Backcountry Sale: Big Brands for Less
Below are some of our favorite product deals from each of the big brands on sale. Inventory is limited, so if you see something you like, add it to your cart — it won’t last long.
This down jacket is ready for ski touring and cold-weather outings. The 850-fill goose down and strategically placed Coreloft insulation keep you warm without overheating. It stuffs down into its own pocket for easy packing, and the slim fit means it pairs nicely with a shell.
The SL may as well stand for “streamlined.” Arc’teryx made it as a lighter, more packable answer to its Beta LT hybrid hardshell. It uses a GORE C-Knit backer with tougher GORE fabric in the shoulders to protect against wear from backpacks. There’s also a helmet-friendly hood and zippered waterproof hand pockets.
A perennial favorite with slight updates over the years, the Nano Puff uses PrimaLoft Gold Eco for wet-weather warmth and is made more sustainably. It’s a puffy Patagonia knows you’ll wear as an outer layer a lot, so it has a recycled ripstop exterior to withstand brushes with branches as well as a water-repellent treatment to shed some precip.
The down sweater stuffs 800-fill down into its horizontal baffles to keep the insulation from shifting. To protect it, there’s a recycled ripstop shell with a DWR treatment. This can go ice climbing, down the slopes, or just help you stay warm while sitting around outside. Zippered hand pockets can warm your hands or stash small items, and the internal chest pocket is also its stuff sack.
These fleeces exemplify the all-day wear of hiking during the day, dipping into town, and then staying warm at home. The full zip can put the collar all the way up to block wind, hand pockets keep your digits warm, and Raglan sleeves add some reinforcement against backpack straps.
In short, this is a pared-down version of the full-zip sweater: fewer pockets, less zipper, same warmth.
Patagonia Nano Puff Parka — Women’s: From $195 (Up to 30% Off)
Patagonia tweaked this parka to protect a bit more real estate, and it still stuffs into its own chest pocket. Its hydrophobic PrimaLoft Gold insulation keeps you warm even when it’s wet.
Patagonia Black Hole 55L Duffel Bag: From $97 (Up to 30% Off)
This bag makes lots of roundup lists because it’s a bestseller. And it’s a bestseller because people love it to stash gear on the way to the gym, boulder, beach, vacation spot … you get the idea. It’s versatile and rugged, allows you to separate items inside, and has loops for latching extra gear onto the outside. This is the 55L Duffel, but it also comes in other sizes.
Backpackers need more support in the ankles and underfoot for long, weighted-down treks. The 4D chassis is Salomon’s answer to a flexible platform, providing each when needed, and the Nubuck leather is waterproofed to keep out the elements.
Padded insoles, a Contagrip outsole, and dialing in the fit with a traditional lace-up round out the backpacking-minded details.
Designed for stability and longevity, the X Ultra 3 boots use a mix of leather and mesh for lightweight support that breathes despite being waterproof. These use a footbed to keep your feet and stride on rails (so to speak) and an EVA midsole and OrthoLite sock liner for cushioned support.
These all-weather hikers have Contagrip traction on wet and dry surfaces. Salomon gave these a 9mm drop, familiar to runners, and used a GORE-TEX Comfort membrane for waterproofing with a nod to breathability.
The upper half gets all the layers around town, piling up the warmth while your legs are left to chill. Give your lower half some love with a breathable layer of insulation that will fit under your hiking pants, jeans, and, of course, ski layers.
A fall and winter bestseller, this midweight base layer works well with other layers and should fend off any chills around the house by itself. Like most of Smartwool’s apparel, this form-fitting crew uses flatlock seams and merino wool.
A quarter zip lets you release a little heat and perhaps relax your look once you’re inside, especially when wearing it as your only layer inside.
Outdoor Research Interstellar Bivy: From $206 (Up to 25% Off)
This four-season bivy has enhanced breathability thanks to OR’s Ascentshell that starts “breathing” as soon as you’re inside instead of waiting for moisture to build up. It uses a Delrin single-pole system, a guyline loop, and two stakes for setup.
Columbia Rainie Falls Rain Jacket — Women’s: From $90 (Up to 10% Off)
This hybrid rainshell has a fleece lining because you’re likely wearing both on colder rainy days. The fleece adds a touch of softness and is synthetic, so it will still insulate if it does collect moisture. Other rain jacket essentials to keep water from sneaking in are the adjustable hood, cuffs, hem, and dropped tail.
