The best deal of the summer: 20 amazing outdoor gear items currently on sale at the REI Outlet

For those who may not know, the REI Outlet is a hidden gem of fantastic deals on items that are either discounted or last year’s gear. There are some incredible hiking, backpacking, camping, and traveling items available. And best of all, they’re heavily discounted. I’ve spent A LOT of time looking through REI, finding and organizing the best deals for you to shop.

Better yet, REI offers a sweet deal to offload some of their gear before getting new ones later this year. Learn everything you need to know about the REI Outlet below.

What is the REI Outlet?

The REI Outlet is full of great deals on last year’s perfectly good items, but REI needs to get them off the shelves. I personally LOVE buying from the outlet because you can get some dang good steals.

2. Big Agnes Insulated Q-Core Deluxe Sleeping Pad (30% off)

I absolutely love this sleeping pad, which is an updated version of my trusty one from 2018 that still works great. I highly recommend this Big Agnes pad as it feels like sleeping on a cloud and has provided me with many restful nights.

It’s worth noting that the pad is on the wider side, which may make things a bit snug for couples sharing a 2P tent. Originally priced at $220, it’s now available for the steal of a price of $130 on REI Outlet!

3. Darn Tough Hiking Socks – Men’s and Women’s (22+% off)

Hiking socks are never flashy, but they’re one of the most important parts of hiking and spending time outdoors. And Darn Tough is my go-to for hiking socks. They’re wool, which means they keep your feet dry and not smelly – a perfect combination in my eyes.

4. Merrell Hiking Boots/Shoes/Trail Runners – Men’s and Women’s (26%+ off)

Maybe your hiking boots took a turn for the worse this spring while doing waterfall hikes or enjoying the cooler weather on the trails. Snag a great new pair at a discount below and hit the trails this summer with a fresh grip! One of the top deals a the REI Outlet Sale 2023.

5. Osprey Hiking Packs (25% off)

Realized your hiking pack is too small? Maybe it doesn’t fit anymore? Or, maybe you’d added a new kiddo to the family. All Osprey packs (including child carriers) are on sale! This means on top of the 25% off; you can score an extra $20 off.

6. Running Shoes from HOKA, Altra, Brooks, and Salomon

For some of you, summer might not be running season (I get it, I used to live in Arizona), but for others (now me in Seattle), it’s the only time we can run. So, if this is you, and you want some new running shoes, take a peek below!

7. Hiking Footwear (Up to 45% off)

I know, I know, I did one whole thing for Merrells. But I wanted to make it easier for you to browse your hiking boots/shoes. I organized this by the biggest percentage off. Almost all the big brands are included here!

8. Smartwool Gear (Up to 60% off) STEAL ALERT

Smartwool is one of the best company’s out there. Their gear is incredibly durable and made with the utmost quality. I own half a dozen of their products. Whenever you can find wool on sale, you NEED to jump at it. They’ve got a good variety of gear available for a solid discount. Another great REI Outlet Sale 2023 deal.

9. Gregory Backpacking Packs (25% off) STEAL ALERT

I have a Gregory Baltoro 65L, and it’s going into its sixth season! I love it and can’t recommend it enough. Below are both women’s and men’s backpacking packs.

Quick rundown: 55L-65L+ is good for a three to four-day trip.

10. Big Agnes BigHouse 4 Tent (30% off)

One of the best tent makers on the planet, Big Agnes’s 4P Tent looks big enough to stand up in. This makes changing and moving around super simple. This three-season car camping tent is good for spring through fall – and with enough blankets and no snow, year round!

To score this from Big Anges is a win at the REI Outlet Sale 2023.

11. Mountain Summit Cookset and TableWare (21% and 25%)

Get all you need to cook and eat with the Mountain Summit Cookset and Mountain Summit TableWear. This isn’t fancy, but who needs fancy when they’re camping? I’ve got the Tableware set, and I’m sure it’ll last me until I die!

12. MSR Trail Base Water Filter Kit – 4L (26% off)

A really nice gravity filter kit with the extra on-trail water filter. I have the 10L and have loved it. The 4L will be less weight but still perfect for all backpackers!

Make sure to clean/test it out before you use it each trip so you’re not stuck without one.

13. Sleeping Bags from various brands (up to 45% off)

Most of these are car camping sleeping bags or heavier backpacking ones. Ideally, for backpacking, you want around a 20-degree bag and less than 3 pounds. For car camping, size and weight don’t matter.

14. Smith Soundtrack Polarized Sunglasses (26% off)

Keep those eyes safe this summer with polarized sunglasses from Smith. One of the best brands out there for glasses, this is a stellar deal!

15. Icebreaker Wool Products (Up to 50% off)

Just like Smartwool above, Icebreaker is dang good too. I wanted to add this in just because Smartwool’s products might be limited, and I honestly believe everyone should have as much wool gear as possible. It does the most bang for your buck (and it is not cheap).

This is one of the better REI Outlet Sale 2023 deals!

16.ALPS Mountaineering Meramac 5 Tent (30% off)

I have this exact tent but in the 4P size. It’s big enough to fit a queen air mattress and also fit your duffel bags. This is only a car camping tent, as your back would be dead if you tried to backpack it. But it’s super reliable. My first one lasted 5 years and just re-upped again.

(I linked both below just in case you don’t need a 5P size.)

17. BioLite Headlamp 750 (25% off)

You won’t have any problem seeing the trail or campsite with this BioLite headlamp! With 750 lumens, you’ll be able to crush miles with ease!

18. All water-related products (Up to 79% off)

While it’s already summer, you might be missing a key piece of your beach or lake wear. Take a look at the water-related gear below.

19. Gregory 120L Duffel (25% off)

Having a reliable duffle bag when you travel is key, and Gregory is known for their quality gear! This size is on the larger end, but would be great for a week trip plus some hiking boots or other gear.

20. Winter sports/Winter Gear (Up to 60% off)

Just flagging this one last in case some of you are looking ahead and want a nice deal on some winter attire. Buying gear in the offseason is one of the best ways to save some money. I sorted by biggest discount. This REI Outlet Sale 2023 is crazy good!
