Quality outdoor gear is seldom cheap, and cheap outdoor is seldom quality. And while acquiring a decent loadout for hiking and camping typically comes at a fairly steep price, Amazon’s annual Prime Day sale gives off-grid enthusiasts a chance to snag some of the latest and greatest pieces of kit at a substantial discount. However, with literally thousands of deals being offered over the next 48 hours, it can be exceedingly difficult to hone in on the best deals and biggest discounts. So, with this in mind, we’ve put in the legwork for you, thoroughly scouring the online retail giant to deliver this guide to the best Amazon Prime Day outdoor deals.
