Summer is here, and though it might hit a little different this year, the great outdoors are still there, ready for you to explore. As any avid outdoor enthusiast knows, such adventures — whether it be hiking, camping, or an RV roadtrip — often call for smart packing (and smart clothes). After all, you’re not going to head out on your road trip with bulky suitcases on hand. Rather, you’ll likely roll up a handful of practical essentials, like cooling dresses and sweat-wicking shorts, and toss them in your easy-to-carry backpack. And thanks to Columbia Sportswear’s massive summer sale, you can scoop up all these innovative outdoor must-haves for way, way less.

Columbia Sportswear has been around for more than 80 years. Starting out in the hat manufacturing business in 1938, the label is now best known for churning out lifestyle gear that’s as innovative as ever. Ask anyone who’s been on a miles-long hike or days-long camping trip, and they’ll probably say they couldn’t have lasted without their Columbia.
