Leatherman Wave Plus Multi-Tool
Save 30%: Leatherman, like Kleenex and Band-Aid, is one of those brand names that has come to stand for the category of products it produces: multi-tools. That’s because we’ve collectively agreed that Leatherman produces some of the best available, and among the 50-plus tools in its arsenal, the Wave is the best-seller.
Right now the Wave is on sale for 30 percent off at Huckberry. The multi-tool is four inches when closed, weighs 8.5 ounces and comes with a classic leather sheath and a 25-year warranty. — Tanner Bowden
Common Projects Sneakers
Save 40%:Since its inception in 2004, New York-based footwear brand Common Projects has become something of a cult favorite. The brand makes luxe versions of classic sneaker silhouettes, using premium materials and Italian craftsmanship. While the brand isn’t as hard to come by as it once was, it’s rare to find substantial markdowns on any of its styles.
But, today is one of those rare occasions. If you head over to Need Supply Co., you can save 40 percent on a few different pairs of shoes and boots from Common Projects. The understated styles are available in a range of sizes and prices start at $248 — that’s almost unheard of for this brand. — John Zientek
Save up to 55%:Since its inception in 1863, Frye has made a name for itself with a diverse range of quality leather footwear. While the brand now offers many more styles than it did a century ago, it hasn’t strayed from its dedication to using top-tier construction and high-grade leathers. If you’re in the market for a new pair of boots, Zappos is currently offering up to 55 percent off a range of boots from Frye. Styles include a zip boot, a Chelsea boot and a hiking boot, and prices start at $148. If you see something you like, don’t wait long — sizes will go fast with prices like these. — John Zientek
Uniqlo Down Jacket Sale
Save 50%Packing for winter travels is much worse than when packing for summer adventures. Sweaters, base layers and ski helmets take up so much more space compared to tank tops and shorts. Here at Gear Patrol, we’re continually looking for ways to streamline our wardrobes so that when we fly, it’s a breeze. One of the first steps is finding a lightweight, packable down jacket that looks good, feels warm and isn’t absurdly priced. The Uniqlo Ultra Light Down Jacket checks all those boxes. It’s packable and water-repellent, so you’re protected when it snows.
While down jackets typically run at a higher price than some synthetic jackets, it’s hard to find a better deal than at Uniqlo. Right now, you can buy a down jacket for just $30, which is 50 percent off. There are 11 colors to choose from, but only a handful of which are on sale. Depending on the color you want, sizes are limited, so be sure to check them all out before purchasing. — Meg Lappe
Zeroll Ice Cream Scoop
Save 30% In the world of ice cream scooping, there’s very little argument about which scoop is best. According to Wirecutter, Epicurious, Serious Eats and any others weird enough to test out ice cream scoops, the answer is Zeroll’s Original scoop.
Why? Its one-piece design means no broken gears or damaged springs. It’s also perfectly symmetrical, so it’s good for righties and lefties. But the real kicker is a feature present since the scoop’s 1935 release — heat-conductive liquid inside the handle and bowl of the spoon that cuts through ice cream like butter. Today on Amazon, the OG Zeroll scoop is marked down $6 — a savings of 30 percent. —Will Price
Wash and Wear
Bonobos’s Washable Merino Sweaters Are on Sale Right now, the washable merino sweaters that Bonobos makes are on sale, in some cases discounted to over 50 percent off their original price. Which means you can get a highly adaptable layer you’ll wear for years to come at a super reasonable price.— Justin Fenner
