It ’tis official…
This year’s REI Anniversary Sale starts May 20th and runs through May 30th.
It is one of the most anticipated sales in the outdoor industry, and comes at the perfect time to gear up for 3 season adventures!
Along with general discounts of up to 30% on top-brand gear and clothing, and FREE shipping… this sale also features the gold standard of outdoor gear discounts, the 20% off coupon.
That member discount will be available on the 20th and is applied at checkout, if they use a “code” I will post here as soon as it is available.
I’ve got my eyes set on a new daypack. I’ve determined I want more of a suspension system for even my short trips, at least something with a hip belt. Both of my current daypacks lack them, and they fatigue my shoulders, which I find annoying.
A quick look at the REI website shows the following products are their current top sellers.
Garmin GPSMAP 60CSX
With expandable memory, this navigational workhorse guides you to your destination with a crisp, sunlight-readable color display.
SiRFstar III chipset, fast USB connectivity, precise barometric sensor, accuracy to 10 feet in North America, dedicated geocaching mode…
Vibram Five Fingers
Designed specifically for natural running, a near-barefoot experience and a custom, snug fit.
Someday, I will have to try these out – clearly, some folks find them to be an improvement over traditional shoes.
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.
