Outdoor Gear: The best Prime Day deals for your next outing

outdoor-deals.jpg

Amazon Prime Day is here. For those unfamiliar with Prime Day, it's like Black Friday in July, but limited to Amazon. If you've got a camping trip coming up or have just been putting off upgrading some of your outdoor gear, today might be your best opportunity to do so before Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

Rather than sifting through the millions of products on sale, however, we've scoured Amazon for the best outdoor deals of today. We'll be constantly updating this list until Prime Day is over, so bookmark this page and check back for more deals.
