What is Black Friday?

Black Friday comes the day after Thanksgiving. Since the 1950s it’s grown and grown to become the biggest day in the commercial calendar for retailers, and combined with Cyber Monday which follows it, it’s the best weekend to start looking for some bargain deals.

When is Black Friday 2017?

Black Friday is on November 24 2017, while Cyber Monday is November 27 2017.

In case you’re looking ahead, Black Friday 2018 falls on November 23, and Black Friday 2019 will fall on November 29.

Earlier this year we tested the Arc’teryx Cerium LT Down Jacket and were impressed enough to award it 4.5 stars, so we recommend swooping on Cotswold Outdoor’s Black Friday deal where they’re offering a big reduction, taking the jacket down from £280 to £140.

Away from jackets, you can pick up the Mountain Equipment Wet and Dry 40L duffel for £30 (down from £85). Mountain Equipment’s take on the ever reliable duffel is made from a mega durable, 1000 denier fabric that’s also waterproof. It has reinforced carrying straps plus a number of useful pockets and storage spaces –with one designed specifically for your damp kit. You’ll also find reduced prices for the 70L and the 100L versions also.

We were impressed by the 2016 model of the Suunto Traverse GPS watch and the latest version of it is supposed to be even better. In the run up to Black Friday, Go Outdoors are selling it for £199 (£229 for non-members), a big saving on the original RRP of £285.
