Midsummer is turning out to be a great time to score great deals on outdoor gear. Last week, we filled you in on The North Face’s 40-percent-off sale. Well this week, Backcountry is expanding that offering with its own sale on the California company’s outdoor offerings — now the selection includes tents and sleeping bags in addition to a full range of apparel.

One standout among the items that are currently discounted is the Ventrix Hoodie, which is marked down from $280 to $168. It’s one of our favorite synthetic insulating jackets available, and one of the most innovative jackets The North Face has ever made. We perused through the entire sale selection on both sites and picked out what we believe are the five best deals available — check them out below.

Denali 2 Fleece Jacket

The Denali 2 is one of The North Face’s most popular fleeces — it’s a dependable option for casual everyday use and nights in the backcountry too.

Ventrix Hoodie

Ventrix was released last fall and has been a big success so far, so much so that the North Face is expanding the line for the coming winter season. Don’t expect to find a deal on the jacket until long after the temperatures drop.

Base Camp Duffel 71-Liter

The North Face’s flagship expedition duffel has been tested in the most remote places in the world, but it makes an awesome bag for travel that doesn’t involve accommodations above 20,000 feet.

Cat’s Meow Sleeping Bag 20 Degree

Also a best-seller for the brand, the Cat’s Meow is a fully-adequate bag filled with synthetic insulation. Even at full price, it’s very affordable for its quality, but that’s even truer now.

Talus 2 Tent

The Talus is a mid-weight three-season tent that’s fully seam-taped and has a vestibule on either side.
