REI’s Anniversary sale is their biggest sale of the year, and as usual it’s full of bargains on cycling gear, clothing, packs, and more. There’s also a ton of great deals on camping and bikepacking equipment. No matter what rides or adventures you’re planning this summer, now’s the time to take advantage of the opportunity to save up to 30% (or more!) on all the gear you need.
Bike Tools & Kits
• We like that the fabric 11-in-1 Bike Multi-Tool uses color-coded tool bits, and even though it’s compact, the bits are long enough to reach those tight spots, too. Now just $22 (27% off).
• Perhaps one of the most clever ratching tools on the market, the fabric Chamber Ratchet Head Multi-Tool hides all of the bits inside it’s body, which then doubles as a handle for more leverage. Simply slide the bit to the other side to reverse the ratchet. On sale for $40 (25% off).
• If you only have one pump for every bike, the fabric Accubar MTB Tire Pressure Gauge lets you add a finer gauge for lower pressure applications like cyclocross, gravel, and mountain bikes without having to buy a whole new pump. Now just $40 (25% off).
• Also available in Black and White, the fabric Silicone Handlebar Tape is on sale for $30 (25% off) and offers a soft, grippy way to freshen up your bike for new adventures.
Car Camping & Bikepacking
• The NEMO Hornet Elite was voted Best Ultralight Backpacking Tent of 2021 by GearJunkie, making it an ideal choice for bikepacking. The two-person version weighs in at just over 2lbs, and the solo version at a mere 1lb 14oz. Reviewers loved that it was easy to carry, set up, and pack away. Originally priced at $450, snag it at $338 (25% off) through Memorial Day.
• There are camp tables, and then there’s the ALPS Mountaineering Dining Table. Its lightweight, durable aluminum frame is oversized, giving you room for all the food, snacks, drinks, and still leaving a little space to actually eat on. On sale for $97 (25% off).
• ENO JungleNest Hammock lightweight and packs small enough to bring bikepacking. It’s also breathable, and at 10ft long you can stretch out and get comfy. The attached netting will keep the pests away while you relax, too. Get it for $82 (25% off). Need to shed a few more grams? Upgrade the straps with ENO’s Helios Ultralight Hammock Suspension System. They’re rated to 300lbs and measure just over 8ft, but save a few ounces in your load out. On sale now for $26 (25% off).
• The BioLite FirePit+ is compatible with wood or charcoal, and has 51 air jets that minimize smoke. Use the USB-chargable battery bank to power up your devices while basking in its glow, or use the app to control the powered fan to adjust heat and flame output for customized warmth! Small enough to take car camping, it’s also a perfect home fire pit…and it’s a steal at $187 (25% off).
• If you like a bigger seat and want to be the envy of the camp, bring the NEMO Stargaze Recliner Luxury Chair. It’s like a rocking chair with the smooth swing of a hammock for the ultimate lounge chair, and it packs down easily. This is absolutely our favorite camp chair, and it’s rarely on sale…grab one now for $165 (25% off).

• Need both light and sound in a smaller package?

Even better, the built-in light can be used as a flashlight or a lantern!
