The standard in women’s down sleeping bags, the Blue Kazoo from The North Face has been lightened to just 2 pounds, 14 ounces but it’s still rated to 15° F. It’s also 40% off at Backcountry.com and just $137.37 for the regular-length bag.
Backcountry.com started their semi-annual sale this weekend. Loads of winter and end-of-year products are on sale with pretty big discounts.
Here’s an unusual sale item – and no, I don’t buy a lot of stuff my dog doesn’t really need. Anyone who’s a dog owner and a backpacker will understand how important a pair of dog booties can be. In winter (especially during spring melt-and-freeze season) and on rocky, desert trips they can save your dog’s feet from turning raw and hamburger-looking. These Ruffwear Bark’n Boots Grip Trex booties are cut snug so they won’t slide around and fall off as easily, plus they have sticky rubber soles to put four good soles on the ground. Wonder if you’ll even be able to keep up with only two good boots to help you.

There have been tons of snow dumping the past few weeks. Great for skiing, snowshoeing, and winter outdoor stuff the Volition jacket from Lowe Alpine is a top-end shell. It’s a Schoeller Nanosphere jacket for great water shedding and warmth from the fleece interior. Just remember that Lowe jackets tend to run one to one-and-a-half sizes larger than most other brands. 41% off at Sierra Trading Post.
Two big coupons from Sierra Trading Post this month.
The SOG Powerlock tool is simply awesome. It’s gear-driven pliers grip like crasy and the high-end stainless steel looks great and lasts forever. It’s American-made too so the warranty is good but probably won’t be needed as good as SOG’s knives are. Down from $105, it’s on sale for just $65.95 at Sierra Trading Post.
The Marmot Trestles sleeping bag is a light spring and summer bag rated warm to 30-degrees. Go ahead and lighten your pack for the summer, the long bag is $57.82 and the regular-length bag is $71.06 at Backcountry.com’s Outlet.
the men’s multisports jacket is a cycling, running, and long-distance softshell from Zoot Sports. Just a 10-ounce water-repellent, wind-resistant, and breathable jacket and it’s 52% off, down from $95 to just $44.95 at Sierra Trading Post.
REI-Outlet is offering a code-free coupon for 20% off the highest-priced item in your cart at checkout. There are a few limitations on the deal. First it expires on Feb 7th, 2008, and then there’s the fine print:
Offer not valid at REI.com, REI stores, REI Adventures or REI Outdoor School. Offer not valid on special orders, prior purchases, package discounts, REI gift cards or E-gift certificates, gift boxes, memberships, shop services, rentals. Offer not valid on bicycles. Offer not valid on boats. Offer not valid on GPS receivers, two-way radios, phones, personal locator beacons.
The Clip Flashlight tent is a classic backpacking tent. Only 3 pounds, 11 ounces fully trail-ready it’s a 2-person, 3-season tent that’s completely bombproof and because it’s not freestanding it doesn’t sag or wet out like many current ultralight tents. Not freestanding isn’t a big deal either, only in deep snow camping do you not have dirt, trees, or rocks to hold it up.
