Osprey: Up to 40% Off Clearance; 25% Off Select Gear

Hikers with Osprey Backpacks

Standout deal: We personally like the Osprey Stratos 24 ($105). In our 2019 review, we noted, “This pack is built for day hikes, and it shows. The panel compartments open up for easy loading, and the various pockets keep everything organized.

“Osprey recommends this pack for loads around 10 to 25 pounds, which is plenty for a hike or travel day. The internal frame and mesh back do a good job keeping you cool even when fully loaded. Overall, it’s a great-looking, hard-working pack.”

Plus, it’s on sale now!

Solo Tove Ranger

Standout deal: Looking for a good fire pit? Check out the Solo Stove Ranger Fire Pit ($205). The Ranger fire pit is a generous (but not excessive) 15 inches wide, made of 304 stainless steel. The Solo Stove fire pit’s burn chamber is designed to help pull air through the vent holes. The Ranger comes with a nylon bag case for easy storage. This is Solo’s biggest sale of the year discount-wise, so if you want to buy a Solo Stove, now’s the time.
