If you had a few outdoors-minded things on your “to buy” list this fall and winter — whether shopping for yourself or for others — there’s no better time to do it. Because the brand famously does not participate in Black Friday sales, REI is holding its holiday sale now through Nov. 22, so there are plenty of great deals on top names like Solo Stove (coming in at about $260), Prana, Smartwool (all 25% off) and, of course, REI’s own steadfast in-house line. Also on offer? Smith snow helmets and goggles at 20% off as well as 25% off Outdoor Research winter and sporting accessories.
Some deals, like 40% off a super-cozy, super-flattering women’s down parka, are available only to members — but with thousands of items on sale, there are plenty of discounts to go around. We’ve rounded up 14 of the best picks from the REI sale you can shop now.

If you have Smith goggles you’ll be wearing with it, it has an integrated system to vent air so they don’t fog up. (If not, consider these sleekly futuristic Chromapop ones, also on sale starting at $109.93.)
