‘Tis the season – with Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals looming in the near future, here’s a handy guide to navigating the sales if you’re shopping for a loved one (or yourself!) who enjoys an active lifestyle, indoors or out.

I own many of the items featured in this guide, and can attest to their longevity and functionality.
