REI slashes prices on tents, backpacks, and gear for its Outlet sale

When it comes to outdoor gear, gadgets, and garments, there is really only one retailer you should be worrying about — REI. Not only does it house brands like Osprey, Hydro Flask, MSR, and Oakley, it also offers extremely generous discounts on all of those products from time to time. As we approach the last hurrahs of summer, now is a great time to nab some sweet savings on all of the outdoor gear you realized you needed while you were out on the trail. REI Outlet, in particular, provides hundreds of great backpacks, tents, hammocks, and jackets at affordable prices year-round, and with the REI Outlet sale going on right now, those prices have dropped as much as 70 percent.

From now until Monday, August 13, you can find handpicked gear at ridiculously low prices from REI. Stock flies off the shelves rather quickly, so if you’re interested in something, don’t hesitate — it could be gone by tomorrow.

The best tents on sale

REI Quarter Dome 1

Whether you’re camping with your family, friends, or by yourself, the tent is going to be your home base. There are many things you need to consider when buying a tent, however. If you’re going to be doing a lot of hiking and moving around, you need something light and portable that won’t slow you down. Whereas if you’re housing three to four people at a single campsite, you likely want something a little bit more heavy-duty. Whatever you need, you won’t find better deals on name-brand tents than what REI has right now.
