Some excellent insulating jackets are on sale this week from Patagonia and The North Face. Plus, a firestarter, axe, and Jetboil stove make the list in this week’s Screaming Deals.
Stretchy, breathable, and warm: the Nano-Air is what you want in a layering jacket for active pursuits. Whether you’re skiing, climbing, or hiking, the Nano-Air is intended for high-output sports. It’ll keep you moderately warm as a standalone, and when you start sweating, the insulation will offer excellent air permeability so you won’t overheat.

Gerber 23.5-inch Axe: $45 (31% Off)
Supposedly, this axe chops three times deeper than the “average” axe. We’re not going to confirm or deny this description, but we do know that the Gerber Axe is 23.5 inches long and comes with a shock-absorbing and grippy handle. The blade has a PTFE coating for wood chopping with minimal sticking.
