Shinola Slim Bifold Leather Wallet
Save 54%: Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save 54% on a timeless leather bifold wallet from Shinola. This American-made wallet features six card slots, two slip pockets and a billfold. The branding is minimal and the style is classic — you can’t go wrong. — John Zientek
Anova Culinary Sous Vide Precision Cooker
Save $49: Sous Vide cooking — long a staple in high-end restaurants — has now been given new life in the home kitchen thanks to affordable, compact circulators from brands like Anova. Anova’s Bluetooth-equipped, 800-watt circulator is an excellent option for just about any home cook: It’ll easily fit into a soup pot and its smartphone connectivity allows the user to monitor their food make temperature adjustments from anywhere in the home. Amazon has just taken 33% off the at home cooker, so you can get it right now for just $100. — Andrew Connor
LG C7P 65″ Smart OLED 4K Ultra HD TV
Save $400: The C7P is LG’s flagship OLED TV. It has the same stunning 4K picture quality as the brand’s high-end W7 OLED, just without the wallpaper-thin design and extremely high price tag. We also selected it as one of the best OLED TVs in 2017. It’s an excellent TV to consider if you’re looking to make the jump to OLED, and eBay is currently offering a 65-inch C7P for $2,249 — that’s roughly $450 less than what it’s going for on Best Buy and Amazon (which is $2,697). — Tucker Bowe
Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens
Save $50: A pancake lens is an easy addition to any camera kit. In general, they offer superior image quality over most zoom lenses and a great entry into prime lenses. Plus, most are relatively inexpensive. If you’re looking for a good deal, Canon is offering its 40mm f/2.8 STM lens for $50 off. You can buy it directly from Canon (here) or from a trusted retailer like Amazon (here) or B&H Photo (here). — Tucker Bowe
Red Wing 9016 Cigar Featherstone
Save $153: Now at Brooks Brothers, you can save $153 on the Red Wing Heritage Beckman boots. Made from Cigar Featherstone leather, they feature Goodyear-welt construction, a Roccia outsole and flat waxed laces. Versatile and rugged, these boots will stand up to whatever you put them through and will look even better as the years pass. And after you check these out, make sure to peruse the rest of the clearance section at Brooks Brothers — it’s now an additional 25% off. — John Zientek
Mountain Hardwear OutDry Duffel
Save 20%: There are a lot of choices when it comes to duffel bags. Canvas or leather, sporty or stylish, and then there’s what color — but in the end what makes a duffel great is its ability to carry and protect all your stuff when you’re on the road.
There’s nothing flashy about the OutDry Duffel; no shiny plastic-like fabric or bright “outdoorsy” colors. But make no mistake, this bag is capable of taking a beating. Mountain Hardwear’s OutDry tech entails a custom-shaped waterproof membrane laminated to the bag’s inner, which seals fabrics and seams all at once. Just to be sure it worked, the brand sealed the bag away in a rain room for 24 hours, so although the fabric may not feel waterproof, rest assured that your stuff will remain dry once inside. The simplistic look won’t draw attention to would-be bag thieves, either.
The OutDry Duffel is currently 20% off at Backcountry and is available in sizes from carry-on to fits-everything-you-own. — Tanner Bowden
Fujifilm Instax Mini 7s
Save 25%: The Fujifilm Mini 7s is as basic as a point-and-shoot camera gets without going full-on disposable, but that’s where its appeal lies. A simple and incredibly user-friendly nature makes the 7s skirt the line between vintage Polaroid camera and a toy, which is why it ticks all the boxes for a perfect, fun stocking stuffer. And today, you can get a 7s for $40 ($46 with film). If you’re looking for last-minute gift ideas, this deal is hard to beat. — Bryan Campbell
TRX Suspension Trainers
Save 20%: In roughly two weeks, you’re going to make a New Year’s resolution to be better about exercise. You’ll probably start by signing a year-long contract with your local gym (you won’t be alone, Gold’s Gym recently reported that its traffic increases by 40 percent during December and January). Maybe you’ll have a productive month of increased fitness — perhaps even two — but then your resolve will waver, and that expensive gym membership will begin to accumulate dust.
It’s ok, more than half of all gym memberships go unused (gym business models count on this). There is a better way though: the home gym. A good home gym doesn’t have to entail heavy and bulky, not to mention expensive, equipment. In fact, it can be portable, something that you can carry on an airplane and set up in a hotel room. It’s been proven by TRX, a suspension training system designed by a Navy SEAL. TRX takes mere seconds to set up, works indoors and out, and facilitates training programs sourced from the military and professional athletes.
For a limited time, you can purchase the TRX Tactical Suspension Trainer or the Rip Trainer for 20% off, which is guaranteed to be less than that gym membership you’re about to start considering. — Tanner Bowden
Backcountry Ski Socks Sale
Save up to 30%: No, those white, cotton, comes-in-pack-of-twelve peds won’t cut it. — Tanner Bowden
