Outdoor Gear Engine v3.0

We’re psyched to bring you the latest (v3.0) version of (OGE)! Pretty nifty new layout, and functionality, is now available at our outdoor gear comparison site & search engine. You can still just as easily (maybe easier, even!) compare prices on the products you need, as well as search a robust and proprietary database of nearly 500,000 products from 70 of the web’s top rated outdoor stores.

OGE  has always been a unique and powerful resource, in that it’s exclusively dedicated to gear and apparel. But now it’s even more powerful. Search from any page on the site, find gear deals, review products or stores, and even subscribe to an array of RSS feeds dedicated to promotional offers, or new merchant notifications. Note that we’re continually adding more stores to the database.

The outdoor blog you’re on now is next on the update list. Keep an eye out for a flashy new WordPress theme here, as well as some killer new plugins and tools to help you save some bucks when you’re shopping online for your outdoor equipment needs.

Check out the new site, or start your search below (for example type in North Face Denali and click “Search Gear”, then sort by “Product Price” by clicking the column header on the results…and you’ll see the best prices on the world’s most popular popular fleece jacket). Don’t pull the trigger until you’ve looked through all your options in terms of pricing and selection. Enjoy!
