Another week and two more brand events. (Just an FYI Thursday is going to be heavily about gear.) Today we kick off our Gramicci event where you can save up to 60% off retail price on Gramicci apparel. As always this is for Clymb members only so if you need a membership give us a Tweet or visit our Facebook page.
Gramicci strongly believes in inspiring their customers to live an active lifestyle. They talk about inspiring people to ride to work more. While this video is a few years old I think it is a pretty interesting interview on how they combine function and style.
Stay tuned this week for a few videos from Cec’s trip to the Olympics!
Today we are proud to announce our brand event with Horny Toad, you can save between 60–65% off everything in the event! The event runs for three days and will end Thursday morning at 9am PST. As per usual we get to share a video that we think shows off the brand and is entertaining/useful to our members. For Horny Toad they made a company dance video. Yes… A company dance video. Awesome? Yes. Fun? No doubt. Is it making us limber up to make one of our own? I wouldn’t go that far yet. Although I heard Kelly does a mean running man. (Personally I prefer the cabbage patch.)
Like it says in the video description, “Work hard, play hard, create something special.”
As always you need to be a member of the Clymb, if you would like an invite to the event you can Tweet us or let us know on Facebook.
Everyone made it back from the Outdoor Retailer show in one piece. I heard from the people that attended from the Clymb that they had a great show. Of course they didn’t rub it in that much for those of us who didn’t attend. (Although when we post some recaps this week it probably will depress me a little.) We hope to release some information in the future about some of the partnerships we cultivated.
This week we are proud to announce our brand event with Mountain Khakis, one of the brands you asked for via a customer survey. (We do listen!) Starting today at 9am PST and running through Thursday morning at 9am PST we will be selling Mountain Khaki gear for up to 60% off of retail price. As always this is a members only event, if you would like a free membership please Tweet Us, connect with us on Facebook, or drop me an e‑mail: kevin. p (at) the clymb.com.
Two brand events in one week! One a scale of 1–10 we are easily a 10 right now, possibly an 11 even though that would technically break the scale. This is kind of historic for us, the first time we have held two events like this. Thanks to all our members new and old. We look forward to growing and offering you the best deals on outdoor gear that we can.
Our brand event, which started at 9am PST, is CamelBak! You can save up to 50% off CamelBack hydration systems. The event runs through Saturday at 9am PST. Like always you need to be a member to access the event. It is free to become a member. You can sign up through our special link this week. Remember $10 from every purchase is going to support Mercy Corps and their relief efforts in Haiti. (We encourage you to give directly as well.)
Here is a great video on how CamelBak tests their products.
I think this is totally interesting to see how they test product. It is great to see how serious they take the quality of what they put out. As they say in the video that if their product fails someone could get hurt. Beyond that though… how fun would this be? Inflating reservoirs to obscene levels seeing if when they will explode. Learning that you can unscrew a cap 40,000 times… I think I am in the wrong field.
Wow a lot to cover today. First off let me announce our new brand event this week, we are partnering with Outdoor Research and you can save up to 70% off a pretty wide selection of their gear. Like always this is members only and it runs through January 14th at 9am PST, if you need a membership you can contact us on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, or via E‑mail at kevin.p [@] theclymb.com (remove the brackets and smoosh it all together).
Personally I love the Outdoor Research brand events because I get to post videos with Phil Ershler from International Mountain Guides. Phil is super informative when it comes to how to layer and properly use equipment. Here is another one of his informative videos:
Now onto the results of our first ever Twitter contest. Here are the three people, drawn at random, to win $100 gift cards to the Clymb.
Congratulations to our winners and a mighty thank you to all that participated. We will be doing another contest down the road. So if you didn’t win you will have a chance to enact revenge and conquer those that did at a later date.
