Here are our favorite backpacking deals at REI’s Cyber Week sale.

Big Agnes Tiger Wall UL2
Originally $399.95, on sale for $299.89 (Save 25%)

This insanely lightweight two-person tent adds to Big Agnes’s repertoire of thru-hiker faves. It weighs less than three pounds, features two doors and vestibules, and is easy to set up. This is destined to become the most popular freestanding tent for thru-hikers.

Big Agnes Fly Creek HV UL 1
Originally $329.95, on sale for $247.39 (Save 25%)

A classic for ultralighters who still want the convenience of a semi-freestanding tent. This tent weighs two pounds and is a continued favorite year after year. Two-person version on sale here.

Osprey Atmos AG 50 Pack
Originally $240, on sale for $179.99 (Save 25%)

Perfect for hikers who value features and comfort but don’t need a 60-70 liter capacity. The bigger your pack, the more stuff you bring. It’s science. Bring a smaller pack.

Osprey Aura AG 50 Pack
Originally $240, on sale for $179.99 (Save 25%)

The women-specific version has narrower shoulder straps, fits comfortably around the hips, and is designed for narrower frames.

Big Agnes AXL Air
Originally $139.95, on sale for $104.89 (Save 25%)

Ultra padded, not too heavy, and won’t make you pass out from losing too much air trying to inflate it. We review this pad here. 

Jetboil MightyMo Stove
Originally $49.95, on sale for $29.89 (Save 40%)

JetBoil moves into the lightweight stove territory with this teensy offering. Works with most cookware and weighs just over three ounces. How cute.

Black Diamond Spot Headlamp
Originally $39.95, on sale for $29.89 (Save 25%)


A perennial fave. This headlamp was redesigned last year, eliminating the annoying swipe on the front. This updated version is way more intuitive. It’s easy to adjust and can shine up to 300 lumens at its brightest setting.

Sea to Summit X-Set 11 Cookset
Originally $64.95, on sale for $48.69 (Save 25%)

No more bulky cookware taking up room in your pack. This whole set is collapsible, and you can boil water with the aluminum-bottom pot, then fold the whole thing down thanks to the silicone walls. Lightweight and convenient.

REI Co-op Midweight Half-Zip
Originally $54.95, on sale for $32.89 (Save 40%)

Your basic base layer at a ridiculously good price. Men’s here.

REI Co-op Midweight Long Bottom
Originally $49.95, on sale for $29.89 (Save 40%)

Ditto on the bottoms. A good pair of base layer bottoms will make your life so much better at camp and during winter outings. Women’s here.

REI Co-op Essential Rain Jacket
Originally $69.95, on sale for $48.89 (Save 30%)

This jacket was already a steal, now even more so. Waterproof, breathable, with an adjustable hood and cuffs. You won’t find a better rain jacket for a better price. Read our full review here and find the women’s fit here.

REI Co-op Drypoint GTX Jacket
Originally $249, on sale for $148.99 (Save 40%)

Level up in rain gear with this GTX jacket from REI. Seam sealed, athletic cut, and breathable. Here’s our full review, and you can find the men’s here and plus sizes here.

The North Face ThermoBall Hoodie
Originally $220, on sale for $164.99 (Save 25%)

For adventures where moisture is a key concern, synthetic fill is the way to go. This jacket is relatively lightweight and packable, with the North Face’s proprietary quilting pattern. Men’s fit here.

ExOfficio Women’s Sport Mesh Bikini Brief
Originally $24, on sale for $16.79 (Save 30%)

To wear underwear or not? That’s totally up to you, but if you choose to wear undergarments on a long-distance hike, ExOfficio is the way to go. They stay as stink free as possible during long outings, and are chafe-free and quick dry.

ExOfficio Give-N-Go Sport Mesh Boxer Briefs
Originally $30, on sale for $20.99 (Save 30%)

Avoid the dreaded chafe with this six-inch boxer brief. Same deal with these… they stay less gross for longer, and will make your life a lot more pleasant for many miles.

Salomon X Ultra 3 Low GTX
Originally $150, on sale for $112.49 (Save 25%)

A solid middle ground for support vs. flexibility. Salomon’s quick-lace system is durable and convenient, and these require pretty much no break-in period. This was cited as a favorite among 2018 AT thru-hikers. Men’s here.

La Sportiva Lycan GTX
Originally $140, on sale for $111.99 (Save 20%)

A relative newcomer to the trail running scene, the Lycan provides lightweight support and cushioning against the rockiest trails while allowing for quick maneuverability. Women’s here.

Salomon Odyssey Pro
Originally $140, on sale for $104.99 (Save 25%)

Impact-reducing midsole will help stave off rock bruising, and the breathable upper helps sweaty feet stay dry, and also dries out quickly after stream crossings. Men’s here.

Salomon Speedcross 4
Originally $130, on sale for $97.49 (Save 25%)

Just a good old-fashioned quality trail runner featuring an aggressive lug, ideal for rugged trails.
