This last feature is a unique one that allows users can find that right balance of flavor and effect. For the price, it’s hard to beat this kind of functionality.

Arc’teryx Granville Backpack
Save $85: Among our choices for the best waterproof backpacks, Arc’teryx’s Granville is perhaps the most stylish, and it’s currently on sale for 38 percent off at Mountain Steals. The Granville is a flip-top bag that comes in muted colors and employs an aesthetic that underplays its technical edge. The lid closes with an integrated magnetic clasp and hides a small pocket for essentials like keys or a wallet. Its main compartment includes a padded laptop sleeve and organizing sleeves for chargers and other essentials. The Granville is an excellent example of Arc’teryx pulling its outdoor tech into an urban-oriented item to make it better suited to the real rigors of daily life, like walking or riding a bike in the rain.

Todd Snyder x Champion Sportswear
Save up to 30%: Between Champion’s iconic sportswear and Todd Snyder’s mature-yet-contemporary tailored menswear, there is a lot to love. So it’s no surprise that when the brands joined forces on a collection of sturdy sweats and off-duty styles, it was a natural fit. Rather than the somewhat baggy, casual styling Champion is known for — ideal for exercise and weekend lounging — this line is comprised of modern silhouettes in throwback colors cut from Champion’s distinctive reverse-weave cotton.

So if you’re looking to upgrade your out-of-office attire, look no further — you can snap up cozy crewnecks, slimmed-down joggers, retro-inspired graphic tees and more for up to 30 percent off right now.
