Peak Design Camera Bags and Accessories
Save 10%: It sounds hyperbolic to say that Peak Design makes the best damn photography accessories available, but it’s true. The brand marked itself apart in 2011 when it launched a unique tool called Capture that lets photographers mount their cameras to backpack straps, belts or wherever the little clamp fits. Then it doubled down on its success with a line of thoughtful straps that are incredibly easy to adjust, can support more than your camera will ever weigh and use a distinct anchor mounting system that makes it easy to transfer them from camera to camera (or to bags — you can use these as shoulder straps too).
Peak Design also produces a collection of bags and pouches, the most recent of which is designed for travel and optimized — but not solely created for — photography. Along with that bag, the company made camera cubes, a tech pouch and a very impressive Dopp kit. All of these items are united by the brand’s unmatched capability to marry minimalism with functionality so seamlessly that the results come off as obvious. At the moment, they’re all also 10 percent off when you enter the code FRIENDS at checkout. — Tanner Bowden
Finex Cast-Iron Skillets
Save 20% As odd as this sounds, Finex’s cast-iron skillets and greater cookware line are probably the most divisive pans in the cooking world right now. The bulky coil handle and the wealth of corners make sure of that. But one thing is certain: the people who like their Finex pans, really, really like them.
Other than the more obvious design idiosyncrasies, Finex’s pots and pans are exceptionally thick in the base, which means they will take longer to heat through than a thinner iron. The machined cooking surface also allows for easier food release right out of the box.
Today, you can nab however many you want for 20 percent off on Kaufmann Mercantile’s site using code GIFT20 at checkout. —Will Price
Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC Wireless
Save $65: Released last year, the Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC Wireless are wireless noise-canceling headphones that currently cost $150 on Best Buy and Jet.com. Obviously, these aren’t Sennheiser’s high-end noise-canceling headphones, the HD1 Wireless, that cost between $250 and $300, and there are some noticeable differences. The HD 4.50 BTNC Wireless aren’t made with the same premium materials, and they’re arguably not quite as comfortable – but they still deliver premium sound and very good noise-cancellation. Also, they have an excellent 20-hour battery life. They’re also cheap right now, going for just $85 on eBay.
