If you enjoy the great outdoors like we do, fighting crowds on Black Friday for deals on household appliances probably isn’t your thing. Still, outdoor equipment isn’t cheap so here’s a guide to help you find the best deals on camping and hiking gear on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
REI opens at 8:00 Friday and will have 50% off ALL their REI brand outerwear. Puffy coats are excellent for a warm layer when you’re backpacking and hiking and they’re super lightweight. Their Winter Sale is also in full swing with deals on all kinds of winter gear. Admittedly there isn’t a lot for campers and hikers but if you’re into snow sports, it’s game on!
Dick’s Sporting Goods may not have all the items on your outdoor gear list but it might be a good place to start. Doors open at Dick’s at midnight on Thanksgiving so stop by and if they don’t have what you’re looking for, hit up one of the other retailers on this list the next day!
Bass Pro Shops are running Black Friday sales starting at 5am but if you’re holding out for online deals on Cyber Monday, you may be too late. Bass Pro’s online deals are running now but end at midnight Sunday so be sure to check them out before the deals are gone.
Backcountry.com is running a Thanksgiving sale with up to 50% off on 17,000 items (yep, that’s a lot of gear).
Several online retailers including Cabela’s and Campmor are offering free shipping on many orders for a limited time.
And it’s not just retailers that are getting into deal mode this weekend. Kelty is offering 25% off backpacks, tents, and sleeping bags through Monday with code “KT25″.
