REI's End of Season Clearance Sale marks the end of warmer seasons and the start of cold temps and (hopefully) a snowy winter. The sale runs from October 11 through October 15 and it's the best time to stock up on deals from brands like Prana, Arc'teryx, Patagonia, the North Face, and many, many others. Here are the steals that Outside editors are drooling over. (The prices listed below reflect the additional 25 percent off, which is applied once the item is in your cart.)

Brooks Juno Sports Bra ($24; 63 percent off)
Outside has called the Juno one of the best sports bras for women with large cup sizes, thanks to its adjustable straps and clasps on the back band. Yet, unlike many full-support options, it still manages to look good, with a cutout on the back. And at $24, you really can't find a better deal.

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Xlite SV Sleeping Pad ($71; 63 percent off)
The NeoAir Xlite SV is one of the most popular backpacking sleeping pads and for good reason. It's ultralight, packable and comfortable, and the SpeedValve makes for fast and easy inflation and deflation.

Rumpl Puffy Blanket ($72; 44 percent off)
For my adventure blanket review in last years Winter Buyer's Guide I cuddled up in nearly 20 of the best blankets on the market. After all was said and done, the synthetic Rumpl was easily my favorite. It's comfortable, packable, and comes in a ton of cool colorways.
Manduka eKO SuperLite Travel Yoga Mat ($23; 45 percent off)
When I first used this yoga mat, I thought, "What the heck! I may as well be doing yoga directly on the floor, everything hurts." This, I learned very late in life, is what travel yoga mats are for. Though I take a big, cushy, more-mattress-than-mat to the studio because I am a baby, this light one is a great encouragement to do yoga in cool places like outdoors, on soft grass. And its deep plum hue obscures any dirt I pick up along the way.

Patagonia Atom Pack ($44; 44 percent off)
Small and simple, the Atom is just big enough to carry the essentials. I use mine to carry my gym clothes or water and tennis balls when dog walking. If you're a climber, it would make a pretty good crag pack too.
Patagonia R1 Pullover ($48; 63 percent off)
I've been wanting one of these ever since Anna Callaghan's big fleece test, which the R1 won. My closet is packed with full-zip and no-zip layers right now, and I miss having a versatile half-zip that I can wear everywhere.
