Although I’d much rather be hiking or mountain biking the day after Thanksgiving, it’s tough to pass up great deals on outdoor equipment. Here are a few deals you need to know about this year.

REI: The first 300 customers through the door at REI stores on Black Friday will receive gift cards ranging in value from $5 to $100. Stores open at 8am so there’s no need to wake up before dawn – sweet.

Bass Pro Shops: Apparently there will be different deals at each store from 6 to 11am on Black Friday. For example, my local Bass Pro will have a $39.99 dog bed for just $14.94 and a digital food dehydrator for $70 off the regular price. Check here to find your local store and view the deals in your area.

Dick’s Sporting Goods: The folks at Dick’s are being coy with their deals this year and to find out what’s on sale you have to check the website after 6pm EST tonight. Doors open at 5am on Black Friday and if you’re shopping online you’ll get free shipping on orders over $49 all weekend. Honestly I’m a little confused about what’s on sale where and when so it may be worthwhile to call your local store.

Backcountry.com: No Black Friday deals as far as we can tell but their “Secret Stash Sale” is going on right now with up to 25% off 10,000 items.

Cabela’s: Ho-hum, Cabela’s is offering free shipping on orders over $99 through December 1. Of course there’s also the everyday “Bargain Cave” with thousands of items marked up to 70% off where you may find a decent deal.

That’s all we got so far, if you know of any Black Friday deals on outdoor equipment we missed, fill us in through the comment section!

    Hi Tripleblaze.com…Great website and blog post.

    Thought I’d drop in my two cents on Black Friday for outdoor equipment. I’m editor-in-chief of The Cheap Outdoors (http://www.thecheapoutdoors.com), which is an outdoor gear and clothing deal website. We’ve been posting tons of coupons and deals for Black Friday and will be for Cyber Monday too.

    Most of the discounts this year look to be from 10-25% but many are sitewide. You might be able to pick up a 2010 model jacket or tent for something other than full price. Free shipping seems to be a popular offer too. We’re posting deals as we see them so check us out. Feel free to pass along any other deals you think our readers would enjoy.
