We all know the best part of camping is eating, right? But if you’re not a trained Boy Scout, then making a fire to cook your meals might be a little too far out of your comfort zone (especially if you’re hungry). That’s where the Coleman Triton InstaStart stove comes in to save the day. Large enough for 10- and 12-inch pots at the same time, and equipped with wind-block shields, this propane stove is all you need for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in between. Thanks to a 25 percent discount, this two-burner stove is only $71. If you’re looking for something a little more compact, however, the Jetboil Flash Cooking System is on sale for $75.

What do just about all outdoor adventures have in common? Aside from allowing you to become one with nature and free yourself from the stress of a bustling urban lifestyle, they all require a lot of space in your car for bulky gear. But not everyone has a gas-guzzling extended SUV. That’s where roof racks swoop in and save the day. During REI’s Labor Day Sale, roof racks, boxes, and accessories from Yakima and Thule are 20-percent off. This Thule Force L Roof Box is 16 cubic feet and long enough to fit your skis or snowboards. It was designed with fuel economy in mind, and to allow for clearing low bridges in sleek style.
