Cyber Monday Outdoor Gear Deals in Canada


The Black Friday shopping weekend has almost come to an end but first there is my favourite sale – Cyber Monday! I hardly shop at brick and mortar stores anymore so I’m not about to fight through crowds and lineups to save a few bucks. Instead I spent Black Friday on the trails with friends.

I do, however, have a list of a few things I need to buy. This morning I am sitting down at my computer in my pyjamas with a cup of hot coffee to see what the internet has to offer. As a Vancouver trail runner with rugged mountains practically in my backyard and a rainy climate, I have forked out some serious dough on equipment. These sales present a great opportunity to splurge on outdoor gear.

I’ve put together a short list of my essentials for getting outside – no matter what the weather!

Arc’teryx Norvan Jacket

20% off at Altitude-Sports.com

The Arc’teryx Norvan Jacket is a lightweight, Gortex jacket perfect for rainy winter running the trails. I wear the regular model but there is also an SL version that is incredibly light and small, but unfortunately not as durable.

Arc'teryx Cerium LT Hoody Altra Running Lone Peak Neoshells

Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hoody

20% off at Altitude-Sports.com and select colours 45% off (final sale) at TheLastHunt.com

The Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hoody is my absolute favourite jacket. I wear it to and from my runs to stay warm and will sometimes carry it with me. It is super light and packs up small enough to fit in my 12 L hydration pack. Although definitely not waterproof, it is water resistant and will withstand a drizzle.

Altra Running Shoes

30% off at Altitude-Sports.com and up to 60% off at AltraRunning.ca

I run exclusively in Altra Running shoes. They are a zero drop runner and have a foot-shape toe box, which means there’s extra width in the toe box for your toes to naturally splay. The Lone Peaks are an excellent trail runner with medium cushioning and great traction. They even come in a water resistant Neoshell version.

I'm in the front wearing my TransAlpine Buff. Kyle is behind me rocking his orange and yellow Buff hat.

Buff Original

30% off at Altitude-Sports.com

Buffs are multifunction headwear that can be worn many different ways. I have about a dozen of these in a variety of patterns and colours and never leave home without one. I typically wear them as a headband or a wristband to soak up sweat on my runs. Use them in the winter to keep your face and neck warm or in the summer to dunk in a stream and cool off.

What gear can you not live without?

I started running about three years ago. Until this time i had never considered myself a runner and actually hated running. I’m not sure what changed but i’m glad it did! I enjoy sharing my thoughts, training, and experiences through my blog and encouraging and supporting others in their running journeys.

Since becoming a runner, I have completed a handful of half marathons, three full marathons, and four ultra marathons. However, my biggest accomplishments have been running the Rim2Rim2Rim in the Grand Canyon and completing a seven-day, 250km stage race in the Alps. These were adventures of a lifetime and something I had never imagined that I would do even in my wildest dreams!
