The Camp Kitchen Set You Want on Your Next Backcountry Adventure
Overland excursions and backcountry adventures are an incredible way to get away from it all, decompress and soak in all that nature has to offer. However, when you head into the wilderness, being prepared and having the right gear is essential to having a good experience, staying sane and being safe. When it comes to the outdoor kitchen you set up; you’ll want Sea to Summit’s new Alpha Series Cooksets.

The hard-anodized Alpha Pots, combined with BPA-free DeltaLight dinnerware, create an easy-to-store, easy-to-use camp kitchen set that’s durable enough for rigors of the outdoors. The two-person cook set has ingenious features such as the Pivot-Lock™ handles and Lid Keep lid retainer. At just 27 oz., it nests neatly together to store into a compact size, perfect for the limited space in the back of your overlander. Individual pots and pans start at just $35, so you’ll be saving money along with all that precious cargo space, too.

Fresh Deals


Keds Royal Lo Suede Sneakers
Save 79%: Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can pick up a pair of Pro-Keds Royal Lo suede sneakers for just $20. Currently marked down 79 percent, the tonal tan kicks feature a round top cap, a removable insole and a rubber grip sole. Other minimalist leather sneakers go for at least ten times this amount, so don’t wait long — sizes are limited. — John Zientek


Instant Pot’s Most Powerful Model Is 33% Off Right Now
Save 33%: Instant Pot helped ignite a passion for pressure cooking and the brand’s appliances — which function as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, steamer and rice cooker — have a cult-like following amongst home chefs. But for those who have been sheepish about adopting the brand’s devices, Instant Pot’s most powerful model, the Ultra, has just gotten a massive 33 percent markdown. In addition to its pre-set functions, its “ULTRA” function allows users to granularly adjust temperature, cooking time and pressurization, adding to its utility (and even turning it into a sous vide circulator). Those familiar with previous Instant Pot models will appreciate the integration of an elevation sensor, which automatically adjusts pressure and cooking time according to altitude, and a progress indicator that keeps tabs on food during the cooking process.


Arc’teryx A2B Commuter Hardshell Jacket
Save 30%: A sudden downpour shouldn’t turn you off from your morning cycle commute nor should to tempt you into getting decked out in pro-level all-weather gear. The Arc’teryx A2B Commuter Hardshell Jacket lands in a happy middle ground that blocks out the wind and seals out rain and still lets you walk into the office with a casual style. The N40p-X GORE-TEX fabric with 3L tricot does the bulk of the wind-and weatherproofing with a little extra help from a DWR finish on the outer shell. The integrated Stormhood, reflective panels and a fit specifically designed for cycling, bring even more commuter friendly performance to the table. — Bryan Campbell


Mother’s Day Sales
Save up to $300: Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and if you haven’t shopped yet, there’s still time. Most sites suggest you order by midnight tonight and the gifts will arrive in time for you to hand it off to Mom on her special day. But don’t wait, the time to shop is now. Here are a few of our favorite deals. — Meg Lappe
