The Best Black Friday Deals on Outdoor Gear Are Right Here

If you’re looking for the best Cyber Monday and Cyber Week deals on outdoor gear, head here.

Black Friday is here, which means some of your favorite brands and gear stores — we’re talking Backcountry, Columbia Sportswear, Patagonia, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear, The North Face, and more — have huge sales right now. We’re rounding up the best of these Black Friday deals to help you get the most out of your next trip. We’ll be focusing on sitewide sales from top retailers but we’ll also highlight discounts on outdoor essentials such as tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, camp cookware, water filtration systems, and much more.

Outdoor activities should not be expensive hobbies. There are high price tags on high-quality gear, but sales like these mean you can stockpile new goodies without emptying the bank account. Do you want to camp more in the backcountry? Check out deals on backpacking gear. Is there an adventure on your bucket list? Start thinking about what you’ll need and take advantage of the Black Friday discounts.

What to Know About Black Friday 2019

The majority of the action will happen on Black Friday, November 29 and Cyber Monday, December 2. Retailers will typically increase discounts for online shoppers on Cyber Monday, but that doesn’t mean that the weekend will be lacking deals. If we had to pick specific times to shop, though, we would definitely choose Friday and Monday.

REI Black Friday

Huge shoutout to REI, one of our favorite retailers. Since 2015, the nationwide co-op has been asking Americans to #OptOutside rather than give in to the seduction of Black Friday. This year, however, REI is stepping it up by hosting several environmental clean-up events across the country and offering DIY kits so folks can host their own. Because let’s face it: We create too much trash and the outdoors are suffering because of it.

“We can do better for future generations. We must act now.” —Eric Artz, President and CEO

We invite you to Opt to Act today—get out, clean up and leave the world better than you found it. #OptOutside

— REI (@REI) November 29, 2019

We wholeheartedly agree with the philosophy and initiative. You won’t see any deals from REI on Black Friday, however, we’re looking forward to what the retailer has in store for Cyber Monday.
