UPDATED: Definitive Black Friday Sales Guide for Backpackers (2021)

The best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for backpackers are already live with more in the works for the coming week.

Most (nearly all) the gear most-loved by Pacific Crest Trail and Continental Divide Trail hikers as reported in the yearly PCT Gear Survey and CDT Gear Survey is available at what's likely the steepest discount you'll find all year (if you're buying new). If you've got plans for the outdoors in 2022, now's a great time to get your kit sorted without paying retail (the worst amount to pay).

Let me know in the comments if you have any questions, and don't forget to use the links in this post to support Halfway Anywhere!

My only complaint is that eventually, backflushing won’t be enough. These can clog up after some time and no amount of back flushing will fix its low flow. I went through 2 on the AT. However, it will attach to Smart Water Bottles and most bladders!

Built for backcountry reliability and portability, the Sawyer Squeeze filter is our pick for the best portable water purifier.

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).
