It’s officially summertime and the outdoors are calling. To help get you geared up and ready to hit the trails, mountains, rivers, streams or wherever else you may trek, here are nine of my favorite summer adventure items from REI. All are deeply discounted right now as part of the REI 4th of July sales event.

Starting at just $6, you can snag this lightweight, high-capacity trail-ready REI water bottle. Or, for $24, grab my favorite super-soft, sweat-wicking REI Sahara T-shirt. It's just as well suited for strenuous wilderness activities as it is for lounging in the sun; it’s also my go-to tee for travel. Find these two deals and many more below.

I am, no joke, wearing this exact t-shirt right now. This deal is on the Blue Nights Heather color with plenty of sizes to choose from.
