The Best Labor Day Deals on Tech, Tools, Outdoor Gear, and More
Great savings for the long weekend have already begun. Here’s our list on where to start.
You probably prefer to spend Labor Day weekend on an outdoor adventure or grilling with family, but it’s also one of the best holidays of the year to score great deals on things like outdoor gear, home appliances, electronics, tools, and more. We found some of the best sales that you can start shopping now, so you can get back to spending the weekend planning a barbeque, camping trip, day hike, or just some home renovation projects.
Amazon may always have an overwhelming amount of sales for you to take advantage of, but you can start shopping by category, including home and kitchen, electronics, office, lawn and garden, tools and home improvement, and more now.
Take up to 50 percent off outdoor gear and apparel from Backcountry, including 30 percent off The North Face, 35 percent off Black Diamond, 35 percent off Salomon, and more.
For Labor Day, Best Buy is having a huge Appliance Sale through September 16. But in addition to home appliances, you can also save on other tech like Samsung smart TVs, computers, smartphones, headphones, and more.

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
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).
