I encourage you to #OptOutside on Black Friday to avoid the crowds who will be piling into stores all day long—and because you have the day off to play. But I also know this week is a great time to save money on outdoor gifts, so I’ve gone through Amazon and tracked some of the deals that are already posted. Note: Some of these deals change daily, but others will stick around or come back.

POC used aramid fibers to make this helmet light but strong. It’s a great all-around lid that can be used inbounds or in the backcountry.

CamelBak designed this 11-liter pack so it can carry an extra layer, a helmet, tools, and lunch but still hug your back so it’s not sloshing around on the trail.
