It’s August, and despite the slow approach of summer’s end (when the heck did that happen), it’s a great time to go camping and an even better time to upgrade your gear. Why? Because between Backcountry and REI, there’s a warehouse’s worth of discounts on pretty much every type of outdoor product you can think of. Brand new sleeping bags, headlamps, fleeces and more from all of our favorite brands are marked down significantly, just in time for cool weather camping. Below, we’ve selected ten awesome items that we highly recommend.
