Mountain Standard Down Jackets and Gloves
Save 50%: Don’t be fooled by a mid-February heat wave; winter is fickle, and it will return with a cold disregard for whatever clothing you were planning on wearing until Spring takes over. Luckily Colorado-based outdoor brand Mountain Standard is selling off the last of its 2018 insulation collection — that includes jackets, shirt jackets and gloves — for 50 percent off. Each piece is stuffed with premium 700-fill goose down or Primaloft Gold to provide lightweight warmth in a variety of stylish profiles. — Tanner Bowden
Breville Quick Touch Microwave
Save $40: There’s no arguing that the microwave is a necessity in the modern kitchen, and, even at $250, Breville’s Quick Touch model is one of the best value-gets out there. It sports a 12-inch glass reheat table, ten variable power levels, a one-year replacement warranty and a particularly useful “A Bit More” button, which adds exactly “a bit” of cook time. Best part? It’s $40 off right now. — Will Price
Save $900: The Barcelona Chair isn’t just icon of modern furniture design, but modern design writ large — and we won’t say $900 off makes it a no-brainer pick-up, but it definitely doesn’t hurt.
Made to the same specifications today as it was in its heyday, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s 1929 piece was originally made to seat the king and queen of Spain at an event in Barcelona. The legs and frame are hand-buffed chrome, and the seat and cushion itself is a combination of Spinneyback Volo cowhide and cowhide belting straps.
The Barcelona Chair, its accompanying stool, couch and more than 200 other items are part of the DWR Dining and Knoll sale going on right now. — Will Price
Save $19: Apple still doesn’t sell AirPods in the “certified refurbished” part of its site, but Best Buy does. You can get a set of refurbished AirPods on Best Buy for $140 — that’s $19 off their original MSRP. It’s not a lot, but to the best of my knowledge, it’s the only place you can get any type of deal on Apple AirPods. — Tucker Bowe
Save $75+: Since its creation in 1956, Wayfarer-style sunglasses have found their way onto the big screen more than a few times. Until the end of today, you can check out a variety of styles that are all on sale for up to 60% off. Here are a few to get you started — including a stylish blue lens pair. — Meg Lappe
Hoka One One Vanquish 3
Save $100: No matter how you choose to say Hoka One One (is it one-one or OH-ne, Oh-ne?) the maximalist shoes are loved for all things long distance related. You’re sure to spot a pair (or five) on triathlon, marathons and ultras courses — the cushioning is unparalleled. To sweeten the deal, when you use code JRSOLEV at checkout, you can pick up a pair of the Vanquish 3s for just $67 down from $170. — Meg Lappe
Seiko Prospex SRPB55 Samurai
Save 25%: Many watch enthusiasts cut their teeth on mechanical Seiko dive watches because they are some of the best values in the watch industry. Take, for example, this Prospex SRPB55 “Samurai.” It’s has a full 200-meter depth rating (meeting ISO’s standard for divers), an in-house automatic movement, a waffle-textured dial and a case with a black ion finish. Yet you can get all of this for just $525 — except right now on Amazon, the watch is selling at a 25 percent discount, meaning you can get this hard-hitting diver for only $393. — Andrew Connor
