Whether you're new to REI or are a regular shopper, it's important to know that most sales that the brand hosts are for members only (womp). The outdoor gear behemoth always carries special deals, but once in a while, the retailer opens its door to non-members with its REI's Non-Member Sale. Which, spoiler alert, is happening now! Everything from outdoor gear (think: goggles, snowboards, gloves, and more) to podiatrist-approved kicks are up for grabs. So if you've been needing a new pair of running shoes or camping essentials to hit the trails, there's no better time to invest than now.

REI is slashing prices off of road running shoes like Altra's Torin 6 Road Running Shoes (now $105) and the Hoka Clifton 8s (now $113)—both of which are beloved by podiatrists and have been approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) for promoting good foot health. These kicks are lightweight, breathable, and have a cushioned midsole so that you can hit the trails and train in comfort. And like we said, outdoor gear is also on the sale docket. For example, take advantage of discounts on outdoorsy tools like this Gregory Juxt 34 Pack (now $167, 30 percent off its original price).

While most sales have an expiration date, REI's non-member sale will continue to stay up until supplies last. But don't snooze on these deals; items are selling out fast! Continue down to find the best of REI's Non-Member Sale.
