Any tips for good items to buy at REI?

What are good items to buy at REI? or what are hidden gems at REI? For example, I think the Benchmade Knives are good to buy there because they are cheaper than some stores, especially if you add the member discounts. Just curious. thanks.

I have an REI Radiant 19 sleeping bag that has become my three-season favorite. (I have other bags by Marmot and North Face to choose from.) I don't think they make the Radiant 19 anymore, still, I think the quality of the bag would lead me to consider the REI brand a respectable candidate for future sleeping bags.

I also have a multi-day backpack with the REI brand that seems pretty good. It's the Traverse 60. I seem to gravitate more towards my Osprey packs, but the REI does have some nice features and seems a respectable contender.

I have an REI Quarterdome 1 person tent that is perfect for me and my style of backpacking. The price/weight ratio seems good to me, it's very sturdy, easy to set up, and I've never had anything get wet in it. I've used it on 80F nights and zero F nights, rain, light snow, and some pretty decent wind. It's the regular version, I don't think they have it any more, just the SL version in 1 person capacity. 

 I also have an REI Magma 850 hoodie https://www.rei.com/product/157179/rei-co-op-magma-850-down-hoodie-20-mens that is awesome for light weight and warmth. I see it's on sale right now (in size small), and I'd say it's well worth the money at full price, so on sale it's even better!
