Our Favorite REI 4th of July Sale Deals

Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2: $318 (40% Off)

Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2

A favorite among our tent testers, this three-season tent is valued for its strength in an ultralight build (3 pounds, 2 ounces). The two-person design has two doors, two vestibules, a high-volume hub, and ripstop nylon fabric.

Plus, it’s also easy to set up thanks to details like the TipLok buckles, which help secure your poles in place. Vestibule doors and high fly vents offer different ways to create or tamper airflow. And interior loops create lots of stashing options to keep gear within reach.

If you’re looking for other tent deals, check out the 40% savings on MSR tents like the Hubba Hubba 2, or the time-tested and value-minded REI Co-op Half Dome SL 2+ with Footprint (down 30% to $244).

YETI Camino Carryall 35 Tote

Members can save 20% on one full-price YETI cooler, like the Camino Carryall 35 tote.

Make any adventure’s dirty work a little easier. The Carryall is an all-purpose, waterproof tote that can shield contents from splashes or isolate dirty wet gear like suits or boots for the ride home. Additionally, an internal divider lets you do a bit of both.

YETI is known for its rugged take on products, hence the Camino Carryall is made from the brand’s ThickSkin shell, which is puncture-resistant and easy to wipe clean. A molded EVA bottom helps cushion the contents and hold the bag upright. CrossBar handles let you carry the tote close, while the standard longer handles are made for carrying over a shoulder.

Osprey Farpoint 55 & Fairview 55 Travel Packs: $165 (25% Off)

Osprey Fairview and Fairpoint Backpacks

Osprey put a lot of its hiking know-how into these travel backpacks. The brand’s 4mm LightWire peripheral frame helps transfer the load from the harness to hipbelt while an internal framesheet distributes the load across the entire back panel.

The back panel has foam ridges covered in mesh to create airflow between the pack and your back. Padded handles make it easier to carry from the top or sides.

Its internal organization is made for travel, and a detachable daypack offers a smaller pack within a pack for streamlined mobility. Internal straps help hold certain gear in place, while a large panel zip lets you access the pack’s main compartment. Smaller zip pockets let you keep important items together and within easy reach.
