Base Layers

Smartwool Merino 250 | Up to 50% Off

  • Reg. $110 (Bottoms 30% Off; Reg. $100)
  • 100% Merino Wool

Merino wool is soft against the skin (not itchy like wool from the days of yore) and helps keep you warm when wet from rain, snow, or sweat. That makes it ideal for a next-to-skin layer at camp and on-trail.

Smartwool IntraKnit Merino 200 Base Layers | Up to 39% Off

  • Reg. $120
  • 53% Merino Wool

Smartwool’s IntraKnit baselayers use a blended fabric that includes polyester and elastane alongside merino wool. This garment has all the warmth of merino wool but is stretchier and more breathable for use during heavy activity.

  • Reg. $109.95
  • 91% Merino Wool

Backcountry’s in-house merino base layers provide all the warmth and functionality of premium merino wool at a steep discount during the Backcountry Cyber Sale. And the quarter-zip front adds a touch of temperature control that standard crewneck tops lack.

Keen Targhee III Waterproof Hiking Shoe | Up to 30% Off

backcountry cyber sale

  • Reg. $139.95

If you need a bit more stability and protection in your footwear, the somewhat beefier Keen Targhee III might appeal. It’s not heavy like a boot, but it does offer a little more support than ultralight trail runners. We’re not always advocates of waterproof footwear, but this feature can provide extra warmth and protection from snowmelt and shallow puddles in winter and early spring.


Smartwool Hike Medium Crew Sock | 20% Off

  • Reg. $19.95
