The general rule of thumb with outdoor gear sales is that they happen at the end of the season, and the deepest discounts apply to items from past seasons. There’s nothing wrong with this, and there’s certainly something to be said for planning ahead and stocking up for the coming year. Many quality items don’t change year to year in anything more than color.
Occasionally though, retailers will offer fleeting discounts on full-priced items that are entirely in-season. Backcountry is running one of these promotions right now on camping and climbing gear. The catch? You can only pick one thing. Below I’ve outlined my five favorite products that I found in digging through Backcountry’s wares, things that I think are otherwise worth their full price. Use them as an entry to the sale, or dive right in and find that specific thing you need to round out your kit. Then use the code CAMPCLIMB20 at checkout to get the discount.
