40% Off MSR Hubba Hubba 2 Tent

Sale $329.99 (Reg. $549.99)

  • Weight: 3 lb 4 oz
  • Floor dimensions: 84 x 50 in

When you need a tent that can withstand the harshest thru-hiking conditions — think shoulder season in the high Sierra — the Hubba Hubba has you covered. It’s (figuratively) bombproof and spacious enough to keep you comfy even if you get snowed in for a day or two.

Lightest tent ever? No, but when you need something reliable and tent failure is not an option, you can’t do better than the Hubba Hubba.

25% Off Gregory Zulu 40 Internal Frame Pack | Through July 8

Sale $139.99 (Reg. $189.99)


  • Weight: 2.93 lb
  • Max carry weight: 35 lb

Saving weight doesn’t always mean missing out on fancy features. This sub-three-pound pack has all the bells and whistles of a traditional backpacking pack — like a hydration sleeve, adjustable torso, and ample, ventilated foam padding — but weighs dramatically less. It even comes with its own rain cover, which, when factored into the weight and price, makes this an even better deal.

The Zulu is 25 percent off through July 8 during the Public Lands 4th of July Weekend Sale.

25% Off Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL2 

Sale $299.99 (Reg. $399.99)

public lands 4th of july weekend sale: big agnes fly creek

  • Weight: 2 lb 4 oz (packed weight)
  • Floor dimensions: 86 x 52 x 42 in

The Fly Creek is one of the classic backpacking tents: lightweight yet durable, minimalist yet comfortable, breathable yet eminently stormworthy. It has served as a home away from home for many a thru-hiker on the Appalachian Trail and countless other long footpaths.

25% Off Sea to Summit Reactor Sleeping Bag Liner 

Sale $59.99 (Reg. $79.99)

public lands 4th of july weekend sale: sea to summit reactor

  • Weight: 10 oz
  • Material: Stretch-knit Thermolite Pro fabric

Can’t decide if you need a 10-degree sleeping bag or its 20-degree counterpart? Many of us have faced this dilemma: sleeping bags are a big investment, and buying separate ones for the wide range of temperatures we face in the backcountry isn’t always practical.

Enter the Sea to Summit Reactor, a soft fabric liner that can add a few degrees of extra warmth to your existing sleeping bag at a much more reasonable price and weight penalty than a whole new bag.

Bonuses: sleeping inside this machine-washable liner will protect your fancy sleeping bag from odors and damaging dirt and body oils, extending its lifespan.

48% Off Men’s Altra Lone Peak Trail Runners | Through July 8

Sale $77.97 (Reg. $149.99)

public lands 4th of july weekend sale: men's altra lone peak

  • Weight: 11 oz
  • Heel-toe drop: 0mm

Altra’s distinctive five-toe footprint, a nod to the brand’s commitment to minimalist footwear, has been a fixture in the mud and dirt of America’s long trails for many years. Although designed for trail runners, hikers love Lone Peaks because they’re lightweight, quick-drying, and ridiculously comfortable.

25% Off MSR PocketRocket Deluxe | Through July 4

Sale $63.74 (Reg. $84.99)

  • Weight: 2.9 oz
  • 1L boil time: 3.3 min

The PocketRocket Deluxe remains the gold standard in lightweight camp cookstoves. Even compared to the PocketRocket 2, the Deluxe version has more features like a pressure regulator for a more even flame, a wider, more windproof burner, and a piezoelectric igniter (so you don’t have to fuss with a lighter).

There’s nothing like a hot drink in the morning and a hot dinner at night to lift your spirits — and in extreme cold, it can even save your life — so don’t skimp in this department. Treat yourself to the best.

25% Off Therm-a-Rest NeoAir UberLight Sleeping Pad | Through July 4

Sale $169.99 (Reg. $229.99)

public lands 4th of july weekend sale: black therm-a-rest neoair uberlight

  • Weight: 8.8 oz (regular length)
  • R-value: 2.3

This summerweight pad is ridiculously light, yet it delivers a solid 2.5 inches of cushioning between you and the ground. No reason sleeping outside on the ground has to be uncomfortable, especially with the UberLight on sale for 25 percent off at Public Lands through July 4th.

25% Off Select Styles from prAna | Through July 5

Pants. You should probably wear some. prAna is the brand many people think of first when asked to name their favorite hiking bottoms, especially the durable yet stretchy Halle / Stretch Zion line (these are the women’s and men’s versions, respectively).

You can get these bad boys as pants or shorts in a variety of cuts and lengths, but no matter which style you choose, this line is known for its flattering fit, functional design, and breathable comfort.

These do-it-all strappy sandals are rugged enough to function as hiking sandals, comfy enough to slip into when you get to camp at the end of a long day, and cute/practical enough to wear around town. There’s a reason we granola girls are obsessed with Chacos. They’re a great investment, no matter what kind of outdoorswoman you are.
