25% Off All Sea to Summit X-Seal & Go Containers $29.89 $39.95

“Whether packing dinner into the backcountry or lunch at the office, these containers are a must-have. I love them because they seal up tight so you don’t have to worry about leaks, and they fold down flat when empty for ultimate portability.”

60% Off Big Agnes Tumble 3 mtnGLO Tent $199.99 $329.95

“I used the smaller 2-person version of this tent while motorcycle camping across the country. It stood up to daily human and canine use for more than 200 nights and weathered rain, wind, and unexpected storms like a champ. And, of course, the built-in LED lights made for both a convenient light source and a cozy camp atmosphere.”

25% off all Light & Motion Bike Lights

“I encourage getting outdoors on long, dark winter evenings, sometimes even on two wheels (fat bike or otherwise). For about a decade, I have relied on Light & Motion bike lights. They are quality LED blazers that ignite the darkness and last for years.”

20% Off Black Diamond / Pieps Sport Avalanche Safety Set $319.89 $399.95

“Everyone who skis backcountry in avalanche terrain needs a beacon, probe, and shovel. This is life-or-death equipment, and not optional. If your friend or loved one plans to travel backcountry and doesn’t have these three pieces of mandatory gear, it’s a great gift and a good time to get it on sale. Then, encourage them to sign up for an Avi 1 course and get educated!”

20% Off all MSR Snowshoes

“MSR makes some sweet snowshoes. For non-skiers looking for winter adventure or others who just want another way to access the wilds, snowshoes are a great choice. Use them on winter 14ers, hunting, fishing, or hut trips. They come in handy more than you’d expect and are simply fun (and sometimes utilitarian too). We’ve used and love the Lightning Ascent model for steep terrain.”

35% Off Exped DownMat Lite 5

“I’ve had my Exped Downmat for over five years, and it has stuck with me through countless nights on concrete floors, dusty desert rivers, and wet nights in the Boundary Waters.

Invest in something worth keeping with the Exped DownMat Lite 5.”

“The Terradora line caters to women, and I’ve learned from KEEN that the hiking boots and running shoes have been a massive success for the brand. One of our editors tested and loved the Waterproof Mid. Women interested in trail-ready boots or runners, and anyone shopping for their special lady, will find a range of styles and cuts. But the mid hikers we reviewed stood out for out-of-the-box comfort, rugged construction, and around-town style.”

25% Off Leatherman Skeletool KBx Knife $18.69 $24.95

“The Leatherman Skeletool KBx Knife boasts an impressively sharp blade in an unassuming package. It’s one of the lightest folding knives we’ve tested and doesn’t break the bank. After a couple months of use, I hardly notice it clipped to my waist or in my pocket, and it still holds an edge sharp enough to shave my arm hair.”
