We picked out eight of our favorite gear deals to make your search easier. Grab them while you still can.
Vasque Breeze III Mid GTX Hiking Boots
There’s a reason we named this the best all-around hiking boot of 2017. “Our testers pounded miles and mountains all around the Rockies and Southwest and everyone’s trip reports noted the boots’ soft underfoot feel,” we wrote. Buy the Vasque Breeze III Mid GTX Hiking Boots now for $109.83 (39% off).
Leki Micro Vario Carbon Trekking Poles
These flyweight, three-section trekking poles are stronger than they have any right to be. Buy the Leki Micro Vario Carbon Trekking Poles now for 149.93 (25% off).
Marmot PreCip Anorak
“For just a Benjamin, you get a workhorse jacket that holds up in nasty weather, doesn’t skimp on features, and breathes well enough,” we wrote about the original version of this Editors’ Choice-winning shell. And at just 7.5 ounces, this half-zip version is a hair more than half the weight. Buy the Marmot PreCip Anorak now for $44.83 (50% off).
KEEN Terradora Waterproof Mid Hiking Boots
Built with a women-specific last, this boot features a narrower heel to minimize slippage, as well as a wider forefoot for increased toe comfort. Buy the KEEN Terradora Waterproof Mid Hiking Boots now for $69.83 (50% off).
Rab Kinetic Plus Jacket
Our testers had a hard time believing that a softshell this supple would really keep the precip out. But it did: “Through Colorado sleet, early-season Yellowstone snow, high winds in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, and car-wash mist in Colombia, the Kinetic Plus made us believers,” our reviewer wrote. Buy the Rab Kinetic Plus Jacket now for 114.93 (50% off).
Sea to Summit Ultralight Hammock Bundle
You wouldn’t believe a hammock this tissue-thin would hold up. But trust us, it does. Best of all: At 5.4 ounces, you’ll barely be able to tell it’s in your pack. Buy the Sea to Summit Ultralight Hammock Bundle now for $74.93 (40% off).
Chaco Z/1 Classic Sandals
Chaco’s famous Z/1s do more than just let you lounge on the beach. “For almost a decade, the Z/1 served one tester as a true do-it-all shoe: sea kayaking in Baja, backpacking in Arizona, river running in California, and even a wedding in Glacier National Park,” we wrote in our review. That’s why it made it into our Editors’ Choice Hall of Fame. Buy the Chaco Z/1 Classic Sandals now for 51.73% (51% off).
Salomon Speedcross 4 Trail-Running Shoes
If you like to go fast in a wide variety of conditions, the Speedcross 4 may be your shoe. “The breathable, quick-drying nylon upper keeps feet cool and dry on long mileage days, and the deep lugs grip both soft and slippery surfaces,” wrote our reviewer. Buy the Salomon Speedcross 4 now for $77.83 (40% off).
