One of the best, and also worst, parts of this year is that due to social distancing, everyone became an outdoors person. We met each other across lawns or masked in backyards, and went camping or to remote cabins instead of taking big summer vacations. This year, REI is helping to encourage safe habits with its yearly Get Up Get Out sale, which expires on November 23. Moosejaw’s Anniversary Sale is also ongoing and expires November 22.
While tons of apparel and equipment for your newest winter hobby are on sale (snowshoeing, anyone?), you can also get 20 percent off on full-price items. REI members can use code GEARUP2020; on Moosejaw, use the word PARTYTIME. Maybe this is the year to start a new holiday tradition, like your own family Turkey Trot or hiking up and down a nearby mountain.

Camping and Travel Gear
Solo Stove Lite for $52 ($18 off): Product reviewer Parker Hall likes the much larger firepit version of this tiny stove. This adorable, affordable version is about 6 inches high and perfect for winter camping trips or distanced stoop hangs. This stove and others are also on sale at Solo Stove’s store.
Cotopaxi Fiesta Bundle for $105 ($35 off): Someday we’ll travel again. I like Cotopaxi’s super-light bags, which are made from postproduction nylon remnants. This bundle, which includes a daypack and a duffel, would be a useful gift for a recent college grad.
