Wel­come back, Clym­bers. It’s Thurs­day and already Clymb HQ is abuzz with antic­i­pa­tion about this week­end’s shin-dig to cel­e­brate our reach­ing one mil­lion mem­bers. Will a col­league sur­prise all with his or her unfor­get­table dance moves? Will there be scan­dal? All water-cool­er bets on these mat­ters will soon be resolved in a show­er of free alco­hol, awe­some music, and shame­less self-con­grat­u­la­tion. We could­n’t have got­ten here with­out you though, which is why the deals will keep com­ing and con­tin­ue to get sweet­er. The week­end isn’t upon us yet but there’s plen­ty for every­one to be excit­ed about with today’s events.

Here’s what we’ve got going on:

prAna: With a name appro­pri­ate­ly based on the ancient San­skrit word for breath, life, and vital­i­ty of the spir­it, prAna designs appar­el for mind­ful recre­ation­ists who seek to explore the lim­its of their own ener­gy through yoga and inter­ac­tions with the nat­ur­al world. For prAna ath­letes like Chris Shar­ma, climb­ing is a thing of med­i­ta­tion, not con­quest. Seek bal­ance in your life and your adven­ture kit with prAna Men’s and Women’s appar­el (tees, hats, hood­ies, and more), and acces­sories (tow­els, satchels, cadets, and more), on sale today at The Clymb. 

Craft: In the begin­ning, Craft founder Anders Bengts­son spent an inor­di­nate amount of time look­ing at his under­wear. After heavy exer­cise ses­sions out­side his home in Borås, Swe­den, Bengsts­son would weigh his skivvies and use a mois­ture gauge to mea­sure how sweaty they were. He used his research to devel­op the ide­al lay­er to wear next to the skin—a gar­ment that trans­ports mois­ture out­wards with as lit­tle absorp­tion into the fibers as pos­si­ble. The result­ing brand, Craft, is now a glob­al leader in all types of peak-per­for­mance ath­let­ic appar­el. Today on The Clymb we’re cel­e­brat­ing yet anoth­er exam­ple of Swedish inge­nu­ity with Men’s and Women’s Craft cycling, run­ning, and fit­ness appar­el, includ­ing base­lay­ers, jack­ets, shorts, bibs, gloves, socks, sin­glets, and much more.

Craft run­ning prod­ucts in action


CELSIUS: The founders behind San Diego-based CELSIUS launched the brand in 2003 with one sim­ple goal: to trans­late the com­fort and feel of their favorite skate shoes to per­for­mance footwear designed for the shred. Near­ly a decade lat­er, the com­pa­ny has built a strong com­mu­ni­ty and devel­oped a rep­u­ta­tion for blend­ing sub­stance, style, and com­fort. In 2009, CELSIUS was hon­ored with a Boot of the Year award from Snow­board mag­a­zine. Award-win­ning, home­grown boots? On the cheap? Don’t miss out. Today on The Clymb we’ve got Men’s and Women’s CELSIUS snow­board boots.

Salomon: The mighty Dolomite Moun­tain region in north­ern Italy is a renowned alpine mec­ca for skiers, moun­tain bik­ers, BASE jumpers, hik­ers, climbers, and peak-peep­ers of all shapes and sizes. But it’s also known for some­thing else: socks. Salomon per­for­mance socks are designed and knit­ted in the Dolomites, where test­ing prod­uct is as fun as it is pro­duc­tive. Today on The Clymb we’re hap­py to offer a lit­tle taste of out­door Italy, with Salomon Men’s and Women’s per­for­mance run, bike and snow socks, on sale now.

MEDITATE ON THIS: Did you know? Dur­ing the hum­ble begin­nings of prAna (now a mul­ti-mil­lion dol­lar com­pa­ny), the founders cut and sewed cloth­ing in their garage and shipped it to cus­tomers in sur­plus fruit box­es gath­ered from the local gro­cery store. They made hash­tags from a con­coc­tion of oil and ground-up old news­pa­pers that they then cut it into shape with a piz­za cut­ter. And their first employ­ee slept on a hinged bed that by day dou­bled as a ship­ping table.

Two weeks ago, we were excit­ed when the VG Crew released an ear­ly teas­er trail­er of their upcom­ing 2012 pro­duc­tion, The Dark Side. It fea­tures the slick moves of some of the best snow­board­ers around. It got even bet­ter when we learned that one of the spon­sors of the film is CELSIUS snowboards.

It makes per­fect sense when you con­sid­er CELSIUS’ own snow­board­ing team fea­tures the likes of Bar­ry Hart­man, Bil­lie Mack­ey, Derek Den­ni­son, and more. Whether you’re get­ting after it at the local park, the back­coun­try, or city streets, CELSIUS is com­mit­ted to giv­ing you what you need. Slip into a pair of their boots, high on sub­stance and style here. 

If you’ve got dri­er plans on the hori­zon — camp­ing under the stars, maybe —  our spe­cial Sat­ur­day Kel­ty event will get you out­doors in con­fi­dence. Six­ty years of expe­ri­ence pro­vid­ing pre­mi­um out­door gear has come to The Clymb with tents, sleep­ing bags, pack, car­ri­ers, and more.

Final­ly, we asked our Face­book fans what was the FIRST thing they looked for when shop­ping per­for­mance eye­wear. The major­i­ty chose a durable frame that can with­stand their human-pow­ered adven­tures. Of course, we want you to have it all: dura­bil­i­ty, great styles, inno­v­a­tive lens­es, and light­weight com­fort. That’s why we’re fea­tur­ing a spe­cial Per­for­mance Eye­wear event fea­tur­ing O’Neill, Kaenon, Native, Zeal, and more!

Cred­it: Kaenon Eyewear
