Whether you're looking to get some holiday shopping done, or just need to upgrade your gear stash, a web site to watch is SteepandCheap.com. Much like Woot! and other bargain sites, SteepandCheap offers daily deals on outdoor apparel and gear, with products available at discounted prices until their stock runs out (which can be quick, so act fast if you see something you want). Today they've had Stoic jackets -- Backcountry.com's new house brand -- and a camping set of dishes and utensils, but tomorrow could mean anything from Mountain Hardwear shirts to hi-tech ear buds, perfect for running.
