I scoffed at the “biggest sale of the year” when I first heard about it. 30% off? Bah! But there are a few decent deals to be had.


REI Outlet

The Sahara Tech T is particularly tasty at $14.99. I seriously have like 10 of them and wear one pretty much every day. They are much softer than your average polyester, with all the performance benefits. The Gerber Gator axes are also on sale if you happen to need a nice little axe.

Other good stuff that rarely goes on sale and will likely not come up on SAC any time soon:

Garcia Bear Canister – $49.99

REI Ti Ware Nonstick Titanium Cookset – $79.99 – the rest of their Ti Ware is on sale as well

SteriPEN Adventurer Water Purifer with Solar Charging Case – $94.99

MSR Miniworks EX Filter – $59.99

REI Half Dome 2 HC Tent – $109.99
