The Best Outdoor Deals to Shop Ahead of Amazon Prime Day

Warm weather is here, and the woods, mountains, and beaches are calling—but don’t head outside before you equip yourself with all the best Prime Day outdoor deals that Amazon has to offer. While Amazon Prime Day 2022 isn’t anticipated until July 12 and 13, we’re already seeing markdowns on top-rated outdoor gear ranging from water bottles to sleeping bags (and camping pads). The mega-retailer isn’t the only place you’ll find discounted outdoor gear. Amazon might have started the super-hyped two-day sale event but other competing retailers have started their own version of Prime Day. More on that below.

Now, before you start your scrolling, keep in mind that Prime Day deals are only available to Amazon Prime members. If you aren’t a member yet, don’t stress: You can opt into a 30-day free trial anytime.

The Best Prime Day Outdoor Deals We Saw Last Year 

Last Prime Day, one of the topmost best sellers was the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter, an award-winning filter that lets you drink water safely in the great outdoors. Other outdoorsy gadgets like Garmin smartwatches were majorly marked down. We also saw camping hammocks, fire pits, LED lanterns, and camping gear from Marmot and Coleman get in on the Prime Day sales. Here’s a closer look at last year’s best Amazon Prime Day deals: 

If anything listed caught your eye, bookmark it now and check back when Amazon Prime Day 2022 kicks off in July—it might be on sale once again. 

What to Expect from Amazon Prime Day 2022

Not only are we expecting for 2021’s best sellers to go on sale again, but we’re also anticipating markdowns on camping trip must-haves like sleeping pads, propane stoves, duffel bags, and camping chairs. These big-ticket gear deals will go hand-in-hand with trending sales on smaller hiking essentials and personal safety gear like insect repellent, headlamps, and rechargeable battery power banks—you know, the items you do not want to get caught without when you’re outside.

As we mentioned, while Amazon Prime Day will be the main event, watch for competing offers from other big-box stores like Walmart, as well as outdoor retailers like Backcountry, REI, and others. And, for year-round savings, there are plenty of cheap outdoor gear sites to peruse for the lowest price on your coveted items.

What Outdoor Brands Have Deals on Prime Day?

In addition to Coleman, Garmin, Marmot, and Lifestraw, be on the lookout for more outdoor Prime Day deals from Klymit, Klean Kanteen, and hammock fave ENO, among others. You may also find some seriously discounted items from Amazon’s own Basics line of camping chairs, backpacks, hammocks, water-resistant tarps, and more.

If you saw last year’s Prime Day deals and got a case of FOMO, you’ll have a chance to snag some of those same deals this year. In fact, we’ve already seen some of those items on sale, on top of several other new discounts you can snap up right now. Read on to snag some of the most exciting early Prime Day deals.
