i'm a huge fan of that outdoor edge knife.

so far my REI magma 10 degree bag has been awesome, quite cheaper than some pretty premium bags.

i found a pair of sitka mountain gloves in the bargain cave for like 45 dollars 4 years ago... holy shit i am in love with those gloves. i'd argue they probably punch above their current retail price of 119 bucks. i'd buy another pair in a heartbeat if i needed to, i honestly just can't tell when in the heck i will need to replace them.

Now days hunting is getting to be a massive investment so people are often asking for info on gear that is on the cheaper side (me included). Just curious what hunting gear you guys have found that is a great bargain for the price? Whether it be guns, clothing, knives, packs, whatever. I'll start with something(albeit something kind of lame), the 3 pack of 550 lumen Duracell headlamps at Costco for $21. Are they top of the line? No. But they truthfully are not far off, and at $7/ piece I think they as amazing. What comes to mind for you guys?
Bear mace at Costco is s great deal as well as storage bins and bulk food. Also a great deal on trekking poles and snow shoes at mine

Hows that baby handle them mountain roads lol ? Main concern with a hunting car. Me and my buddy hauled 17 caracass coons once to the fur buyer in a Pontiac Bonneville.

$9 Mora knife from Murdochs. When my Benchmade got dull I grabbed it out of a friends pack and dang if it didn't work wonders. I bought 2 blaze orange ones in town the next day. They are carbon steel not stainless so you do have to take care so they don't rust

Wrangler Outdoors stretch pants...basically Prana Zion but like $20

Zeiss conquest 3-9*40 MC scope. They were $299 new a few decades ago. Now they go for around $400 on eBay and GB. I have 3 of them and the glass is still incredible! Brighter and lighter than my VX5 and and vortex scopes.
Also the Zeiss Terra binos are way above others at their price point.

There is a lot of 32 Degree stuff from Costco that is very impressive especially in the jackets and pants.
Also Tyvek for a ground cloth/meat tarp is awesome.

MoraKniv's for the Field. I have two with orange handles. I used to have a Benchmade Hidden Canyon that I love but left somewhere in Montana with its leather sheath. I now use the MoraKnivs that I got for under $30.

I use Victorinox Boning knife for processing at home.

Meopta and Kowa for glass. Get alpha level glass and save a couple thousand.
