Great outdoor gear at an amazing price: That’s our goal each week. Check out the bargains below and save on gear for your next adventure.
Black Diamond’s newest helmet is heralded as the most durable foam helmet yet. Designed to take impact after impact, the polycarbonate shell on top and EPP body provide lightweight support and comfort. And 15 ventilation holes and an easy-to-adjust fit make it comfortable and versatile.
Mountain Hardwear Multi-Pitch 20 Backpack: $84 (30% Off)
Created to be the perfect pack for both carrying gear and for climbing with a pack, the Multi-Pitch 20 uses a canvas/Kevlar fabric for durability. A mesh side pocket carries climbing shoes or a layer easily and then stows away for streamlining while climbing.
Carry a rope over the top on the hike up, and then get rid of the shoulder straps and hip belt. Use the attached haul points when you need to trail the pack behind you.
Black Diamond Focus Climbing Shoes — Women’s: $100 (40% Off)
For steep terrain, having a downturned shoe is key to be able to utilize tiny feet at an overhanging angle. These women’s-specific shoes feature a low-volume last to fit narrower feet. And, the durable leather upper and soft knit tongue can be fastened with hook-and-loop straps for a precise fit.
Patagonia Venga Rock Pant — Women’s: $45-53 (Up to 50% Off)
These organic cotton/polyester pants have enough stretch to make those tricky moves while maintaining durability. The zippered thigh pocket fits a phone, and whatever other small items you might want to bring on a multipitch climb. And, the waistband is adjustable for a perfect fit.
Note, Patagonia has updated its sizing, and these now run small, based on our personal experience and online reviews.
If you need a capable and versatile shoe for long and complicated approaches, the TX4 is a go-to. These shoes add a more durable leather upper to my personal favorite approach shoes, the similarly built TX3s. And, they climb almost as well as they hike with a rubber toe cap and Vibram MegaGrip soles.
