Our Top REI Anniversary Sale Picks, At A Glance


REI Anniversary Sale: Our Apparel Picks

A Durable Shell For Year-Round Outdoorsmen

North Face Alta Vista Jacket (Men's)

While this waterproof shell can be worn over layers in colder months, the breathable fabric and armpit vents make it a handy tool for summer outings as well. The hood, side-hem and cuffs are adjustable as well to help you get the fit just right. And when the weather passes, this jacket folds down for easy storage back in your pack.


Stylish Shorts For The Trail And Beyond

Outdoor Afro + REI Co-op Trail Shorts (Men's)

These pull-on shorts are made of moisture-wicking, 2-way stretch fabric with an elasticized waistband allowing for freedom of movement wherever the outdoors take you. With multiple zippered pockets and water-repellent properties, however, these are functional shorts that can stand up to everyday wear as well.


Quick-Drying Shorts That Pack Down Small

The North Face Rolling Sun Shorts (Men's)

These lightweight shorts are made for warmer days in the outdoors or water-adjacent activities where things might get wet—or, ideally, both at once. Its textured, dobby fabric raises the shorts from the skin for quicker drying while shedding moisture with water-repellent properties. They also pack down into a zippered stow pocket, making for easy packing while traveling.


Durable Hiking Pants You Can Wear Three Ways

Outdoor Voices RecTreck Zip-Off Pants (Women's)

These high-rise hiking pants are windproof, moisture-wicking and can be worn as either shorts, capris or full-length pants. Bungee cinches along the ankles allow you to modify the silhouette between a straight leg or cinched look, while several pockets provide storage for phones, keys and trail snacks.


A Sturdy Pair Of Hiking Socks With A Minimal Footprint

REI Co-op CoolMax EcoMade Hiking Socks

These sweat-wicking socks are reinforced along the heels and toes to keep your feet blister-free hike after hike. A seamless toe construction prevents chafing while lightweight cushioning provides compression and support without bulky fabric. And you can rest easy knowing these socks are made from recycled water bottles.


A Packable Hat For Shade Wherever You Need It

Chaos Krystal Hat (Women's)

Packable and crushable, this lightweight hat can travel with you and provide much-needed shade in the warmer months. Choose from four earth-toned colors to match your summer wardrobe.


A Casual, Quality Cotton T-Shirt For Less

The North Face Heavyweight T-Shirt (Women's)

Casual and cool, this relaxed cotton t-shirt is a summer go-to. While you’re limited to only two colors, this discount is the best price you can find online.


A Streamlined Nike Sports Bra On Sale

Nike Indy V-Neck Bra

With medium support and a soft, stretchy fabric, this Nike sports bra is great for casual runs and other moderate workouts. It’s currently on sale in sizes XS through XL.


Breezy Summer Shorts In Attractive Hues

The North Face Rolling Sun Packable Shorts (Men's)

These quick-drying shorts are perfect for summer adventures. They’re made of a moisture-wicking UPF 40 fabric and can pack into their own zippered pocket for travel. (Heads up: You can score khaki stone, shady blue and black for $10 less direct from The North Face, but this deal is the best price we’ve found for every other color.)


A Stylish Patagonia Vest For 50% Off

Patagonia Lost Canyon Insulated Vest (Women's)

Patagonia vests are a staple in many outdoor lovers’ closets for a reason: They’re stylish, regulate body temperature well and are durable enough to last for years. We spotted this bold orange color, which is sure to help you stand out on the trails or on a run, on sale for 50% off.


REI Anniversary Sale: Our Outdoor And Travel Gear Picks

Compact Binoculars To Enjoy Wildlife From A Distance

Nikon Trailblazer ATB Waterproof Binoculars

These binoculars provide 8x magnification but pack down to fit within your front pocket, making them handy for spotting wildlife, sporting events, fishing or whatever other outdoor adventure awaits you. Rubber coating adds shock resistance for magnifying on the go, while anti-reflective compounds within the lens provide a sharp image.


A Camping Tent With Headroom To Spare

REI Co-op Skyward 4 Tent

While most camping tents require some hunching over to enter and exit, REI’s 4-person Skyward tent comes with enough headroom that a 6-foot 5-inch person could stand up inside. Near-vertical walls further maximize inside area, making for a spacious shelter in the backcountry of your choice. An over-door awning means boots can stay outside, while bug-proof mesh ceiling panels ensure bugs do, too.


A Hearty Rolling Bag For Off-The-Beaten Path Travel

Eagle Creek Tarmac XE Wheeled Luggage (65 Liters)

This 65-liter rolling bag (checked, not carry-on) is packed with features designed for travel on the rugged side. All-terrain wheels help it roll smoothy over uneven surfaces while a crushproof handle allows you to travel in peace knowing it won’t easily be damaged by handlers. Internal adjustable compression allows you to pack in an extra outfit or two while lockable zippers keep your belongings safe from theft.


A Straightforward Day Pack For Anywhere Adventure Takes You

Osprey Arcane Large Day Pack (20 Liters)

This simple daypack sneaks clever features into a minimal design to make for a great piece of luggage whether you’re running errands, traveling or hitting the trails for a light hike. A J-zip front panel grants access to the lower reaches of the main compartment to prevent sifting through your belongings, and a padded laptop sleeve helps to protect your higher-end electronics. Its polyester shell (made from 10.5 plastic bottles) is also water-repellent, so your stuff stays dry no matter the weather.


A Featherlight Sleeping Pad For Sleeping Under The Stars

Therm-A-Rest ProLite Plus Sleeping Pad

Despite providing a 1.5-inch-thick sleeping surface to folks up to 6-feet tall, this Therm-A-Rest pad packs down to the size of a large water bottle and weighs less than 1.5 pounds. A self-inflating design makes for easy setup while diagonal-cut foam offers unexpected comfort for the pad’s pack-away size.


A Quick-Charge Power Bank To Bring The Grid With You

EcoFlow River 2 Pro Portable Power Station

This relatively lightweight power station charges in just 70 minutes, providing 768 watt hours (enough for 57 phone charges) from the tailgate to the campground to the trailhead. Levels can be monitored remotely through the EcoFlow app.


This Durable, ACA-Certified Travel Pack

MOST POPULAR

The North Face Recon Pack

This adaptable North Face pack is durable, comfortable and impeccably organized with a variety of compartments (including a laptop sleeve and hydration port with tube routing). It’s also easy on your back—the pack’s suspension system has been awarded with an American Chiropractic Association certification. This discount is currently available in six colorways.


Save 30% On This Popular Duffel

REI Big Haul 28 Recycled Duffel

This duffel is great for travel, trips to the gym and lugging around sports gear—and it fits in the overhead bin of most airplanes. It’s made of recycled material and has loops on the exterior to make it easy to connect to other gear.


REI Anniversary Sale: Our Footwear Picks

Vasque St. Elias Hiking Boots (Women's)

These sturdy hiking boots provide ample foot protection and waterproofing for rugged backcountry hikes. All-terrain midsoles and EVA cushioning make for a quick break-in period while an over-the-ankle height work to prevent ankle-rolls and slips.


A Low-Profile Shoe For Stylish Comfort On The Trails

Helly Hansen Jeroba Mountain Shoes (Men's)

These light-trail shoes pack quick-drying properties, cushioning support and high-grip outsoles into a sleek profile for sure-footed jaunts into the woods. A breathable mesh upper keeps your feet cool on warmer days on the trail, plus antimicrobial fabrics prevent unwanted odors for when the day is done.


Waterproof Boots With Foot Safety In Mind

Vasque Breeze Waterproof Hiking Boots (Men's)

While they cut a classic silhouette, these Vasque hiking boots get some modern upgrades with waterproof and breathable membranes made from recycled materials. Leather uppers provide ankle support on particularly rugged terrain, with plenty of toe room to cut down on chafing and stubs.


Our Pick For Lightweight Walking Shoes

On Cloud 5 Combo Shoes (Women's)

These shoes from On rank as Forbes Vetted’s best lightweight walking shoe for women thanks to its responsiveness across varied terrain, cushioning and firm insole. As deputy editor Kari Molvar writes, “If you’re looking for a lightweight, all-day walking shoe with a barely-there feel, the On Cloud 5 is about as perfect of a shoe you can find.”


A Comfortable Running Shoe

Hoka Arahi 6 (Men's)

Hoka has plenty of fans, and it’s not hard to see why: Its shoes are well-made, comfortable and long-lasting. The Arahi 6 is no different, with extra support minus superfluous weight. While 19% might not feel like steep savings, you’re unlikely to see these sneakers on sale for much lower anytime soon.


Our Favorite Men's Running Shoes Overall

Asics Gel Kayano 30 Sneakers (Men's)

We named the Asics Gel Kayano 30 the best men’s running shoe overall. The sneakers are breathable, cushioned and deliver excellent shock absorption. Our tester, Michael Holland, has ran 45 marathons across the globe and says, “They always get me to the finish line.”


REI Anniversary Sale: Our Accessory Picks

Four Tools, No Bulk

Gerber Armbar Slim Drive Multi-Tool

Whether you’re in the backcountry or the backyard, this small-but-mighty multi-tool offers a range of solutions to whatever curveballs life has in store. Tools include a cross bit, flat bit, plain edge blade and bottle opener, all within a compact design for a barely-there feel.


A Waterproof Speaker For Music Anywhere

JBL Xtreme 3 Portable Waterproof Speaker

With a durable over-the-shoulder strap and an IP67 waterproof rating, this powerful speaker can pump out the tunes from the beach to the pool to the middle of a rainstorm. Connect multiple JBL products with PartyBoost for surround sound listening wherever you please.


A Clear Cooler Bag For Easy Entry

IceMule Clear 15L Cooler

If your summer plans include outdoor events that require clear bags for entry, this discounted backpack cooler from IceMule is just the ticket. It provides 5 to 7 hours of ice retention for up to 12 of your favorite drinks with padded air-mesh shoulder straps, so you have less on your hands while you watch your favorite sporting event or performance.


Our Pick For The Best GPS Watch For Hiking

Garmin Instinct 2S GPS Watch

If you’re an avid hiker seeking a rugged GPS watch, we recommend the Garmin Instinct 2S. It’s been tested to military standards for durability, and its solar-charged battery keeps the clock ticking off-grid.


A Sleek, Design-Forward Water Bottle

Purist Vacuum Water Bottle (32 Ounces)

This water bottle has a stainless steel exterior and unbreakable glass interior to help prevent flavors from transferring to your beverages. The bottle should also keep drinks cool for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12. Just keep in mind that neither the bottle nor lid are dishwasher safe.


When Is The 2024 REI Anniversary Sale?

The REI Anniversary Sale typically takes place in the spring. This year, it started on May 17 and ended Monday, May 27.

How Long Is The REI Anniversary Sale?

The 2024 REI Anniversary Sale lasted 11 days and is technically over. Though it has ended, there are still some deals live on the retailer now. In general, you’re better off shopping at the beginning of the promotion to get the best selection of offers—many top-rated items have sold out at this point.

Can Everyone Shop The REI Anniversary Sale?

Yes, the REI Anniversary Sale was open to the general public. Though it’s now over, REI Co-op members can still take advantage of an additional 20% savings on one full-priced item as well as 20% on one REI Outlet item with code ANNIV24. If you’re not already a member, it could be worth signing up in order to get those exclusive offers—especially if you’ve got your eye on a big-ticket item.

Is REI Co-Op Membership Free?

No, an REI Co-op membership requires a one-time $30 fee. That said, it gets you a lifetime membership and access to perks like exclusive discounts and sales throughout the year, free shipping on most items and an annual 10% back all qualifying purchases. If you’re an outdoor enthusiast or looking to make at least one major purchase this year, a membership is worth considering.
