Winter is quickly approaching, which means so is the gifting season. Whether you’re looking for a present to give a nature lover or want to upgrade your own camping and hiking gear, this epic Backcountry sale can help you find deals on thousands of top-rated products from major brands like Patagonia, The North Face, and others.

Backcountry's massive pre-Black Friday event is broken up under three different sales right now, all happening at once. The first is the brand’s Cyber sale, featuring over 9000 products discounted up to 80 percent off. Next is the hike and camp gear sale, which has over 600 products like sleeping bags, tents, and more for up to 70 percent off. Lastly, you can save up to 70 percent on over 300 products (mainly clothing), specifically from Backcountry and Stoic. You can also get free two-day shipping on orders of $50 or more.


With over 10,000 products to choose from and significant savings to work with, we’ve picked out some products from each sale that we think are worth checking out. Many products from top brands like Columbia and Girlfriend Collective are featured in the Cyber sale. However, the Patagonia Micro Puff hooded insulated jacket caught our eye at 40 percent off. Originally priced at $299, this water-repellant, windproof jacket, now $179, is packable, comes in three colors, has multiple pockets, and PlumaFill insulation, which the brand claims works better in wet weather than down. Also included in this sale are Alo Yoga’s high-waisted airbrush leggings, which are up to 55 percent off. These workout leggings would normally set you back $91, but are now on sale for about $41. According to shoppers, they allow for a wide range of movement, especially with activities like dance and yoga. In addition, the moisture-wicking fabric of the leggings has undergone an anti-odor treatment, so they're less likely to smell bad after high-intensity workouts.

Beyond fashion, you can find a lot of great outdoor accessories during this sales event. Though there are plenty of things you’ll need while camping and hiking, one essential for multi-day trips is a proper sleeping bag. The Stoic Groundwork sleeping bag, featured in the camping and hiking sale, can keep you warm even when the temperature drops to 20 degrees Fahrenheit. The sleeping bag has undergone a water-repellent treatment, is synthetically filled, and has a collar to protect and keep your head warm. The best part is that it’s marked down 20 percent from $85 to $68, so you'll save about $17.
