Like painting a mural with nail polish or cooking steak over the lukewarm glow of a flashlight, outdoor adventures are less enjoyable and more time-consuming without the proper gear. Deck yourself in adventurous accouterments with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of outdoor gear at Frugal Backpacker, located in Arden.
Frugal Backpacker outfits outdoor explorers with a plethora of discounted brand-name gear, including camping equipment, clothing, footwear, and more. Adventure-seekers can load up a bright blue Kelty Grommet day pack ($27) with several camping necessities, including flashlights, a compass, and water bottles. The Sierra Designs Microlight jacket ($11) swaddles lads exposed to the elements in a 100% polyester taffeta coat, with an adjustable hood and fabric self-stuff bag for storing, and women can hike in sure-footed confidence with the Teva Pretty Rugged Nylon 2 athletic sandals ($49), which provide a cushier landing during boulder pole-vaulting. Frugal Backpacker can also fit the nature-wanderers with a bevy of accessories, including sunglasses, dog collars, and trekking poles for rugged terrain, and aqua enthusiasts can don colorful brain buckets with a purchase of Nrs Pro Tec Ace helmets ($40), ideal for a rocky kayak trip. Browse through a book on waterfowl anatomy or brush up on the world's most treacherous climbs up Napoleon statues with the store’s ever-changing selection of books.
