Summer might be ending, but the Backcountry Labor Day sale, with its droves of discounted down jackets, hiking boots, sleeping bags, and warm layers, is here to remind you that there are plenty of outdoor adventures to be had in the coming seasons. And, if cold weather outings aren’t your thing, the outdoor retailer has lots to offer in terms of past season markdowns too. As we get closer to the long holiday weekend, Labor Day sales will abound. But if you’ve got a passion for the great outdoors, this is one you absolutely do not want to miss. 

From now until Tuesday, September 6, you can refresh your hiking gear collection, stock up for your next camping trip, or just find a high-quality water bottle for cheap at Backcountry’s Labor Day sale. You’ll find items marked down by as much as 70%—and that includes outerwear, tents, trail-running shoes, and more from renowned, expert-approved outdoor brands like the North Face, Patagonia, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear, Osprey, and many more.
