Today In Gear: The Feed’s Recovery Essentials, the Most Clever Camping Trailer We’ve Seen & More


May 22, 2019 Briefings By

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.


If you consider yourself an athlete, taking your recovery seriously is imperative. It can be crucial to realizing your gains after putting in countless hours of training. Recovering meaningfully however, requires proper gear that’s often pricey. Things like Theragun’s G3 deep muscle treatment device, for instance, can be extremely helpful for athletes that run tight, and can be used 3-4 times a week to stretch and massage the legs and lower back. But the barrier to entry can be high given its $400 price tag.

Thanks to The Feed, now’s your chance to score a Theragun G3 for free, plus a Brazyn collapsable roller, PSO-Rite, Wave Tool and more. The Feed is running its Ultimate Recovery Gear Giveaway and will select five winners of a recovery package worth over $800.

The giveaway ends 5/31/19, so act fast.

Fresh Deals


Common Projects Sneakers
Save 30%: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 30 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 $297 — that’s almost unheard of for this brand. — John Zientek


Waterproof Camo Clarks
Save 35%:These boots, a collaboration between End and Clarks, feature a modern pixelated camo leather upper and Vibram rubber outsole, with one pair available in the eye-catching “Earth Pixel” colorway and another pair in the more subdued “Gray Pixel.” Both pairs sport reflective 3M laces and branded pull tabs with military-style attachment loops along the heel. And thanks to a Gore-tex membrane built into the boot, you can stand in ankle-deep water without getting your socks wet.

While these boots are normally $235, End has a full-size run of each for just $155 today. — Andy Frakes


Seiko Prospex PADI Dive Watch
Save Almost 50%: Powered by the cal. V157 quartz movement, the PADI special edition features a 47mm case, Hardlex mineral crystal, date display, Lumibright-coated hands and markers and a unidirectional rotating dive bezel. It’s water-resitant to 200m and features a screw-down crown and case back. Once fully charged, the power reserve on the V157 movement lasts roughly 10 months.
If mechanical watches aren’t your thing, then this PADI special edition could be your water watch this summer.— Oren Hartov


Patagonia Black Hole Duffel
Save 25%: If you’ve never heard of Patagonia’s Black Hole duffel bags, you’ve likely spotted one in an airport, foreign train station or strapped to the roof of an overlander. Patagonia built the weather-resistant and sturdy bags to last decades with a rugged TPU-laminated ripstop nylon. They also include removable backpack straps that make carrying one a breeze, even when it’s fully loaded.

The 60-liter version is arguably the most versatile size; it’s big enough to pack everything you’ll need for a weekend or a week, and it still fits into the overhead bins on planes. We’ve put this bag through its paces on all kinds of adventures, from a ski weekend in Vermont to a month-long trip to Ecuador. It’s one of the best rugged duffel bags available, and right now it’s also 25 percent off at REI through May 27th. — Tanner Bowden


Arc’Teryx Bags
Save 25%:If you’re looking for a versatile bag for all your summer adventures, head over to East Dane today. Currently, you can save 25 percent on a range of packs from Arc’Teryx that will take you from the city to the mountain. Choose from backpacks, duffels, totes and more — prices start at $22. — John Zientek


Arc’Teryx Memorial Day Sale
Save 25%:Arc’Teryx is known for its minimalist aesthetic and its tendency to leave no detail unthought, and the Arc’Teryx Norvan LD represents that beautifully. We tested these breathable trail runners just outside of the city, near Storm King Mountain, as well as upstate near Lake Placid and were impressed by the comfortable fit and powerful grip on the Vibram sole. The Norvan LD GTX are on sale for 25 percent off dropping the price down to a reasonable $146.

Shop these trail runners and a plethora of other items, like jackets, vests, hats, bags and more, all for 25 percent off at Backcountry now through Memorial Day. — Meg Lappe


40% Off Site-Wide at Dockers
Save 40%: While a good pair of khakis is essential for a modern wardrobe, you shouldn’t feel limited by traditional boxier silhouettes. Dockers offers a pile of slim tapered styles, many made with two-percent elastane for comfort. They’re soft, flattering and easy to wear. Available in a wide variety of fits, colors and weights, Docker’s khakis are all 40 percent off today with the code SUMMERTIME. — Andy Frakes
