What is Backcountry thinking? For the entire month of August, the giant retailer of outdoor gear has been hosting sale after sale on everything from camping gear to specific brands like The North Face. To finish the month off, Backcountry is celebrating Labor Day with its deepest discounts and its widest offering yet.
Included in this final round are some of the best and most innovative products released this year. For example: Patagonia’s Micro Puff jacket, the brand’s lightest synthetic insulation jacket ever. It was brand new last fall and hasn’t changed this year in anything but available colors. Then there’s Vasque’s Saga GTX hiking boot, which was among the best boots of the year, and Osprey’s Levity backpack, an ultralight trekking pack that gives the fast-and-light movement some mainstream limelight.
Essentials like technical tees, camping pillows and backcountry cookware are also available at discounted prices — actually, pretty much anything you can think of is marked down right now. If you’re in need of something specific or are looking for the latest gear breakthroughs, don’t wait for Backcountry to come to its senses and shut up shop.
