There was a time in my life when I would do anything for a gear deal. I was young and broke and willing to be uncomfortable to save money. Examples included trusting my life to used climbing equipment (cams, but never ropes), blistering my feet in running shoes a size too big, and riding a snowboard too narrow for my feet, so my toes would drag and I’d eat it while speeding down groomers.

If you’re reading this, you’ve likely had a similar experience—finding gear at a discount is an outdoor rite of passage. But as I’ve grown older, my tastes have refined, and I’ve gotten a little looser with how I spend my hard-earned dollars. Maybe that’s true for you, too. If you’re like me, though, you probably still love a good deal on the best products.

Well, we have a smoking one for you: if you sign up for our Outside+ membership, you’ll get a $50 credit (see program terms) to our brand-new Outside Shop. The store is full of the best outdoor gear, from the latest and greatest ski jackets to the coziest cabin footwear. There are items you can buy flat out for under $50. Or you can put it toward top-reviewed items from Outside’s biannual Buyer’s Guides. There are even some of our all-time favorite products. The best part? Every year that you renew your membership, you’ll get another $50 credit to the store. The younger version of myself is salivating at the thought.

That’s not to mention the incredible value of the membership itself, which includes a Gaia premium subscription (normally $40), a Trailforks Pro membership ($36), print subscriptions to two of our magazines (Outside, plus your choice of Backpacker, Climbing, Ski, and many more), digital access to all of our online stories, and countless other perks. I’ve been working in outdoor media for over a decade, and I can affirm that this is the most robust and useful membership money can buy.

We hope you’ll join us—and pick up some sweet gear when you do.
