  • $90.19 – Moonstone Morpheus Hybrid 650 Down-Polarguard Delta Sleeping Bag

    Moonstone Down and Polarguard Delta Morpheus 20-degree sleeping bagTons of deals lately from Steep and Cheap. Today’s sale is the Moonstone Morpheus hybrid Down-Polarguard Delta sleeping bag. I’m a big fan of Moonstone sleeping bags and this model even got a Backpacker Magazine Editor’s Choice Award. The Morpheus is rated to 20 degrees and only weighs 2 pounds, 11 ounces – not bad for 650-fill down (across the top and sides of the bag) and a wet-weather backup plan of Polarguard Delta insulation (on the bottom and around the feet). $90.19 is a good price for this well-rated, innovative sleeping bag with a lifetime warranty.

    As always the price is only good today, 5/29/2006, or until the sleeping bags sell out – whichever comes first.

    $10.99 – Memorex 50-pack AA Alkaline Batteries

    Memorex 50-pack High Performance AA Alkaline BatteriesWhat a Memorial Day, I headed out the the gas grill today and the auto-ignition switch didn’t work. Turns out that the grill igniter needs an AA battery to make it spark. …even grills need batteries now!

    I picked up a few batteries from the grocery store, but for a few dollars more ($10.99 total) I also ordered a 50-pack of AA Alkaline Batteries from Amazon. Grab several packs or something else you’ve been wanting to get the order over $25 and shipping is free too.

    $124.99 – Half-off, The North Face Men’s Recon Waterproof Jacket

    Altrec.com is clearing out the Recon waterproof hard shell from The North Face at 50% off. If I needed another waterproof jacket this one would be on my list at any price – and for $125 it would be a no-brainer to buy. The Recon is extra durable with 3-ply waterproof fabric everywhere and fused seams to save the weight of stitching and seam-seal tape. The North Face sows off their new technology of fusing seams by making them gray – which is a bit ugly, but just enough to make the jacket look cooler. They’ve also kept the traditional pit zips, instead of using those long front pocket-chest-shoulder vents that seem to screw up the fit. One thing I really like about this jacket though, the hood is removable so if it’s snowing or just cold and not raining you don’t have to keep tucking the hood down all day.

    Also, a bit more of a discount with free groung shipping on this jacket or any other Altrec order of $45 or more and no sales tax outside of Washington state.

    $131.25 – Arc’teryx Sidewinder Comp Softshell Jacket, 62% Off

    Arc'teryx Sidewinder Comp Men's softshell jacketAlways a favorite, Steep and Cheap has Arc’teryx’s top-of-the-line Sidewinder Comp softshell jacket on clearance for just $131.25 today. As usual it’s a one-day-only or until-sold-out sale – and it’s worth it for this shell.

    The Sidewinder Comp is a hybrid softshell – so the whole body is super-breathable, windproof Schoeller fabric to keep you dry and ventilated when you’re working hard, but the shoulders are a waterproof, semi-breathable laminate fabric to keep you dry and warm when it’s raining lightly or spitting sticky, early/late-season snow. The “sidwinder” name comes from the S-bend in the zipper which keeps the soft-lined collar on your chin and the rubbery, waterproof zipper off it.

    $119.95 – Castelli Greg Windproof Cycling Jacket, 60% Off

    Castelli Greg men's cycling jacket saleMy favorite softshell jacket yet for winter sports is actually a Castelli cycling jacket from several years ago. The fit and light weight of the Castelli jacket is better for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and (of course) cycling than most of the downhill skiing alternatives I’ve tried.

    That being said, the Castelli Greg cycling jacket is a big improvement on my old favorite, plus it’s 60% off at Sierra Trading Post right now. It’s hard to beat the Windstopper membrane and stretchy fleece panels for breathable winter sportswear.
