With every spring comes the REI Co-op Member Moment Sale, but how best to use your 20% off coupons when there is an overwhelming amount of gear to choose from? That’s why we’ve created the Lightweight Hikers Guide to the REI Member Moment Sale. By meticulously scanning through all of REI’s online hiking gear listings, we have identified the best lightweight and ultralight styles in their assortment right now that can members can purchase at less than full price, either with coupons, or on sale.

Half Dome Tents Are 50% Off

The best and most important deal of the entire sale is that the Half Dome SL 2+ Tent is 50% off. This is one of the most popular backpacking tents of all time, & likely the lowest you’ll see it marked down all year. Half Dome SL 2+ is our favorite camping-backpacking crossover tent, & one of the best value tents on the market. We highly recommend getting one before March 27.
