Frye Will Plain Toe Boot
Save 45%: This handsome boot is made from supple Italian suede, and features a leather lining and combination leather/rubber sole. It’s a versatile style you can dress up or dress down, and its quality construction stand up to years of wear.— John Zientek
Bose SoundSport In-Ear Headphones
Save: $50 If you’re not sold on wireless, Bose’s wired in-ear headphones sound great and are sweat-resistant, perfect for working out. They’re normally $100, but this eBay deal chops in half. — Tucker Bowe
Common Projects Chelsea Boot
Save $132: Launched way back in 2008, the Common Projects’ super clean, well-built Chelsea Boot helped redefine the boot style and turn it into a modern man’s must-have. It’s also eye-waveringly expensive. Fortunately, Need Supply has taken a good $132 off the vaunted boot in tobacco-hued suede, so you can get in on the phenomenon at a more reasonable price. — Andrew Connor
Xbox One X Controller
Save: $22 If you’re like my brother, you’ll know that FIFA does some dumb things and you tend break controllers because of it. But controllers are expensive. This deal cuts that $59 price down to a more manageable $37. — Tucker Bowe
Cole Haan Leather Duffel
Save 75%: If you’ve been looking for an understated leather overnight bag, this is for you. Made of either chocolate or black leather, this bag features two leather handles, a zip closure and a fabric lining with interior pockets. It may be on the small side for a full weekend getaway, but for a quick trip, you can’t beat it. — John Zientek
Gerber Suspension Multi-Plier
Save 29%: Demand more from your pocketknife. Demand pliers (both needlenose and regular), a saw blade, screwdrivers and six other types of tools that’ll keep you prepared in a pinch, without adding too much extra heft to your pocket. — Tanner Bowden
SOG Field Pup Knife
Save 67%: The Field Pup Knife’s handle is made of Kraton, a kind of synthetic rubber that’s highly resistant to heat, weathering and chemicals. The four-inch blade, made of exceptionally durable stainless steel, is equally durable. And the knife weighs just four ounces, making it an ideal working knife for all sorts of backcountry applications. It comes in two colors (tan and black), and comes with a black leather sheath. — Michael Finn
Sonos Play:1 and Play:3
Ssave: $50 on Each Sonos’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are still on, for the Play:1 and Play:3 at least. Both are still $50 off, so if you were thinking about expanding (or starting) your home’s Sonos ecosystem, there’s still time to do so for less. — Tucker Bowe
GORUCK Gym Bag
Save $26: Here’s a completely objective statement: GORUCK makes probably the toughest Cordura nylon backpacks on Earth. They are literally war-ready. GORUCK’s gym duffel is, too. The main compartment holds 38 liters of gear, plus a internal zipper pocket separates quick-access stuff, like your keys or phone. Use it for towing gym essentials, or, if you’re a true GORUCK loyalist, a few hundred pounds of military equipment. — Michael Finn
Camp Hero Winter Escape Belt
Save 30%: Until December 4th, you can get 30% off any purchase at Camp Hero with the code CAMPHOLIDAY. Based in NYC, Camp Hero produces beaded belts, cuffs and hats that are inspired by vintage accessories. The Winter Escape belt was recently released and features a beaded winter scene stitched onto 8 ounce full-grain leather. It’s a bit Americana and a bit throwback, but perfect for the right person. — John Zientek
Miyabi Kaizen II 8″ Chef’s Knife
Save $85: Sur La Table is taking over 39% off this chef’s knife from Miyabi. It’s forged from a steel core that’s surrounded by 48 layers of damascus stainless steel giving it both a striking look and a durable edge. — Andrew Connor
Marshall Acton Bluetooth Speaker
Save $71: The Acton speaker is a Bluetooth speaker that looks like a classic Marshall amp, complete with grill, vintage control knobs and a black vinyl covering. And it works like a classic Bluetooth speaker. It normally goes for $250, but you can score a brand new model for just $120 on eBay. — Tucker Bowe
J.Crew Coats, Sweaters and More Sale
Save 30%: If you missed J.Crew’s recent holiday sale, don’t worry, you now have a second chance to save on seasonal wardrobe essentials including everything from overcoats and down jackets to pullovers and knitwear. You know, in case you need a holiday sweater that isn’t ugly. Just use the code BUNDLEUP at checkout for the discount. — Tanner Bowden
Jabra Elite Sport Wireless Headphones
Save 64%: Jabra specializes in sports-focused wireless earphones. The Jabra Elite Sport earphones ($250) are the company’s magnum opus of sorts, with built-in sensors to measure heart-rate and VO2 Max fitness, and providing a voice in your ear that coaches you through your workouts. More importantly, these are Jabra’s only truly wireless earbuds. Originally announced in late 2016, Jabra updated the Jabra Elite Sport earphones this year to double its battery life (each earbud now has a 4.5-hour lifespan). And because they’re still IP67-rated, these earbuds are actually designed to handle a workout. AirPods, on the other hand, are not.
No truly wireless earbuds are cheap and the Jabra Elite Sport earphones are no exception. You can find them on Amazon or Best Buy for $250 (wow), but you can also rest easy knowing that you’re getting the best sport-focused wireless earbuds you can buy. However, if you pounce now you can get these same earbuds for $90 on eBay — that’s 64 percent or $160 off.
Note: These headphones are “manufacturer refurbished,” which can be a red flag for some. If you need some reassurance, it comes with a one-year warranty and a 30-day return policy. — Tucker Bowe
Save 15%: Flashlights are great, essential even, especially when it comes to adventure. But they’re also a little boring. But not VSSL’s; inside the handle of this 200-lumen torch is a chamber that’s lined with glass at the molecular level so that it can safely store up to ten ounces of your favorite beverage. The Flask also comes with a compass and two collapsible shot glasses, and when you enter GearPDon15 at checkout you’ll save 15% on the least boring flashlight you’ve ever seen.
Vans Authentic Sneaker
Save 20%: It’s hard to go wrong with a pair of Vans. They’re a minimalist, low-profile shoe that looks great in any casual situation — and they’re affordable. Now, you can get $10 off the Authentic silhouette in dark blue with a gum sole. It’s a good-looking colorway at a ridiculously good price, so why wait? — John Zientek
Citizen BM8180-03E Eco-Drive
Save $88: Citizen’s affordable Eco-Drive field watch might be the perfect casual timepiece for the price. Its 37mm size would work for anyone, it has a solid 100-meter depth rating and with a solar-charged quartz movement you’ll never have to worry about battery changes. Now you can get it at an even better price than usual, at 50% off its MSRP.
— Andrew Connor
LG 55-Inch OLED TV
Save $1,501: If you’re up to date on the latest TV technologies, you’ll know that OLED TVs are the nicest TVs you can buy. They produce darker blacks and more vibrant colors than any LCD TV. And yes, this superior picture quality comes at a cost. Most 55- and 65-inch OLEDs by LG — who make the crème de la crème of OLED TVs — cost a couple grand. That doesn’t mean there aren’t deals to be had, however.
The 2017 LG E7 OLED is one of the company’s high-end OLEDs — even nicer than its flagship C7P OLEDs — and a 55-inch model usually goes for $4,500. Right now, you can get a holiday deal on that same TV on Amazon for $2,500 (link here). But if you want a real steal, you can get that same TV for $1,500 on eBay. That’s 66-percent off, a total saving of $3,000, and it puts this 2017 OLED in the same price range as pretty-nice-but-not-OLED TVs. Insanity.
Yes, this TV has been “manufacturer refurbished,” which can be a red flag for some. If you need some reassurance, it comes with a one-year warranty and a 30-day return policy. — Tucker Bowe
Save $500: Since it came out a couple years ago, the Sony a7R II has set the standard for mirrorless cameras. It has a full-frame 42MP Exmor R CMOS sensor, up to 102,400 ISO and the ability to shoot 4K video. What’s more, it weighs in at 1 pound 6 ounces, and can seriously lighten your load if you’re traveling and shooting. It performs well and is durable, and now on Amazon, you can get $500 off this pro-level camera. If you’ve been contemplating investing in a mirrorless set-up, let this be the incentive to guide you. — John Zientek
