Patagonia Black Hole Duffel Sale
Save $39: If you’re a Patagonia fan, you’ve likely heard about the fantastic stuff sack-duffel-carry-on known as the Black Hole Duffel. Our staffers turn to this bag when they’re heading to Vermont for a ski weekend, out to Denver for a big convention, moving to a new apartment in the city and even on a month-long trip to Ecuador. The weather-resistant and sturdy bags are built to last a lifetime. The lightweight version is one of our best adventure duffels of 2018, and the 30-liter is our best adventure travel weekenders.
We love the rubberized nylon ripstop fabric and how it holds up to airport carousels as well as in the under-carriage bus storage. The internal compression straps rope everything into place, as do the pockets. The removable shoulder straps allow you to carry it as a backpack or as a duffel. Right now, you can pick up a 60-liter bag for just $90.30 in a variety of colors. — Meg Lappe
Tons of Home Goods
Save Up to 80%: Live at noon today, Way Day is Wayfair’s version of Prime Day. This is to say that, other than Prime Day, it’s one of the largest sales on the internet.
Wayfair is set to mark down huge tracts of inventory (Curbed reported more than 100,000 items) on its site and across its range of other home goods stores — AllModern, Birch Lane and Joss & Main. Expect up to 80 percent off rugs, cheap outdoor furniture, lighting, mirrors and, best of all, free shipping. Wayfair also stocks a selection of kitchen gear from brands like Kitchenaid, Lodge, Cuisinart and Hamilton Beach.
Way Day sales will run now until 11:59 p.m., Thursday, April 11. Happy hunting. — Will Price
Seiko Recraft Solar Chronograph
Save 30%: This colorful and, frankly, awesome-looking chronograph watch seems straight out of the 1970s and, with its matching NATO strap, it will wear boldly with short sleeves. Best of all, it’s on sale now for $252 by using the promo code “SHINE” at checkout, which is about $100 off its full retail price of $350. — Zen Love
Tojiro DP Gyutou Knife
Save $10: Brandt Cox is a former professional chef and cofounder of New Orleans’ Coutelier NOLA knife shop. When we asked him to name the best bang-for-your-buck Japanese chef’s knife, he didn’t hesitate. “[The Tojiro DP Series] is one of the best price-to-performance value knives we’ve tested or stocked,” he said.
The blade Brandt described as a “gateway drug” into Japanese knives, is on sale today — shoppers can save a modest $10 on the 8.2-inch Tojiro DP Gyutou. The DP series Gyutou is made with hardwearing, wear-resistant VG10 knife steel and the classically thin bevels of a Japanese kitchen knife, but it also sports a western ergonomic-focused handle most Japanese knife newbs are familiar with. Don’t forget to sharpen it. — Will Price
END Clothing Nike Sale
Save up to 50%: Retro-inspired windbreakers and fleeces are a great way to ward off the chill during your early-morning jogs, and few athletic brands do retro-inspired activewear as well as Nike. Today at END Clothing you can find a massive range of Nike spring essentials — most notably these windbreakers and fleeces — for 30 to 50 percent off list price. Choose from color-blocked windbreakers and fleeces, discounted trainers and sneakers, comfy sweats and throwback hoodies for all the blustery, half-rainy days coming your way, not to mention cool summer nights further down the road. — Andy Frakes
