questionswhat websites should i check out for good deals…


Why don't you go to a site such as Bing.Com or one of the other search sites for best prices?


Yeah, from some brief Googling, it seems like kinda just wins. I was hoping people knew of some secret special discount/closeout sites specifically for this kind of thing...

I did find this, though, which is pretty awesome:


It depends on what kind of quality you're looking for.

If you want a lightweight waterproof shell that you can layer if /when you need warmth - in other words outdoors-y gear - then I'd start with REI. Check the clearance section of their site. I have a really nice Marmot shell that retails for nearly $400 (I got it when a store was going out of business, and back when I used to do a lot more backpacking). I also have a couple of REI shells that run around $100. They aren't /as/ nice, but they're very good, and a great value.

Also check out they have a lot of closeouts and discontinued items, and therefore some good prices.
