10 Lockdown Bargains For Outdoor Enthusiasts

Treat yourself to some discounted outdoor gear. You've earned it

How many lockdown days has it been now? We were, initially, keeping count but after our second DIY haircut in quarantine we sort of lost track to be honest. Anyway, one day they’ll let us out for real and when that time comes it might be nice to, you know, have a new bit of outdoorsy gear to show for it. “Treat yo’ self,” as Tom Haverford in Parks and Recreation would say.

This roundup here is made up of some of the coolest discounted items currently available on the websites of our good pals Blackleaf and Webtogs. We dig the stuff they sell, and we think you will too.

Deus Ex Machina Tokyo Address Crew Sweater

Nothing says “Hey. I’m cool and casual” quite like a Deus Ex Machina sweater. There’s just something about it that screams “I wore this in lockdown while vaping to the sound of my vinyls spinning, I wore this on my government allocated evening walk round the local park, and I’m for sure going to wear it round town when we’re eventually cut loose and like, you know, allowed to hug each other again and stuff.”

RRP: £79.95 || Blackleaf: £68.49

Fjallraven Raven 28L Backpack

Crafted from hard as nails G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco material, the Fjallraven Raven 28L backpack is a proper useful everyday number. Composed of recycled polyester and organic cotton, with a very spacious main compartment and a separate padded pocket for a laptop, this thing handles days out in the country and city living with equal aplomb. That eye-pleasing Swedish aesthetic Fjallraven are known for is also, we’re happy to report, present and correct here.

RRP: £110 || Blackleaf: £90.49

Fjallraven Kanken Classic Backpack

Designed in the late 1970s, the decade of big hair, big flares, and Björn Borg no less, the Fjallraven Kanken Classic Backpack stands today as a true icon. Its sheer level of popularity has seen it wrestle with parody and cliche at times, but it’s timeless style has meant it’s been able to ride out these waves with relative ease; remaining, as ever, a high point for outdoor fashion.

RRP: £85 || Blackleaf: £74.99

Rab Quest Pull-On Fleece

Fleeces are properly cool, aren’t they? They were, for ages, not very cool. But now, by god… they’re cool again. Retro fleeces, in particular, are the must have item for every outdoorsy hipster worth their salt. This Rab one is dead nice and is, for those of you keeping score, 96% polyester and 4% elastane.

RRP: £55 || Blackleaf: £46.99

Barbour Classic Bedale Wax Jacket

For some, Barbour jackets bring to mind that scene in Peep Show where Mark accidentally rips the head off a pheasant he’s shot. Not because a Barbour jacket features in that scene necessarily (one might feature, we can’t be bothered to check in all honesty) but because, on some level, the brand give off a pure walking in the countryside energy.

That being said, as outdoor enthusiasts we’re naturally all partial to a muddy woodland walk; one that culminates in a couple of pints and a Sunday roast at a pub called  ‘The Fox and Horse’ or something. Why not go full countryside dweller and wear a Barbour jacket while doing so?

RRP: £228.95 || Blackleaf: £189.99

Topo Designs Klettersack 22L Backpack

We like this backpack. We like it a lot. It’s just got a vibe, yo’ know? A real cool vibe. This cool vibe might, we don’t know, have something to do with the fact it stems from Colorado (one of the cooler American states in our humble opinion). Or it might be because it’s constructed from durable 1000D CORDURA, boasts innovative heavy duty straps, and has a pleasant styling that feels totally unique. We honestly couldn’t tell you. Sometimes you just get a feeling for a product, and this backpack definitely gives us that feeling.

RRP: £179.95 || Blackleaf: £114.99

Millican Fraser 25L Backpack

If the Millican Fraser 25L backpack was a pet, it’d be the beloved family dog that’s always scratching at the front door; itching to get outside and breathe in that lovely outdoor scent. It’s tough, lightweight, and has a sick top lid-design (the backpack that is). Special mention must also go to its laptop sleeve and internal hydration sleeve. Love this backpack. Love it.

RRP: £140 || Blackleaf: £110.49
