Welcome to The Gear List, a semi-regular series where we spotlight the best discounts and deals on tactical equipment, outdoor gear, and everything in between.
We may love reviewing the latest and greatest gear on the market here at Task & Purpose, but like everyone else, we don’t like paying through the nose for it — and if you’re like us, you’d much rather get a sweet deal on knives or other bushcraft gear than shell out at the base PX or go rummaging through bins at an off-base pawn shop.
As a result, we’re constantly on the lookout for some of the best deals on the best gear and tech out there, whether it’s a new blade or multitool for your kit, camping gear for your next outdoor adventure, or even some tools and accessories so you can trick out your ride without spending an arm and a leg.
That’s why we created The Gear List, a new series designed to spotlight some of the finest deals and discounts around. Take a gander below and let us know if we missed anything in the comments — and, as always, happy hunting.
These prices were valid at press time, but prices can change and deals do expire.
