Why do I get these incredible discounts?
Outdoor Industry professionals use and abuse outdoor gear every day for their jobs, so it’s natural that their clients and community defer to them for gear recommendations. It is worth it for our manufacturers to offer a significant discount to these influencers.

What do you accept as supporting material?
How long is my account valid?
Your account is valid for 15 months. You always have the opportunity to renew your account if you are still working in the industry.
How does Outdoor Prolink approve a person for a discount?
Our membership team reviews every application individually and then approves or denies the application using the approval criteria given to us by each manufacturer. Since your access is determined by what you do in the industry, you might have access to one manufacturer but not another. For example, a canoe outfitter may not qualify for discounts on avalanche transceivers, and a whitewater guide may qualify for dry bags but not mountaineering boots. If you are a whitewater guide in the summer and a mountain guide in the fall, though, you'd qualify for both. All of our decisions are based on what the manufacturers tell us, not our own personal evaluation of your résumé.
Can I order equipment for my friends and family?
No. You get these great deals because of your influence in the industry, so this program is for you only (not your girlfriend, buddy or climbing partner). If we suspect that you have ordered gear for anyone other than yourself, we reserve the right to suspend your account or permanently ban you from the site. Pro deal abuse is a serious issue and we have taken many measures to avoid it on Outdoor Prolink. Please respect the brands that are offering you these deals by keeping your pro deal to yourself.
Our company wants to set up a group account, what should we do?
Outdoor Prolink offers individual accounts that are verified by the employer. We do not offer group accounts, but we do offer a simple solution to help your staff apply with ease. For simplicity's sake, companies can send a roster of all their employee's names and emails to our membership team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we receive your roster, we will send out sign-up instructions to everyone on the roster with a special code that will count as verification for your staff members.
Can I order equipment for my company?
We are able to place organizational orders with some brands, but
I used to be a guide, but now I have a 'real job', will I qualify?
Outdoor Prolink is for paid outdoor professionals, not outdoor enthusiasts. We understand that many people are passionate about their outdoor activities, and have considerable influence on their friend’s purchases, even if they are not working as an outdoor professional. However, because of the restrictions placed on the program by our manufacturers, these people will not be permitted into the program.
How are your shipping costs calculated?
All orders are dropped shipped directly from our manufacturer partners. The shipping costs that we pass on to our customers are a direct reflection of the shipping fees charged to us by the manufacturers we represent. Shipping is not part of our profit margin. We will do all we can to keep this number as low as possible (especially on orders with multiple items from the same manufacturer). Shipping costs are subject to change on large orders after the order is submitted.
