This week’s best outdoor gear deals highlight a knit hiking boot, summer rooftop tent, Patagonia fleece, and more.
Salomon Fast Wing Aero Jacket — Men’s: $72 (50% Off)
Salomon makes great gear, and this wind layer is no exception. The Aero jacket is windproof, packs down tiny, and has reflective threads so you can be seen no matter where you run. The hip-length jacket weighs just 3.9 ounces, has elastic on the cuffs and hood, and also has a chest pocket.
This is a good choice for cool-weather runners or others who want an ultralight layer that blocks wind.
We all love Hydro Flask — mugs, tumblers, water bottles, or whatever your go-to may be. Now, Hydro Flask’s 22- and 32-ounce tumblers are on sale.
The BPA-free stainless steel is durable and will last through countless road trips, camping sessions, or wherever you adventure. The double-wall vacuum insulation will also keep your drink of choice hot (or cold) for hours on end.
We love that both sizes are on sale, although the color options are limited.
iKamper Airflow Summer Tent: $245 (50% Off)
iKamper has been a name in the pop-up tent world for a while now, although most people know iKamper for the Skycamp tent. Well, this mesh summer tent in the brand’s lineup is awesome as well — perfect for summer and fall — and can sleep up to four people.
If you already own an iKamper, you can swap out the interior fabric to this summer tent, a combination of mosquito-proof mesh and a rainfly. It’s compatible with the original Skycamp 1.0 and 2.0 models.
Fjallraven Kiruna Pack: $60 (40% Off)
Fjallraven’s Kiruna is probably the most minimal design I’ve seen in a pack, yet it gets great reviews. The compact 15L pack is made of recycled polyester and a durable waxed fabric.
And just because it’s simple on the outside doesn’t mean it’s lacking — the Kiruna has an interior laptop sleeve, zippered organizer pockets, internal frame, padded back panel, and a hidden exterior pocket.
We like it for dayhikes, commuting, or traveling. Plus, it comes in an array of fun, bold colors.
Patagonia makes some pretty cozy fleeces, and the snazzy quarter-zip fleece happens to be on sale. Made of 100-percent polyester fleece with a sweater-knit face, the pullover sports flat-seam construction, a zippered chest pocket, and a collar.
No matter where you live or adventure, this fleece will make it through. Wear it to the office, camping, hiking, or on a night out with friends.
Salomon classifies this as a hiking shoe, but it also works for running on rugged trails. The wet-traction sole and treads make gripping on rocky or uneven terrain a breeze, and the 8mm drop and thicker midsole provide just the right combo of comfort and stability.
The shoe also has a quick-lace system and lace pocket so you can get your shoes on faster. The Salomon XA Elevate is a favorite in the ultra community and an overall great shoe, especially now that it’s on sale.
Chrome Helix Handlebar Bag: $45 (25% Off)
Biking to work is great, but sometimes you need a place to stash a wallet, camera, or bike pump. Enter Chrome’s handlebar bag: the 9-inch-wide bag can be used as a handlebar bag or as a cross-body sling with the handy hideaway strap.
The bag is tough as nails with its 1,050-denier nylon construction, waterproof main zipper, and 450-denier TPE tarp lining. It’s really awesome for bike commuting or general travel, and it weighs less than a pound.
These hikers from Merrell have an engineered knit upper for comfort and stretch, and TPU overlays for stability.
The sock-like tongue is a great aspect, especially if you hike on a lot of loose dirt, sand, or gravel. The outsole is a Vibram rubber compound good enough to grip on steeper downhill terrain. And it wouldn’t be a hiking shoe without a sturdy rubber toe cap.
If you find it hard to find the right fit with leather-upper hiking shoes, maybe try these out instead. The Chameleon 7 model comes in two different color schemes for women and one for men.
Timbuk2 Messenger Bag: From $63 (Up to 52% Off)
I toggle a lot between backpacks and messenger bags in my daily travels, and this bag demonstrates all the reasons why. The Timbuk2 Messenger Bag is fully adjustable with a shoulder strap and has everything else you could need.
There’s a front pocket underneath the exterior flap, giving you quick access to keys or a wallet. The inside compartment features dual stretch pockets for holding water bottles, notebooks, or a packable jacket as well as a laptop or tablet sleeve.
Originally $144, this is a great deal on a commuter bag. (Sizes XS, S, M, and L are all on sale.)
