The yearly Black Friday consumer festival is upon us again with crazy deals available on everything from skis to outerwear to gloves and electronics. We like to think that our readers have their heads screwed on enough not to spend their hard-earned cash on pointless excess, but we can't deny this is a prime time to upgrade your shredded pants, pick up a jacket that's actually waterproof or some skis that have edges (for a couple of days at least). So we put together this little guide to some of the best Black Friday deals out for yourself or the skier in your life.
686: 20% off everything
Are you looking for some of the best outerwear out there? We recently tested a bunch of 686 products and we were super impressed. Our favorites include Parker White's chosen colorway in the Stretch GORE-TEX Weapon Jacket and Dispatch Bib Pants. If you're looking for some stylish, top-of-the-line outerwear then look no further. This kit will keep you dry no matter the conditions, warm if you wear the included 600 fill down mid-layer and looking stylish no matter what.
At a lower price point, the Dojo Pants offer a baggy fit and 20k/20k technicality at an insane price. These are the go-to pants of the NS squad and at $159 in the sale, they're hard to beat. Twig is 5'9, 145lbs, and rocking a size L.
686 also offers some awesome gloves, with hard to beat price points. Check out the 2-in-1 SMARTY GORE-TEX Mittens. Complete with a merino-blend liner, touch screen compatible, light fill insulation, and GORE-TEX shell, they'll keep you warm while still allowing your hands to breathe (or capture iPhone footy) when you need it most.
686 only goes on sale once a year, and everything on their website is 20% off, take advantage of the lowest prices you’ll find this season!
D-Structure: Deals on skis, boots, bindings, and more
If you ever went to a D-jam back in the day, you know Newschoolers has grown up alongside D/S. We couldn't be more stoked to see them still supporting our sport, sponsoring skiers and video projects and generally crushing it for skiers in QC and beyond. They have a ton of offers on their site this Black Friday, including some banging deals on skis, boots and bindings:
Line Blend skis: 15% off → 594.96$ CAD
K2 B&E boots: 15% off → 509.96$ CAD
Tyrolia Attack 14 bindings: 20% off → 223.96$ CAD
4WestCo: 20% Off Everything
Alberta-based 4West are NS homies through and through. They made our new trifecta tees and we're gonna have a very special collab coming your way in the near future. In the meantime, they have a banger sale on, including 20% off their new line of tees and longsleeves, their new duffel bag, and their legendary riding pants. Perfect for going hard in the streets.
Gilson Skis: All skis $95 off with the code CYBERBF
Gilson hasn't had the best time of it lately, to say the least. The factory burned down just a few days ago, halting production of the custom skis that make up a big part of their line. However, their inventory survived and you can have any of their skis (and snowboards) at $95 off this weekend. That includes the NS Best Of Test winning Fusion and the hyper light park weapon the Bandit.
Newschoolers Merch: 40% Off Everything
Hopefully, NS doesn't need explaining here, but we quietly dropped a new tshirt this week, representing a trifecta of the finer things in life and those who pursue them. Everything, including the new T, is 40% off with a minimum order of $15 so we don't actually lose money.
4Frnt Skis: Limited Black Friday Coupon Book
4FRNT is 20 years old this year and they are celebrating the anniversary in style. The Black Friday Coupon book is back and the limited coupons are going fast. Get $100 off any ski, free poles with the purchase of a ski, free ski bags, and more. Each coupon has limited uses so shop early to snag the best deals. We're big fans of the Devastator as an all-mountain freestyle option that cuts it from the park to the pow with an increasingly uncommon flat camber/rocker shape. These quiver killers pivot with the best of them, yet provide a super stable landing platform for going big.
Arsenic Apparel: A limited Black Friday collection
Arsenic does BLACK Friday different. With a heavy emphasis on black, you can expect a lot of your favorite color to wear in this collection. All black everything for your favorites including sweatshirts, fleeces, Answer Pants, hats, and many beanies!
The release will be available beginning at 10 am EST on Friday.
Dragon Goggles: 20% off sitewide
Dragon has been producing some of the best goggles in the game for years now and supporting a stacked team of riders from Lucas Wachs to Tatum Monod and Hunter Hess. All of Dragon's goggles this year are equipped with their signature LUMALENS® tech and they have a bunch of pro models colorways for their biggest stars, including Jossi Wells, Chris Benchetler, and Dennis Renalter.
