Garmin fenix 6S Sapphire | 38% Off
Now $499 | Reg. $799

A GPS navigation device, heart rate monitor, pulse oximeter, smart app interface, and more, all integrated into one easy-to-read 1.3″ watch face. Other Garmin smartwatches are also on sale June 21st – 22nd, including the Forerunner (30% off) and the Instinct (38% off).

ExOfficio Men’s Give-N-Go Boxer Brief | 40% Off
Now $28 | Reg. $47



There’s no overcoming the hiker stink, but these quick-drying, breathable, antimicrobial undies are pretty much the closest you’ll come—which is exactly why ExOfficio Give-N-Go underwear are a thru-hiker favorite.

Marmot PreCip Rain Jacket Men’s / Women’s | 40% Off
Now $60 | Reg. $100

The iconic Marmot PreCip is a thru-hiker favorite for a reason. It packs a lot of functionality into an affordable, 10-ounce package complete with pit zips, pockets, and an adjustable brimmed hood. It’s not the lightest or most breathable rain jacket on the planet, but it’s a great all-around backpacking rain jacket at an affordable price (especially while it’s on sale).

Marmot Trestles 15 Women’s Bag | 10% Off
Now $88.20 | Reg. $97.69

Zowee wowee, a 15-degree bag for less than $90? The Marmot Trestles 15  bag is a synthetic-filled mummy bag rated for comfort down to 15 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s a well-made bag at an unbeatable price—the catch is that it weighs 4 pounds, 13 ounces. Still, this is a great starter bag for a newbie backpacker who wants to explore a new hobby without having to sell one of their kidneys to afford it.

Lifestraw Water Filter 2-Pack | 50% Off
Now $20 | Reg. $40

The Lifestraw personal water filtration system filters out most bacteria, parasites, and microplastics. Each straw weighs less than two ounces and can filter up to 4,000 liters of water over its lifetime. Under suction, the flow rate is roughly three liters per minute.

Mountain House Freeze-Dried Backpacking Meals | Up to 20% Off
Now $7.60 | Reg. $9.50

Freeze-dried food is a great option for backpackers: it’s lightweight, simple to prepare, and you can enjoy a variety of meals (because ramen bombs get old fast). Unfortunately, it’s also expensive. Snag select offerings from Mountain House at a 20% discount during the Prime Day Sale. This includes individual pouches (spaghetti and meat sauce only) as well as buckets containing 30 assorted meals and #10 cans (a great option for section hikers or thru-hikers planning to mail themselves resupply boxes).
