The Gear Up Get Out sale is here

If you were hoping to buy REI’s Black Friday sale in a few weeks, you’ll have to rethink that plan. The outdoor goods retailer shuts down on Black Friday and instead encourages its shoppers (and employees) to take advantage of the great outdoors. But that doesn’t mean you won’t have the opportunity to save on your favorite gear. Starting today, REI is hosting their annual Gear Up Get Out sale, their last big sale of the year. This year, you’ll find up to 30% off tons of gear and 20% off a full-price item and 20% off a single REI Co-op item of your choice with the coded GEARUP22.

The problem? The sale is exclusive to REI members, but it’s only $30 for a lifetime membership. If you’re a nature lover, it’s a small price to pay for a lifetime of offers and discounts. Along with access to exclusive sales throughout the year, a membership earns you 10% annually on all qualifying purchases, free shipping and more. If you already have a subscription and are ready to shop, we’ve rounded up 12 of the best deals from the Gear Up Get Out sale below.
