REI Coop’s iconic tents are the best camping deals at this year’s REI Anniversary Sale. Also on sale are all Footprints and accessories for camping (the list is extensive). Prices range from sub-$200 to $500+ depending on size and model, and there’s never been a better time to grab a large-group tent like the Base Camp 6, which will be more than $150 off its normal $549 pricetag. this sale is to The brand’s smaller tents are compact and light enough to fit in a standard backpacking pack without adding much weight, but spacious enough for campers and gear (because no one likes to leave their pack outside in the rain). The two-person Trail Hut is durable and competent, without the flashiness or added features (read: added weight) of higher-end or sport-specific tents. It’s less than half the price of comparable tents from established outdoor brands.

Summer evenings can be chilly if you’re camping at high elevations (or just outdoors in a strong wind). The Cotopaxi Abrazo fleece counteracts that chill by keeping you warm and dry, and brightly stylish to boot. The Abrazo comes in half-zip or full-zip options with two pockets for your paws. It’s super versatile since you can wear it year round — just use it as an insulative layer under your thinner ski shells come winter. For under $80, that’s a heck of a deal.

Also, this is the time to grab that puffy jacket you’ve been eyeing for next winter. Cotopaxi’s robust line of Fuego down jackets are 25 percent off during the REI Anniversary Sale, as well. And the brand is known for being an industry-leader in both environmental sustainability and social justice.
