Outdoor Prolink | Our Commitment to Outdoor Retailers

Outdoor Prolink is made up of three core components - verified outdoor industry professionals, the brands that offer discounted gear to them, and specialty retailers. A responsible, well-executed pro purchase program fosters a relationship between local shops and pros, and educates pros on their responsibility to be an ambassador for the brands they buy as well as their local retail shop. Speciality retail is a critical channel for our brand partners, so supporting and growing that channel is central to our purpose.

Our pro code of conduct

heading bottom style

  • Support your local shop.

    When pros get questions about their gear, we train them to direct people to their local speciality store.
  • Don't share your pro deals.

    We have extensive pro abuse technology that allows our team to capture all misuse. Anyone caught purchasing gear that does not meet their profile is permanently booted.
  • Be a good ambassador.

    Pros are trusted members of the outdoor community and their opinions and recommendations carry weight because of that status. We do our best to educate them on that responsibility so they can drive retail sales for the brands they love.

Our application review methodology

heading bottom style

We believe that pro purchase programs are only effective if they are 100% legit, and we strive to be the most authentic, responsible pro purchase program in the industry.

To make good on that promise, we continuously iterate on our proprietary application review process with input from our brands and industry relationships.
To begin with, our membership specialists systematically and rigorously vet every application. If an applicant is “on the fringe,” we review as a group and make a final ruling together. Each quarter of every year we revisit all fringe cases and adjust our parameters and rules accordingly to ensure our database remains squeaky-clean. After 12 months, each pro is required to upload current documentation to renew their membership. If they do not update their documents after three months, their account is terminated.

Outdoor Prolink’s mission from day one has been to outfit stewards of the great outdoors with high quality, affordable gear so they can develop deep connections with the wild places we love. We believe outdoor professionals are chief protectors and promoters of nature. They dedicate their careers to getting more people outside, and because of that, they have earned pro-deal discounts on quality outdoor gear they rely on for their jobs.
