The Best Discount Outdoor Gear In This Year’s Black Friday Sales

Our Black Friday / Cyber Monday curated list features our favorite discount outdoor gear for camping, running, backpacking, and active lifestyles. Keep checking back as we add new deals on the best gear we've been recommending this year!

All opinions are our own and never influenced by brands. If you buy through links on this page, we may earn a small commission. Here's our process.

‘Tis always the season for gifting in our opinion, but November is the time when most people begin thinking about buying outdoor gear as gifts for their loved ones (or themselves).

ADVERTISEMENTOn Running sale

The reasoning is simple, It’s the time when discounted outdoor gear becomes more accessible to a wider audience of outdoor enthusiasts, thanks to the annual Black Friday sales where some brands offer great deals, like up to 50% off full-price products.

This is awesome for those who enjoy spending time outdoors camping, hiking, running, or just generally love being in nature because let’s face it, outdoor gear tends to be expensive (for the best new gear at least).

Our curated list features only highly-rated outdoor adventure, and active lifestyle discounted gear because here at Trail and Kale, we don’t waste our (or your) time on anything but the best gear that performs well, and lasts the test of time.

We’ve highlighted some particularly outstanding deals below. To see the full list, continue reading!

On a side note, we have personally been using this discount outdoor gear throughout the year, which is one of the reasons why we are able to stand behind our recommendations with such integrity; the same goes for all our gift lists and outdoor gear buying guides too.

We believe that gifts should be as sustainably manufactured as possible, or at the very least be extremely high quality, durable, and provide bountiful value so that they will be in your gear arsenal for years to come, and therefore minimize waste.

This Black Friday discount outdoor gear list includes the very best camping gear, running shoes & apparel, hiking accessories & clothing, fitness gear, and active lifestyle gear.

Keep checking back over the coming days as we introduce new Black Friday outdoor and active lifestyle deals that you won’t want to miss. Remember, these are Black Friday Deals and therefore won’t be around for long, so act fast if you see any discounted outdoor gear that catches your eye!


The discount outdoor gear that grabbed our attention in this year’s Black Friday sales

Lululemon Blissfeel running shoes

lululemon Blissfeel women’s running shoes for $99 $148

[Valid through November 27, 2022 / while stocks last]

THE STEAL: lululemon rarely sells their latest gear at less than MSRP, so their Black Friday specials like this shoe ‘steal’ and offerings for Cyber Monday (11/28) are one of the only times you can score gear at these prices!

This running shoe is specifically designed for the female foot, weight distribution, and running style of female runners, based on research including more than one million scans of women’s feet and analysis of running mechanics.

It’s also a great shoe to wear for everyday, especially with the great selection of color options available! Because the shoes (like lululemon apparel) come in limited edition colors, if you have a particular color in mind, it’s best to pick it up in your size before it sells out.

To learn more about these lululemon running shoes visit our lululemon shoes buyer’s guide where we’ve ranked and reviewed all the women’s lululemon shoe styles.

As lululemon leggings are also included in this Black Friday special, you may also be interested to learn about the different types of lululemon running leggings, too!

Caldera Lab Black Friday alt 2

Caldera + Lab Men’s Skin Care [30% Off]

[Valid through November 28, 2022]

THE DEAL: 30% off with code BLACK FRIDAY‘.

If you spend a lot of time outside in the elements, like I do, then I recommend you check out Caldera + Lab – a premium vegan organic skincare company with a difference.

I never realized I needed these products until I tried their flagship product ‘The Good’ for 30 days. I’m still using their products 2 years later and it’s just as well with all the outdoor adventures and exposure to the elements that I put my skin through.

I use their full 3 stage regimen daily which consists of a facial cleanser, moisturizer, and multifunctional serum, and swear by it for keeping my skin in good condition which I believe to be essential with all the outdoor sports I do.

Their eye serum is also the only one I’ve discovered that actually seems to work, and that doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.

To learn more about Caldera Lab’s The Good, and The Eyecon eye serum read my in-depth Calder Lab review of my 30-day testing period as an outdoorsy person who needs to take care of my skin.

We love discount camping gear, and BioLite (one of our favorite outdoor brands) sells almost all the gear that could be considered essential when camping.

We absolutely love these USB-chargeable camping lanterns from Biolite. They’re available in small and large sizes (250 or 500-lumen output), and are just as useful at home as when out camping – or as emergency lighting in the event of a power outage. 

These lanterns deliver both ambient and task-based lighting, offering warm, natural light and a variety of colors and features, such as a relaxing candle flicker mode that you activate by simply shaking the lantern.

The 250 is small enough to stash in a backpack for backpacking, travel, and camping trips, and would make a great gift for kids as well as someone who loves to travel! For all those reasons, they also rank #1 in our best camping lanterns buyer’s guide.

Biolite’s fire pits are also discounted right now with up to 30% off, including the incredibly awesome FirePit+ Smokeless Fire pit.

As your back is strained from the countless outdoor activities you do (or from sitting at a desk working during the day), those muscles lock up and cause even more pain.

The GoChirp Wheel massages those muscles, relaxing your back and relieving all of the pain.

This is my favorite recovery tool right now, I get a lot of relief and satisfaction out of rolling on my Chirp Wheel to relieve clicks, knots, and tension in my back!

rumpl printed nanoloft 1 person blanket alt with stuff sack

RUMPL Puffy Blankets [25% Off]

THE DEAL: 25% Off Sitewide, which means certain styles are under $75 with the discount! Only at rumpl.com

We love our Rumpl puffy blankets, they’re super warm and come in a great range of colors and design options. There’s even a Rumpl blanket that’s flame-resistant!

They’re not only great for camping, vanlife and colder winter evenings outdoors, but they’re also great for winter sofa snuggles or to add the extra layer of warmth you make need on those cold winter nights at home!

The Original Rumpl blankets are ideal if you have pets as hair and fur doesn’t cling to them, it just shakes off, and they’re easy to wash when you need to freshen them up. Thank goodness because our dog Kepler is a hairy little rascal of a Border Collie, haha.

You can choose from single or double sizes, and between synthetic and down-fill options. In our opinion these puffy blankets also make great holiday gifts for the outdoor lover in your life.

They also made it onto our gift guide for outdoor lovers and our cool camping gear gift guide – two gift lists that you totally need to check out this season!


randolph aviator blue lens

Randolph Sunglasses [Up To 40% Off]

THE DEAL: Up to a huge 40% OFF select styles of aviator sunglasses, handcrafted in the USA at RandolphUSA.com.

I love that you can fully customize all of Randolph’s handcrafted sunglasses, right down to the materials, lenses, and arms used.

The scratch-resistant lenses are made from mineral glass (for the clearest vision) and are UVA and UVB protected which is very important if you’re going to be out for day hikes.

They also have anti-reflective backside coating too, which I love! This essentially means that you don’t get any distracting reflections from behind you while driving or hiking on the trails.

If you’re not already familiar with Randolph, the company was founded in 1973 and is now the only remaining metal eyewear company in the USA (read more about Randolph in some of our Randolph reviews).

It’s so nice to see these premium high-quality sunglasses still being made in the USA when so many other brands have chosen to take the work elsewhere.

I wear my Randolph Aviator sunglasses all the time here in California while hiking and running errands around town. To learn more about all the various styles available, click the link below – we also have some reviews that we wrote below.

The REI Outlet and Used outdoor gear websites may have the discounted outdoor gear you’re after

If you didn’t find the gear you’re looking for in our list of outdoor Black Friday deals for this year, it’s worth checking our post that features our favorite cheap outdoor gear websites that offer year-round discounted outdoor gear. These websites are able to offer discounted outdoor gear in 3 ways: used outdoor gear, trade-in, or clearance sales.

For example, one of the largest online camping gear stores (and our favorite), REI, does not have an REI Black Friday sale as they choose to #optOutside instead.

However, REI does offer other annual sales and ways for you to get year-round cheap camping gear. For example, there are the ‘REI outlet’ and ‘REI Used outdoor gear’ websites.

The difference between the two is that the REI Outlet sells end-of-season new gear, rather than used gear, and this is covered by REI’s normal 100% satisfaction guarantee – so you can pick up a good deal at the REI Outlet, but it’s more focused on the seasonal sale and end-of-line items.

REI’s used gear site on the other hand is, well, as the name suggests, ‘used gear’ that REI has cleaned up to make look almost new – this includes used equipment too, not just apparel and shoes.
