Save up to 50%: Backcountry Winter Gear Sale
This is the Goldilocks of Salomon’s trail shoes, balancing big tread and a cushioned heel with a speedy ride. The mudguard and gusseted tongue keep out trail debris, but it’s the Contagrip soles for traction on wet surfaces that are especially appealing this time of year. The waterproof GTX version is also on sale for $110.
Fjallraven Vidda Pro Trouser — Men’s: $120 (20% Off)
Made to withstand repeated brushes with rock and limbs, these reinforced, water-resistant pants come in handy while tackling outdoor chores, too. The seven pockets keep a map, knife, phone, and other goodies within reach. These should last you for years — just note other Backcountry shoppers suggest you should size up.
Patagonia Black Hole Duffel 55L: $97 (30% Off)
The Black Hole Duffel is approaching icon status as a travel bag and gear-hauler. You know them when you see them. The slightly tapered silhouette and padded bottom help the bag stand up and stay open for access to your gear.
Daisy-chained loops make it easy to tack on a few bulkier extras, while the backpack straps and removable shoulder strap are great options for going hands-free. These are popular for a reason, and select colors are on sale now.
Patagonia Snap-T Pullovers — Women’s: From $62 (Up to 40% Off)
These comfy pullovers are wardrobe staples for a reason. They’re great on the trail in shoulder season — or around the house — with cuffed waist and wrists and a snap-up high collar to ward off any drafts. If you have a tough time choosing between cotton or Synchilla, wait until you see all the color options.
Columbia Steens Mountain Fleece Jacket — Men’s: From $24 (Up to 31% Off)
Fleece jackets are a staple of winter layering. Men can get in on the fleece sale with these full-zip jackets from Columbia. At under $30, these are hard to pass up.
Marmot Lynx Insulated Anorak — Women’s: $70 (42% Off)
In Britain, “anorak” is also slang for “obsessive types.” And since that’s what we do with gear, we’re nerding out on the these windproof, lightly insulated anoraks that trap just enough warmth while on the move.
The nylon face fabric is also water-resistant so you stay dry as you scramble for cover. To be an anorak about it, ponder this: The kangaroo pocket is a vertical, reach-through pocket for keeping your hands warm, and it’s behind the front flap pouch — which mimics a kangaroo’s horizontal pouch.
Salomon ADV Skin 5L Hydration Vest: $90 (33% Off)
This streamlined vest slyly hides several stash options. There are loops for carrying poles and stretchy pockets of different sizes to snugly hold energy gels or a rain shell.
Cords around the front pockets keep soft flasks from flopping around and can adjust as you go through water or electrolyte mix. The interior sleeve can house a 1.5L water reservoir.
Smartwool Merino 150 Boxer Brief — Men’s: $40 (20% Off)
Wool is great for keeping warm and wicking moisture at the same time, especially next to skin. Many a guy has been hooked by that one-two punch of performance and comfort, making these a quiet best-seller for Smartwool. Prices vary by color, and there are other styles (printed and patterned) on sale with more limited stock.
Sorel Madson Moc Toe Boot — Men’s: From $125 (Up to 31% Off)
Here’s how you keep your feet dry in comfort and style. The waterproof Nubuck leather and lace-up give these boots a classic look, while the EVA-cushioned insole and high-traction outsole add performance for all-day wear.
Topo Designs Rover 16L Backpack: From $78 (Up to 44% Off)
These everyday-carry backpacks are fun and functional, especially on sale. The straightforward design puts a zip pocket on the outside and a larger stash pouch on the top of the daypack, with room on the sides for a water bottle.
