This Backcountry Site Is Taking Up to 93% Off Summer Gear


Summer is wrapping up, but that doesn't mean warm temperatures will suddenly vanish. There's still plenty of summery weather ahead, which makes it extra smart to stock up on summer clearance gear now. One good place to do so is Steep & Cheap, a site run by Backcountry that's currently taking up to 93% off apparel, outdoor items, and accessories as part of its semi-annual sale. (Prices are as marked. Shipping starts around $6.)

We've picked out eight summer staples you might want to buy while things are hot.

8 Warm Weather Essentials on Sale

Day Dress

Gerry Women's Votive Getaway Dress for $19.99 ($60 off)

This casual racerback dress will keep you cool for a day at the park and cute for fancy brunches. The bright colors and mixed prints also make it fun and effortless to wear, so you can concentrate on getting the most out of your outdoor time while it's still warm.

Swim Fan

Burnside Men's Multi-Stripe Board Shorts for $9.99 ($30 off)

Neither pools nor oceans have yet turned frigid, so swimming is totally still on the table. With this inexpensive suit, you won't have to worry about getting in only a few weeks of wear, because that's more than enough to justify the cost.

In Living Color

Smith Women's Pivlock Asana Sunglasses for $47.70 (a low by $2)

It is a truth universally acknowledged that one can never have too many pairs of sunglasses. These shades double down on that theory, thanks to swappable lenses that allow you to customize your color combo.

Be Prepared

Stoic Men's Hawkeye Plaid Shirt for $13.98 ($26 off)

When you're not sure where a day off may lead, play it safe with this patterned button-up. It's classier than a T-shirt but not as stuffy as a polo, so you'll be comfortable and ready for almost anything. (All bets are off if you somehow end up dining with royalty.)

Simple Slides

Cocobelle Women's Palermo Sandals from $101.37 (a low by $18)

These strappy leather sandals will work at the beach, the farmers market, or an afternoon wedding, and then they'll transition to fall with jeans. You can basically wear them until there's danger of your toes getting cold. (Note: The Brown Palermo sandals are the cheaper price.)

Get the Luke Look

Costa Men's Luke 400G Polarized Sunglasses for $69.63 (a low by $63)

These glasses were designed for country singer Luke Bryan, who's apparently an outdoorsy kind of guy but still appreciates a well-cut suit. If you, too, enjoy getting the best of both worlds, the woodgrain frames will probably be just your style.

Short Order

Patagonia Women's Barely Baggies Board Shorts from $19.60 (a low by $7)

These floral shorts function as both swimsuit cover-ups and everyday apparel, and double the uses means double the value. Now you just have to choose which print is your favorite, unless you think you need them all (no judgment).

Try to Avoid Pop-Tops

Stoic Men's Afterparty Flip Flops for $10.48 ($20 off)

When you're staring down a season of confining boots and sneakers, what could be more appealing than the freedom of flip flops? Let your feet experience the sun and fresh air as long as possible while you reap the benefits of cushioned soles and lace-free living.
