The Best Of This Year’s 4th of July & Clearance Sale

Windmaster stove product image.

Soto Windmaster Stove — 25% Off

We think that the Windmaster is the best backpacking stove on the market. It’s super light, super efficient, and has excellent simmer control, so you’re able to do anything from sauteeing to boiling water. It’s under $50 during the sale, which is an awesome price for such a feature-packed stove.

ignik gas growler product image

Ignik Gas Growler Deluxe — 40% Off

Kick your addiction to those green disposable propane bottles and get yourself set up with a reusable propane tank–on sale for $89 right now. Not only will you help cut down on waste, but the cost of propane is so much less when purchased in bulk. Propane fills are available at most gas stations or U-haul locations.

Magma sleeping bag.

REI Magma Sleeping Bags — 40% Off

We think this is one of the best deals of the sale! REI’s Magma Sleeping Bags has an awesome warmth-to-weight ratio and features 850-fill power RDS down and is made from sustainable Bluesign-approved materials. At 40% off, it’s a high-quality budget-friendly backpacking sleeping bag during this sale!

Active Pursuits Quarter Zip product image

REI Active Pursuits ¼ Zip — 40% Off

I love this shirt. While I typically go for wool-based clothes, this is hands down one of the best synthetics I have ever worn. Runs, hikes, camping, anything where you want some sun protection. The fabric is incredibly soft and lightweight, with an almost cotton feel. And unlike other many synthetic shirts, it doesn’t start to smell the second a drop of sweat hits it. This shirt is worth the money even when it’s full price, so right now – at 40% off – it feels like a no-brainer.

Jet boil stove product image

Jetboil Stoves — 25% Off

Jetboil makes some of our favorite backpacking stove systems. They pack well, with all the pieces nestling inside the pot. More importantly, these stoves are super fuel efficient and boil water fast! There are a number of models to choose from–here are our favorites!

  • Jetboil Flash: This version is perfect for those who use just-add-water backpacking meals.
  • MiniMo: With the ability to control the burner’s output, the MiniMo is great if you like to do a little cooking on the trail in addition to boiling water.
  • Jetboil Stash: Made for lightweight backpackers, the Stash weighs only 7.1 ounces!
Wonderland Tent product image

Stanley cookset.

Stanley Even-Heat Camp Pro Cookset — 40% Off

The Even-Heat Pro is one of our favorite camping cook sets. It’s made of 3-ply stainless steel, so the pots and pan function a lot more like your at-home cookware.

The “Thermo Gills” feature lets us adjust the temperature without even unzipping the bag if things start getting too toasty.
