When you’re outdoors and filming video, you need a camera that can withstand the rigors of the adventures you’re getting into. For years that choice has been a GoPro. And with the rugged camera brand’s latest release, the HERO7 Black, that sentiment isn’t just merely reinforced, it’s cemented — the HERO7 Black is GoPro’s most advanced camera yet.

The development of HyperSmooth technology ensures the end of shaky videos. Voice commands allow for easy hands-free filming on the go. SuperPhoto analyzes lighting situations to always take the optimal image. And the new direct-to-social live streaming capabilities offer an experience unlike anything else. If there’s one holiday gift sure to make adventures better, it’s the GoPro HERO7 Black.

Fresh Deals


Moccamaster Coffee Maker
Save 20% Born more than a half-century ago, Technivorm’s Moccamaster has remained among the coffee elite from its earliest days to the present.

The machines gained notoriety early on for the use of copper tubing in its water heating cycle, a far better heat conductor than steel in any form. The Moccamaster has also been made and tested by hand in the Netherlands from the start, and to this day is still fully disassemblable — a rare trait that makes cleaning and upkeep much simpler.

Today on Amazon, the most popular Moccamaster model is at its lowest price ever on Amazon today — down from its $309 regular price to $247. This model uses a large steel carafe (it comes with a twist top to keep brewed coffee hot) but doesn’t have a hot plate. Even compared to the speediest coffee makers on the market nowadays, it’s one of the fastest (Breville’s Precision Brewer is a touch quicker). Make sure to get matching filters.


Klipsch RP-160M Reference Premiere Monitor Speakers
Save $250: The Klipsch RP-160M are high-end monitor speakers in the company’s Reference Premiere line. The most striking thing about them is the large gold Cerametallic woofer in the center of each speaker, which allows them to deliver accurate midrange and punchy bass. It should be noted that these are powerful audiophile-grade speakers, which the experts at Sound Vision suggest that they “require some space to perform optimally – a bit too big for a bookshelf in other words.” That said, they’ve rated them really highly – 94/100 – and Crutchfield also given them 5/5 stars. Normally $549, you can buy them from World Wide Stereo for just $299 – that’s way cheaper than you’ll find them anywhere else. On the website, the speakers are already discounted to $439 for the holidays, but if you type in the promo code CYBER it’ll drop them down to $299.


Norse Projects Black Aros Chinos
Save 34%:A pair of black chinos is one of the more versatile garments for any guy’s wardrobe. You can dress them up with a blazer and dress shoes or keep them casual with a sweatshirt and sneakers. And now at End, you can save 34 percent on some great black chinos from Norse Projects. The Aros chinos are made from lightweight Italian twill and feature a zipper closure and classic silhouette. For under $100, it would be hard to find a better pair. — John Zientek


These 5 Pocket Knives Are Awesome, and on Sale
Save up to 70%: Pocket knives can cost thousands, but price doesn’t signify utility. Right now, lots of great blades are on sale at Backcountry. — Tanner Bowden


Staub Dutch Oven
Save $185 Though frustratingly expensive, Staub Dutch ovens are among the most coveted in the cooking world. From a craftsmanship, prestige and performance perspective, the pots are on-par (if not better, for some people) than those made by Le Creuset.

More specifically, Staub’s ovens hold heat (they’re slightly heavier) and moisture (the lid is a significantly tighter fit) better than Le Creuset, which are good traits for stew and soup season, as consistent heat and moisture retention are critical to the finished dish’s taste.

Now through December, Food52 is offering Staub’s 4-quart, $284 oven for just $99. Available in matte black, cherry, turquoise or turmeric, the 4-quart is slightly smaller than the traditional 5.5- to 6-quart oven, but there’s still plenty of room for two or three people.
