The North Face Professional

I read on this site before that The North Face offers a professional discount, but I dont believe there was a link posted. I was able to locate the link and signed up. I was accepted in as a SWAT sniper so I really doubt any QP's would have difficulty being accepted.

They will require you to write a small paragraph detialing why your job would be made easier with the use of North Face gear.

Products are offered at 50-60% off their regular price.

this has been getting heavy circulation, I have seen it on two others forums as well.

BTW: I am a member, but I wonder how long it will last since it has gone viral. Oakley does the same sort of thing, but their products are allowed in the conventional Army. The northface, albeit I have some of their products, are not authorized on my side of the fence. More power to the white and black SOF though, this is a good deal.

I will use it while I can.

BTW: My white and black reference was to job description, not race, gender, color, religion or national origin. (EO NCO speaking )

Pro Deals have been around as long as rock apes have needed sponsors. Apparently back in the day, poor climbers would simply write letters to companies "begging" for gear and since word of mouth is the best commercial, companies often sent out samples of products looking for input.

3point5 has pro deals on these brands

promotive has pro deals available to Mil, LEO, FF, and AAI guides

I'm a Mountain Hardwear whore (IMO, their gear is high quality and cheaper than TNF and Arc'teryx) so here's their pro deal too. I also am a huge fan of La Sportiva and they are a part of Outdoor Prolink.

Ahh...so much gear and only 26 pay periods each year.

Mountain Hardwear is also a big supporter. I set up the prodeal program with my unit in the past but they have gone and made it easier. As long as you have an active AKO account you can join the program. It takes a day or two to verify but the prices are worth it.

Patagonia has a pro program as well as Arc'Teryx, military is GTG, though they tend to be pretty far left enviro-whackos. The stuff from Arc'Teryx is incredibly expensive, even with the discount.

Hitting the Submit Application button sends you to their sign up page. No need for a code.

OR asks for an email address, and a code. If you are able to click through without a code, I am missing how you are doing it.

Thanks for the assist.

I'm thinking promotive is a middle man for OR. Their site:
http://www.promotive.com/action/broformRegistration
allows you to sign up with out a code (even though they have an entry field for it).

edited to add that I got promotive.com from OR's help page.

The stuff from Arcteryx is incredibly good, I've been using an Alpha jacket from their Leaf programm for a few years and it's the best I've ever had. I put it through heavy use, wearing it on a daily basis in autumn and winter, in the forests where I often have to crawl through thorns and dense undergrowth, it takes a pretty bad abuse and it is still in a top condition.

Lately www.amronintl.com had interesting prices on the arcteryx stuff.

Check this one out as well....

http://www.steepandcheap.com

Its ran through backcountry.com and they have some phenominal deals.

They offer a limited number of a certain product for 30 min at a huge discount....then it changes. I've purchased several items from here.

Try www.chainlove.com for Mtn Bike gear and www.tramdock.com for ski/snowboarding

I'll have to echo the Arcteryx LEAF program. Great great gear, still made in Canada. Got me a Alpha Jacket. Still very expensive (paid 600$) but you get what you pay for.

Also if you're in Canada, Glock has a 'professional' program too. If you're LEO/MIL/Pilot/Firefighter/etc you can get a G17RTF2 for under 500$ which is about a 200$-250$ rebate.
