REI’s stores may be temporarily closed because of the COVID-19 outbreak, but you can still find plenty of great deals online with the REI Co-op Sale.

In these trying times, it’s important to maintain some semblance of a normal, healthy lifestyle. Although we’re experiencing unprecedented shutdowns and restrictions around the country and world, there are still windows to opt outside and enjoy the outdoors where it’s safe and advisable to do so.

Whether you’re squeezing in a close-to-home hike, camping in remote areas or stocking up for adventures later this year, REI’s Co-op Sale is a great place to get your gear in order. Starting today, March 20, through April 6, you’ll find thousands of deals on outdoor gear, apparel and more.

From now until March 27, you’ll also receive free standard shipping on any order, no matter how much you spend.

Even better, if you’re an REI member, you can get an extra 20% off one full-price item and 20% off one REI Outlet item with code MEMPERKS2020. If you haven’t checked your REI dividend balance yet, here’s where to start.

There’s plenty to shop now, but check back on March 27 for even more deals.

Below, you’ll find 21 of our favorite deals on outdoor gear and apparel. To see more, check out the entire sale here.
