It’s September (who, what, how?!), and while we’re sad to see summer slip away, here’s one bright spot: the REI Labor Day Sale for 2021. The annual sale is one of the outdoor retailer’s biggest of the year, offering up to 50% off on everything you need for fall and cold-weather activities (as well as spring and summer of next year, if you like to shop early), from camping gear to activewear. If you like to save (and who doesn’t?!), and are planning to spend plenty of time outside this fall, you’ll want to check it out.
Now through Tuesday, September 7, you’ll find sizable discounts on hiking, fitness, backpacking, and general hanging-out essentials, including hiking boots, backpacks, running shorts, sports bras, LifeStraws, water bottles, Bluetooth speakers, camping tents, camp chairs, and so much more. In addition to REI’s in-house brand REI Co-Op, there are price drops from serious outdoor retailers like Under Armour, Brooks, Chaco, Merrell, The North Face, and Hydro Flask. Phew!
Because the REI Labor Day Sale is so extensive (with inventory running out on popular items and sizes), we’ve highlighted 19 of the best deals from the sale below. We’re also tracking all of the best Labor Day sales (including clothing and mattresses), so be sure to follow those stories as well—and have an awesome long weekend.
