasons besides winter.
The men’s bag is slightly less expensive than the women’s.
11. Patagonia Untracked Jacket – Women’s
There are always so many good steals on gear after the season is over. This is a $650 ski jacket that will be around $350. If you need one, this is the one to get!
12. Mountain Hardwear Cloud Bank GORE-TEX Insulated Jacket – Men’s
Another ski jacket that is on sale for a MASSIVE discount. For the winter readers, this is a goldmine inside the REI outlet. Mountain Hardwear makes great stuff, so you’ll have this for a while!
13. Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer/2 Down Jacket – Men’s
Grab this one if you need a top-of-the-line down jacket! You’ll be warm for your early morning ascents or alpine backpacking trips. With 800-fill, not many more down jackets provide this much warmth.
