New & Noteworthy Releases
Today’s Best Deals
Topo Designs Classic Duffle Bag
Save 30%: This durable duffle bag is our Outdoors and Fitness team’s pick for the “Best All-Around Gym Bag.” Made in America by Topo Designs, it features a zip-top, two interior pockets, double handles and a removable shoulder strap. It’s a simple versatile design that will serve you well for years, and now at East Dane, it’s 30% off. — John Zientek
Cole Haan Leather Duffle Bag
Save 60%: Not every trip you take requires a hard-shell rolling suitcase. In many instances, it’s appropriate — and even easier — to carry a weekender. Cole Haan offers a refined leather duffle bag perfect for multi-day trips that features a zip-top closure, dual rolled-leather handles and a detachable shoulder strap. A tasteful upgrade fit for both business travel and vacations, this bag is now 60% off at Nordstrom Rack. — John Zientek
Patagonia Black Hole 120L Duffel
Save 30%: Patagonia built its Black Hole collection to take a beating; the main ingredient shoring up the line is a rugged polyester ripstop fabric equipped with a weatherproof TPU laminate and a water-repellent finish. That makes Black Hole Duffels perfect for travel, adventure and general use too. The 120-liter model is as big as these bags come — its interior space is cavernous — and it’s entirely capable of transporting all of your belongings with the help of two removable backpack-style shoulder straps. Right now you can snag this duffel, (it’ll be the last one you’ll ever need), for 30 percent off at Backcountry. — Tanner Bowden
Osprey Atmos 50 AG Backpack
Save $90: Thanks to Osprey’s AntiGravity wrap-around mesh back panel, the Atmos is one of the most comfortable trekking packs available. But beyond comfort, Osprey bags are prized by even veteran thru-hikers (it’s the most popular brand on the Appalachian Trail) for their functional features. The Atmos has plenty — from a removable lid to a handy trekking pole attachment — that make it ideal for overnights and multi-day camping trips. Right now the 50-liter Atmos is nearly 40 percent off, which is perfect if you’re already beginning to plan spring and summer adventures. — Tanner Bowden
Danner Portland Select Light Boot
Save 35%:If classic style and modern performance is Danner’s modus operandi, then the Portland Select Light Boot is the poster child. An upper made of full-grain leather and 1000D nylon canvas side panels offer breathability, abrasion resistance and the timeless look of a vintage hiking boot, all wrapped in one. And, today on Back Country you can get these Danner boots for 35% off and save $133. So no you can throw incredibly affordable on that list of qualities too. — Bryan Campbell
Save 20%: Hamilton makes some excellent entry-level mechanical watches, but even at their most affordable, they’re still generally pricier than their counterparts from Seiko or Tissot. Thankfully, Nordstrom is taking 20 percent off several Hamilton watches, making them just a little bit more attainable. The sale encompasses a number of great mechanical watches, from hand-winding field watches to automatic chronographs. — Andrew Connor
Alternative Apparel Flash Sale
Save $30+: That $5 coffee you bought this morning is now the same price as Alternative Apparel’s tanks, tees, long sleeves and hoodies. The flash sale is happening now through midnight. Get an extra 10% off all basics when you spend $25 (that’s only five products) when you use code FLASH10. Supply is limited, so go-time is now. — Meg Lappe
Seagate 6TB External HD
Save $85: More than 100,000 hours of music, 1.5 million photos, 5,000 hours of video or — brace yourself — 700 million standard floppy disks. That’s a rough picture of what kind of storage space Seagate’s Backup Plus 6TB external hard drive gives you. Yep, that should do it.
The hard drive comes formatted for Windows, but a simple driver installation allows for easy back-and-forth between Mac and Windows. Here’s the real kicker, though: The beefy external hard drive is $85 (45%) off right now.
