I can say pretty confidently that 2019 was the year I really discovered Mountain Equipment Co-op. Sure, I'd obviously heard of them before that. They have a store a few blocks from my house, and I've stopped in occasionally. But over the past few months, I really became invested in them and what they sell.
And one thing I noticed from checking their site WAY more often is that MEC always has some kind of sale happening. They actually just started up another one. For the next week, they'll launch daily deals! Every day between Dec. 14 and 18, MEC will release new deals, and you have a few hours to scoop 'em up.
Plus, MEC will also offer FREE express shipping on orders over $50! And honestly, I can't think of a better reason to buy this women's 1996 Retro Nuptse Vest from The North Face. It's down to $174.99 from $249.99, and you might still be able to order one in time for Christmas – whether you gift it or keep it for yourself.
Before you buy anything, remember that you have to be a member of the co-operatve to actually shop online or in MEC stores. So log into any existing accounts or add a $5 membership to your cart to get started.
