Explore the great outdoors before permafrost sets in but only after exploring these early Black Friday outdoor deals on Amazon.

The snow is already settling in across some parts of the country. Most, however, can still get in a well-equipped camping trip before the end of peak foliage and the beginning of Black Friday—its own form of roughing it—with these outdoor recreation deals on Amazon.

Bring the creature comforts of your kitchen to the great outdoors with the Camp Chef Explorer camp stove, on sale $99.98, down from its $149.99 regular price. It comes with a three-foot hose and regulator to hook up to a propane tank, and packs 30,000 British Thermal Units (BTU) of power. Detachable steel legs and a three-sided windscreen allow you to cook anywhere and in most weather conditions. And, this stove is compatible with most 14-inch Camp Chef accessories to explore everything the outdoor cooking world has to offer.

You can also head to the lake before it’s too cold for some kayak water adventures. This ADVANCED ELEMENTS StraitEdge2 Pro Inflatable Kayak is on sale for $798.30, 33% off its $1,199 regular price. The lightweight, two-seater kayak includes drop-stitch technology in the floor for tracking, rigidity, and hull speed. And, it’s easy to use: simply unfold, inflate, and attach the seats. Velcro paddle holders keep them from getting away from you, and adjustable padded lumbar seats let you paddle comfortably all day. Simply pack it away in its included backpack when you’re done using it.

When you’re finished with your aquatic promenade, cozy up in this ALPS Mountaineering Camp Creek 4-Person Tent, which is $166.90, 44% off from $299.99. A tall center and straight sides give room for more cots and allow you to stand up in the tent.

If you’ve retired camping for the season but still want an outdoor adventure, prep for turkey making with this frying kit that’s $80—half-off from $149.28—for getting your bird extra crispy this Thanksgiving.

Here are more camping essentials on sale, including backpacks, flashlights, folding chairs, and more. Find the full article here.

While DEET products may be more familiar by name and their chemical smell, sprays with 20 percent picaridin, like Sawyer Products, offer comparable protection without the harsh odor and oily feeling on your skin.

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).

SAWYER MINI WATER FILTER, $22 This has been my water filter of choice for years now. The bags can be iffy — I have had a few break – so carry a couple. However, the filter itself is reliable, light and inexpensive. -Logan
