This week’s best outdoor gear deals highlight a puffy blanket, a fleece jacket, a fixed-blade knife, and more.
Patagonia Descensionist Snow Pants — Women’s: $189 (50% Off)
These three-layer hardshell pants from Patagonia are a high-quality steal. If you’re like me and don’t like paying upwards of $300 for a pair of snow pants, these are a great option. The pants are made with a 50-denier nylon-polyester fabric with a DWR finish.
They’re also embedded with a RECCO reflector, which can help search-and-rescue personnel find you or your partner in an avalanche. Other great features on the Descensionist pants include large zippered thigh pockets, vented pant legs, and internal gaiters. They are stylish yet durable for those of us who get in lots of powder days.
Rumpl Original Printed Puffy Blanket: $90 (30% Off)
If you don’t have a Rumpl puffy blanket, what can I say? You should get one. Are they necessary? No. But they’re ridiculously comfortable and useful to have on a camping trip.
Right now, multiple original printed styles from Rumpl are on sale. The “puffy” factor is made from synthetic insulation, and the blanket has a 20-denier ripstop nylon shell and water-repellent finish so you can use it anywhere you want outside.
Marmot Urban Hauler Pack: $28 (45% Off)
This top-loading bag is pretty unique and so very versatile. The straps are adjustable, so you can slide them to turn the bag from a backpack to a tote. This one weighs 11 ounces and can hold up to 14 L of gear: just enough to fit the essentials for commuting or a trip to your local gym.
The bag is nylon and has water bottle side pockets and a front zippered compartment. It was originally 26 percent off, but you can get an extra 25 percent off this sale item today.

Everyone needs socks. These crew socks from Darn Tough are darn comfortable, made with a blend of merino wool and nylon for moisture wicking and comfort all day long. The crew socks work great with both mid- and low-rise hiking boots, are durable, and will work for casual hikers, thru-hikers, and hardcore peakbaggers alike.
Outdoor Research’s three-layer Interstellar shell is an amazing waterproofing layer, and right now it’s also available an amazing price. The Interstellar is windproof, waterproof, and has necessary features like a helmet-compatible adjustable hood, zippered chest pocket, underarm panels, and key clip.

Depending on your color of preference and size, you can save up to 60 percent on this item.
KEEN Gypsum II Mid Boot — Women’s: $113 (25% Off)
Summer clearance sales are great, but sometimes the best time to buy a new set of boots is in the fall. And KEEN’s sale on the women’s Gypsum II hiking boot is a great example. The midrise boot is waterproof and contains KEEN.Dry, a breathable membrane that works to keep the elements out and sweat to a minimum.
The hiking boots have a multidirectional tread wit 4mm lugs and weigh in at 16.4 ounces. The style also offers a fair amount of heel and ankle support for those who prefer it or who hike in rougher terrain.
