This year, Amazon Prime Day—the two-day online shopping event featuring deals exclusive to Amazon Prime members—will take place on October 13 and 14. It’s a great time to save on gear, get started on some early holiday shopping, or finally pull the trigger on a product you’ve been eyeing. There are a lot of offers to browse, so to help you out, we’ll be scouring the site for the best deals on outdoor tech gear, camping gear, and products that can make your time outside even more enjoyable. Amazon releases most of its deals on those dates, so bookmark this page and check back on Monday, once the discounts really start flowing. We’ll update this article with our favorites.
Early Prime Day Deals You Can Shop Now
Coleman Classic Two-Burner Camp Stove ($44; 45 Percent Off)
The Coleman Classic is one of our Gear Guy’s top choices for car camping. “The two 10,000-BTU burners take a little while to heat things up, but no one should be in a rush when out camping,” he wrote. “If anything ever breaks on a Classic—which rarely happens—replacement parts are easy to find, and the fixes are easy to make.”
Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones ($299; 14 Percent Off)
If you work in an open-space area or spend a lot of time traveling, these headphones are a must. We recommended them for getting work done, because they feature Bose’s top-notch noise-cancellation technology and 20 hours of battery life, and they’re compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
LifeStraw Personal Water Filter ($17; 12 Percent Off)
The LifeStraw’s membrane removes 99.9 percent of bacteria and parasites. We like it so much that we included a version of the filter in our 2018 roundup of the best men’s thru-hiking gear.
Pioneer Ironman IM6 Earbuds ($13; 78 Percent Off)
We featured these in our 2019 Summer Buyer’s Guide list of the best audio gear. They’re lightweight and have a cord that clips to your shirt to stay in place. The sound quality is “faithful to your favorite tracks,” our tester said, but be aware—these earbuds do not lend themselves to aquatic activity.
Timbuk2 Stark Messenger Bag ($118; 26 Percent Off)
We picked this messenger bag as one of our favorites for bike commuting in 2017. The Stark has a sleek, professional look, with practical touches like magnetic pocket closures and reflective panels. It also boasts a 15-inch padded laptop compartment and a removable rain fly with its own stash pocket.
Tile Pro Tracker ($42 for Two; 30 Percent Off)
Never lose your keys or wallet again with the Tile Pro. We found this tracker so handy that it earned a spot in our 2019 Summer Buyer’s Guide. “If you’re within 300 feet of the Tile, you can see its location on the phone app and make it chime, so you can zero in on it,” our tester wrote.
