Still waffling on that new pair of climbing shoes? REI’s Anniversary Sale is continuing through May 27, so you still have time to take advantage of its great prices on outdoor gear. Whether you’ve been eyeing a big-ticket item like a paddleboard, need another knife, or want to replace a popped sleeping pad, it’s the best time of year to pick up outdoor equipment at a huge discount. Members can also get 20 percent off one full-price item through May 27 with the code ANNV1 9.
We don’t highlight individual store sales all that often, but we really like REI. Recreational Equipment Inc. was first established in 1938 and is one of the biggest customer cooperatives in the country. For many outdoor enthusiasts, REI is where they get their first piece of gear, along with expert advice and top-quality rental service. We also like their policies on sustainability and environmental stewardship. We’ve updated last week’s post with some of our favorite items that are still on sale.

We saw this solar cooker at Ce 2019 and it is wonderful, if perhaps a little ridiculous-looking. It employs parabolic reflectors to convert 80 percent of available sunlight into usable heat that can be used to roast, cook, steam, or pan-fry food in as little as 20 minutes. It’s versatile, durable, low-maintenance, and you don’t need to carry fuel.
