All that time spent holding off on buying the new tent or Teva slippers has paid off: REI's yearly anniversary sale is finally here.

From May 20–30, outdoorsy locals flock to our crunchiest hometown retail giant for deals on everything Seattle fashion. You know—puffer jackets, fleece pullovers, that sort of thing. It's kind of a big deal. Speaking of big deals, here are some of our favorites.

Cotopaxi Abrazo Half-Zip Fleece Jacket

$83 $110

We are eternally grateful to Cotopaxi for bringing a much-needed dose of color into Seattle's earth-tone closets. This pretty, everyday fleece is just the beginning: REI knocked 25 percent off every product from the Utah-based brand.

REI Co-op Siesta Hooded 25 Sleeping Bag Just for Members

$77 $129

Image: REI

A 66-inch shoulder and hip girth and an option for a 78-inch length means this sleeping bag works great for bigger campers—just check out the reviews, which list customers' height and weight for easy comparison to your own. Recommended for casual car campers, not serious backpackers—this is a bulky bag, and won't stand up to super-cold overnight temperatures—but you can't beat the price.

REI Co-op Flexlite Camp Chair Just for Members

$56 $70

This lightweight REI staple can tag along on a backpacking trip, but it really shines in the trunk of your car—little enough to be mostly forgotten until you need it, like at the park or on a low-key camping trip.

Everyone who owns these shoes cannot stop talking about them. They're warm, rubber-soled, made from recycled materials, and fashionable enough by Seattle standards to wear on a quick PCC or coffee run. Finally, a way to wear your Tevas all year long. (Also available in men's sizes.)

REI Co-op Trail Hut 2 Tent with Footprint

$140 $199

The North Face Sierra Down Corduroy Parka

$175 $350

Image: REI

Who said Seattle's puffy coat uniform couldn't be fashionable? Corduroy makes this down-packed North Face version—dare we say it?—almost dressy, at least here in the Upper Left. And the discount is unreal.
