Garmin inReach Mini product image

This is the GPS tracker and satellite text messenger we took on the JMT and is one of our day hiking essentials. It allows us to track and share our location, send text messages to any phone number or email address via satellite, and offers the security of an SOS emergency beacon to alert search and rescue if anything were to go wrong. We take it with us on every trip we take into the backcountry!

30% off REI Co-Op Rainier Rain Jackets

REI Rainier Rain Jacket product image

The Rainier Rain Jacket from REI is a fully waterproof jacket that features a 2.5-layer breathable fabric (REI’s version of GORE-TEX). It features a hood that can be rolled up into the collar and pit zips for ventilation. REI offers men’s and women’s size jackets in a wide range of sizes including men’s tall, and women’s long and plus sizes. 

25% Off All Smartwool Clothing & Accessories

One of the best ways to take the edge off of winter is to set yourself up with a good pair of thermally insulating base layers. We both own a variety of different Smartwool products and plan on picking up some more this winter! 

Smartwool quarter zip product image

Merino Thermal Base Layer Quarter-Zip

We love these thermal quarter zip tops for all types of cool weather activities. Basically, it can go from being as open as a polo shirt to as snug as a turtleneck just by adjusting the zipper.  Perfect for staying active this winter.

Smartwool baselayer legging product image

Merino Thermal Base Layer Bottoms

Just like the Smartwool top, these base-layer bottoms are super comfy while providing a thin layer of warmth close to your legs. 

30% Off All REI Co-op Insulated Jackets

Staying warm this winter doesn’t have to cost a fortune. REI’s in-house line of insulated jackets and vests offers top-of-the-line performance at an incredible price.

Flash Insulated Hybrid Hoodie

This jacket has quickly become my go-to insulated jacket for around town and on shoulder-season hikes. It’s made with recycled materials and the synthetic PrimaLoft insulation makes it warm without any bulk.

REI 650 Down Jacket 2.0 product image

650 Down Jacket

Good, responsibly sourced down insulated jackets can be very pricey, but we think that REI’s 650 Down Jacket is the best bang for your buck (even when it’s not on sale!). It’s lightweight enough to be carried on backpacking trips, and we love that the shell fabric is made from recycled materials. I personally owned the earlier model of this jacket and it held up to many years of outdoor adventures. 

REI Powderbound Jacket 21 product image

Powderbound Insulated Jacket

Waterproof, windproof, and insulated, the REI Powderbound is a full-featured winter jacket that’s designed for the slopes. A comparable winter ski jacket can easily cost twice as much, so this is an incredible value. 

30% Off All REI Co-op Soft Storage & Duffels

REI Pack Away Cubes product image.

Pack Away Cubes

We love these REI Pack Away Storage cubes! They have some structure to them so they stand upright, but are still soft-sided for when you are really playing Tetris in the trunk of the car. They’re great for clothing, camp kitchen gear, and bedding.

Big Haul Duffel Bag product image.

Big Haul Duffel Bags

Great for road trips, air travel, or just a weekend away, these Big Haul Duffel bags are meant to stand up to travels of all kinds. They are made of super durable, recycled rip-stop nylon and feature removable backpack straps for easy carrying, as well as compression straps to help cinch everything down.

30% off REI Co-op Active Pursuits Long-Sleeve Quarter-Zip Pullover

REI Active Pursuits ¼ Zip

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 30% off – it feels like a no-brainer.

30% off REI Co-op Flash Insulated Hybrid Pants

REI Flash Insulated Pants

These are the pants we didn’t know we needed until we got a pair. There are some days when layering is needed–it’s cold when you start out in the morning but will warm up throughout the day. And then there are days you know are just going to be cold. That’s where these pants come in! They feature water-resistant fabrics and PrimaLoft synthetic insulation, so they are warm without being bulky. Perfect for winter hikes, snowshoeing, and chilly nights at camp.

30% off REI Camp Dreamer Slippers

Camp dreamer slippers product image.

These insulated slippers are perfect for cooler season camping trips, or to keep in the car to change into after a day in the snow.

25% off Salomon Cross Hike 2 Mid GORE-TEX Hiking Boots

Salomon Cross Hike 2 Mid Boot

This is a great waterproof boot for hiking in snow or in wet conditions. The materials and lug shapes are designed to provide good traction, and the fit is meant to be roomy and light while still offering great ankle support.

20% Off All Kahtoola Traction & Gaiters

With proper traction, you can keep hiking all winter long! Our relationship with winter has drastically improved after picking up a pair of microspikes. 

Kahtoola microspikes product image

Kahtoola MICROspikes Traction System

These easy-on, easy-off microspikes slip on right over your hiking boots and give you complete traction when traversing over snow and ice. Microspikes were a game-changer for us, allowing us to continue hiking throughout the winter.

25% off SOL Emergency Bivvy

SOL Emergency Bivvy

One of the ten hiking essentials is emergency shelter–and that’s even more important during the colder season when conditions can change quickly and unexpectedly. We always throw one of these emergency bivvies in our backpacks when we head out!

25% Off All Cotopaxi Fuego Hooded Down Jackets

Cotopaxi is a mission-driven B-corp that makes incredible outdoor apparel in a fun and vibrant color palette. This is a great opportunity to get a discount on this typically premium-priced gear. 

Cotopaxi Fuego product image

Fuego Hooded Down Jacket

Packed with 800 fill power of goose down, the Fuego is a stylish insulated down jacket that will keep you warm on the trail and around town. 

30% Off REI Co-op Magma 850 Hoodie 2.0

REI Magma 850 2.0 product image

The Magma 850 is the warmest and lightest that REI makes. Invest in a good winter jacket and you can reclaim an entire season of the year. So if you shivered all through last winter (or avoided going outside at all) this is the jacket for you!

30% off REI Co-op Brand Trail Packs

REI Trail Packs product image

REI’s Trail Packs are great for day hiking! The 25L is plenty of room for an extra layer or two, snacks, and your 10 essentials. If you’re hiking in colder weather that requires more layers and gear, or if you’re hiking as a family and need to carry clothes and gear for your little one(s), the 40L will provide ample space.

30% off REI Co-Op Flash Hybrid Tights

REI Flash Hybrid Tights product image.

These pants are great for hikers who prefer to hike leggings but need fabric & construction that is a little more durable. The Flash Hybrid Tights offer 50 UPF protection along with quick-drying, abrasion-resistant fabric, and a wide, soft waistband that sits comfortably under a backpack waist belt. I personally haven’t found any pilling or snags in them after over a year of use, and love them for shoulder season and cooler summer morning hikes.

30% off REI Magma Sleeping Bags

REI Magma Sleeping Bag product image.

Perfect for both backpacking and car camping, REI’s Magma Sleeping Bags are a great value–they are warm while being lightweight, and feature 850 fill water-resistant RDS down insulation. They come in both 15F and 30F temperature ratings.

30% off REI Co-op Siesta Hooded 20 Double Sleeping Bag

REI Co-op Siesta Double Sleeping bag

Snuggle up with the REI Co-op Siesta Hooded 20 double sleeping bag! It has plenty of room to stretch, turn, or sprawl out, in addition to being perfect for cuddlebugs. Rated down to 20 F degrees, making it a great option for cooler weather camping.

30% off REI Co-op Camp Dreamer XL Self-Inflating Deluxe Bed

Camping mattress

This insulated camping mattress provides 4 inches of luxurious padding, so say goodbye to those uncomfortable nights of tossing and turning in your tent. It’s self-inflating so you don’t have to spend a ton of time huffing and puffing to blow it up, either.

30% off REI Co-op Cool Trail Split Pack Cooler

Cooler backpack

Day pack on top, insulated cooler on the bottom, the Split Pack Cooler is designed for anyone who likes to enjoy good food and drink while out on the trail. Perfect for a trip to the beach, a hike up to a mountain lake, or just a park-side picnic.

30% off REI Co-op Kid’s Reversible Flash Jacket

Blue jacket

REI’s insulated Flash jacket is one of my favorite outdoor jackets, and now it comes in kids’ sizing! The durable ripstop fabric is water resistant and blocks the wind, and synthetic insulation means it doesn’t need to be babied like a down jacket. And, since it’s reversible, you get to have two colors of jacket in one!

MSR PocketRocket Stoves

MSR Pocket Rocket Deluxe

When it comes to backpacking stoves, few are as iconic as the PocketRocket series from MSR. We’ve personally used both their newly revamped PocketRocket 2 and PocketRocket Deluxe and think they are both fantastic stoves for the backcountry. If you’re thinking of upgrading your backpacking stove, either would be a great option.

REI Co-op Wonderland 4 Tent

REI Co-op Wonderland 4 Tent

If you’re looking for a camping gift for the whole family, an upgraded tent could be the ticket! REI Co-op’s Wonderland 4 Tent is their new, super livable family tent that has a ton of great features. With a floor space of 100″ x 100″ and near-vertical walls that give way to a standing height of 75″ (that’s 6′ 3″ –no more hunching over!) this tent feels plenty roomy. Additionally, it has two full-sized doors as well as zippered mesh windows that help with ventilation and let light in, but keep bugs out.

The North Face ThermoBall Eco Snow Triclimate 3-in-1 Jacket

The North Face Thermoball Jacket

The perfect solution for layering for winter hiking and activities, the Thermoball Eco-Snow Triclimate Jacket gives you lots of options–wear just the insulating jacket for cool weather, just the outer shell for rainy or windy days, or zip them together for a full-featured snow jacket perfect for cold, inclement weather or hitting the slopes. It’s a bit pricy, but with $100 off during the sale, it’s a pretty darn good deal for what is essentially three jackets in one!

Sea To Summit Aeros Premium Pillow

Sea to Summit Aeros Pillow product image

For camping, road trips, or long flights, the Sea to Summit Aeros is our favorite travel pillow. Soft, supportive, and cozy when inflated, it compacts down into a tiny stuff sack when stowed for travel. I used this pillow while hiking the John Muir Trail and 10 out of 10 it was definitely worth the weight.

25% off Cotopaxi Capa Insulated Hooded Jacket

Cotopaxi Capa Hooded Jacket

Cotopaxi’s Capa Insulated Hooded Jacket is a solid mid-layer piece for winter adventures. It features recycled materials, Primaloft synthetic insulation, and of course, Cotopaxi’s signature bold and vibrant color combinations!

Wallace Lake Waffle Sweater product image

Wallace Lake Waffle Sweater

The Wallace Lake Waffle Sweater is a great “cabin vibes” top to get you through the winter. 

20% Off All Yakima & Thule Roof Boxes, Racks & Rack Accessories

Thule Rooftop Box product image

The best way to convert your daily driver into a full-fledged “adventuremobile” is to put a roof cargo box on it! Right now REI has discounts on both Yakima and Thule boxes, racks, and accessories. These can be big-ticket items so that 20% off can really make a difference.
