Labor Day may be the unofficial end of summer — but it’s also the ideal time to stock up on hiking and travel gear for your next adventure (whether that means next summer or any time in between). That’s because REI’s Labor Day sale is in full swing ahead of the holiday weekend, and it runs through Sept. 5. Expect major discounts of up to 75 percent off, and in some cases, discounts are even larger, especially for REI Co-op members.

Look for a wide-ranging selection of outdoor gear including backpacks, sleeping bags, and tents. Also on sale are clothing and accessories for women, men, and kids, including hiking boots, activewear, jackets, hats, and more.

So get to building up your inventory for your next outdoor adventure with these REI Labor Day sale deals before the holiday closes the book on both the discounts — and the summer season.
