Available in nearly every size and in three colors, this sale allows you to snag a high-end shoe at a great price. The Torin 3.5 is built for road running, with a nice balanced cushion, a women’s-specific build, and outsole technology that maps the pressure points of your feet.
Patagonia Better Sweater 1/4 Zip — Women’s: $60 (39% Off)
This classic is 33 percent off. And it’s on sale in a ton of sizes and colors. This is a workhorse of a “sweater,” and really, I think of it more as a classy sweatshirt. It’s nice enough to keep at your desk for chilly AC moments and tough enough to be a first layer on a fall day hike.
Black Diamond Beta Light 2-Person Shelter: $165 (25% Off)
If you haven’t carried around a floorless tipi-type shelter in the woods, you’ll be impressed with the amount of weight you can cut. This is a nice entry-level price on a two-person shelter than can set up with your trekking poles. If you want to get more technical, you can add accessories. But for us minimal types, this is a great option.
Backcountry x BUFF UV BUFF: $18 (30% Off)
This fun BUFF is your buddy for keeping that red neck at bay. With built-in UV protection, odor-resistant fabric, and moisture-wicking components, this is your bff for keeping cool while simultaneously keeping burns at bay. Available in three patterns.
Gregory Sucia 28L Pack: $50 (50% Off)
Need a nice, affordable day pack? Well, Gregory’s got it covered with this little number. The perfect size for a day pack at 28 L, it also works as a gym pack, an overnight bag, or even for shucking the groceries from the store to your casa. It’s got a stretch pocket for keeping wet and dirty gear separate from your clean stuff, and a soft accessory pocket so your shades stay safe. All good things, and only $50. Not too shabby.
Marmot Big Rock Chalk Bag: $19 (51% Off)
This is a solid price snag on a nice chalk bag. It’s durable, with 100-denier mini ripstop nylon and a fleece interior. The stiff sides allow for easy access, and it’s got a zippered side pocket for stashing your climbing essentials.
Smartwool Secret Sleuth No-Show Socks — Women’s: $9 (32% Off)
I’m a no-show sock fanatic. I’ve rocked these Smartwools, and they do what the brand claims. They do it so well, in fact, that people will ask you where your socks are. If you’ve never rocked this type of sock, I’ll tell ya that no-shows save both your shoes and your feet while also preventing weird tan lines and unnecessary fabric bulk in summer months.
Zero Tolerance Hinderer 0566CF Assisted-Opening Knife ZT: $140 (39% Off)
We highlight Rick Hinderer’s knife designs fairly often here at GearJunkie. Why? Because they’re great. And what’s even greater is finding them on sale. The Hinderer is a popular model, with burly CPM-S35VN steel and a compact build for everyday carry capabilities.
