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. Big Agnes Copper Spur 3P

I just added this tent to my backpacking repertoire and have been loving it. It’s perfect for two people who happen to have wider sleeping pads. My girlfriend and I were super scrunched in my 2P backpacking tent, but now we’ve got all the room. And best of all, it’s only a bit over three pounds.

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.

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 is 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 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!

13. 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!

14. 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.

Wrapping Up – REI Member Coupon Deals

I hope you can find some great gear to add to your adventure wardrobe or gear wall during the Sprig Sale. Remember to use your REI member coupon to score more deals.

Take care and happy trails!

Until next time adventurers, take care and be safe.
