As we have mentioned in the past, the best time to find deals on cold-weather gear is when it’s hot AF outside and retailers are just trying to clear out warehouses. And yet, you can still sometimes score sweet discounts as the season is just getting started. Case in point: right now a bunch of awesome Built by Backcountry outerwear is on sale for as much as 50 percent off (some items even get an additional 30 percent once they’re in your cart).

And we’re not talking about suboptimal, previous-season product in limited sizes and goofy colors here, either. We got a hands-on with Backcountry’s house brand winter duds last season and came away thoroughly impressed. Even back then we thought the stuff was surprisingly affordable, so knocking 25 to 30 percent off turns the tempting deals into outright steals.

Need more proof? Consider the fact that you can get a top-quality Rustler Gore-Tex Stretch Jacket ($480 $360), a pair of Gore-Tex Snow Gloves ($100 $42) and Merino Baselayer Bottoms ($100 $35) for a little over $400 when a comparable kit might cost as much as $1,000. Those are just a few of our favorite items in the sale, but there are plenty more. Stock up now, and you won’t be ducking your head when the next round is on you at the après bar.
