Daily Gear Deals & ODAT

So what do you think of the new blog theme? It’s still a work in progress. And you can rest assured knowing that we have mad plans 😉

One of the newest features of the updated OGEBlog is the Daily Gear Deals page. That page just posted this morning. This area of OGEblog has a list of “Daily Deal” or “One Deal At a Time” (ODAT) offers from several of the top retailers on the web including and REI. The coolest thing about each of these offers is that you can subscribe to their respective RSS feeds, effectively getting the hugely discounted product info & price delivered to you (instead of coming here to see the latest deals, not that we don’t want you here but let’s be reasonable).

At any rate, check out the new Daily Gear Deals page. It’s linked up from the main navigation on top of the page, and above in this post. Once you click on a specific store name you’ll see the up-to-the-minute current deal and an RSS subscription option. Learn more about RSS feeds here..

Happy discount shopping from…

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!

More 2008 Burton Ready to Ship

New to stock 2008 Burton products are starting to make their rounds to respected web stores from coast to coast (and around the globe for that matter). As we mentioned back on August 2nd, (BTW all Backcountry Stores are having their semi annual sale right now – yep, up to 70% off retail through September 3rd) was the first retailer to stock 2008 Burton Snowboards and Gear. They seem to somehow beat all the others to the punch with Burton. But more merchants are starting to fill the warehouse with the products from the top snowboard brand on the planet.

So here’s a quick note to let ya’ll know that ProBoardShop is now ready to ship 08 Burton gear as well. Compare prices on Burton at OGE to see who has the best buy on the latest and greatest products. Snow season is quickly approaching. We’re through the hottest months of the summer so nowz the time to start thinking about the gear you need for the steep and deep conditions of winter. We had a hellish heat wave of a summer here in Utah so I think I can speak for everyone at OGE when I say bring on the POW.

Yosemite in the Sixties by Glen Denny

Pretty cool: Now at Patagonia, find Glen Denny’s extraordinary book of rare black-and-white photographs of Yosemite Valley climbers. Originally inspired by the work of Ansel Adams, Denny quickly mastered the effects of light on rock but his special gift is for these portraits of climbers in their element, for revealing the climber’s face in the unselfconscious moment of obsession on a route, of pleasure in camp, of awe to be in such a place. He conveys the culture of Camp 4 in the sixties as well as the spirit of the big-wall climbs. Many of these photographs have never before been published.

Alta Ski Patroller Sam Howard

Johnny B has done it again for AltaCam! The Alta, Utah community site has launched another interview in the Alta Personalities Podcast series featuring Little Cottonwood Canyon locals, ski icons and Alta Ski Area management personnel. To wit: The interview before this one was Johnny and Onno Wieringa, The Alta Ski Area General Manager.

For those who don’t know Sam Howard he’s a long-time Alta ski patroller who was named one of the top 50 skiers in North America a few years ago. He’s smooth as butter and a blast to try and keep up with! The young hot skiers don’t have a chance keeping his pace across the High Traverse and some of the steepest lines at Alta. Here’s a quote from the interview transcript:

I thought it felt weak and so we ski-cut across and we ski-cut back and it released to the ground on me. And I grabbed a tree and the whole thing peeled out around me and I was able to just hang on to that. You know, lost my ski poles and some other stuff. But, there’s a lot of times when avalanches make you scared and it doesn’t necessarily mean being involved in it.

You can read the transcript while you listen to the MP3 podcast of this interview at AltaCam: Sam Howard Interview & Podcast

Subscribe to AltaCam’s Podcast RSS feed to be notified when a new interview has been added to the site. Enjoy this interview with an Alta skiing legend!

Merchant Categories for OGEBlog?

Quick post to pose a question for ya’ll. If there actually is a ‘ya’ll’ out there I’ll be thrilled. Even if you’re our sole reader, please…let us know what you think (Email or leave a comment on this post).

Should we include merchant categories on the OGEBlog? Merchant promotions, featured product groups (check out Fleece Jackets for example) and their related outdoor industry news are just a few themes that we could tag for one of the OGE Merchants (60+).

In fact I’m going to go ahead and post a killer coupon for the rest of March next and build the first merchant category. So that’s that!
