The Fourth of July is a great time to be outdoors. And to celebrate, Backcountry is cutting prices in half on some of your favorite outdoors goods.
We’ve highlighted some of the more summer-friendly deals from the sale, but there are a ton more to explore yourself. Check out our picks and then see what else is marked down.
Celebrate With Savings: Up to 50% Off
Marmot Yolla Bolly Doublewide 30 Sleeping Bag — 30 Degree Down: $299 (25% Off)
Double up your camping nights with this two-person, three-season, 650-fill down sleeping bag. The Doublewide has a wraparound zipper for individual access, a down treatment to help it retain loft when damp, and silicone spots on the back for gripping a sleeping pad.
Marmot Helium Sleeping Bags — 15 Degree F Down: $309 (25% Off)
Marmot’s Helium is an ultralight sleeping bag for backpacking. It uses an 800-fill down insulation rated down to 15-degree temps.
The outer ripstop nylon gives it some durability against abrasions as well as a DWR treatment for shedding condensation. It is shaped with an anatomically designed footbox and has a drawcord hood to trap in warmth.
These Black Diamond headlamps have a lot of options, and perhaps a learning curve. However, once dialed, users can enjoy the ability to hold one button to adjust the brightness to a level of their liking, which the lamp remembers.
If a dark trail or crevasse warrants full brightness, they can swipe a side button for quick access, turn it off the same way, and the lamp returns to the previous setting.
The rechargeable Revolt can run on batteries for backup. The best-selling Spot 350 has three modes and runs on three AAA batteries. Both use the brand’s PowerTap to toggle on and off and other settings with a tap from gloved hands.
prAna Stretch Zion (Men’s) & Briann Pant (Women’s): $89 & From $36 (Up to 50% Off)
These two different pants are just two of prAna’s styles on sale. The men’s Stretch Zion pants offer abrasion- and rain-resistance for getting after it on trails and around town. Similarly, the Briann pants shape the Zion fabric into a slim pant with five-pocket jeans styling and UV protection.
Smartwool Hike Medium Crew Sock — Men’s: $15 (25% Off)
A backpacking classic, these crew socks rise higher than traditional midrise hiking boots. And they provide a medium level of cushioning under the foot and heel to prevent hot spots on long hikes. The upper foot is thinner for airflow, and the merino wool materials help them resist odors.
Alpine adventurers will enjoy savings on this base layer that can be worn by itself in the summer. Smartwool claims the wool will wick when needed and resist odors, even when it’s stuffed haphazardly into a backpack. Of course, it’ll remain a wardrobe staple come winter too.
Black Diamond Alpine FLZ Trekking Poles: $120 (25% Off)
Black Diamond has a few trekking poles on sale right now, but we’ll start with these folding options. The Alpine FLZ poles are designed to stay out of the way on flat terrain and then snap into position when trails get technical.
The brand’s SlideLock helps keep them from folding back. And its FlickLock tech allows for quick adjustments on the fly, like switching from uphill angles to downhill angles.
Black Diamond Carbon Cork Trekking Poles: $135 (25% Off)
These versatile, collapsible, carbon-fiber poles have two adjustment locks to dial your fit, or pack down when not needed. The cork grips are meant to offer a less sweaty grip than other materials, as is the foam grip on the pole’s tops, for when you need to choke up and mash on steep terrain.
Black Diamond Beta Light Tent — 2-Person, 3-Season: $203 (25% Off)
A weight-conscious tent for fast-and-light hikers and backpackers. This quick-pitch shelter is designed to work with Black Diamond’s adjustable trekking poles and DAC stakes.
It has reflective guy lines, a mesh valance, and two doors for easier shared access. Total weight is 1 pound 7 ounces without a footprint.
These mostly summer-themed deals are just a small slice of the ongoing Fourth of July sale at Backcountry.
We found plenty of warm-weather apparel and gear that you can put to use in the coming months, some of it marked down 50%! And if you’ve got winter on the brain, there are half-off deals on winter goods, too.
