We’ve rounded up a few of our faves from the sale to get you started:


A lightweight insulated Patagonia puffer that’ll keep you warm on chilly nights and can also be layered under a thicker jacket come fall.


Promising review: «I love this jacket. I have had mine for over four years. It has been on two safaris (gets cold at night), many local trips, and is worn daily. I wash it in cold water and dry on low with tennis balls for about 10 minutes. I am about to buy a second one only because I want one in black. I would highly recommend this jacket!» —Michelle D.

Price: $138.99+ (originally $199; available in sizes XXS–XXL and 12 colors)


Or a cozy Patagonia fleece jacket to wear on early morning hikes or late-night binge-watching sessions on the couch.


Promising review: «Good quality jacket and it’s super soft. Got one for my mom, grandma, and girlfriend for Christmas. They all really like them.» —Justin

Price: $89.99+ (originally $129; available in sizes XS–XL and seven colors)


A pair of Chaco sandals so your feet feel as good on the first step as they do on the millionth step.


Promising review: «I have owned *a lot* of Chacos over the years, and this is hands down my favorite style. The thick straps are really soft and comfortable (no need to break them in — hooray!), and also just make my feet feel secure. Also, they do not feel clunky, which is icing on the cake. I get compliments on them often. Will definitely pick up another color in this style. Highly recommend!» —Liz L.

Price: $80.46+ (originally $114.95; available in sizes 6–11 and five colors)


A pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses for anyone who appreciates stylish *and* functional accessories. They have glare- and scratch-reducing coating so they’ll protect your eyeballs and look nice, even if you’re guilty of not being so gentle with your possessions.


Promising review: «Bought this for my daughter to replace her Ray-Ban Wayfarers. She loves to hike and run in them, and the rubber piece for the bridge of the nose helps hold them in place when sweating. Also, a great look!» —Hanh H.

Price: $119.20 (originally $149)


A pair of Fjällräven tights because flimsy leggings that won’t stay up just aren’t going to cut it anymore.


Promising review: «Love these tights! I can wear them anywhere and not worry about wearing out the butt or knees! Durable enough for climbing, but light enough for everyday wear, these are my go-to tights.» —TK

Price: $112.46 (originally $149.95; available in sizes XS–XL and three colors)


Or a pair of high-waisted Alo moto leggings if you love the stretch and breathability of leggings but don’t necessarily want people to know you’re wearing leggings.


Price: $82.56 (originally $117.95; available in sizes XS–L)


A Brixton felt hat with a large brim and tassels because you’ve always wanted to channel Lady Gaga on the cover of her album Joanne.


Price: $66.71 (originally $88.95; available in sizes XS–M)


A lightweight and portable packable chair that’ll never *not* come in handy. It weighs just two pounds and has rubber pads on the feet so it won’t slip on any terrain.


Promising review: «This chair is great! Light and packable. We take it just to watch the kids’ soccer or baseball games, as well as on extended backpacking trips. Honestly, this is just a great chair that does just what you need it to do…be a chair.» —Aaron Libby

Price: $74.95+ (originally $119.95; available in six colors)


An inflatable pillow to bring with you on your next camping trip — even if that means you’re pitching a tent in the backyard — and make the great outdoors just a little more luxurious.


Promising review: «A good pillow can really be a game changer when the weather takes a turn in the wrong direction on a hike. This pillow takes up a bit more space and weighs a bit more than some others that are out there, but it sure is comfortable. I had no problems with inflating it to different levels for comfortable side, back, or stomach sleeping. This is one luxury item that I won’t camp without; it even rivals my Tempurpedic pillow at home…» —Cory L.

Price: $42.46 (originally $49.95)


A 55L Osprey backpack so you don’t have a repeat of your last backpacking trip where you had to constantly throw things away because you insisted on packing too much.


Promising review: «The Osprey Ariel is the best carrying pack I’ve tried in 35+ years of backpacking. It makes a 30-pound load feel like half that weight! The frame sizing options and adjustability create a perfect fit with stable loads (no side to side pack sway). I especially like all the compression options. They allow me to shape the load. So far, I’ve used this for treadmill hill training with 30-pound weights. I am excited to take it for a real mountain adventure over the holidays.» —sha110574905

Price: $216.95 (originally $289.95; available in sizes XS–M and three colors)


A Marmot three-person tent for campers who are tired of being let down by their tents. This comes with a mesh canopy that adds some privacy as well as a waterproof fly and bathroom floor.


Promising review: «We’ve had this tent for almost three years now. It has survived a thunderstorm and fierce winds at White Sands. We stayed completely dry. It did well during some strong winds at Big Bend. This tent snuggly fits two adults, one German Shepherd, one sheprador, and one Pomeranian.» —Bee S.

Price: $224.21 (originally $298.95)


A pair of climbing shoes if your old pair has definitely seen better days.


Promising review: «My friend, who has never climbed before, tried these out and she loved them! She didn’t find them uncomfortable at all. She had an awesome time climbing for her first time and the shoes definitely helped. I always tell first-timers to just ‘trust the shoe’ and these didn’t let her down.» —Madison Kendrick

Price: $71.21 (originally $94.95; available in sizes 5–10.5 and four colors)


A pack of colored carabiners because the bright hues may be easier for you to spot when you’re moving around a rock.


Promising review: «Organization can make or break your route. Having your rack organized by color really makes a difference! The Neutrino rack pack is the affordable way to do that! Can’t go wrong here!» —Jessica Forsdick

Price: $29.96 (originally $39.95)


A pair of merino wool socks that’ll do it all: wick moisture, help regulate your foot’s temperature, and resist odor buildup.


Promising review: «I love these socks! The padding wraps around your foot and coddles it with all the love it has to give! The material is thinner on top making these socks breathable. I use these socks for hiking, running, and every day work. They provide comfort and and breathability.» —Chanae H.

Price: $13.99 (originally $18; available in sizes S–L and also in blue)


A pair of Adidas running shoes with high-density cushioning and a flexible design to add stability, comfort, and style.


Price: $90.97+ (originally $139.95; available in sizes 6–11 and three colors)


A stretchy skort with stylish ruched side ties so you can go about your day without worrying that one stiff breeze will reveal your underwear to the world. It’s also designed to block out some of the sun’s harmful rays.


Promising review: «This skort is perfect. I love the color, pockets, and side ties for added cuteness. Super comfy and cool when wearing it outside. Can dress it up for work at a ski resort or dress it down for hiking. Perfect for all occasions. Highly recommend. Wish it came in more colors.» —megangc1784088

Price: $26.57 (originally $39.98; available in sizes XS–XL and eight colors)


A personal flotation device for swimmers of any ability who want to feel more safe and secure in bodies of water.


Promising review: «The zipper closure makes this PFD extremely easy to put on and take off. The front pocket gives you easy access to extra sunscreen or chapstick. It was cut with a women’s specific silhouette and will fit snug but not squeeze uncomfortably. Picked this up for my wife and she loved it!» —Jacob Stenberg

Price: $104.93 (originally $139.95; available in sizes XS–XL and also in blue)


A pair of strappy Sorel sandals if you’re looking for the ultimate summer sandal. The best part: reviewers say they’re super comfy!


Promising review: «I purchased these sandals as a gift for my sister and she absolutely loves them. She has reported that they are very comfortable, cute/stylish, well designed, well manufactured, and an overall hit. The only complaint reported was an issue with rubbing the first few times they were worn. She tends to have issues with blisters when wearing new shoes so this is nothing new, but if your feet are also sensitive you may want to toss a few band aids into your purse so you are prepared should you have issues with rubbing too on your first few uses.» —Rachael Van Dolah

Price: $59.96 (originally $79.95; available in sizes 6–11 and six colors)


An organic honey because it’ll sweeten your tea as well as your store-bought honey *and* it has more antioxidants than light honey.


Promising review: «Killer price for some great tasting, organic honey! Unheard of for this price at your local market, I have seen. And it is so good! I really recommend this delicious honey. Just get it! :)» —Jenessa

Price: $4.87 (originally $6.49)


A pair of breathable knit shorts made of a soft cotton modal that’ll be your go-to shorts this summer.


Promising review: «These shorts are great; they’re literally the best. The waistband is comfortable and adjustable without being pinchy in any way. I love the length and the way that I can wear them in almost all situations. They are a great camp pull-on short, and they look really nice with nicer tops! Love ’em!» —Meghan Molony

Price: $37.46 (originally $49.95; available in sizes XS–XL and three colors)


A long-sleeve rash guard to protect your skin from rashes (duh!) and sun damage.


Promising review: «I just love this rash guard. It’s great for the beach, the ocean, rafting, or anything remotely water related. The design is epic. The fit is slightly loose (great for when you are more concerned with having fun in the sun than having to keep all your ‘parts’ tucked in), and the fabric is simply wonderful.» —Ashley Wheeler

Price: $30.58+ (originally $67.95; available in sizes XS–XL and eight colors).
