Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL 2 Tent: $290 (30% Off)
This is a sweet backpacking tent, and at this price, a solid bargain. For those who plan lots of hikes this fall, and into next spring and summer (heck, even winter), hop on this deal. Eight Big Agnes tent models are on sale at 25% off too, so check out the options on these quality tents.
REI Traverse Packs: $166 – $194 (30% Off)
The REI Co-Op Traverse Pack is a good, affordable option for an all-around hiking pack. Made in models from 65 to 80 liters, with men’s and women’s options, it fits the bill for a wide range of adventures. We’ve tested and like the pack, and at this significant discount, it’s a great deal.
Arc’teryx Beta AR Jacket Women’s: $400 (30% Off)
Arc’teryx jackets are expensive, and this one in Gore-Tex Pro fabric is cream of the crop. The Gore-Tex Pro shell is a tough layer to face the elements. Waterproof, breathable, and durable, it’s a top choice for alpinists, skiers, and mountaineers that spend days on end in miserable conditions.
Snow Peak Double Burner Stove: $280 (30% Off)
The Snow Peak Double Burner Stove uses two isobutane cartridges mounted under the stove for about 75 minutes of burn time on max power. Plus, it fires up with auto ignition. Each side boils a liter in 4 minutes, 43 seconds, and the valves make for an easy-to-control simmer.
Chaco ZX/1 Classic Men’s Sandals: $51 (50% Off)
Guys, if you need a new pair of Chacos, now’s your chance to score a deal. This double-strap version of the classic is half price. So grab some now, save some bucks, and be set for next summer’s heat. Don’t like this style? The classic Mega Z is also half off.
CRKT Homefront EDC Field Strip Knife: $56 (30% Off)
The Homefront EDC Field Strip Knife breaks down easily with no tools. This allows deep cleaning anywhere. It also happens to be a nice design, with a 3.5-inch stainless steel drop-point blade and glass nylon handle. It’s a very versatile knife; we’ve handled it and like the overall design. At this price, it’s a nice choice for a unique blade.
Marmot Whitecliff Men’s Shell Jacket: $165 (40% Off)
Do you wear small, large, or extra large? Score a deal on a nice shell. REI has three sizes of this 2-layer, waterproof, breathable shell. And if you fit the bill, this is a great choice for downhill skiing and snowboarding with an insulating layer.
Timberland Wheelwright Wide Calf Tall WP Boots: $100 (61% Off)
Steal these boots (well, practically). At 61 percent off, this is a heck of a deal for ladies who want a nice boot for casual winter wear. While more aimed at urban use, these Timberlands still rock waterproof construction and a “gripstick” outsole made with recycled rubber for traction.
deejo Tattoo Tribal 37g Knife: $30 (50% Off)
OK, OK, the tribal tattoo pattern is a little silly. But if you can look past that, this is a heck of a deal. The deejo knife is made from decent 420 stainless steel, and it’s crazy light at just 37 grams. This makes it perfect for hikers who don’t use a knife much but still need to carry one.
DAKINE Bronco Insulated Gloves: $32 (51% Off)
Gore-Tex gloves for half price at the start of ski season? Sign us up. These have good ratings on REI and have synthetic insulation to keep hands warm. They seem a little low-cut for deep pow, but at this price, these are a great second pair, or a solid choice to get you ready for the season.
Arc’teryx Cerium LT Vest: $148 (40% Off)
The Arc’teryx Cerium LT Vest combines 850-fill down with CoreLoft synthetic insulation where you need it the most. The synthetic fill is placed in moisture-prone areas, like the collar and shoulders, while the down fill insulates your core. Only a few sizes are available, but if yours is here, it’s a deal.
Outdoor Research Plaza Down Hoodie: $100 (50% Off)
The perfect addition to any fall wardrobe, the Outdoor Research Plaza Down Hoodie gives you warmth where you need it. Its 700-fill down keeps your core and attached hood nice and toasty while the fleece-lined sleeves allow your body to release additional heat.
Patagonia Houdini Pull-Over: $61 (30% Off)
The Patagonia Houdini Pull-Over packs a large punch in a small package. Throw this light layer in the bottom of your bag and pull it out when you need immediate protection from the elements. Weighing in at 2.9 ounces, you’ll barely notice it’s there.
These are some of our staff favorites, but there are hundreds of deals on the site now. Head on over to REI and grab a deal if you need to fill a hole in your gear closet.
