    And to make it even better, the sale runs until August 31st β€” but items are selling fast, so jump on the hot deals stat!

    Here are just some of our favorite things currently on sale:

    1. 50% off a Hydro Flask 32-oz tumbler, because your ice-cold drinks deserve to stay that way, even on the hottest days. How cold? ICE COLD.


    Promising review: "I love these tumblers, very great investment. I hate how ice doesn't last using regular cups. Plus it dilutes the drink. Now after using my tumbler, the ice lasts me almost all day with the drink staying fresh. The lid has an amazing seal. I do like 32 oz., it is a decent size." β€”amanda cloward

    Price: $19.99 (originally $39.95; available in two colors on sale)

    2. Up to 50% off The North Face Thermoball insulated vests that'll add an extra layer of warmth on chillier summer nights. Also, fall β€” the season of layers β€” is approaching...just saying!


    Promising review: "I bought this vest a few months ago anticipating the colder weather. It fits very well with a sweater or sweatshirt underneath. I wear a large in just about every shirt/sweatshirt I wear, and the large fits perfectly. It's nice and warm as well β€” I wear it every day at the ice rink and it keeps me nice and toasty. On the coldest windiest days, this vest has been my go to. It's super versatile and can be worn just about everywhere (which I do). I couldn't ask for a better product!" β€”Cade A.

    Price: $74.99+ (originally $148.95; available in sizes S-XXL and eight colors)

    3. 25% off a Patagonia duffel β€” aka the only bag you need for your trips. It's not too small, and the backpack-style straps make it incredibly easy to travel with.


    Promising review: "Out of four big duffels I own, this one is my go-to for everything. The hideaway backpack straps make it easy to haul, and it has just enough smaller pockets to keep track of loose items. The main compartment has plenty of space, and I've never had any issues with the zippers. I've had it for almost a year now and it has held up to all the abuse I can give it. Besides being a little dirty, it looks almost new. I don't think it's technically waterproof but I use it as if it is (short of totally submerging it) because it's so effective at keeping things dry. You won't be disappointed by this bag!" β€”Emma L.

    Price: $111.99 (originally $149)

    4. 50% off a lightweight Backcountry rain jacket with underarm vents to keep the heat out, and a hood for extra protection from the wind.


    Promising review: "This was my favorite gear purchase of 2018!!!! I was really excited to try a piece of Backcountry gear and I was not disappointed. Withstood a rainy, windy, cold week in Iceland and has been my go-to jacket ever since!" β€”Caitlin L.

    Price: $64.98 (originally $129.95; available in sizes XS-XL)

    5. 50% off an ALPS two-person tent featuring half-mesh tent walls for the ultimate ventilation.


    Promising review: "After putting this tent together and going inside to set the bedding up, I honestly didn't think it would last. I thought it would tear and thought it might be dewy in the mornings like other tents I've had in the past. Well during this camping trip, we ended up having a rain and wind storm. This tent did not tear, shred or leak! It kept us and our things dry (unlike our friends in their tents, lol). It was so awesome to wake up and not have it dewy. I'm telling you, this tent rocks!! Can't wait to use it again!" β€”Kellee Miller

    Price: $79.99 (originally $159.95)

    6. 30% off Patagonia Baggies Board Shorts that'll keep up with all your outdoor adventures from hiking up a mountain to your daily runs.


    Promising review: "These are my go to for hiking, class, hanging out, climbing, and even sleeping. They are super durable and comfortable with big pockets and a loose fit with room for my soccer quads. Buy all of them in every color." β€”Cassandra Pankey

    Price: $38.50 (originally $55; available in sizes XS-XL and 11 colors/prints)

    7. 36% off a Kavu Rope Bag for your everyday essentials. It's cute, compact, and deserves to go with you everywhere you go.


    Promising review: "The KAVU Rope Bag has so many uses. It's a durable day pack you can use on the trail or around town, and the perfect travel companion. It's functional enough for daily use and stylish enough to make a statement. Plus, there are so many sporty patterns to choose from. It also holds more than you'd expect considering its slim, snug-fitting design." β€”Keith Reis

    Price: $31.99 (originally $49.95)

    8. 28% off Beyond Yoga midi high-waisted leggings with quick-drying, and four-way stretch fabric so you're The Most Comfortable during your next class.


    Promising review: "Literally the softest most comfy yoga pants I’ve ever worn. Seriously. I call them my bunny fur pants, not because they are fuzzy, but because they are so soft!!! They run true to size and the midi length is cute to emphasize the ankle. They probably run close to full length if you’re shorter than 5’6. Do yourself a favor and buy these pants." β€”Jared G

    Price: $69.98 (originally $97; available in sizes XS-XXL and 9 colors)

    9. 25% off a GSI Outdoors Bugaboo Camper Cookset that provides everything you need to make a killer meal on the trail, and then conveniently packs down to fit in the largest pot.


    Cooking set includes: four plates, four mugs with insulating sleeves and sip tops, and four nesting bowls that all fit into a two-liter pot and three-liter pot with strainer lids.

    Promising review: "I love this cook set. I went from throwing all of my camp cookware in a bulky crate that took up half of my car. This set has more cooking tools than my old set up and fits into a small convenient package. I've even found extra room inside to fit o few other items like utensils." β€”Paul Quigley

    Price: $82.46 (originally $109.95)

    10. 54% off a Patagonia beanie, because cold weather will be here before ya know it, and now you'll be prepared.


    Price: $17.93 (originally $39)

    11. 55% off a Marmot backpack with a separate laptop pocket (that can double as a hydration sleeve!) and fleece-lined top pocket for sunglasses so all your essentials are protected.


    Laptop pocket can fit most 15-inch laptops.

    Promising review: "I'm impressed with the quality and detail in this pack. I was looking for something small and compact for everyday, but with good organization and comfortable carry. The main laptop compartment keeps my computer protected, and weight close to my back, and there's enough room in the middle compartment for a layer, gym clothes or lunch, with good organization for all of the little things. The most front top pocket is a convenient fleece pocket for a phone. I can fit a pair of flops or sandals in the front mesh pocket, and the water bottle pockets are ultra spacious. Definitely a solid option for commuting to and from with minimal gear." β€”Emma

    Price: $44.99 (originally $98.95)

    12. 40% off a Sunnylife towel featuring a bold, vibrant print, oversized shape, and super absorbent cotton fabric β€” basically all the things you could ever want out of an A+ beach towel.


    Promising review: "I got this about a year ago, in one of the vibrant funky patterns. It makes me smile just looking at it. It's my summer/vacation/sunshine towel. It's absorbent, ample in size, and has held up nicely. LOVE it." β€”Amy C.

    Price: $29.99 (originally $49.95)

    13. 40% off a The North Face pullover hoodie you should probably just wear all fall long. Move over, basic sweaters.


    Promising review: "I've really wanted a North Face hoodie for a long time now, and I'm very happy that I chose this one. It is very comfortable, lightweight β€” yet cozy, and isn't tight the way some fitted items are. Definitely satisfied." β€”India B.

    Price: $29.99 (originally $49.95; available on sale in select sizes XS-XXL and 14 colors)

    14. 36% off RVCA swim trunks made with a quick-drying and stretchy material so you can run, swim, and sweat β€” and then dry off super quickly.


    Promising review: "Being a super sweaty dude the material is great. It stretches with you and the pocket on the side is good for heading inland to hold phone or wallet." β€”BrianSmuda

    Price: $31.99 (originally $50; available in sizes 29-38)

    15. 44% off a Therm-a-Rest sleeping pad you may just end up trading your actual bed for.


    Price: $99.98 (originally $179.95)

    16. 30% off a Patagonia Houdini Jacket guaranteed to keep cold, windy air and rain from getting inside, so can keep exploring outside.


    Promising review: "This is the perfect little jacket for any windy occasion! I originally bought it for running and hiking but I have used it for so much more. It is nice when you are by a lake and it gets windy, or just walking around town. This little jacket does great to fend off wind and keep you feeling warmer no matter what you are doing. It is also a nice bonus that it packs up so small! The jacket fit me great and true to size. I got my regular size and it has room to layer under it. The material is very thin but it performs well." β€”Sarah V

    Price: $69.30 (originally $99)

    17. And 40% off an ALPS folding chair, because what could possibly top camping *and* lounging? Spoiler: Nothing. Nothing at all.


    Promising review: "I've put it through the wringer. This is a great chair. I have had a number of mesh chairs in my time and the features on this one really make it great. The cooler in the side of the armrest is a little kitschy, but it does come in handy when you want throw your headlamp or buff in it for the fireside sit later on. The slight recline makes it pretty comfortable and the mesh means your chair won't be soaking wet in the morning from dew. This has come with me on multiple sandy trips. It rinses clean every time. Would definitely buy this chair again." β€”Ausley G.

    Price: $32.99 (originally $54.95; also available in navy)
