Big Agnes Frying Pan SL2 Tent with Footprint: $174 (30% Off)
Big Agnes makes some of GearJunkie’s favorite high-end tents. Naturally, the brand’s tech trickles down to its more affordable options, like the Frying Pan SL2. Big Agnes designed the Frying Pan for backpacking and car camping and claims it’s easy to set up. It has two doors, in case one of you needs to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, and reflective points make it easier to find the tent in the dark. Plus, there are mesh pockets, a ceiling pocket, and plenty of loops for hanging lights and your gear.
The Magma 850 is already a high-quality down jacket for a ridiculously low price. And now it’s 50 percent off. It’s kind of crazy. We tested one when REI originally released its own high-fill-power down jacket and were blown away by its warmth, weight, and cost.
REI Co-op Flexlite Macro Chair: $50 (50% Off)
Any good campsite is not complete without some camp chairs. These Flexlite Macro Chairs from REI fold up much smaller than the chairs you’re used to seeing on the sidelines of youth soccer games. But it doesn’t skimp on comfort or durability. The Flexlite Macro is rated to hold up to 300 pounds.
Leatherman Wave Plus Multitool: $80 (20% Off)
The Wave earned a spot in our best multitools article for good reason: It has a lot of utility for a reasonable price point. The steel is better than average on multitools with 154CM, and it also houses pliers, a saw, scissors, a file, screwdrivers, and more.
And what’s more, Leatherman tools come in handy in extreme cases. Just take Kenneth Harris. He rescued a child trapped under a vehicle, saving the boy’s leg from amputation thanks to the Leatherman Wave on his waist.
Smith Variance MIPS Helmet: $168 (20% Off)
Smith designed the Variance to increase protection without increasing the volume and weight. The result is Hybrid Shell, a technology in the Variance helmet. Additionally, Smith integrated MIPS into the Variance, so it reduces rotational motion to the brain during impacts.
With a fleece interior, the Co-op Cycles Thermal Tights should keep you warm as the temperature drops for chilly fall rides. Plus, because it’s darker now, you’ll likely be riding in the dark. Thankfully, the Thermal Tights also have 360-degree reflective trim for visibility from all directions. And don’t worry about sweating through the tights — these pants are made to dry quickly.
REI Co-op Flash Air Hammock: $100 (50% Off)
An afternoon in a hammock in the woods is time well spent. The Flash Air Hammock may be spendy for hammocks, but it’s also much more functional as a sleeping vessel. The Flash Air has a spreader bar to prevent cocooning. And it comes with a removable rainfly if the night turns stormy. The Flash Air is an awesome hammock camping option, and $100 is a steal.
Smith Range Snow Goggles: $60 (20% Off)
Ride powder with confidence in the Smith Range snow goggles. These winter goggles have vents in the lens to increase air circulation and limit fog. That means you spend less time kneeling over your goggles wiping away moisture and more time finding fresh pow.
Uvex Pheox Bike Helmet: $48 (63% Off)
Get a lot of bang for your buck with this nearly $100-off sale. The Pheox weighs 215 g, so you’ll barely notice it on your head. And it has 19 vents to keep your sweaty noggin cool. The pads are absorbent and hypoallergenic, and this helmet’s comfort closure opens and closes with the touch of a button.
Mammut Eternity Classic 9.8mm 70m Rope: $126 (30% Off)
Climb your sport project or quest up trad lines with the Mammut Eternity Classic tagging along. This 70-m rope has a black middle marker and meets or exceeds UIAA testing for falls, impact force, and elongation. The 70-m length should be long enough for nearly all single-pitch climbs in the U.S. And, unless you plan on ice climbing or having a rainy day epic, you shouldn’t need a dry-treated rope.
MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2-Person Tent: $279 (30% Off)
With a rating of 4.6/5 and 350 votes, the MSR Hubba Hubba NX two-person tent is one of REI’s top-rated products. This two-person backpacking shelter is lightweight at 3 pounds 7 ounces and easily fits into backpacks with an included ultracompact compression sack. The rainfly is 20-denier, so it’d be hard to tear. And you can go fast and light with the Hubba Hubba NX. MSR designed the tent to function with just the rainfly, poles, and footprint, resulting in a weight of 2 pounds 2 ounces. That’s light!
But if you’re car camping, the pole configuration maximizes headroom and elbow space throughout the tent. Talk about the best of both worlds. REI has 350+ discounted camping products right now — so many savings.
Your body might be working hard on the saddle, but that doesn’t necessarily stop the wind from chilling to the bone. The Co-op Cycles soft-shell is wind-resistant and water-repellent if the weather gets nasty. It should keep you warm before you really start to heat up on the bike, and vents on the jacket should dump heat well if you get too hot.
Smartwool Merino 250 Balaclava: $31 (30% Off)
A balaclava is your best friend during winter. Use it for skiing and cycling, or just chilly morning hikes. You can tuck it under helmets or wear it by itself, but it’s sure to keep your face, ears, and head warm and protected from the wind. Plus, the merino 250 from Smartwool feels great against the skin.
Pearl Izumi Elite Pursuit Bib Bike Shorts: $105 (25% Off)
Chafe-free comfort, muscle support: Those are the claims of Pearl Izumi’s Elite Pursuit Bib Bike Shorts. These bib shorts have a four-way stretch and high-density suspension foam chamois for comfort. And grippers on the ends of the legs keep the bibs in place. If you just want shorts they have those too. Men’s shorts are 25% off and women’s are 50% off now.
Dakine Fall Line Ski Roller Bag: $105 (25% Off)
You can fit two pairs of skis, a set of poles, boots, and outerwear in the Dakine Fall Line Ski Roller Bag. Let this be your go-to for powder-slaying missions that require some travel. Plus, it has a removable boot bag and a padded interior to keep your goodies secure.
