Long days and short nights are coming to a close in the Northern Hemisphere as summer winds down, but those summer days aren’t over yet. There are still plenty of ways to get outdoors in the upcoming months, even as it cools down. Back-to-school sales are the perfect time to gear up for the fall, and now is the time to head over to REI for some good end-of-summer sales.

Sales on Summer Gear
For those of us who can’t let go of summer, there’s still plenty of time to get out on the lake or head to your favorite trails (and if you’re from New Jersey, the season of paying to get on the beach is almost over).
With 15% off gear like paddleboards and kayaks, it’s time to treat yourself. You can even save up to 25% on accessories for the water, like 20% off kayak paddles and 25% off life vests. If you’re planning a busy day full of adventure, pick up a dry bag to keep your gear in while you’re splashing around.
After a summer full of camping, some of your gear may need replacing. If your tent is ripped or you’re just looking for something a little bigger, the North Face 4-Person tent is 30% off, and it is super lightweight. If you’re a fan of snuggling, pick up this double sleeping bag (it’ll also help keep y’all warm if you decide to go cold-weather camping). It can even fit two full pillows in the hood.
Fall and Winter Gear
If you’ve been waiting for cooler weather to arrive, this is the gear you’ll want to pay attention to. Whether you’re looking to get a head start on some base layers or you’re looking for some new gear to hit the slopes, here’s your chance to get high-quality gear at low, low prices.
For instance, grab a new pair of ski goggles for 50% off from Dragon, and then get some new snow pants to keep you dry and warm. Make sure your snow boots are still in good condition, and if you have little ones running around, chances are they’ve outgrown their snow shoes or pants from last year, so now’s the time to replace them.
