Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial kickoff to the camping season in the U.S. And it ushers in more deals on outdoor gear than any other time of the year. Beginning today and stretching into early next week, numerous brands are running significant sales on their entire product lines.
We’ve selected the best discounts on the best products to highlight here, but this is by no means an exhaustive list. For more sweet buys, check out this Memorial Day gear sale at Backcountry.
Jack Wolfskin Prelight 2.5L Jacket — Men’s & Women’s: 20% Off
Through May 29, every item on Jack Wolfskin’s website is 20% off. The brand is known for its innovations in materials and design — all for a reasonable price.
You could easily kit out an entire backpacking trip with this sale alone. One standout product is the Prelight 2.5L Jacket, an ultralight rain shell that weighs just 6.5 ounces in a size medium. We recently tested the Texapore Pro waterproof membrane that’s built into the Prelight, and it proved to be strong against the elements.Shop Women’s Shop Men’s
Vasque Breeze Hiking Boots — Men’s & Women’s: 25% Off
Vasque makes premium hiking boots with classic styling and high-mileage durability. The Breeze has been a staple in the brand’s lineup for nearly 20 years. We tested a pair of the most current Breeze boots. Over a 9-day backpacking trip through mud and snow, these boots impressed at every turn.
After this year’s redesign, we’re convinced the Breeze is better than ever. The new Trail Strider outsole provides multidirectional traction on all kinds of terrain. Many components of the boot are now made from recycled materials, including the upper mesh and the waterproof membrane.
If the Breeze doesn’t meet your needs, Vasque is currently offering 25% off all current styles.Shop Men’s Shop Women’s
