A great hiking pack is lightweight, comfortable, plentiful with pockets, and has a back system that won't soak your tee-shirt. If you want all this, the price will certainly be high, so we recommend pouncing on this holiday as a chance to snag something special without breaking the bank.

Our top tips for coping with Black Friday:

Sign up for newsletters and updates

They might clog up your inbox for the rest of the year, but you’ll find that newsletters will bring you discounts and alerts about bargains before anything else.

You can also sign up to the LFTO Newsletter, where we'll keep you to date with our 'best of' articles and Black Friday deals.

Stick to your budget

You might be tempted into all and every deal that you see on Black Friday, but set a budget and stick to it. Experts also say that you should use a credit card (it’s the safest way to pay, as the bank will end up footing the bill if there is any kind of mishap).

Stick around afterwards...

Previously, waiting until Black Friday was one of the best strategies for saving money on big-ticket items, but recent years have taught us that many of the biggest online sales will come under the 'Cyber Monday' banner, which can last until the end of November. So, always keep your eyes peeled, the bargain hunt isn't quite over yet.
