REI Members Save More, Coupons Available Here

REI is tipping its hat to members this month with a “Members Save More” sale.

Through October 16th, you get to pick your prize: 20% off one single item, 30% off an outlet item, or 50% off gear rental or services.

Pretty nice.

Here is the coupon code you are going to want to use while checking out: FALL4MEM

My personal preference during these types of sales is to try to take advantage of the 20% off a single item deal. By using it on a large ticket item you can save a decent amount – and let’s face it, don’t we always have a large ticket item we need (ok, maybe want)?

Here are some highlights from the sale.

Vibram FiveFingers KomodoSport

Cross-trainers that take the popular KSO and introduce a friction-reducing footbed to enhance comfort.

I’m half way through reading ‘Born to Run’, yeah I know I am late to the game here, but I am now flirting with the idea of trying minimalist footwear and Vibram Five Fingers lead the market.

I’ll have to get over how goofy they look, but with adjustable instep and heel straps, mesh panels for breathability, and 4mm Vibram outsoles featuring TC1 rubber traction pods… this sounds like it has everything I’d want in a minimalist pair of shoes.

$110. Members take 20% off →

REI Half Dome 2 Plus Tent

The extended size version of the popular Half Dome 2 tent. Want a little extra room? This tent is made just for you.

The REI Half Dome Tent has been getting heaps of praise since it was introduced. Gear of the Year awards from Outsider Magazine, Editor’s Choice Awards from Backpacker Magazine, etc etc. This is a newer, slightly roomier version of the classic.

At $199 it is hard to fathom a better tent for the price. →

Nano Puff Pullover


No sense denying it, cold weather is here!

I finally picked one of these up in anticipation of fall and winter outdoor fun, and I can confirm that the hype is legitimate.

Along with its absurd warmth to weight/packability ratio, one of things most often raved about is the Nano’s versatility – and for good reason. It can be used as an outer layer for spring and fall adventures, a camp jacket in the summer, and a mid layer in the winter. Seemingly, the perfect piece of outerwear.

$149.00!

Also available in full zip and hooded versions.

Not a member? If you want to get your hands on that coupon, it is pretty easy to become one, and comes with benefits beyond just this sale – like the yearly dividend, where you get refunded approximately 10% of eligible purchases. And it only costs $20 for a lifetime! I guarantee, if you do any amount of gear shopping online, you will make that $20 back in one season.
