Summer is practically here, and I plan to spend as much time outside as I can. Hiking, cycling, kayaking, camping, I want to do it all. And if those sound like your kind of adventures, you NEED to check out the clearance sale happening right now at MEC. Tons of gear is up to 50% off!
If your kids are ready to start hiking with you and going on day trips, this Deuter Fox 40 Backpack is a youth size – and it's on sale for $115.50, down from $165. It's the mini version of the adult pack, and there's enough space that they shouldn't have to ask you to carry any of their things.
I'm as ready as anyone to set winter aside, but I can't ignore a deal like this. While quantities last, you can pick up a Patagonia Micro Puff Hoody in women's sizes for just $247, down from $375!
MEC is a co-operative (it stands for Mountain Equipment Co-op, after all), so you need a membership to shop there anyway. You can buy a MEC lifetime membership for $5 and just add it to your cart before you check out.
That's it! Once you're a full-fledged member, you can shop in-store or on their website. Online, just sign in to your account. In-store, mention your phone number at the till, and they can look up your account number.
