1. This oh-so-coveted Hydro Flask bottle
Regardless of whether you’re an avid outdoor enthusiast or not, you’ve likely heard of Hydro Flask. These water bottles are particularly excellent for keeping you hydrated on lengthy hikes and backpacking adventures. We dubbed two of the brand’s models (the Hydro Flask standard-mouth bottle with flex cap ($29.95) and the Hydro Flask 18-ounce wide-mouth bottle, also $29.95) as some of our favorite water bottles on the market. Currently, all Hydro Flasks and drinkware is up for grabs at 25% off at REI, with this Hydro Flask Skyline wine tumbler, once $29.95, dropping down to $16.93. It holds 10 fluid-ounces (two standard pours), and you can snag it in gray or black. Both colors feature the company's TempShield double-wall vacuum insulation, which will maintain your drink's desired temp for hours.
2. This super comfy camping chair
Designed for optimal comfort, this REI Co-op Camp X chair is on sale for $27.59, falling nearly $12 from its typical retail price of $39.50 in gray, green or red. At just 7 inches by 33 inches when folded up, this branded seat is travel-friendly. It utilizes "X-web" technology, which means it has X-shaped webbing at the back and bottom, providing for extra tension. It can hold up to 300 pounds and even comes complete with an integrated cup holder, which accommodates a variety of container shapes and sizes. This chair has garnered a steady 4.3-star rating from more than 150 REI shoppers, who described it as a great all-around camping chair, noting that it has excellent support.
3. Trail-ready running shoes
Runners know that wearing proper footwear for appropriate terrains is absolutely necessary to avoid injury and general discomfort. Lucky for you, this holiday sale extends to top-notch footwear for both men and women. These Brooks Caldera 3 trail-running shoes are discounted down to $69.83—that's a 50% markdown from $140! These highly-rated running kicks are ideal for rugged trails and contain moderate cushioning thanks to the Ariaprene (a form of über-plushy synthetic foam and rubber in shoes) mesh uppers, which provide breathability. 4.4-star ratings from customers note that they’re great running shoes, though they work well for walking and hiking on trails, too.
4. This roomy travel pack
Backpackers and frequent hikers, I just found your new favorite travel pack: Say hello to the REI Co-op Ruckpack 28. You can nab it for $59.93 right now, down $40 from its original price of $99.95. This backpack boasts a whopping 28 liters of capacity and features lightly padded shoulder straps, a ventilated back mesh panel, a waist belt that can easily be stowed away when not in use, dual water bottle compartments and compression straps. With a 4.4-star rating, one happy customer described this product as being “one the best packs I have ever owned.”
5. Coleman products
Perhaps one of the most exciting deals this has sale has to offer extends to the store’s stock of Coleman products (excluding fuel), which you can snag at up to 25% off. For instance, the Coleman dual-fuel 2-mantle lantern is on sale for $67.39, falling a full 25% from its retail price of $89.95. It can run on either unleaded gasoline or white gas, which makes refills far more convenient. It can burn for up to eight hours, too, and high ratings from REI customers suggest that it’s super easy to use.
6. This three-season tent
Camping tents often come with a lofty price tag, so any discount on these high-ticket items is always much appreciated. This REI Co-op quarter dome SL 1 tent currently has a rather substantial discount, dropping down to $209.29 from $299. It's a particularly notable markdown when you consider this tent’s many features, like the vertical sidewalls that create optimal space for elbows and the no-drip entryway that guards against precipitation. It also has a roof vent to help with airflow and plenty of interior storage pockets for supplies. It has garnered a 4.8-star rating from shoppers and includes a stuff sack, stakes, guylines and tighteners, a pole-repair tube, a pole bag and a stake bag.
7. This top-rated bike rack
Bikers will want to check out this Thule T2 pro XT 2-bike hitch rack (available in 1.25-inch or 2 inches) that's on sale for $495.89, falling an impressive $124 from $619.95 and marking the best price we could find from a trustworthy site. This rack can carry two bikes with ease thanks to its premium platform hitch. It’s most ideal for wide or fat-tire models that lock to the rack for total security when hitching them on. More than 200 reviews pledge for its quick and easy installation, too.
8. These insanely cozy socks
I’m a huge believer in investing in top-quality socks. For me, they’re just as important as the shoes you rock, especially when engaging in hikes, runs or other intense exercise. Right now, these highly-rated Balega hidden comfort socks are just $9.69 instead of their retail price of $12. If you’re wondering how a pair of socks could possibly warrant a 4.75-star rating from 233 customers, it’s due to their ventilation panels and moisture-wicking fabric. They even have protective cushioning at the toes, while the deep heel pockets and high heel tabs keep things comfortable with every step.
