Today in Gear: Your Folding Knife Replacement, a Water Purifier for Coffee and More


April 10, 2018 Briefings By Photo by Tekto Gear


The Rapid Knife from Tekto Gear
Compactness and lightness are the two main staples to any quality piece of EDC — if you can add speed and efficiency, even better. The Rapid from Tekto Gear is an excellent candidate to replace the current folding knife in your carry collection. The lightning-fast out-the-front blade deploys the instant you need it and retracts just as easily. The Rapid features a non-slip aluminum alloy handle tipped with a window glass breaker and backed by a hip clip; the blade is serrated for maximum versatility. Use the discount code ‘GearPatrol25’ and Tekto Gear will give you a 25% discount on the Rapid knife, which is good for 20 days beginning April 10.

Note: Owning and carrying an automatic knife isn’t legal in every state due to the Federal Switchblade Act. You can check how the law works in your state here.

Today’s Best Deals


Brooks Brothers Shirts
Save 46%: It’s easy to get into a rut with your professional wardrobe. You have shirts and slacks that work, and you simply rotate through them. If you’re feeling like your office garb has gotten a little static, consider investing in a couple new shirts from Brooks Brothers. They’ve got a classic fit and design that will pair well with your existing wardrobe, and they come in a range of colors and patterns. Now at Nordstrom Rack, they’re 46 percent off and cost just $50 per shirt. — John Zientek


Aero 48-Inch Media Center
Save $575: The art of putting together the small apartment is finding slightly smaller versions of full-size furniture you love. Point being, you can’t really go for a full wall, four-feet deep media center with a paltry 600 square-feet to work with. However, this Aero 48-inch media center fits that bill perfectly and, for now, won’t break the bank. Designed by Gabriel Tan to blend Shaker-style furniture with modern lines and color, the Aero is made of hand-painted American Ashwood and a protective lacquered finish. The media console, which typically retails at $1150, is 50 percent off on Design Within Reach now. — Will Price


Sony WH-1000XM2
Save $143: Frankly, the Sony WH-1000XM2 and the Bose QC35 II ($350) are the two best wireless active noise-canceling headphones you can buy in 2018. And the Sony WH-1000XM2 are going for $205 on eBay right now — which is almost $150 less than its normal $348 MSRP. This is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen the Sony WH-1000XM2 going for. It’s also important to point out that these headphones are “manufacturer-refurbished.” If you’re worried about them not meeting your expectations, remember that each pair comes with a warranty and a 30-day return policy.


Glycine Combat Sub
Save 75%: The Glycine Combat Sub is an excellent example of a usable tool that has some vintage panache. It’s powered by a movement based on the venerable ETA 2824 automatic and features a unidirectional timing bezel and a 42mm case good for a 200-meter depth rating. The Combat Sub’s MSRP is around $1,500, but usually, you can find them at online retailers closer to $600. Still, Massdrop is offering even bigger savings with a campaign that’s marked down the watch’s price to just $380. — Andrew Connor


Patagonia Sale
Save 30%: Patagonia’s arsenal of clothing runs the gamut of everything you could need, year round. Right now, Backcountry is having a massive Patagonia sale where everything from shirts, pullovers, pants, down jackets and so much more are all at least 30% off. It’s a gigantic catalog of clothing, so we picked out a few of the pieces that caught our eye to get you started. — Bryan Campbell
