Land's End, Amazon, REI, and Dick's

Whether you sleep under the stars regularly or you’re still learning the difference between an oak and an elm, it’s a great time to stock up on gear for all your hiking and camping adventures. Amazon and outdoor retailers aren’t waiting until Black Friday to rollout major discounts on everything from boots and apparel to sleeping bags and tents.

Need a new set of trekking poles? How about saving 53 percent on these best-selling TrailBuddy Trekking Poles with more than 39,000 perfect five-star ratings at Amazon. Not every hiker uses poles, but every hiker needs high quality footwear, even if they’re not trekking at high elevations. Fortunately, some of the best hiking shoes and boots of 2022 are super marked down right now.

For example, these Merrell Moab 2 Waterproof Hiking Boots that one travel writer says have lasted her 14 years are currently 40 percent  off at REI. However, if you prefer low-top shoes, you’re in luck, too. Backcountry has dropped the price of these Salomon X Crest GTX Hiking Shoes from $120 to just $72 — that’s a 40 percent savings. And don’t forget to scoop up apparel that can stand up to cold-weather hikes and the elements, such as this Eddie Bauer Women’s fleece quarter-zip layer for $30 (it’s half price!) or a Lands End Men’s Waterproof Rain Jacket for 50 percent off.

These early Black Friday deals also include serious savings on must-have camping essentials, whether you’re pitching a tent in the backyard or setting off to a national park. You can score  this Coleman Dome Tent with a screened-in porch, which is currently nearly half off and marked down to just $117 at Amazon. This North Face sleeping bag is discounted to $50 at Dick’s Sporting Goods, while this camp chair and gas fire pit from REI are 50 percent off.

With all the money you’ll save on new gear, why not use the extra cash, or at least $80 of it, to invest in a National Parks Annual Pass? It’s the gift to yourself that keeps on giving. Still, that purchase can wait. The deals below, sorted by retailer, aren’t guaranteed to last, and as usual, supplies are limited. Make a list of what you need — or wing it — just make sure you check out these sales. Oh yeah, and happy trails!
