When is Black Friday?

In 2021 Black Friday will take place on November 26, and Cyber Monday will follow on November 29. As consumers have come to expect, many retailers will be offering substantial deals on hiking gear that you won't find at any other time of year. Often the best Black Friday hiking deals can be found on so-called "big ticket" items like good quality hiking boots and backpacks – it's here you're likely to see the biggest savings.

When do Black Friday hiking deals begin?

Though it used to just take place over a single day, Black Friday hiking deals now almost always last at least through the following Cyber Monday, and some retailers have stretched it out into a month-long offer. This means that hiking deals can crop up around the start of November or even the end of October. 

How long do Black Friday hiking deals last?

It depends, really. Just as pinning down a start date is tricky, the end point is just as ambiguous. Discounts on hiking gear will be available until the end of Cyber Monday, but some products will only be reduced for a limited time in the form of flash sales. The best advice we have is figure out exactly what you're looking for and keep checking this page regularly for the best Black Friday hiking deals.
