The Inertia

REI Co-op Members save 20 percent on one full-price item and an extra 20 percent on one item from REI Outlet. The deal runs March 17 – 27, just use the coupon code “MEMBER23” at checkout. There are some exclusions.

If you’re on the outside looking in, you can become a member now and enjoy these deals immediately. It costs $30 for a lifetime membership and comes with other benefits, including discounts on shop services and rentals, and access to REI’s Re/Supply used gear program.

Yes, the 20 percent deal is good for one item. That’s a great opportunity to save more on a new tent, jacket, cooler, or other gear that won’t be discounted anytime soon.

Speaking of more savings, some of you may also have REI Member Rewards from last year’s purchases ready to cash in.

That’s where the Boulder 125 Base Layer comes in, a lightweight baselayer top and bottom made with breathable merino wool and a bit of nylon for increased stretch and durability.

YETI Cooler

YETI Roadie Wheeled Coolers

After customer demand, YETI finally made a wheeled cooler. The Roadie 60 holds 53 (12 oz.) cans with lots of ice (2:1 ratio). It can hold 62 pounds of ice only. To help move that weight is a telescoping handle and the aforementioned rough-terrain wheels. Your friend’s leverage will help with the rest. The cooler comes with a dry goods basket, too. Also available in a smaller size as the Roadie 48.
