Hello…De Soto: Did you know?

Sein­feld fans may remem­ber De Soto as George Cas­tan­za­’s favorite explor­er, though Sein­feld dis­miss­es his friends’ choice, say­ing, “Oh, like they would­n’t have found that anyway.”

Thanks to every­one who entered our Your Gear in Action pho­to con­test. Over 40 pho­tos were sub­mit­ted, all dis­play­ing Clymb-pur­chased gear in action. They were all great and much appre­ci­at­ed, but you know the say­ing, “There can only be one.” Well, in this case, three — three mem­bers have won a $50 cred­it to The Clymb. And they are:

Eri­ca Don­nel­ly in prAna

 

Jon Husen in Giro

And.…

 

Chris Lynn in KEEN

It was report­ed the oth­er day that 49 out of 50 states had snow on the ground. We’d be remiss if we did­n’t off up to 55% off GIRO gog­gles for all the ski­ing and snow­board­ing that’s sure to fol­low. We have great styles that are both ver­sa­tile and comfortable.

This mem­bers-only event kicks off today at 9am PST and runs for three days. If you need a mem­ber­ship, don’t hes­i­tate to hit us up on Face­book or Twit­ter and we’ll make it happen.

Oh, glo­ri­ous three-day week­end, how we love thee. The only thing we love more than three-day week­ends are exclu­sive hol­i­day mul­ti-brand events. Oh, and four-day weekends.

We can’t deliv­er on the lat­ter, but boy do we have an awe­some deal for you guys today.

You ready for this?

I don’t think you are, but I’ll tell you anyway.

Begin­ning today at 9am PST, you (yes, you, mem­bers of The Clymb) will receive exclu­sive sav­ings on gear and appar­el for men, women and kids, on a vari­ety of brands like:

  • Teva
  • Gram­ic­ci
  • Moun­tain­smith
  • GIRO
  • DAKINE
  • KEEN
  • Camel­Bak
  • Reef
  • and more, more, more.

Now, you may be ask­ing your­self, “What does exclu­sive pric­ing mean?” Well, I don’t toss around a word like “exclu­sive” all willy-nil­ly. For the first time ever we’re offer­ing up to 90% off. That’s right. I said it. And, because we’re awe­some like this, we’re reduc­ing ship­ping to $6.98 for this event.

The quan­ti­ties are extreme­ly lim­it­ed, so you can’t mess around; items will go quick­ly! The event ends on Sun­day (9/5) at 9am PST. If you need an invi­ta­tion so you can see what all the fuss is about (and get in on the sweet deals), just send us a tweet and we’ll make it happen.

Wow. An amaz­ing three-day event and a three-day week­end? You’re so welcome.

Has any­one done more for sun­glass­es than Giro? We don’t think so.

OK, maybe Tom Cruise in Risky Busi­ness. And Top Gun. And that one where he was toss­ing drinks in the air. Geez. That guy nev­er met a pair he did­n’t like, has he?

But enough about that guy. Let’s talk about mem­bers sav­ing up to 65% off Giro eye­wear start­ing today at 9am PST. We’re talk­ing all styles of sun­glass­es — the only ones in North Amer­i­ca made with Carl Zeiss tech­nol­o­gy. And while we’re at it, let’s talk about super low ship­ping on all these sun­glass­es — $6.98 flat ship­ping rate. Sounds good, right? We thought so, too.

This event ends on Sun­day, July 4th at 9am PST, so make sure you take advan­tage before you start cel­e­brat­ing the hol­i­day week­end. These will go fast. If you need a mem­ber­ship, send us a tweet or check out the info sec­tion on our Face­book page for an invite.

Here’s a cool video show­ing the mak­ing of a Zeiss lens for Giro:

- Every­one at The Clymb hopes you all have a fun and safe hol­i­day weekend.

Giro is the world­wide leader in high per­for­mance gear — sun­glass­es, hel­mets, gloves, gog­gles and oth­er acces­sories. What sets Giro apart from oth­er com­pa­nies is their ded­i­ca­tion to design­ing prod­ucts that look and feel like a part of you. Their per­for­mance sun­glass­es are the only ones in North Amer­i­ca using Carl Zeiss lens­es; pic­ture per­fect optics result­ing from over 150 years of advanced research.

Mem­bers of The Clymb can receive up to 65% off Giro per­for­mance sun­glass­es start­ing today at 9am PST thru Thurs­day (5/20) at 9am PST. For more infor­ma­tion on how to become a mem­ber, vis­it our Face­book page.
