This week’s outdoor gear deals highlight a Big Agnes puffy jacket, an Arc’teryx bag, a free Hydro Flask, and more.
Let’s face it: If you spend any time in the outdoors outside of summer, you’ll need some long underwear. Or at least a solid, breathable base layer.
This awesome crewneck long-sleeve has flat-locked seams and is made of 100 percent cozy, ventilating merino wool. Plus, the slim fit and brighter colors make it stylish enough to wear outside of the tent.
I love La Sportiva’s shoes. My feet are on the narrower side, but they always fit surprisingly well. These Boulder X approach shoes are super grippy, adding safety and confidence to scurry up any crag. Plus, the laces reach all the way to the toes for better adjustment and fit.
The Boulder X shoes are a perfect combination of protection and traction, while the 2mm EVA layer above the insole offers plenty of cushion.
Outdoor Research Passage Shirt — Women’s: $60 (29% Off)
Workday style, meet outdoor professional. Outdoor Research’s buttondowns are always stylish, but this one has an especially nice fit, with enough flexibility for range of motion — whether typing on a computer or loading up gear for a hike.
The Passage long-sleeve could be a good option for any season. We especially love the 20 UPF sun protection and its moisture-wicking blend of polyester, cotton, wool, and Tencel fibers.
Pelican Personal Utility G40 Go Case: $34 (15% Off)
Pelican has some awesome products, from its protective vault cases to its travel gear. Our top pick is the personal utility go cases, which come in several different sizes (although the G40 is the best size if fitting in a smartphone or wallet).
The G40 is a useful place to keep your cards and wallet, or to stash all your electronic accoutrements while traveling. Plus, this waterproof, crushproof, and “everyday stuff proof” case has rubberized protective bumpers and a compartment divider. In other words, an airtight deal.

Osprey SnowKit Duffel: $97 (25% Off)
Yes, Osprey makes bags for your snow gear. Yes, this one is awesome. The ripstop nylon-clad SnowKit has a U-shaped compartment for boots complete with a ventilation window, as well as designated interior compartments for hats, jackets, and extra layers.
Other features include a side handle, padded backpack straps, and webbing lash points. Essentially, it’s 45 L of endless carrying possibility.
Stoic Maroon Bells Flannel — Men’s: $18 (55% Off)
The lumberjack look really never went out of style. And the main feature of this look (for me at least) is a warm, cozy flannel. The relaxed fit Maroon Bells long-sleeve is a cotton-poly blend, so it doesn’t hang, isn’t too heavy, and is as quick-dry as flannels come. It’s perfect for layering or a night out on the mountain town.
Also, the entire Stoic line is up to 75 percent off on Backcountry. So if flannel isn’t your go-to, you can shop other stuff as well.
Arc’teryx FYX 13 Messenger Bag: $119 (20% Off)
Arc’teryx has always been a jacket brand in my mind. But after stumbling upon its bags, I’m growing to love the brand’s gear products as well. This shoulder-slung commuter bag has a water-resistant top flap, meaning the contents in the padded laptop compartment and interior zip pockets will stay dry.
The bag also has a reflective logo and reflector strip on the outside of the bag for cyclists. Besides your laptop and work stuff, there’s even room to carry a water bottle or gym clothes inside.
Rumpl NanoLoft Puffy Blanket: $149 (Free Hydro Flask w/ Purchase)
Rumpl NanoLoft camping blanket: We like the navy and Fire Fade color options, but they’ll all keep you cozy. Made with recycled insulating material, Rumpl blankets are perfect for adding warmth without adding bulk.
We’ve tried them, and they’re perfect as sleeping blankets, camping mats for kids, or puffy wraps if you get chilly around the campfire. Don’t worry if you don’t see the free Hydro Flask bottle in your cart. There’s no code needed for this sweet deal.
OK, this jacket is pretty awesome. The 700-fill water-repellent down makes this jacket puffy enough but fairly lightweight at 13-15 ounces. The coat’s vertical baffles are constructed to conform to body shape and provide top-shelf warmth. And both men’s and women’s versions have zippered hand pockets and wind-protected thumb holes for layering.
While not the lightest on the market, it is extremely versatile. The Hole in the Wall jacket’s interior chest pocket doubles as stuff sack, so you can pack it up and take it anywhere.
Sperry is pretty creative when it comes to making shoes. Its newest Bionic line of boat shoes has uppers made from plastic materials pulled from our oceans. Don’t worry, the rest of the shoe features classic components like a rubber outsole, rawhide laces, and a shock-absorbing heel.
In addition to looking savvy, you can be sustainable with your purchase. Each pair of Bionic boat shoes saves roughly five plastic bottles from the environment. Get 20 percent off any full-price shoe in the collection with the code 20SP914. The deal lasts through September 23.
California Cowboy Tropic Shirt — Men’s: $59 (40% Off)
September means that fall and winter gear is just hitting the market and summer gear is hitting the sale rack. Introducing California Cowboy’s tropical High Water shirt. Besides the gorgeous bird of paradise pattern, this updated version of the brand’s original buttondown Aloha design boasts a waterproof phone pocket, sunglass loop, and beer pocket.
Yes, each shirt has a beer pocket and comes with a koozie and bottle opener. Put on this shirt and you’ll be the most popular kid at the beach, crag, or campground.
Black Diamond Trail Pro Trekking Poles: $105 (25% Off)
Some of us thru-hike, some trail run up mountains, and some need help navigating tricky terrain. But we all need a good pair of trekking poles.
The Black Diamond Trail Pros have extended grip handles, easy lock adjustments, and an internal shock-absorption system to control rebound on rugged trails. They weigh just over a pound and collapse to 27 inches. These poles are a perfect choice for anyone in any season.
