We’re almost at the finish line of holiday shopping—but the last stretch is always the hardest. So we scoured Backcountry.com for their best deals on gear under $50 that can still be delivered in time for Christmas, if you order by December 16. Good luck with the final sprint.
Pendleton Yakima Stripe Sock 2-Pack | $14 (40 percent off)
Based on Pendleton’s iconic blanket designs, these crew socks are inspired by natural landscapes. The hint of nylon keeps them from falling down or scrunching up in your shoe, while the cotton-polyester blend keeps them breathable when your feet heat up. The pair makes a cozy gift for anyone on your list.
Backcountry Flannel Button-Down Shirt | $44-$47 (40 percent off)
This 100 percent cotton flannel is a cozy addition over your favorite tee or under a light jacket. It has a traditional cut, while the variety of colorful patterns gives the classic design a modern update.
NRS Canine Floatation Device | $24 (48 percent off)
Your dog deserves a gift too. This floatation device is designed to help your dog swim in any body of water. The easy-grab handle on the back helps to lift your pup back onto your vessel.
Patagonia Organic Cotton French Terry Pants (Women’s) | $45 (35 percent off)
Comfortable enough to lounge in around the house and stylish enough to wear to après, these sweats will be your go-to pants this winter. The organic cotton features 11 percent spandex so that they move with you whether you’re working out or curling up on the couch.
Outdoor Research Emersion Fleece Crew Sweatshirt | $40 (55 percent off)
Your basic crewneck sweatshirt just got a functional upgrade. We love the zippered pocket, polyester-tencel-spandex blend, and UPF 30 sun protection for outdoor adventures. It’s durable enough to wear around the campfire, but stylish enough to wear out to dinner.
Smartwool Intraknit 200 Gaiter | $36-$40 (20 percent off)
Made with Smartwool’s thermoregulating three-dimensional mapping, this merino wool blend gaiter keeps you warm on the chairlift but breathes as you work up a sweat on the slopes. It naturally wicks away moisture and reduces odor so you can stay comfortable all day.
Stoic Venture Insulated Vest (Men’s) | $47 (40 percent off)
This polyester ripstop vest adds a thin layer of warmth thanks to 140 grams of synthetic fill, great for wearing over a midlayer in variable conditions. A two-way zipper makes it easy to ventilate however you choose.
The North Face ThermoBall Traction Mule V Bootie | $41 (30 percent off)
These slip-on, water-resistant booties are insulated with synthetic PrimaLoft ThermoBall Eco fill to keep your toes warm at a backcountry hut, the trailhead, or around camp. The grippy rubber soles help prevent slipping on wet or icy surfaces, and the elastic opening hugs your foot to keep snow and dirt out.
