Moccamaster CDG Coffee Maker
Save $110: Launched in 1969, the original Moccamaster was the first coffee maker ever approved by the Specialty Coffee Association’s rigorous home brewer program, is easy as hell to use and it’s never lost its sleek ’60s aesthetic. Altogether, it’s got serious claims on being the best coffee maker money can buy. Today, the grail coffee pot is marked down a healthy $110 on Massdrop.
Who shouldn’t get a Moccamaster? If you value programmability or scheduling brew times in advance, look toward Oxo’s Barista Brain or Breville’s Precision Brewer. Don’t forget the filters. —Will Price
American Trench Socks
Save an Extra 30%: For many, the sock drawer is one of the more neglected wardrobe nooks. Though socks get repeated wear and laundering, they’re often not replaced as soon as they should be. If your sock drawer is in need of a refresh, head over to American Trench today where you can save an additional 30 percent on all sale socks. Choose from recycled cotton and wool blends in a range of colors — there’s something for everyone. — John Zientek
SOG CrossCut Multi-tool
Save 31%: Most butterfly-style multi-tools build on a base of pliers, with knives, screwdrivers and bottle openers folding out of the handles, but not the SOG CrossCut, which is currently on sale at REI for 31 percent off. Instead, SOG put a pair of spring-loaded scissors front and center, with a knife, bottle opener, two screwdrivers, nail file, ruler, toothpick and tweezers available in its handles. It’s a setup that’s more practical for general users who don’t find a daily need for pliers or more specialized tools like awls and wire cutters, and with a 2.5-inch length when closed it’ll fit neatly on the keychain you already carry. — Tanner Bowden
Kamado Joe XL Grill
Save 21%: The Kamado Joe is a heavy, ceramic, heat-retaining, outdoor grill, smoker and oven that’s backed by a lifetime warranty. In some ways, it’s a Big Green Egg that you can buy online (Eggs are only sold by certified retailers on location). But it comes with features the Big Green Egg doesn’t — a “Divide & Conquer cooking” system, ash drawer and a much better-fitting lid. The former is a cooking system that allows grates to slide up or down in certain sections to grill different foods at different temperatures and the latter two are just really nice convenience bonuses.
Uniqlo Rain Jackets Sale
Right now you can pick up a Uniqlo rain jacket for under $100. With spring right around the corner, you’re going to need a proper rain jacket to handle commutes, travel and more. There are five different styles available, each under $100. Pick from a deep brown, navy or forest green, all in a boxy fit with vintage accents. Tomorrow is the official start to spring, so now’s the best time to stock up and save over $50 on a new style. — Meg Lappe
Ultimate Ears Boom 3 Speaker
Save $30: Like its predecessors, the Ultimate Ears Boom 3 speaker boasts 360-degree stereo audio output and holds a reputation for go-anywhere ruggedness. It also packs some noteworthy upgrades like wireless charging (dock sold separately) and Ultimate Ears’s new “Magic Button” control interface.
While you could always go for a similar speaker from Bose or Sony, the Boom 3 offers a lot of durability and plenty of sound in a well-designed package. A good value at its MRSP of $150, you can pick up the Boom 3 today for just $120. — Andy Frakes
