REI's Labor Day sale is one of the outdoor retailer's biggest sale events of the year, with over 10,000 pieces of gear marked down and ready to ship. There are a lot of deals to sort through, and we always recommend filtering by your favorite brands to see all of the available deals. But if you need help getting started, here are a few of our favorites.
Forsake Range High Boots - Men's | $79 | Normally $160
While this obviously isn't a single sale, it's worth browsing REI's outlet section for that one high-end item that's been on your wishlist. If it's in stock and in your size, you can get it for an extra 20% off with promo code LABORDAY20.
Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter Tech Cube Set | $28 | Normally $40
There are a lot of packing cubes out there, but Eagle Creek's Specter Tech cubes are among the most durable, with self-healing zippers, water-resistant fabric, and a lifetime warranty.
For the first few months of the pandemic, bikes were basically impossible to find in stock, let alone on sale. Ghost's electric bikes marry your pedaling power with an electric assist motor to help you explore further, and several models are 15% off at the brand's exclusive U.S. retailer.
Hyperice Hypervolt Massage Gun | $300 | Normally $350
Hyperice is one of the leaders in the burgeoning massage gun space, and you can score a rare $50 discount on its powerful Hypervolt, complete with four interchangeable massage heads.
Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter | $28 | Normally $37
Unlike the more well-known LifeStraw, Sawyer Squeeze's filter can be cleaned to increase its longevity, and you can use the included squeeze bags to filter dirty water into a drinking vessel, rather than lying face-down over a stream.
Marmot Precip Rain Jacket | Normally $150 | $90 for men's, $105 for women's
Marmot makes some of the best rain jackets out there, and I particularly love the Precip's stiff hood brim that keeps rain off your face and glasses. Since these are REI Outlet items, they're also eligible for the LABORDAY20 code.
MPOWERD Luci Outdoor 2.0 Inflatable Solar Lantern | $17 | Normally $25
The MPOWERD Luci is similar to the LUMINAID that we've covered here; a solar powered light that you inflate at night, and deflate to save space and recharge during the day.
You know Smartwool for its socks, and yes, those are on sale too. But you'll want to wear the brand's soft, temperature-regulating merino wool base layers all winter long.
