Anova Culinary Nano Sous Vide
Save $35 The sous vide tool is not deserving of its present condition. Confined for most of its life to the kitchens of restaurants and the odd gear head, it’s been labeled a tool with too few uses for the price. This isn’t really true.
For one, great and affordable sous vide circulators exist — just look at Anova Culinary’s Nova tool, which is the first legitimately good sous vide tool to retail under $100 (and is currently on sale for an all-time low price of $64).
Down Jacket Sale
Save 45%:Whether you’re planning to hike, camp or trail run a down jacket is an excellent way to keep warm. On camping trips, your down jacket doubles as a pillow and during freezing runs it acts as an insulating layer that is breathable when you need it to be. As winter comes barreling towards us, you’re going to want something that covers all your bases. If you’re in the market for a new winter down jacket, now is a great time to buy one. Right now on Backcountry a variety of winter coats are discounted. Save up to 45% on these down coats. We’ve pulled just a smattering of down jackets that are currently on sale with lots more styles, colors and sizes on Backcountry today. — Meg Lappe
KEF LS50 Bookshelf Speakers
Save $300: The KEF LS50 are outstanding bookshelf speakers for anybody looking for a high-quality passive option to hook up to their receiver or record player. And they’re also way cheaper than the newer KEF LS50 Wireless – in fact, now they’re less than half the price. The KEF LS50 normally go for $1,300/pair, but KEF is running a discount from now until the end of the year dropping the KEF LS50 down to just shy of a $1,000. It’s definitely a pretty good deal, but it also poses an interesting question. The KEF LS50 speakers are now the same price as the much smaller, but more stream-friendly KEF LSX speakers. |
Milwaukee Tool Gear
Save Up to 60% Starting in 1924, Milwaukee Tool’s goal is to produce professional-grade tools that normal people can afford and use. It is one of the most respected names in tool and home care gear, and its stuff doesn’t usually come at a huge discount.
Today, those of us who have a yard or a weekend project coming up are in luck — a whole mess of its lawn care and DIY starter gear is discounted up to 60 percent off on eBay. The 60 sale items include edge trimmers, saws of all types, pull over jackets and lamps.
The Best Pieces of Outdoor Gear That Are Still Discounted
Save 25% and More: Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, but some of the best price cuts on outdoor gear are still available, for now. — Tanner Bowden
Save up to 69%:If you find yourself at the tail end of November wishing you had a new mid-weight coat, Nordstrom Rack has you covered. For a limited time, a huge selection of Levi’s outerwear is up to 69 percent off. That means you can pick up a good everyday coat for $80 or less. Sure, they’re not fit for a blizzard, but the rain jackets, military jackets and bombers will keep you warm and dry in more mild climes. — John Zientek
Seiko 5 SNKD99K1
Save $98: Alright, we’ve got another one for you. As you likely already know, Seiko makes some of our favorite affordable mechanical watches, but the Seiko 5 line in particular holds a special place in our hearts here at Gear Patrol. Why, you might ask? Because they’re cheap, that’s why — and Seiko has been making them for decades, which means there are myriad dial designs to choose from on both the vintage side as well as the modern side.
This particular 5 SNKD99K1 is a particularly cool one for a few reasons: for one thing, you get a perfectly sized 37mm stainless steel case and a day-date display in both English and Spanish (why is this cool? Because you can brush up on your Spanish by looking at your wrist, that’s why!). You also get a beautiful blue dial, the Seiko 7S26 21-jewel automatic movement, 50m of water resistance, a mineral crystal, a display case back, a fixed bezel and a stainless steel bracelet. The only weird thing I should warn you about is that you can’t easily swap the bracelet out — it’s got a semi-integrated design in which the lug width is effectively reduced to roughly 10mm, so good luck finding a 10mm strap to fit in there.
If you like the steel bracelet, however, for $77 this Seiko 5 is sort of a no-brainer. — Oren Hartov
