While some brick-and-mortar stores will remain closed today to incentivize us to play outside, online retailers are open for business (including REI), even extending Black Friday sales straight through the weekend (if they haven’t started already). If you know the gear you are looking for, check out our Gear Search Tool to figure out where you can buy it at the best price–we have access to the inventory of almost 100 retailers and it costs you nothing. Otherwise, we had a chance to preview some of the great deals available this weekend–here are a few of our favorites.
Performance Bicycle discounted pretty much everything up to 60%–full bikes, parts, accessories, and all. For example, you can one of the bikes we ride, the Diamondback Podium Optum or the equivalent Diamondback Podium Equipe, for up to $3000 off retail this weekend. The HED Stinger wheels alone are worth a huge chunk of the remaining price.
Backcountry has a sale on all the major brands, discounting gear up to 50% on Marmot, Prana, Columbia, Kuhl, Smith, and more. But for the climbers, saving over $200 on a Black Diamond Camalot C4 Package (#.3-6) is pretty hard to beat. Winter is a great time to build your summer rack.
The award-winning Atmos AG packs from Osprey are on sale over at Eastern Mountain Sports–save $50 or more on these comfortable heavy-load carrying packs.
