1. Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket

Nothing beats a puffy jacket from Patagonia. These are durable and warm and will be your go-to jacket for hiking in the alpine this summer.

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!

Save almost $300 on this bike rack during the May REI Sale. If you’ve been thinking of adding a rack to your car to hit the trails, this is the time to pull the trigger!

5. Big Agnes Rapide SL Sleeping Pad

I love my Big Agnes sleeping pad, and this is the next generation of it. Mine’s been cruising for over six years, and if you’re looking for an investment, this is one to invest in. You can’t go wrong here!

6. DELTA Pro Portable Power Station


Whether it’s for tailgate parties or enduring multi-day power outages, the EcoFlow DELTA Pro portable power station has you covered both at home and outdoors. Its expandable capacity ensures it can meet all your energy needs. If you’re looking for a powerhouse of power station, this is one for you!

Hit the trails with music or a podcast and don’t let outside noises distract you. These headphones are top-tier and won’t fall off your head.

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.

9. MSR Ascent Snowshoes

I have these, and I friggin love them. The basket at the front helps keep your toes aligned the entire time and makes it super easy to get in and out of them. Yes, they’re a bit pricey, but at 20% off, I would HIGHLY recommend snagging these!

10. Big Agnes Lost Ranger 3N1 0 Sleeping Bag

Needing a zero-degree sleeping bag to keep the adventures going into the winter months? This zero-degree bag by Big Agnes is a top contender and also cheaper than other alternatives. The long weighs just over four pounds, while the regular weighs just under four pounds.

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!

11. 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.

12. Patagonia Powder Town Jacket – Women’s

Designed for versatility and mobility, the Patagonia Insulated Powder Town women’s jacket ensures warmth and protection with its 2-layer weatherproof shell, strategic insulation, and articulated fit. This jacket costs $400 originally but will be around $200. If you need one, this is the one to get!

13. Flame Fm I Down Sleeping Bag – Women’s & Men’s

This is a top tier, ultralight sleeping bag and one that you can get for almost half off. It’s less than a pound and has 850-goose down, which is phenomenal. If you need a bag, get this one ASAP!

For the Men’s version, it’s a little heavier and less down, but also less expensive.

14. Mountain Hardwear Down Jackets- 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.
