Smart shoppers know: the best season for buying wintery things falls squarely in the middle of summer, and if Backcountry’s semi-annual sale is any indication, now’s a very good time to shop for a coat, rain jacket, hiking boots, or some fleecy layers before temperatures fall. The sale includes deals on lots and lots of things from outdoor-centric brands like Patagonia, Danner, Marmot, Fjallraven, and Columbia, including running and hiking gear. The up to 50 percent off sale runs through August 22 (so you still have time), but this weekend only you can also take an extra 20 percent off select fleece items. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best items to help you layer up in the months to come.
