Today’s Top Deals


A.P.C. Black Petit Standard Jeans
Save 70%: A.P.C.’s Petit Standard jeans are the standard by which all slim-fit jeans are measured against. They have a classic five pocket design, a zipper fly and fabric with two percent stretch for added comfort. Now at East Dane, you can save 70 percent on a pair cut from black denim. It’s hard to argue with savings of $154. — John Zientek


Cole Haan Leather Duffel
Save 64%: Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save 64 percent on a tasteful leather duffel bag from Cole Haan. Available in both black and brown, the bag features dual rolled-top handles, a zip closure and interior organizing pockets. It’s not overly complicated, nor should it be. The perfect size for a weekend getaway, it will hold a couple changes of clothes, toiletries and other necessities. — John Zientek


Miir Backpacks
Save 40%: If you’ve been toying with biking to work, now’s the time to take that step. A sleek bag with water repellent finish and an easy-access zip top is a necessity. All bags and bikes at MiiR, a Seattle-based brand, is 40% off. — Meg Lappe


Orient Bambino V3
Save 50%: The Orient Bambino is a stalwart low-cost favorite amongst many watch enthusiasts for pairing an automatic movement with a clean, vintage-inspired design (cinched by a domed dial and crystal) at a relatively low price. How low? Well, normally, the watch retails for around $300, but you can usually find the Bambino for sale online at a decent price cut. Huckberry, for instance, has the blue dial V3 version for sale right now for just $121. — Andrew Connor


Mountain Hardwear Backpack
Save $45: The only real reason to continue using a drawstring bag is if you’re bagging up your dirty clothes from the gym or vacation, and even then it’s going into a carry-on or backpack. Besides from just being uncomfortable on the trail, drawstring bags never have enough pockets to hold all our stuff. One bag that’s an easy swap: This SingleTrack Backpack from Mountain Hardwear. Now through the end of the day, it’s on sale for just $45, down from $90. — Meg Lappe


Isaora Jackets and Coats
Save up to 75%: Up to 75% off some of the best workout gear, rain jackets and down jackets money can buy. — Will Price


Sony 1000XM2 ANC Headphones and Bluetooth Speaker
Save $100: The Sony 1000XM2 is one of the best active noise-canceling headphones you buy — it arguably boasts a better sound-and-ANC combo than the Bose QuietComfort 35 IIs — and they normally go for $348. However, eBay is selling the headphones and Sony’s Bluetooth speaker for $348. You’re essentially buying the headphones straight up, and getting a $100 rugged and wireless speaker for free. — Tucker Bowe


Nike Apparel Sale
Save 30%: Nike’s minimalist style and performance fabrics make it an easy addition to all gym apparel. This week only, JackRabbit has a host of Nike gear on sale including half-zips, tights, tanks, shorts, and more. Here are a few of our top picks to help you get started. — Meg Lappe


Hunter Boots Original Chelsea Rain Boot
Save 20%: Right now, Backcountry is running a rare sort of sale: 20 percent off one full-priced item when you use the code TAKEOFF20 at checkout. The only catch? You have to subscribe to Backcountry’s email newsletter. Easy. (There are some additional exclusions.)

Yesterday we revealed an incoming collaboration between the British outerwear company Hunter and Target that’s going to produce a stylish and remarkably cheap rain boot. But if you can’t wait until April 14, or want to pick up the boot that inspired the collaboration in the first place, you can do so now at Backcountry. Hunter Boots’ Original Chelsea Rain Boot is constructed with natural vulcanized rubber, a polyester lining and a grippy rubber outsole. Best of all, they barely look like rain boots. — Tanner Bowden


Panasonic Rechargeable AA-Batteries
Save $15: Rechargeable batteries are one of those office necessities you don’t talk about. Because if you’re talking about them, then there’s probably a problem. I’m not going to glorify these particular rechargeable batteries too much, but we use them in our office. In our wireless mice and keyboards. And they just work. Right now, Amazon is having a special deal on Panasonic’s rechargeable AA-batteries. You can buy a 12-pack for $25, which is $13 off. The charging dock isn’t included, granted, but you can pick that up for $18 (here). If you need a lot of rechargeable batteries, like in an office setting, I recommend jumping on these.
