The 86 Best Cyber Monday Deals on Outdoor Gear—Backpacks, Bikes, and More

Cyber Monday is traditionally a day when you shop for televisions or Christmas presents, and not so much for outdoor gear. But it's not all TVs and headphones—there are plenty of Cyber Monday outdoor deals. While REI famously “shuns” the weekend's shopping holiday, the retailer still holds a sale immediately beforehand, as well as on Cyber Monday. Other outdoor stores are getting in on the action, too. Now is a great time to save some money on tents, backpacks, sleeping pads, and Garmin devices.

Updated November 27: We've added deals on bike bags and a personal water filter, and updated pricing and availability as Cyber Monday comes to an end.

We test products year-round and handpicked these deals. The discount amounts we show are based on actual street prices at retailers in the past few months. Products that are sold out or no longer discounted as of publishing will be crossed out. We'll update this guide periodically.

Backpack Deals★ Mountainsmith Tour 9L Lumbar Pack for $67 ($22 off)BackcountryBackcountry (13L)

Our favorite lumbar pack, the Tour is loaded with pockets, which gives you far more stash spaces than would seem possible in a pack this size. We've had no trouble fitting a change of clothes and a couple of meals in here, in addition to the gear you'll need for a full day on the trail or on a bike. The 13L version is also on sale for $75 ($25 off).

Mystery Ranch Catalyst 18 for $97 ($42 off) with code MRCYBERMONDAY30Mystery RanchAmazonMoosejaw ($104)

If the other Mystery Ranch packs that are currently on sale are too militaristic for you, this smaller, lighter pack is well worth it. The Catalyst 18 is the standard daypack in Mystery Ranch's lineup, but features the company's three-zip design. That said, all hunting- and outdoor-related gear is 30 percent off with this code so there's plenty to choose from.

★ GoRuck Bullet Ruck 14L Backpack for $145 ($50 off)GoRuck

We love GoRuck's over-the-top sturdy packs. Packs don't come better made than this. The Bullet is the smallest of GoRuck's bags and makes a good pack for around town (the laptop compartment is awesome) or short, lightweight hikes. GoRuck's packs aren't cheap, but this deal makes the price a little easier to bear.

Deuter Trail Pro 33L Backpack for $105 ($70 off)Backcountry (Men’s)Backcountry (Women’s)

We haven't tested this exact pack, but reviewer Scott Gilbertson has been testing the similar Deuter Speed Lite 30 ($124) all fall (it's also on sale), and he owns the Trail 25 ACT from a few years back, which is similar. Both of those are very comfortable, sturdy packs, and the Pro 33L here looks to be the same. It has a nice set of internal organization options, a decent hipbelt for this size pack, and Deuter's trademark venting system to keep your back cool.

Deuter Kid Comfort Active Carrier for $224 ($56 off)Backcountry

Reviewer Scott Gilbertson's son grew up in this pack, which carried him from the mountains of Colorado to the hot barren mesas of Chaco Canyon. It's not cheap (though this deal takes some of the pain away), but it's well-made, and, most important, stable and comfortable. It's also the easiest kid-hiking-pack he has tested to take on and off, which you will inevitably do, a lot.

Brevite The Jumper Camera Backpack for $136 ($34 off)BreviteBackcountryB&H Photo

The Jumper is one of our favorite camera bags. It's stylish and doesn't look like a camera bag. Yet you get the side pocket common on camera bags for easy access to the camera inside, and you can unzip the front to grab additional lenses. There's a zippered pocket on the front with some mesh pouches for batteries, cables, or SD cards, and the main compartment is roomy enough to hold a sweater (or lunch).

Mission Workshop Khyte for $312 ($78 off)—Use Code BF23Mission Workshop

20 percent off sitewide and 20 percent off a future order doesn't make a Mission Workshop bag cheap. But if you've had your eye on the fully waterproof and customizable Khyte, which is one of our favorite messenger bags, this is the sale for you. Don't be fooled by the BF23 or the fact that the text urging you to use the code is no longer present on the sales page. We tested it at checkout, and it still works.

JanSport Embroidered SuperBreak Plus for $35 ($15 off)JanSport

Every high school kid has a SuperBreak Plus, which is one of the most affordable laptop backpacks in our guide. The 600 denier fabric makes for a tough bag. You get a spacious main compartment, side bottle pocket, and an interior padded 15-inch laptop sleeve.

Road Runner Bike Bags: 30 Percent Off With Code CM2023Road Runner

Road Runner makes our favorite bike bags. Reviews editor Adrienne So has the Lil Guy fanny pack and the Slacker day pack. They're made from durable cordura and the Lil Guy has a sling for a U-lock for her bike. They're some of her favorite bags.

Fitness Tracker Deals★ Garmin Instinct 2S Solar Watch for $300 ($100 off)AmazonGarminBest BuyREI

The Instinct 2S Solar (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is the best value for the money in the sports watch category. It has insanely good battery life thanks to its small, sharp monochrome screen. The Instinct can track an incredible array of fitness-related features and it has three GPS systems to pinpoint location and distance, even at sea or under tree cover.

Garmin Forerunner 255S Smartwatch for $250 ($100 off)Amazon (255S)Best BuyScheels

Garmin's Forerunner line of GPS-enabled fitness trackers is bewilderingly complex, but this is our favorite (8/10, WIRED Recommends). You get great battery life in a lightweight, comfortable watch. There's all the detailed fitness tracking you'd expect, especially for running, hiking, and cycling. It also has pretty good sleep tracking. The Music version, which allows you to store and listen to music via Bluetooth headphones, is also on sale for $300 ($100 off). If you're not sure which Garmin to get, have a look at our guide to picking the right model.

Garmin InReach Mini Satellite Communicator for $289 ($60 off)Walmart

If you're breaking off your toothbrush handle to reduce weight in your hyperlight pack, you need an inReach Mini. It's tiny—a mere 3.5 ounces—and utilizes the super-fast Iridium satellite network, which will let you send an SOS from anywhere on the planet. It's one of our favorite satellite messengers for traveling off-grid.

★ Apple Watch Ultra 2 (49 mm, GPS + Cellular) Smartwatch for $739 ($60 off)AmazonBest Buy

The Apple Watch Ultra 2 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is only a month old but it's already on sale. It's our favorite smartwatch for outdoor sports. It packs a new (and bright) 3,000-nit display, the latest S9 chip for faster processing, and the new ultra-wideband chip for precision-locating your phone. It's a great option if you're heavily into outdoor sports and are looking for a rugged, full-functioning smartwatch to take along with you. It's also the Apple Watch with the best battery life thanks to its massive size.

Fitbit Charge 6 for $100 ($60 off)AmazonBest BuyTarget

This is the best price we've seen for the Fitbit Charge 6 (7/10, WIRED Review), the latest addition to the Charge lineup. Its predecessor remains our favorite fitness tracker, but this model struggles at times. The companion app leaves a bit to be desired, there's no fall detection, and Bluetooth connectivity is glitchy. You should also be aware that to access every feature, you'll need a Fitbit Premium subscription that costs $10 per month. All that being said, at this price, the Fitbit Charge 6 is a simple and focused fitness tracker with a pretty robust suite of health metrics.

Withings ScanWatch for $219 ($81 off)Amazon ($225)Best Buy ($225)Withings

Withings just released the ScanWatch 2, so the first generation of the company's watch to be cleared by the FDA is now heavily discounted. This hybrid smartwatch (8/10, WIRED Recommends) looks exactly like an analog watch with a host of reliable health and fitness features.

Oura Ring in Rose Gold for $449 ($100 off)Oura

The Oura Ring is one of the first, and arguably one of the best, models of fitness tracker that you don't have to wear on your wrist. Every model has a discount, although not all of them are the same price off. You will still need a $6/month Oura membership to access many of the best features.

Mobvoi Ticwatch Pro 5 Smartwatch for $245 ($105 off)AmazonWalmart

This full-featured Wear OS smartwatch has some of the best battery life you'll find—roughly three days—despite its capabilities. That's thanks to a smart dual-layer display that barely sips juice when you're not using the watch. Read more about it in our Best Smartwatches guide.

Samsung Galaxy Watch6 Classic Smartwatch for $348 ($82 off)AmazonWalmart

The Galaxy Watch6 Classic has some exclusive features for Samsung phone owners only—like the electrocardiogram—but technically any Android owner can use this smartwatch. It has better battery life than an Apple Watch, smooth performance, and a fun mechanical rotating bezel. You can save some dough on the standard Galaxy Watch6 if you don't care for the mechanical bezel.

Casio ProTrek PRW-61 Bluetooth Watch for $254 ($50 off)WalmartCasio ($252)

This barely smart watch looks attractive and barely ever needs recharging thanks to Casio's Tough Solar tech. It has a stopwatch, a compass, and a barometer, plus it's rugged yet comfy. Read more in our Best Smartwatches guide.

E-Bike and Scooter DealsRad Power Bikes RadRunner 2 for $1,299 ($200 off)Rad Power Bikes

Rad Power Bikes is one of the first direct-to-consumer ebike companies, and as such has been the subject of some painful lawsuits as the market has grown. However, it's still a very popular bike, very affordable, and very fun and easy to ride. All of their bikes are on sale but most people seem to ride the basic RadRunner, which is insanely powerful for the price, if a little unwieldy for smaller riders.

Wing Freedom X for $1,148 ($700 off)Wing

This is the affordable, DTC version of the now-defunct VanMoof (8/10, WIRED Recommends). You get a stylish, attractive bike for not a lot of money. All of Wing's bikes are currently on sale.

Electra Loft Go! for $1,700 ($300 off)REI

Electra's newest comfy cruiser (7/10, WIRED Review) is almost 20 pounds lighter than the last time senior associate reviews editor Adrienne So tested it, thanks to a new, super-lightweight motor. It's beautiful, she says—perfect for keeping up with her much faster husband, and now even more affordable.

Aventon Aventure.2 for $1,599 ($400 off)Aventon

We've tried several Aventon models and appreciate the high level of quality for a relatively low price point (the accessories are better than Lectric's, too). This fat-tire ebike (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is affordable, versatile, and has built-in commuter essentials. We also like the Soltera.2 and the Abound, both of which are on sale.

Fluidfreeride Mosquito Escooter for $749 ($100 off)Fluidfreeride

The Fluidfreeride Mosquito escooter (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is lightweight and easy to carry, but still packs a top speed of 24 miles per hour, a loud horn, drum breaks, plus front and reaR lights. It has a quick folding system too, and you can even fold the handlebars.

Specialized Tero 3.0 for $2,000 ($1,250 off)Specialized

We tested the premium version of this bike (8/10, WIRED Recommends) and loved it. The best way to describe it is that it's one of Specialized's cushiony, comfy mountain bikes that has been given a motor and some adjustments to make it an all-around quiver killer. This will be the most-used bike you own.

Ride1Up Cafe Cruiser for $1,195 ($400 off)Ride1Up

Ride1Up positions the Cafe Cruiser as its light, affordable daily cruiser (7/10, WIRED Recommends) but with a 750W motor and a 65-pound frame, it's pretty big and powerful for an entry-level bike. Still, at this price (and for these specs!) it's a pretty amazing value.

40 Percent Off Sitewide at Nutcase Bike HelmetsNutcase

Take it from a reformed never-helmet rider: Wear a damn helmet! It doesn't take long to become used to wearing it, and with style as good as those at Nutcase, you'll get compliments and admiring looks much more often than derisive snickers. Where else can you find a bike helmet painted to look like a watermelon? Protect your melon. Ride helmeted.

JackRabbit eBike with Free Extra Battery—Use Code BFOGJackrabbit

This is the latest version of our favorite micro ebike. The next big trend in electric bikes is micro-mobility, which refers to tiny personal vehicles. Tiny bikes are more affordable, easier to transport, and easier to store. And just like mini anything, they're completely irresistible.

Peak Design Bike Mount for $49 ($21 off)Peak DesignB&H Photo

We love pretty much everything Peak Design makes, which is amazing because almost everything is currently 10 to 15 percent off. Senior associate reviews editor Adrienne So particularly likes the Bike Mount, which locks your phone in place with the Everyday Case, which is also on sale, unless you want the iPhone 15 or Pixel 8 versions. The bags are also on sale today.

GoTrax F2 for $719 ($280 off)GoTrax

We've tested a number of GoTrax's escooters but we like the company's folding, step-through ebike as well. It has the usual pitfalls of a cheap folding ebike (heavy, awkward) but it has a decent 20-mile range and all the commuter essentials for well under $1,000.

Free Carrying Case With Every Montague Bike Ordered—Use Code HOLIDAY23 ($125 Value)Montague

In his review of the folding ebike Montague M-E1 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) reviews editor Julian Chokkattu referred to the M-E1 as "pretty darn close to perfection." This is not an amazing deal, but if you have a folding ebike you were probably going to travel with it anyway.

Showers Pass Crosspoint Gloves for $33 ($14 off)Showers Pass

If you're biking outside in the winter, you need gloves. These aren't going to be as warm as shell gloves, but for above-30-degree temperatures in the rain, they keep senior editor Adrienne So's hands warm and dry. Showers Pass is one of our favorite rainwear companies and it's holding a week of Cyber Specials.

Apparel and Footwear Deals★ Icebreaker Quantum III Long-Sleeve Zip Hoodie for $165 ($45 off)Moosejaw (Women’s)Moosejaw (Men’s)

An Icebreaker hoodie was reviewer Medea Giordano's introduction to merino wool, and it remains one of the best jackets she's ever owned. This jacket is 100 percent merino and incredibly warm, despite not being all that thick. That makes it a great option for days when the weather may vary considerably–it's warm enough for a cold morning but won't be a burden in your pack the rest of the day. This deal was better earlier in the week, but it's still a good price.

Smartwool Merino Crew Base Layer (Men's) for $80 ($35 off)Moosejaw (Men’s)Moosejaw (Women’s, $71)

This shirt is an updated version of the all-season version we like. This one is 100 percent merino and fits fairly snug, making it a good choice for layering. The price varies by color, but most are $86. The women's version is also on sale, in some cases for even less (select colors).

Smartwool Run Zero Cushion Mid Crew Pattern Sock for $15 ($6 off)Backcountry

We like these zero-padded socks for everyday use and hiking. They're plenty soft and not too tight. They're only about 50 percent merino (the rest is various forms of nylon) so they won't be quite as odor-resistant as full merino socks, but they make a good intro to the world of wool socks. If you prefer some extra cushion in the heel and toe areas, the Light Cushion and Full Cushion versions are also on sale.

20 Percent Off $100 Purchase at Free FlyFree Fly

Free Fly's Bamboo Shade Hoodies are one of our favorite picks for Sun Protective Clothing. Of all the sun shirts we tried, it felt the least sticky once we were moving.

Smartwool All-Season Merino Long-Sleeve Base Layer (Men's) for $65 ($25 off)Moosejaw (Men’s)REI (Men’s)

We love these long-sleeve Smartwool shirts for how soft they are. The heavy-duty seams (read: sturdier, longer lasting) are not so heavy that they cause any discomfort—the shirts lie flat and sit off the shoulder, as any half-decent base layer should. These aren't 100 percent merino, but the 12 percent nylon might be welcome if you're a merino newbie. These are also made with plant-based dyes.

Smartwool Hike Full Cushion Crew Socks for $16 ($6 off)Moosejaw (Men’s)Moosejaw (Women’s)

We have not tested these exact socks, but WIRED reviewers own and love several other Smartwool pairs that have stood the test of time. And yes, you really can wear them on the trail for several days in a row and they won't smell. We do suggest letting them air out each day if you can.

Smartwool Zero Cushion Low Ankle Running Socks for $12 ($6 off)Backcountry

These minimal socks are a great choice for runners. They work especially well with barefoot shoes if that's your bag. They're 54 percent merino wool, with enough stretch to keep them nice and tight inside shoes, even when you're trail running.

Darn Tough Micro Crew Light Cushion Sock for $16 ($7 off)Moosejaw (Men’s)Moosejaw (Women’s)

My colleagues have always loved Darn Tough's merino wool socks, but senior reviewer Scott Gilbertson has never tried them until this year and… he's sold. They're great socks. These are only 60 percent merino, but that's pretty good for socks. The price dropped a bit more in our latest update. Darn Tough Socks also have a lifetime warranty.

Outdoor Research Men's Goldbar Pant for $75 ($25 off)Moosejaw

Senior reviewer Scott Gilbertson just started testing these, as part of myhisquest for the perfect pants, but he's already a fan. He says the cotton twill is impressively heavy duty, without being too restrictive. He probably wouldn't go rock climbing in them, but they're great for hiking, especially for breaking through the dense undergrowth of the Appalachian trails he's been on lately. They're DWR coated, which he doesn't love, but it does make them water resistant.

Pit Viper: Up to 50 Percent OffPit Viper

We like a lot of Pit Viper's sunglasses. The brand is known for its neon, oversized sunnies and goggles. Styles we've tried successfully include the heart-shaped Admirers and the polarized Fondue, but there are oodles of styles to choose from. Discounts are applied automatically during checkout based on what you spend, ranging from 20 percent off to 50 percent off.

Branwyn Essential Bralette for $36 ($12 off)Branwyn

We wrote a rave about how wool underwear can change your life. Merino wool is moisture-wicking, naturally odor-repellent, and shockingly good at regulating your body temperature, whether you’re really hot or really cold. Natural fibers like merino are better for the environment, for workers, and for you. Branwyn's essential bralettes and underwear are 25 percent off through November 27.

Allbirds Wool Dwellers for $25 ($40 off)Allbirds

We've written about Allbirds and the company's mission to make simple shoes out of sustainable materials many times. However, the best way to experience an Allbirds is probably with a warm, wool slipper. Many of the shoes are up to 70 percent off.

Paddleboard and Kayak Deals★ Bote Breeze Aero Inflatable Paddle Board for $559 ($240 off)Amazon

The Breeze Aero (7/10, WIRED Recommends) inflatable paddleboard is well built and durable, and it packs up reasonably small. It's by far the stablest paddleboard senior reviewer Scott Gilbertson has tested, making it a good choice for beginners. It's easy to unpack and easy to use. Inflating is something of a chore with the hand pump, but once it's deflated, it's not hard to stow it away again. This deal is on the 11'6" model (which supports up to 355 pounds).

Oru Beach LT Folding Kayak for $959 ($240 off)Oru

It's been a while since we tested an Oru, but every time we have we've loved them. These clever kayaks fold up like origami, packing down to the size of a small suitcase. Most weigh around 25 pounds and they're all on sale. The Beach LT is in the middle of the lineup, both in terms of size and price. It's a bit wider than some models, making it more stable and giving you a spacious cockpit that's more beginner-friendly.

Moonshine Mfg Hooch Complete Longboard for $179 ($120 off)Moonshine

This is reviews editor Adrienne So's favorite longboard, from her favorite small company, and this is an unbelievable sale. All completes are 40 percent off. She has both the Hooch and the Rum Runner and if you like downhilling or carving in long smooth stretches, there are no better boards. Check out our Best Skateboarding Gear guide for more.

Engage Pickleball Paddles on Sale from $165Engage

Engage makes our favorite pickleball paddle for most people. For the first time ever, they're selling certified refurbs at prices up to 60 percent off. These paddles are used but come with a 60-day warranty. Of the paddles currently listed we have tested the Pursuit and liked it, though not as much as the Omega. But everything we've used from this brand inspires confidence.

Tent and Sleeping Deals★ MSR Elixir 3-Season Tent (4-Person) for $342 ($148 off)MSRBackcountryMoosejaw

Our favorite lightweight family backpacking tent, the MSR Elixir 4 tent isn't quite as pricey as options like the Big Agnes Copper Spur, but it's not much heavier. Senior reviewer Scott Gilbertson used this with his three kids, and there was plenty of interior space. That said, three adults will be more comfortable than four. The mesh at the top provides great ventilation on warm summer nights and the crossover pole helps it stand up well in the wind. The 1-person,
