As wildlife photographers we are often faced with inclement weather when shooting, heck we even seek it out to add atmosphere to our wildlife images. As such good quality outdoor gear like a Gore-tex jacket and Gore-tex pants is an investment that most wildlife photographers will make but it’s expensive gear so what’s the best way to save a few bucks, especially if you’re Canadian? Yes we Canadians still pay significantly higher prices than our USA brethren when it comes to outdoor outfitters.
For years I was the traditional deal finder going to local outdoor outfitters and watching for one day sales that usually amounted to savings of 10-30%. The odd time I might find dailydeals or one day sales that would be 50% off retail but that was more rare. And of course this adventure meant I had to listen to radio ads, read flyers and drive all over the city one outdoor outfitter at a time often to discover they did not have my size in stock.
Those days are long since behind me as I have discovered one outdoor outfitter in particular that offers dailydeals, the one day sale and an ongoing sale bin with discounts from 30-70% off and it is in Calgary, Alberta.
Here are a few reasons to shop at Live Out There if you are Canadian: (Sorry they don’t ship internationally at this time)
- Dailydeals in the form of a one day sale offering 40-70% discounts on brand names like Arc’teryx, The Northface, Marmot, Icebreaker, Patagonia and Mountain Hardwear. Tip: Dailydeals last for 24 hours only or when stock is depleted and the standard sizes go fast so get on the deals early and order quick if you see something you want.
- Ongoing sale bin offering 30-70% discounts. I check this sale bin weekly.
- Free shipping and free returns. I have tried the return process personally, it is done online and works as advertised with no hassle. You have 60 days to return your purchase so no risk.
- Live Out There is Canadian and we canucks prefer to shop at home when we can to save on duties and shipping costs right.
I have the Live Out There dailydeals posted on COOLWildlife under the Deals section of my website for your convenience. It is updated as the deals change daily so check back every 24 hours for a new deal.
