It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over
The Best Pieces of Outdoor Gear That Are Still Discounted
So you’re an outdoor purist; you took REI’s advice and instead of spending the Friday after Thanksgiving hustling through big box stores and scrolling lists of the best discounts available, you went for a hike or a ski or a run. You shunned consumerism’s darkest day to follow Henry David Thoreau’s example instead and go to the woods (or mountains or desert or ocean) to “suck out all the marrow of life.” But you lost your headlamp, your tent is kaput and you still need to pick up a holiday gift for that equally-adventurous relative. There’s no philosophical shame in taking advantage of deals after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, right?
If your doubts about the issue are abated, then head to Backcountry, where a large selection of noteworthy items is still on sale for as much as 90-percent off. (The majority of things are marked down by less than that but not insignificantly so.) This digital discount bin is deep, so we’ve gone ahead and selected our five favorite items that are worth considering.
