Alpacka Rafts: 15% Off Sitewide

An Alpacka raft

Packrafting mainstay Alpacka Raft’s boats are premium but pricey — it takes a lot of material tech and clever design to get an inflatable boat into a package svelte enough to carry on a multiday backpacking trip. That’s why you should jump on the brand’s 15% off sale (deals run through December 31).

If you’re new to packrafting or paddling in general, I recommend the Classic, a boat that’s comfortable and stable but with enough chops to handle some light whitewater. It comes in three deck configurations (open, whitewater, and whitewater/open hybrid) and only weighs 5.5 pounds (size medium). And if you’ve already got some whitewater street cred, Alpacka’s got plenty of edgier, more performance-oriented boats to choose from.

Peak Design Winter Weekend Sale: 10% Off Sitewide

Peak Design never has sales, and now it’s had two in the same year. Consider it a holiday miracle, and then head to Peak Design to shop. The camera and phone accessory brand is beloved by the GearJunkie editorial team for its clever design, clean aesthetic, and pure functionality.

The phone case ecosystem is useful for everyone from desk jockeys to mountain bikers to overlanders, while accessories like the camera clip and travel tripod bring massive utility to on-the-go photographers.

The 10% off sitewide sale covers everything in the brand’s catalog except for iPhone 15/Pixel 8 cases, non-charcoal mobile wallets, and V2 Camera Cubes. But act fast — the deals vanish on Dec 10.

Hyperlite Mountain Gear 12 Days of Deals: Up to 30% Off Select Products

Hyperlite mountain gear pods

Hyperlight Mountain Gear’s contribution to the holiday deals season is a 12-day sale, each offering discounts on a different product. On the day this story publishes (December 8) the sale du jour is 25% off HMG’s excellent Pods — waterproof, seam-sealed, ultralight, backpack-shaped clamshell designs that maximize space in any pack. They are my favorite backcountry organizational solution bar none, and it’s a victory to find them on sale.

Also coming up in the sale, are HMG packs across multiple disciplines (backpacking and ski-touring) and fanny packs. So whether you’re an HMG fanatic or just discovering the brand, you’ll find something worth looking at.

Nathan Sports: 30% Off Sitewide

The Nathan Sports Quickstart 2.0 4L made GearJunkie’s Best Hydration Packs of 2023 roundup thanks to its budget-friendly price and solid feature set. Our tester appreciated its breathability and clever reservoir tube hook that kept the nozzle out of the way while on the go. It’s a great choice for short-to-medium trail runs, and with Nathan’s 30% off sitewide sale, it’s even more affordable than usual. This deal runs through December 18.
