REI’s Anniversary Sale is the biggest sale of the year. The annual event discounts hundreds of incredible outdoor products. We hand-picked the best gear and deals for your shopping pleasure.
This is a great chance to save on any wishlist gear that isn’t discounted during the sale. The sale days run from May 15 to 25, but the best gear sells out quickly, so we suggest you shop the REI sale early.
Half-Off Deals at the REI Anniversary Sale
All Nalgene Water Bottles: 50% Off
No hike is complete without hydration, and a Nalgene is a light, durable solution. This 32-fluid-ounce water bottle is a no-frills bottle that stands up to drops and bumps, but there are plenty of sizes on sale now. Plus, it’s available in a number of colors and designs.
REI Roadtripper 40L Duffel: $22 (50% Off)
Clocking in at less than 25 bucks, this duffel is an amazing deal. The heavy-duty CORDURA fabric is rugged enough that it can take a beating as checked luggage and keep on packing. The shoulder straps can easily be removed when not in use.
And the entire duffel packs down into its own side pocket for easy storage. Stash one in the car just in case or toss it in your suitcase to carry home souvenirs. You can’t beat a simple, lightweight, durable duffel for 50% off.
Summer is nearly here, and that means sandals. These leather sandals keep feet happy with a sculpted footbed and grippy rubber sole. And you’ll feel good knowing that each pair of sandals sold supports Freewater’s clean drinking projects in Kenya, Haiti, and the Phillipines.

We’ve brought the Houdini on hiking, biking, and climbing trips for years and can say that it’s versatile and downright awesome. You can also save big on a bunch of other Patagonia gear during the A-Sale.
All Arc’teryx Gear: 25% Off
Arc’teryx makes premium gear that works as well on a mountaintop as it does on a day hike. For good reason, it’s expensive and doesn’t go on sale often. All full-price Arc’teryx gear is at least 25% off right now, but it’s limited to in-stock items. Get it before it’s gone!
Black Diamond ReVolt Headlamp: $49 (25% Off)
A headlamp is another versatile piece of gear that everyone should own. The ReVolt shines with 300 lumens and has different light settings as well as the all-important red light. Plus, it’s rechargeable. Get one for camping season, your go bag, or for around the house.
Smartwool Socks: 25% Off
All Smartwool socks are 25% off until May 25, so stock up now. The Smartwool Hiking sock (above) is a humble hiking sock: It’s not flashy, but it will certainly get the job done. Merino wool works wonders and makes socks comfortable and soft, mile after mile. And if you’re backpacking, these should be your go-to because of wool’s natural anti-stink properties.
