This Black Friday, we think buying gear to get outside is so much better than a crappy DVD player from some big box store you have to fight for with tooth and nail. We would rather fight the elements than crazed holiday shoppers. You have to think of friends and family, sure*, but we also think you have been pretty damn good this year and should use your pro deal to treat yourself (quickly, and then get outside). For some inspiration, here are the three items each of us here at OPL would most like from the site:

* we are running a friends and family sale on Sierra Designs, Kelty and Slumberjack right now until Dec. 3rd at 6:00pm, plus you can buy Isis Clothing for family all year long
