6-Hour Power Deal Preview: Saturday, November 23


This year, the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season is a full week later than it was last year (November 29 vs November 23). Since that means one less week of holiday shopping time, at Eastern Mountain Sports we’ve decided to start our Black Friday Sale along with our 6-Hour Power Deals on Saturday, November 23. Just like the name implies, we post an awesome new deal every six hours every day thru December 2. These deals are pretty popular but while surprises are always nice when you’re getting gifts, we know how important planning ahead is when you’re buying gifts.

That’s right, ALL packs with an EMS logo on them are 30% off TOMORROW only. That’s almost as good as my employee discount and it applies to the Prez pack above which was built to the exacting standards of our climb school guides.

NOON – 6PM An Extra 10% off all Leatherman Multitools

I know what you’re thinking: “A multitool? Isn’t that kind of a cop out gift?” Not when you think of all the places you’ve WISHED you had a bottle opener, knife or pair of pliers.    When you get right down to it, a multitool is one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give someone and between the car, the backpack, the briefcase, the tackle box and the emergency kit, no matter how many multitools your favorite adventurer has, there’s always room for one more. Especially when it’s a Leatherman at an extra 10% off!

6PM – MIDNIGHT Extra 10% off all EMS Pants

Far too often, we gift givers put too much pressure on ourselves to find something “creative” that the person we’re buying for would “never think to buy for themselves.” I’m all for creativity, but sometimes you’ve just got to get something that your loved one will always need. Whether you choose water resistant, quick-drying pants or zip-offs that quickly convert into shorts, you can’t go wrong with a practical pair of EMS pants.
