Note that membership is required, but only costs $20. The coupon does have some exclusions (like all REI coupons) which unfortunately include bikes, boats, GPS receivers, sale items, skis, & snowboards. Once you’re a member though you’ll get 10% cash back on those items at the end of the year.
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.
Happy Holidays. REI’s Holiday Clearance Sale starts today, the 25th.

Shells, down bags and jackets, softshells, packs … it’s all $15 less at MountainGear.com.
Click the links to apply a coupon for $15 off any order of $75 or more (expires December 10, 2007). Offer excludes items from The North Face, Burton, Suunto, Scarpa, and Oakley.
The sale includes all the winter gear, shells, tents, sleeping bags, packs, and climbing equipment you’ve been drooling over but couldn’t quite afford … except for the following slightly long list of brands: Libtech, Gnu, Roxy Hardgoods, Merrell, 32, Yakima, Nixon, Forum, Burton, Anon, Red, Analog, Gravis, Suunto, The North Face, Arcteryx, Bugaboo, Western, and Patagonia (though coupon code 921 gets you 20% off any Patagonia gear). You still score free shipping on all orders of $29+ and no sales tax outside of Illinois and Michigan.
It’s only good for a few days, but this 40% off coupon at Backcountry Outlet is one of the best deals so far this year. The timing is good too, there’s a lot of end-of-season boots, shells, backpacks, and sleeping bags in BackcountryOutlet.com now.
EDIT: This coupon increases the discount on items up to 40% off the original price. It does not take an additional 40% off anything that’s already discounted.
To use, just enter redemption code 1XT-1-STYTK at checkout, good through October 16th. Free shipping on orders of $50+ (after discount) and no sales tax outside of Utah still apply.
The Katadyn ceramic microfilter has some of the best filtration (reported as 0.2 microns) and is one of the most durable filter cartridges (7,000 liters) on the market. Like all ceramic filters, however, the replacement elements usually cost about as much as a brand-new fiber-based filter and cartridge.
Not right now, with the ceramic replacement filter on sale at Altrec.com for about 30% off, just $34.97. Plus, no sales tax outside of Washington state and free shipping if you can get the order over $45 with another item or two.
The REI Labor Day sale starts in about an hour. As they make space for skis and snowboards, grab summer camping gear and outdoor clothing at big discounts – looks like most items are 15-25% off. Add in the 10% rebate for REI members and that’s a pretty good deal on current-year camping equipment. Sale lasts until September 3rd.
With plenty of boots companies getting into the climbing shoe game preices have been falling steadily for several years. Even better is that great climbing shoes like this Montrail Orbit end up at bargain prices during closeout sales. From Mountain Gear.com the Orbit gets to take advantage of Montrail’s heat-moldable boot technology to make it a super-comfortable all-day shoe. Normally asymmetric (ie: very curved) shoes like this are really uncomfortable for long periods of time, expecially because they never really break-in with all the rubber wrapped around your foot. Not the case with these, just read the MGear reviews.
Aside from being a top-quality shoe, these Montail Orbits are 53% off and available in euro sizes 37.5 – 40.5 (about a US women’s 7 – 10, or US men’s 5½ – 8½).
A big coupon for Eastern Mountain Sports right now: get 20% off your most expensive item and 15% off each of the next two. Click any of the links to auto-apply the coupon and the discount will be taken at checkout.
EMS.com is a smaller-than-REI, outdoor gear chain with good service. They have major brands and good self-branded gear for hiking, backpacking, climbing, cycling, and other outdoor sports.
Brands excluded from the discount are Merrell, Patagonia, and Necky. Already on-sale items are also excluded. Coupon expires July 4, 2007.
Get 15% off Backcountry.com’s hiking, camping, and backpacking gear and clothes for the next day-and-a-half. Use coupon code: 1L3-1-63VLV at checkout (expires 5/30/2007). Sale orders are still eligible for free shipping if they’re $50 or more.
*There are some restrictions on the coupon though, some brands and already-on-sale gear may not be eligible for the extra 15% off.

Sierra Trading Post is having a BarnBurner sale this weekend. All items on sale are discounted at least 50% for just 1-2 days at a time, with new items getting added each day.
My top pick in the clearance today is the Gregory Nano backpack. This pack is part of Gregory’s “All Terrain” series, so despite it’s daypack appearance it has a sturdy harness and light frame for better comfort and load support. With the trim, 1,000 cubic-inch profile it will make a great climber’s or skier’s pack (though you’re going to have to be creative in carrying skis with this thing, not many straps on the outside to attach them to). Even better though is that it will make a great daypack for kids who want to carry some of their own gear, or even a weekend pack for smaller children not yet ready to lug their own sleeping bag and part of the tent.
Making the pack even better is the $29.70 price, it’s normally $99. Also if you’re in a gear shopping mood and want to add a few more items to your order this link is the: Sierra Trading Post free shipping on $100+ coupon, coupon applied to cart when total is over $100 (NOTE: only this link in the message is a coupon and it doesn’t link straight to the Nano pack, so you’ll have to use this link & then search for “nano” if you want the coupon and the pack).
What does every experienced camper have 10 of, but still needs more? Wide-mouth, lexan Nalgene bottles (no direct-links at REI.com, so search for item #402065 for gray lexan or item #664604 for colors).
So why are these water bottles, normally $8+, far better than sliced bread when you’re camping? Even at this sale price of $5.49?
It’s not just because the loop top makes for easy carrying and the lexan material can stand ridiculous abuse without breaking (I have broken a couple of these though, one when it fell 90 feet on to a hard sandstone landing, while climbing. Another broke when it had frozen overnight and I tossed it only 10 feet, to a sunny spot so it could melt while I cooked – apparently ice and extreme cold aren’t friendly to lexan). The real reason you just HAVE to carry at least one wide-mouth Nalgene bottle on any camping trip is because every water bottle on the market seems to have a slightly different-sized opening, but Nalgene’s is the standard that all other cooking and water equipment attaches to.
For example, most water filters either screw directly to the top of a wide-mouth Nalgene, like the MSR ceramic water filters, or they have a cheap (as in less than $5) adapter that fits onto the top, like the Katadyn Guide water filter that my wife and I own two of (pre-marriage camping gear, I may write Hiker Deals but I’m not that much of a gearhead to keep a spare water filter). Also, some cooking accessories are sized just for the wide-mouth Nalgene bottles too, like the Press-Bot coffee press.
Since you need them anyway, scoop up a few of these wide-mouth Nalgene bottles while they’re just $5.49. And since there aren’t direct-links to REI.com products allowed, search for item #402065 for gray lexan or item #664604 for colors.
