Best REI Water Bottle Deals

Whether you’re an avid hiker or a holiday weekend camper, you probably know not to forget water when you hit that dusty trail. Stocking up on precious H20 doesn’t mean you need to bring a 24-pack of your favorite bottled water, though, nor does it mean you need to break the bank on a massive cooler. Ensure cool sips all day long with Kleen Kanteen’s 64-ounce water bottle, which is made with 90% post-consumer recycled (and BPA-free) stainless steel. It’s got a wide mouth, so you can fill it up with ice, and a loop cap, so you can attach it to a carabiner or just carry it easier. Oh, and it’s 25% off right now.
