Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals on Gear

Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) is upon us, and that means it's a great time to grab any outdoor gear you might need. I've compiled a list of a few good Canadian stores that offer free (or cheap) shipping and have deals going. Personally, I've ordered from Live Out There before and got a deal on an Outdoor Research hard shell jacket which has been great. I haven't ordered from the other two stores, but they are respected brands. 

1) Live Out There. LiveOutThere.com stocks a lot of great outdoor brands including North Face, Arc'teryx, Patagonia and many more. There is free shipping within Canada and free returns. Also, since they are based in Alberta, tax is only 5%. For Black Friday everything in the store is up to 50% off. See the deals here.

2) Columbia Sportswear Canada. Columbia has a great reputation for winter coats and gear. Shipping is a flat $7 within Canada, and they have 50% off of select gear for Black Friday. See the deals here.

3) Under Armour. UA makes great athletic wear, and I've found a lot of their baselayers perfect for days in the snow. They are offering 25% off select thermals, baselayers and more, with free shipping on orders over $49. See the deals here.

All deals are currently live.

Hiking Mount Elsay

We posted a new hiking guide for Mount Elsay in Mount Seymour Provincial Park. Mount Elsay is a challenging hike and makes a great adventure for experienced hikers looking to get well off the beaten path.  

The only problem is the trail isn't suitable for hiking with all the recent snow - so make sure you put it on your list for next summer!

Check out the guide here:

Until next month!
