In the final hurrah for the end of Winter, Backcountry is discounting a huge number of products. The list ranges from high-end down and synthetic jackets to backpacking packs, tents, sleeping bags, and more. There are literally too many products to list — but our staff hunted for our favorite gear, and found a lot of it on serious sale.
See the epic Backcountry Winter Clearance deals below.
Patagonia Synchilla Lightweight Snap-T Fleece Pullover – $59.99 (50% Off)
The Patagonia Synchilla Lightweight Snap-T Fleece is a classic pullover that combines cozy warmth with versatility. It helped to launch the wave of fleece jackets back in the day, and is perfect for lounging around the ski-lodge, cooking near the campfire, or trekking through a chilly city.
The Synchilla Lightweight uses 86% recycled lightweight Sychilla fleece — unique to Patagonia — which is the exact texture you imagine when dreaming of a cozy fleece. It has a single chest pocket, three buttons to fend off the cold, and a casual fit.
We don’t recommend this for ultralight or long-distance backpacking, but it has won our Classic Pick award for Car Camping.See the Women’s Patagonia Synchilla Lightweight Snap-T See the Men’s Patagonia Synchilla Lightweight Snap-T
Gregory Maven and Paragon 65L Backpack – $109.99 (56% Off)
The Gregory Maven (women’s) and Paragon (men’s) line of backpacks is all about function and weight. Unlike some of Gregory’s burlier backpacks, the Maven uses lightweight materials and streamlined features to come in under 3.5 pounds.
The hip belt and pack panel are adjustable to dial in fit, it uses an Aerolon aluminum frame for support, and there’s plenty of EVA foam on the shoulder straps. It has streamlined mesh water bottle pockets and an external mesh stuff sack, useful side and top compression, and plenty of room in the interior.
If you’re looking for an all-around excellent backpacking pack that isn’t cumbersome, and can still carry a decent load, check out the Gregory Maven and Paragon. At this price, we can’t imagine something better.See the Women’s Gregory Maven Backpack See the Men’s Gregory Paragon Backpack
Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hooded Down – $244.99 (35% Off)
The Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hooded Down jacket is a premier, expensive puffy. The cost is justified in features, which is why we’re excited it’s on sale.
The Cerium LT uses 850-fill goose down in most of the coat, and Coreloft insulation at the wrists, neck, and shoulders to help fend off wet environments. It’s a crazy lightweight puffy, too, at around 11 ounces. The whole thing compresses into the included stuff sack, and has two hand-zippered pockets that keep your frigid fingers toasty with down.
We have consistently awarded the Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hooded Down jacket our Premium Pick award, and think if you can afford it, you’ll be wildly stoked on the purchase.See the Men’s Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hooded Down See the Women's Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hooded Down
Marmot Minimalist Jacket – $110.99 (41% Off)
The Marmot Minimalist rain jacket is a classic. It uses Gore-Tex Paclite, which is now made of 100% recycled polyester, for a 2.5-layer rain jacket. This means decent breathability, and excellent waterproofing.
The Minimalist, as the name implies, has a few key features. There are pit vents for dumping heat, a water-resistant chest zipper, and a sub-one-pound weight. We reviewed and awarded the Marmot Minimalist, and found it to be an excellent all-around rain jacket for hiking and backpacking.See the Men’s Marmot Minimalist Rain Jacket See the Women’s Marmot Minimalist Rain Jacket
Backcountry Timpanogos Tech Fleece Hoodie – $77.97 (40% Off)
The Backcountry Timpanogos Tech Fleece Hoodie was made to keep you warm while on the move. It uses a stretch-heavy fleece material that’s made of nylon, polyester, and spandex, perfect for climbing or other high output activities.
The Timpanogos has smartly designed thumb loops for easy layering and warmth, and brushed liners in the zippered pockets. It’s very slim fitting for layering, but can be worn as an outer layer if you’re trekking quickly. A solid mix of cozy yet technical fleece for the price!See the Men's Backcountry Timpanogos Tech Fleece Hoodie See the Women's Backcountry Timpanogos Tech Fleece Hoodie
Stanley Classic Legendary Bottle – $29.99 (40% Off)
The Stanley Classic Legendary Bottle is, as the name implies, a legend. This is one of the original camping thermoses, and it maintains its presence around a campfire year after year.
We love this thermos because it comes with a lid that doubles as a cup, it will keep you liquid hot or cold for more than a full day, and it’s way more durable than most stainless steel insulated products.
Too heavy and big for backpacking, the Stanley Classic Legendary Bottle is perfect for car campers. In fact, we awarded it just for that.See the Stanley Classic Legendary Bottle
Patagonia Cotton Quilt Snap T Fleece – $94.99 (36% Off)
Patagonia makes a wide range of excellent fleece, and the Cotton Snap T is one of the comfiest. It’s not meant for the summit or ultralight hut trip — the Cotton Snap T is a stylish retro pullover that keeps you fairly warm. It’ll work for any camping trip or luxury backpacking, but blends right into city life as well.
Patagonia mixes organic cotton with polyester to create the Snap T Fleece, and there’s a single chest pocket. The piece is coated with DRW to repele light rain, too.See the Women’s Patagonia Cotton Snap T See the Men’s Patagonia Cotton Snap T
Marmot Phase 20 Sleeping Bag – $274.99 (40% Off)
High-end down sleeping bags are typically worth their cost in warmth and weight. The Marmot Phase 20 lives up to expectations at full price, and is seriously discounted in this sale.
It’s an 850-fill down bag that weighs just under 1.5 pounds. That’s quite light, especially as it’s rated to 20 degrees (for men). It has a full length, two-way zipper for ventilation, a Pertex 10D nylon ripstop fabric, and curved baffles. The nautilus-style hood is meant to really lock in warmth, and this bag is best suited for someone who loves to sleep like a mummy.
We rarely see such high-end bags go on sale like this, so if you’ve been eyeing one, consider the Marmot Phase 20.See the Men’s Marmot Phase 20 Sleeping Bag See the Women’s Marmot Phase 20 Sleeping Bag
Backcountry Cottonwoods Gore-Tex Jacket -$279.97 (30% Off)
The Backcountry Cottonwoods is a ski-ready jacket made with all the bells and whistles, including best-in-class 3-layer Gore-Tex waterproofing. Backcountry took nods from its Gearhead community, which knows a thing or two about gear, to design an impressive jacket.
The Cottonwoods has 7 watertight zippered pockets for storing anything you’d need on the slopes, including an arm-sleeve for your lift pass. There’s an internal powder skirt if you’re deep in snow, soft hand-cuffs with thumb-hole loops, and four elastic pulls to lock in heat. Two extra-large pit zips release that heat if you need to — and the whole jacket is made of a burly nylon.
If you need a ski jacket that performs, this is it.See the Women’s Backcountry Cottonwoods Gore-Tex Jacket See the Men’s Backcountry Cottonwoods Gore-Tex Jacket
Black Diamond FineLine Rain Shell – $97.86 (27% Off)
Black Diamond knows a thing or two about alpine environments. The company designed a lightweight, yet fully protective rain jacket — the FineLine Rain Shell — to work as well at the summit as it does in town.
The FineLine Rain Shell uses a 2.5-layer waterproof membrane for decent breathability and waterproof protection, and a shell fabric that is surprisingly stretchy. The four-way stretch allows you to hike, backpack, and run with ease, even if the weather is temperamental. This, plus a single zippered chest pocket and adjustable hood, hem, and cuffs, make the FineLine a minimal yet functional barrier against rain and wind.
If you’ve been looking for a slim-fitting, low-profile rain jacket, the FineLine may be it.See the Men’s Black Diamond FineLine Rain Shell
