Viberg is the standard for Canadian bootmaking. The third-generation owned and operated outfit produces only high-quality boots made to stand the test of time. Which is why fellow Canadian brand Altitude Sports partnered with Viberg for three special editions of the Scout Boot, collaborating on the design and specifically choosing each colorway and material down to the lacing.
The Altitude Sports x Viberg Men’s Scout Boots offer a brushed mushroom chamois suede leather upper with deep-grooved panels. A lightweight Vibram Morflex sole provides superior grip and cushion and waxed lacing adds a further touch of style. The collaboration marries Viberg’s exacting quality with Altitude Sports’ expertise in well-made technical apparel.

Garmin Fenix 5 Sale
Save $150 Garmin makes some of the most reliable GPS tracking watches around. We’ve run with the Forerunner 235, the Vivoactive 3 and the Fenix 5S. Beyond marathon training, one of our favorite ways to use the Fenix 5S is for hiking. We awarded it one of the Best Hiking Watches this year and are still wearing it around town. It tracked our routes seamlessly, and the battery life is pretty impressive. Right now, you can save $150 off a variety of Garmin Fenix 5 models.
Whether you love running, hiking or adventuring, the Fenix 5 is the perfect model. It’s a hefty watch but comes with 20 hours of battery life, a super strong face and design, and a comfortable band. Check your VO2 max, messages, steps and more after each run around the block or down the hill. The watch monitors training status as well as how long you need to recover after your logged workouts. The Fenix 5 Plus and 5X Plus are all on sale today through Monday, November 26. — Meg Lappe
Weiss Automatic Issue Field Watches
Save 35%: Weiss’s American-designed, hand-finished and hand-assembled Automatic Issue Field Watches are some of our favorites to come out of the American microbrand movement, and for Black Friday, the company is running an incredible deal: you can take 35% off the watches’ MSRP of $1,850 (white or black dial) or $1,995 (blue dial).
The Automatic Issue Field Watch is 38mm, features the Caliber 2100 automatic movement assembled with over 150 Swiss parts along with Weiss’s American-made components — it features automatic winding, a beat rate of 28,800 bph, a 65-hour power reserve, hacking, and Incabloc shock protection. It uses a sapphire crystal for both the front and display back, black oxide-treated steel hands with Super-LumiNova lume and hand-painted, naval brass dials. The watches are also waterproof down to 100m and ship on olive green Cordura canvas straps with 2-Year Weiss Watch Company Warranties.
A deal this good isn’t likely to present itself again, so if you’ve been considering a Weiss watch, pull that trigger now! — Oren Hartov

Competitive Cyclist Santa Cruz and Yeti Sale
Save Up to 30%: A full-suspension mountain bike is a big investment. The best trail bikes often run upwards of $6,000, which puts them out of reach for most. But every once in a blue moon, the deal of a lifetime will pop up on some of the best mountain bikes on the market. Such is the case with Competitive Cyclist’s Yeti and Santa Cruz Black Friday sale. 30-percent off may not seem like much, but when applied to big ticket items like Yeti’s SB5, that amounts to over $2,100 in savings. Some of the best bikes we’ve ever ridden are included in the sale, like Yeti’s SB4.5. Even if you weren’t in the market for a new mountain bike, this sale puts a new trail steed tantalizingly close to affordability. — AJ Powell
