spy-discordIn the 80s hair bands topped the charts, neon cloth­ing shocked the streets, and a Hol­ly­wood actor lived in the White House. It was a bold time in Amer­i­can life, a time when things got big, bright, and bois­ter­ous. The Spy Dis­cord not only pays the 80s homage, but they belong on the shelf at a Woolworths.

The burly plas­tic frames are like your favorite pair of gas sta­tion shades. Throw them in your week­end duf­fel with­out a case, no prob­lem. But these aren’t cheap, beat­er shades. They have a sophis­ti­cat­ed six-base PC polar­ized lens that cuts through glares, from the sun or from poindex­ters. The dark tint keeps your eyes in a UV-free shad­ow. So you can kiss squint­ing good­bye, and say hel­lo to that Mar­ty McFly cool of the future.

SPY: The design for SPY sun­glass­es and gog­gles stems from a pas­sion for surf­ing, snow­board­ing, ski­ing, and rac­ing bicy­cles. The result is styl­ish, func­tion­al eye­wear that can endure a lot of abuse.

MiiR: In a mar­ket sat­u­rat­ed by ubiq­ui­tous style and mediocre design, MiiR stain­less steel bot­tles stand out as unique. For every bot­tle sold, the brand pro­vides one per­son with clean water for a year.

Worlds Largest Laun­dry Machine: Did you know? On Sep­tem­ber 18 (that’s today!), 1870, mem­bers of the Wash­burn-Lang­ford-Doane Expe­di­tion that sur­veyed the region that would lat­er become Yel­low­stone Nation­al Park, coined the name, “Old Faith­ful.” Shoot­ing up to 8,400 gal­lons of boil­ing water sky­wards at heights exceed­ing 185 feet, the geyser was­n’t orig­i­nal­ly a tourist attrac­tion. The now-icon­ic sym­bol of the Amer­i­can West first served as a laun­dry mat for ear­ly set­tlers. Sound crazy? It is! But it worked. The set­tlers would dump their laun­dry into the cav­ernous open­ing and wait for the pre­dictable blast of boil­ing water, which would both clean their cloth­ing and scat­ter it all over tarnation.

PROBAR: While cut­ting slices of Kiel­basa and cheese with a dubi­ous­ly clean mul­ti­tool then toss­ing them on some sog­gy crack­ers will for­ev­er be the ulti­mate sus­te­nance-based rite of pas­sage in back­pack­ing, the final prod­uct is far from the health­i­est option. If ever there was a polar oppo­site to the moun­tain man­wich, it’s the PROBAR organ­ic food bar. Hunger-destroy­ing bars made from all-nat­ur­al, 100% veg­an organ­ic ingre­di­ents, PROBAR prod­ucts fill the trail-weary up on pure nutri­tion­al good­ness, leav­ing them with a skip in their steps instead of a brick in their bel­lies. Bring the raw food move­ment to the trail with cas­es of PROBAR, avail­able now on The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Lone­ly Plan­et: (Amer­i­c­as, Asia, Europe) From remote vil­lages to bustling cities, Lone­ly Plan­et trav­el guides pro­vide inde­pen­dent, on-the-ground, analy­sis of the best places on the plan­et to vis­it. Today, The Clymb is proud to offer mem­ber-exclu­sive pric­ing on near­ly 100 dif­fer­ent titles fea­tur­ing loca­tions in the Amer­i­c­as, Europe, and Asia.

SPY: SPY came into being in the ear­ly-to-mid ‘90s as the brain­child of a group of over-achiev­ing ath­letes and design freaks seek­ing new per­spec­tive through the lens of tech­ni­cal eye­wear. SPY’s patent­ed anti-fog­ging frame tech­nol­o­gy was born from its founders’ pas­sion for surf­ing, snow­board­ing, ski­ing, and rac­ing bicy­cles. Keep a clear eye with SPY sun­glass­es, on sale now at The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Top O’ The World to Ye: Did you know? On May 29 (that’s today!), 1953, Edmund Hillary and Ten­zig Nor­gay made moun­taineer­ing his­to­ry when they became the first to reach the sum­mit of Mount Ever­est. Accounts of the mon­u­men­tal event fail to address which, if either, of the men was the first to see how far he could spit off the top.

As we approach one mil­lion mem­bers, we’re look­ing back on what we set out to accom­plish and who helped us get there. Of course, there are our loy­al mem­bers who are pas­sion­ate about the out­doors, and there are our brand part­ners. These com­pa­nies not only have a long his­to­ry of mak­ing some of the best gear and appar­el on the plan­et, they sup­port ath­letes in their endeav­ors and are respon­si­ble glob­al cit­i­zens by lead­ing and sup­port­ing orga­ni­za­tions that strive to keep our envi­ron­ment safe and clean, and by imple­ment­ing sus­tain­able busi­ness practices.

The brands we fea­ture today are no excep­tion and just a small sam­pling of the many amaz­ing brands we are proud to offer our members.

More than fifty years ago, Ed Scott rev­o­lu­tion­ized ski­ing by invent­ing the first alu­minum ski pole. Today, SCOTT is at the fore­front of tech­nol­o­gy with excep­tion­al snow out­er­wear. Shop a selec­tion of SCOTT snow out­er­wear for men and women here.

Also rich in his­to­ry, Gre­go­ry designs back­packs that pro­vide a com­fort­able fit and are made from the best mate­ri­als to ensure dura­bil­i­ty. It all start­ed when Wayne Gre­go­ry was just 14 and designed his first back­pack for a Boy Scout project. Cur­rent­ly, Gre­go­ry is the only pack man­u­fac­tur­er to devel­op a waist-belt sys­tem that adjusts to fit dif­fer­ent hip angles, auto­mat­i­cal­ly improv­ing load trans­fer. Their Clymb debut fea­tures men’s and women’s sin­gle and mul­ti-day packs.

Teko set out to make the best per­for­mance socks with the least envi­ron­men­tal impact. Con­sid­er­ing they are the offi­cial sock of the Freeride World Tour 2012 and they’re con­stant­ly improv­ing upon ways to leave a small­er car­bon foot­print from design, pro­duc­tion, and ship­ment, we’d say they’ve done just that! Teko returns to The Clymb with a selec­tion of trekking, hik­ing, and ski­ing socks.

Final­ly, because we love giv­ing you guys lots of vari­ety, shop a Gog­gles & Gloves event fea­tur­ing your favorite brands.  Acces­sorize with VonZip­per, SPY, Elec­tric, Gran­doe, Kom­bi, POW, and more!

Every brand event fea­tured on The Clymb is eli­gi­ble for our lim­it­ed-time flat rate ship­ping of $4.98. If you add a The Clymb t‑shirt to your cart, your entire order will ship for free!

As we approach our one mil­lionth mem­ber, remem­ber to vis­it us on Face­book for fun give­aways and don’t for­get: we’re giv­ing the mil­lionth mem­ber $1,000 to The Clymb and if you’ve referred that mem­ber, you’ll get $1,000 too! Offi­cial rules here.

If you need an invi­ta­tion to join The Clymb, they’re also good places to get one.

Two brands in our first event of the week, start­ing with Cloud­veil. They dared to think “out of the box” when it came to func­tion­al design, fab­ri­ca­tion, and inno­va­tion and the result is Inspired Moun­tain Appar­el test­ed in and inspired by alpine climb­ing and the back­coun­try ski­ing play­ground of Jack­son Hole.

NOW we have bikes.

Are you a cyclist because reduc­ing your car­bon foot­print is impor­tant to you? Do you pre­fer to com­mute to work on two wheels? Does trav­el­ing by bike make you feel more engaged in the world as you go?

Hope­ful­ly you all are recov­er­ing nice­ly after last night’s game. Either you’re extreme­ly hap­py with the results, extreme­ly dis­ap­point­ed, or extreme­ly indif­fer­ent and you just want to know what kind of deal we’re offer­ing up over the next few days. So, I’ll get to it.

Mem­bers of The Clymb will receive up to 55% off Kel­ty packs, campers, tents and sleep­ing bags. We have a selec­tion of gear that will appeal to the young scout, young adult and the sea­soned camper. They are the epit­o­me of tran­si­tion, dura­bil­i­ty, and warmth.

Through your Twit­ter, Face­book, and blog out­reach I know that it’s pret­ty dis­ap­point­ing when an item from a brand you love goes quick­ly. We try to give a 24-hour heads up on what the brand(s) will be, but a great thing to remem­ber is that the events always go live on Mon­days and Thurs­days at 9amPST/12pm EST. So, if you haven’t been online in a bit and missed a Tweet or Face­book post, just jump on the site short­ly after those two days/times and see what we’re offer­ing up. And if you’re out and about and unable to place an order via your mobile device (it hap­pens), remem­ber that our cus­tomer ser­vice reps are stand­ing by and will­ing to take your orders over the phone to ensure you get the out­door appar­el and gear you need.

For the peo­ple who are read­ing this and vis­it­ing us for the first time, you need to be a mem­ber to access these events, but mem­ber­ship is free and we’re always will­ing to hook you up with an invi­ta­tion if you let us know you need one via Twit­ter, Face­book, or by com­ment­ing below.
