REI Co-op Magma 15 Sleeping Bag
At just 1 lb 12.2 oz for a regular, the Magma 15 is warmer than its weight suggests.

REI Co-op Merino Wool Liner Crew Socks
No frills here: Just a great pair of lightweight hiking socks. These merino numbers work well on their own in warmer temperatures, or under a thicker pair of sockes when it’s nippy out. And all that for less than $10. Buy REI Co-op Merino Wool Liner Crew Socks now for $9 (25% off)
REI Co-op Flash 45 Pack
“We’ve long been fans of the Flash for its balance between low weight, comfort, and affordability,” we wrote in our review of the Flash 45. This versatile weekend pack features a comfortable countoured hipbelt (our female testers singled it out for praise) and carried up to 35 pounds with ease.
