Stupid-hot deals on all of our favorite stuff.

Picture it: You’re drunk-watching House Hunters, shouting at Randy and Carol to go with option two (they’re not gonna use that third bedroom, anyway) when, as always is the case, they go with Option Lame. You’re disappointed, but you gotta give it to them—that $300/month price tag for a 16-bedroom mansion in the mountains isn’t so bad, and that massive outdoor space is pretty sweet. Actually, it’s very sweet, and now you’re thinking What am I doing living in the city? 


Now, before you start looking around at your tiny apartment that costs significantly more per month than that palatial Adirondack adventure home, consider this: You can get out in nature whenever you want! You can take a road trip, hop a train, ride a bus, or hang out on the fire escape to enjoy all of Mother Earth’s splendor from your home base in Big City, USA. (Plus, those country folk don’t even have painted-over wall sockets, indoor rodent “friends,” or leaky radiators! Chumps.)

All kidding aside, you’re probably going to be socializing outdoors more than usual this summer, which is why we put together this nifty lil’ list of some of our favorite Memorial Day deals on outdoor gear. If you’ve been on the fence about that sweet pair of summer shorts or haven’t updated your camping arsenal in a while, now is the time—if you want to save some cash, that is. (You know you’re going to end up buying it one way or another.) 

Oh, and if you’re looking for some more Memorial Day sales, we’ve also got a massive, comprehensive list of virtually everything you could ever want. So, without further ado, here are the best outdoor gear deals for you to get equipped to get outside.
