HikerDeals Bargain, Deal, and Sale Archive for November, 2007
This sale is great for all those boots, sleeping bags, tents and other big-ticket items you’ve been waiting to buy – it’s all at least 50% off retail prices. Plus, since the items are on sale and it’s not a coupon, you can still use the November coupon for free shipping on all orders of $75+ (expires December 4, 2007). All links in this post apply the coupon, will show up in your cart once total gets to $75 or more.
It’s softshell+waterproof from the Spraymaster shell. From Patagonia, this shell is a fully waterproof, breathable jacket made completely with stretch shell fabric. That gives it a lot of extra flexibility and a trimmer fit than normal waterproof shells and gets it pretty close to most soft shells. Of course, soft shells have nothing on it in terms of protection in wet and nasty weather and few can match its 10.5-ounce weight.
Just $124.50, half-off, at Patagonia’s own store: patagonia.com.
Stock up on food or grab toys and gifts for yours or friends’ pets with this one. Apply the coupon at checkout by entering coupon code afflly15 (expires December 26, 2007).
If you’re a big guy, grab this 45% off soft shell from The North Face. The Apex Relativity jacket uses TNF’s super-breathable Apex fabric and a light, fleeced insulation to keep you comfortable. Both hand and chest pockets make it a great shell for the slopes and nasty winter camping days. On sale for $125.92 at 45% off, but only available in size XL.
From BackcountryOutlet.com you also score free shippng on all orders of $50+ and now sales tax if it’s shipped outside of Utah.
The Therm-a-Rest ToughSkin sleeping pad matches lightweight construction with a puncture-resistant skin. It’s only 26 ounces but the skin stops 95% of thorn-related punctures and sharp rocks too.
Regularly $100 the pad is 45% off, just $54.83, at REI.com. No direct-links to REI deals … search for the item number to go straight to it, Item # 748275.
The November coupon for Sierra Trading Post is out. Actually it has been for over a week, but I had a vacation and got sick in the middle there.
It’s not a great coupon, just free shipping on $75 an up orders. Combined with their current 20% off outerwear and outdoor gear sale – it’s a big bargain on shells, down jackets, and winter sleeping bags. Perfect for prepping for winter camping trips, long tailgate mornings before football games, and holiday gifts.
The REI winter sale is on now. This season the sale looks good, really good. Maybe it’s the competition with Backcountry.com and Altrec – but none of those shops normally mark down new-season clothes and skis by 25-30% this close to the holidays. These SmartWool scarves are a great example (no direct links to REI items … search for the item numbers to find the scarves).
Both are 25% off. The Sport Stripe in the top picture up there is $29.99, down from $40 – search for item # 755625. The Fair Isle scarves are in the lower picture and just $35.99, down from $48 – search for item # 755622.
Waterproof, breathable shells keep getting lighter and more breathable. The one good thing about new fabrics like GoreTex Proshell is that the older fabrics don’t get any worse – but they do get cheaper. And, since Proshell is more about durability than lightness, other shells definitely are bargains at some of these closeout prices.
On sale now is a 2.5 layer HyVent shell from The North Face. This Prophecy jacket weighs just 10.7 ounces with full seam sealing and pit zips (in my opinion – so much better than chest or back vents). Currently available in Large and XL sizes at Altrec.com, with free shipping.
It’s hard to pronounce but the Fi’zi:k Nisene CP MG Wingflex bike saddle is soft on the tail. It’s a mountain bike saddle shaped like the popular Arione, but with a load of extra padding and scuff guards. It’s light but not ultralight, at 285 grams, but the WingFlex technology saves your tail from pressure and is more efficient even if it’s not lighter. Normally $98, the saddle is half-off, just $49.01, and will ship free from Backcountry Outlet if you can get the order total over $50.
