DAKINE

Mon­day may mean back to the grind, but it also means back to a full week of exclu­sive events. This week we’re start­ing off with:

Brun­ton: In 1894, Brun­ton cre­at­ed a pock­et com­pass that freed out­doors­men from bulky equip­ment. See how they con­tin­ue to inno­vate in our col­lec­tion of com­pass­es, back­coun­try solar-pow­er sys­tems, and more.

Sum­mer Sun­glass­es: Don’t let work­ing for the man break your spir­its. You can look boss even if you’re a grunt this sum­mer with a new pair of bold shades from SPY, Drag­on, Anar­chy, & more.

Every­day Essen­tials: A grab bag of good­ness, this fun col­lec­tion fea­tures a vari­ety of acces­sories includ­ing wal­lets, belts, watch­es, and more by top brands such as Suun­to, DAKINE, and Timberland.

Today’s events are bet­ter than dis­cov­er­ing an unopened bag of beef jerky at the bot­tom of your sleep­ing bag.

Here’s what we’ve got…

Saucony Appar­el: Remem­ber Char­lie and the Choco­late Fac­to­ry? Imag­ine that fac­to­ry as a real place. Only instead of can­dy, it’s full of run­ning shoes and appar­el. And instead of Oom­pa Loom­pas singing, it’s full of run­ning experts design­ing per­for­mance shoes and appar­el for peo­ple who take run­ning as seri­ous­ly as they do. That’s where Saucony appar­el comes from. Get the gold­en tick­et to a more com­fort­able run with Men’s and Women’s Saucony run­ning shorts, jack­ets, base­lay­ers, pants, gloves, and more, on sale at The Clymb today for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Suun­to for Women: The future of fit­ness tech­nol­o­gy is now with Suun­to M‑Series heart rate mon­i­tors. The devices help you stick to an active lifestyle by offer­ing per­son­al­ized train­ing advice and encour­ag­ing mes­sages each morn­ing. Even cooler—they’ll auto­mat­i­cal­ly adapt to your work­out pro­gram if you miss a ses­sion. A gen­tle nudge from a kind­ly wrist robot? Yes, we will. Embrace the future with Women’s Suun­to M‑Series heart rate mon­i­tors, on sale today at The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Nideck­er: Nideck­er is cel­e­brat­ed by snows­port orga­ni­za­tions and mag­a­zines the world over. One of the orig­i­nal snow­board brands, it has won numer­ous awards, includ­ing the 2010 EUROSIMA Life­time Achieve­ment Award giv­en to Hen­ry Nideck­er Sr. for his many con­tri­bu­tions to the devel­op­ment and growth of snow­board­ing. Hav­ing a fac­to­ry locat­ed in the heart of Switzer­land gives the Nideck­er team con­ve­nient, envi­able access to some of the best moun­tains in the world to test prod­ucts, which they do, with gus­to, with only one goal in mind: to make sure only the very best, most fierce­ly test­ed, boards make it out the door. Yodel-Le-He-Shred it up with Men’s, Women’s and kids’ Nideck­er snow­boards and bind­ings, on sale today at The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

PLUS… There’s still time to save on Men’s & Women’s Footwear, Brooks Run­ning, SPY, Some­thing for Every Sea­son: Our Biggest Sale of the Year, Gre­go­ry, & Lole.

A Creek Runs Through it: Did you know? Saucony’s name­sake is Saucony Creek, upon the banks of which the com­pa­ny was found­ed in Kutz­town, Penn­syl­va­nia in 1898. The Saucony logo—a wave of red wash­ing over three dis­tinct dots—represents the end­less flow of water over the boul­der-strewn creek bed.

Show of hands: how many of you got up at the butt crack of dawn in search of Black Fri­day sales?

Hap­py Mon­day, everyone.

We want to kick off the week by extend­ing a spe­cial thank you to all of our mem­bers for mak­ing our Give $10, Get $10 week so suc­cess­ful. You real­ly went above and beyond send­ing out your invi­ta­tions and sign­ing up your fam­i­ly and friends. Now, because you’ve shown such faith in us, we want to make sure we live up to it by con­tin­u­ing to pro­vide you with great sav­ings on qual­i­ty out­door gear and apparel.

It’s begin­ning to feel like tra­di­tion, kick­ing off SUUNTO events on a Mon­day. Start­ing today at 9am PST, all mem­bers will receive up to 55% off SUUNTO pre­ci­sion instru­ments for men and women. SUUNTO has a her­itage in pro­vid­ing reli­able sports instru­ments for div­ing, train­ing, hik­ing, moun­taineer­ing, ski­ing, sail­ing and golf. This event ends on Thurs­day (7/22) at 9am PST, so don’t miss out.

If you need a mem­ber­ship, the best way to get one is by send­ing us a tweet or check­ing out the info sec­tion of our Face­book page.

Here’s a great moti­va­tor: Greg Hill uses his SUUNTO instru­ment to cel­e­brate a halfway point milestone. 

We just want­ed to remind every­one that today is the last day of the Suun­to brand event. A cou­ple of mod­els have sold out so make sure you act quickly.

Sure we want­ed to remind you about the event but we also want­ed an excuse to post anoth­er Suun­to video.

Mak­ing a hat-trick of records, Swiss alpin­ist and Suun­to ambas­sador Ueli Steck has claimed fastest times for solo ascend­ing the north faces of Eiger (in Switzer­land), Grandes Jorass­es (locat­ed between France and Italy) and Mat­ter­horn (between Italy and Switzer­land). Ueli climbed on the Eiger and Grandes Jorass­es dur­ing 2008 and on the Mat­ter­horn in ear­ly 2009. Watch the high­lights of these amaz­ing record break­ing ascents:

In Sep­tem­ber Steck com­plet­ed an expe­di­tion up Makalu, which is 8463m above sea lev­el where he bat­tled intense frost­bite on his feet. It was an amaz­ing ascent to the top made even more impres­sive by the phys­i­cal impact it had on Ueli’s body and how he over­came the adversity.

So why are we talk­ing about Steck? (Besides his amaz­ing accom­plish­ments?) One of Steck­’s equip­ment spon­sors is Suun­to, they hap­pen to be the com­pa­ny behind our brand event this week. Tomor­row start­ing at 9am PST we will launch the Suun­to brand event. We encour­age you to log on to the site ear­ly as some mod­els will sell out quickly.

Remem­ber in order to view the event you need to be a Clymb mem­ber. If you are inter­est­ed in a mem­ber­ship invi­ta­tion, please con­tact me direct­ly, kevin.p [at] the­clymb [dot] com.
