Seagate BarraCuda Pro Hard Drive

Marine Layer x National Parks Foundation Collection
Marine Layer joined forces with the National Parks Foundation to produce an exclusive graphic tee collection, featuring six of America’s finest National Parks: Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, Volcanoes, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Acadia and Mt. Rainier. The tees are made with an ultra-soft blend of Supima cotton and silky Micromodal; for every tee purchased, $15 goes straight to the National Parks Foundation. — Michael Finn


American Trench Ripstop Ventile Field Jacket
Field jackets were originally developed for soldiers fighting in World War II. Then they were redesigned to suit new battle environments, like the monsoon-prone highlands of Vietnam. De Niro famously rocked one in Taxi Driver. American Trench’s latest take on the utilitarian shell is a clean, weatherproof and breathable option made of Ventile, that now you can get right now for twenty percent off when you use the code FIELDJACKET at checkout. — Tanner Bowden
