Please note: If you buy through the links in this article, we may earn a small share of the profits.

The only carefree days of summer happen between June 21st (the first official day of the season) and July 4th. After Independence Day it’s a mad dash to pack in all your camping, cabin and three-day weekend excursions. 

To help, REI has started its extensive 4th of July sale a week and a half ahead of time so you can grab all the gear you still need to take said trips. They just added discounts up to 40% off on your favorite brands like Patagonia and Hydro Flask, but they’ve also included their clearance deals which slash prices as much as 80% off.

We’ve rounded up our favorite deals below, including some fresh discounts on items we included in our summer gear guide.
