It’s a bit early to think about holiday and Christmas shopping. But there are great deals out there now for those who shop early.


Cabela’s Pre-Black Friday Daily Deals

Hunters and anglers, or folks who want to score a good deal on camping gear and apparel, should check out the sale at Cabela’s rolling through Nov. 23.

New deals will appear online and in stores daily, with up to 75 percent savings on outdoors gear.

There are far too many to list, but a few examples of the deals going on now follow.

SOG Field Pup Knife: Retails for $80, on sale now for $20. This is a solid little survival knife that we’ve used many times, and at this price it’s a steal.


Princeton Tech Fuel: Retails for $30, on sale now for $15. The Fuel is a good value headlamp that kicks out up to 78 lumens and burns for up to 146 hours on low. It’s made in the USA.

Leatherman Rebar: Retails for $60, on sale now for $45. A versatile multi-tool, the Rebar has a knife, saw, driver, knives, file, bottle opener, can opener, pliers, and more.


Victorinox Huntsman Knife: Retails for $50, on sale now for $35. The classic pocket knife even has a corkscrew for those concerts in the park.

Cabela’s Men’s Shearling Wool Slippers: Retails for $70, on sale for $40. The temps are about to fall, and for many it’s time to change from flip flops to slippers. Score a fresh pair for a new year.


For those looking to make big-ticket purchases, now’s the time. REI’s twice-yearly member sale is going on now, offering 20 percent off any full-price product. The Winter Sale runs concurrently, with many products up to 30 percent off.

Members (anyone can become one for $20 a lifetime) also get 20 percent off one REI Garage item.

A couple of note:


REI Quarter Dome 3 Tent: Retail price $379, on sale for $279. One of the best selling tents in the US can be yours for a serious discount. The one- and two-person versions are also on deep discount.

REI Brand Sleeping Bags: All REI branded sleeping bags are 25 percent off. This brings some popular models down to fairly reasonable prices, such as the 20-degree down Igneo for $220-$235.

There are many more deals on both websites. Check out Cabela’s or REI and save serious money on your Christmas list.
