MONDAY, MAY 20


Raen Remmy Polarized Sunglasses
Save 50%: Today at Nordstrom, you can save 50 percent on some excellent sunglasses from the California-based brand Raen. Typically these sturdy, high-quality shades would run you upwards of $140 per pair, but thanks to this sale you can grab some before beach season hits for much, much less. Nordstrom carries a whole range of eyewear from Raen — and there are a lot of great options — but if your first priority is a good deal, you can’t go wrong with the polarized Remmy style. — John Zientek


Seiko Baby Monster Dive Watch
Save Over 50%: Right now, you can nab a Seiko 5 SRP48X “Baby Monster” for just $139, which is over half-off an MSRP of $320. The Baby Monster, which is available in both white and orange dials, features now-iconic thick lumed indices and hands, a stainless steel 43mm case with 100m of water resistance, a mineral crystal, a notched unidirectional dive bezel and Seiko’s 4R36 automatic movement with day-date complication, which is viewable via an exhibition case back. — Oren Hartov


Patagonia Black Hole Duffel Sale
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

Adidas Ultraboost Sale
Save 20%: Pick up a pair of Adidas’s feel-good running sneakers for just $144 today. The Adidas Ultraboost is normally $180 but is 20 percent off. Here at Gear Patrol, the Boost sneakers we’ve tested have been some of our favorites — including the Solarboost — one of our best new running shoes of 2019, that’s also 50 percent off today, too. The hype around the new Adidas Ultraboost 19 is real, which means the original Ultraboost has been on sale quite frequently this year, but who know how long that will last. It’s responsive, so each footfall is soft yet fast. You can’t go wrong with a Boost purchase. — Meg Lappe

Goal Zero Yeti 1000 Portable Power Station
Save 25%: Goal Zero’s Yeti 1000 is one of the best portable power stations you can buy and today you can score a pretty rare deal on one. The normally $1,100 battery is down to just $825 right now on REI’s website; plus shipping is free if you pick it up at your nearest brick-and-mortar REI store.


Simplehuman Rectangular Step Trash Can
Save $20: Simplehuman’s top-of-the-line Rectangular Step Trash Can is engineered to last 150,000 steps (about 20 years of normal use); it features patented technology that dampens the noise from opening and closing the lid; its internal hinge is designed in such a way that you can place it against the wall without scratching it; and, perhaps most importantly, it’s airtight and keeps foul odors at bay.


Apple AirPods (First Generation)
Save $30: Apple introduced its second-generation AirPods a few months ago and, in doing so, started to phase out its original AirPods. As for comparison, the new AirPods are a little better than the originals — they can pair quicker to your iPhone and you can just say “Hey Siri” to initiate the voice assistant (no double tap needed) — but they look and sound the same. The good news is that since the new models are here, you’re going to see more frequent deals on the original AirPods. For example, you can buy them for $129 on eBay right now, which saves you $30. Essentially, if you don’t want to pay the $159 premium for AirPods, you don’t absolutely have to.


TUESDAY, MAY 21


Seiko Recraft Series Chronograph
Save 45%: For under $200, the Recraft may be the perfect fun summer chronograph — it charges via ambient light and features fun 1970s looks, 100m of water resistance and a matching NATO strap. — Oren Hartov


Essential Summer Sneakers
Save 55%: If you’re looking to get some fresh new kicks before the summer months, head over to Zappos today. Right now, you can save up to 55 percent on a range of white sneakers from brands like Converse, PF Flyers and Superga. Most styles are well under $50, so if you see something you like, act fast — it won’t be around for long. — John Zientek


Everything at Levi’s
Save 30%: If the warmer spring weather has you dreaming of a new wardrobe, you’re in luck. Levi’s is offering 30 percent off everything on its website including clothing, shoes and accessories that are already discounted. So if you want to get a classic western shirt, a denim trucker jacket or even just a great pair of jeans, you won’t have to break the bank to do it. Just be sure to use the code FUNSUN at checkout to take advantage of the deal. — John Zientek


Persol Sunglasses
Save 71%: If you’ve been waiting to invest in an iconic pair of Persol sunglasses, Nordstrom Rack has a deal for you. Right now, you can save 71 percent on three different Italian-made Persols: the Aviator, the Sartoria and the Pilot models. Normally $350, these shades are now just $100 while supplies last. — John Zientek


Naglev Unico Hiker
Save 10%: A pair of handmade hiking boots can cost as much as $750, but right now there’s a pair made by a small Italian brand called Naglev available for $208, which is 10 percent off its regular price of $230. Before you discount that as small change, know that the shoe, called the Unico Hiker, is unlike any other hiking shoe available (it’s also on our list of the best hiking boots available).

Naglev is based in the Alps, where outdoor footwear was invented, and it created the Unico to function as a middle ground between a hiking boot and a trail running sneaker. It calls to mind approach shoes (sturdy, low-cut hiking shoes typically used by rock climbers who face long treks through technical terrain on the way to a climb) but it’s built much differently. The upper is made of one single piece of Kevlar fabric — yes, the same stuff used to make body armor — and its inside is lined with a with a sock-like wool liner. This construction creates a remarkably durable shoe that’s unexpectedly comfortable, and entirely unique. — Tanner Bowden


Bowers & Wilkins PX Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $100: The Bowers & Wilkins PX are the company’s flagship noise-canceling headphones and they are $100 off on Amazon right now — it’s the cheapest they’ve ever been. The discounted headphones are available in both colors, space grey or gold. If you’re looking for high-end noise-canceling headphones that look beautiful and sound excellent (and cost less than the Bose QuietComfort 35 II and the Sony WH-1000XM3), these are great headphones to consider. — Tucker Bowe


Garmin Forerunner 935 Smartwatch
Save 19%: The Garmin Forerunner 935 is one of the best GPS smartwatches for serious runners, and today you can get it on Amazon for the cheapest it’s ever been. The normally $500 smartwatch is almost $100 off. — Tucker Bowe


Oxo Nonstick Frypans
Starting at $30: Cast-iron skillets are great for cooking steaks and bacon, but when it comes to eggs and all manner of fish, you’re better off reaching for a nonstick frying pan like those in Oxo’s pro line — they feature three layers of nonstick coating that prevent delicate foods from sticking but also make cleaning a breeze. There’s no plastic, either, so feel free to throw these suckers in the oven to finish off a chicken breast. The 8-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch sizes are all discounted on Amazon, starting at just $30. — Jack Seemer


REI, Janji and Biolite Memorial Day Sales
Save 50%: With Memorial Day Weekend just around the corner, the big sales are starting to crop up already. Brands try to get ahead of the rush with a week-long relay push until Monday. We’ve rounded up a few of the top sales that start right now, so you can make sure to stock your cart with all the good stuff. — Meg Lappe


WEDNESDAY, MAY 22


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


THURSDAY, MAY 23


Au Sabot L’Armor Mariner’s Knife
Save 40%: There’s a reason why knife blades come in various shapes — intended use is the primary one. Take Au Sabot’s L’Armor, a folding pocket knife with a somewhat blunted tip, for example. That shape is called a Sheepsfoot, not only because it resembles, in a way, an ovine hoof, but also because it’s a shape that has historically been used for farm work.

Au Sabot’s sheepsfoot knife references sailors though, not shepherds — specifically, 19th Century sailors embarking from England with a similar looking tool called The London. Characterized by a straight cutting edge and a spine that curves down to meet it at the point, sheepsfoot blades were ideal for seamen because the wide angle of the point helps prevent accidental puncture while, say, working on rigging while floating on an undulating ocean. The flat edge is ideal for slicing and straightforward cutting tasks. Sheepsfoot knives are practical by design, a fact that hasn’t changed in over two hundred years — today, the shape is often favored by emergency response teams.

Au Sabot’s L’Armor pocket knife still has that function at its heart, but it adds an appropriate amount of flair too. The four-inch blade is made of Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel, a well-rounded Swedish steel known for its hardness and toughness (it’s often used to make ice skate blades) and is available with handles made of palo santo, olive or horn. All three are currently available at Huckberry for 40 percent off (part of the discount applies after you drop it in your cart). — Tanner Bowden


Timex Expedition Scout Field Watch
Save 50%:
This particular iteration of the Timex Expedition Scout field watch features a modern 40mm brass case, a 20mm lug width for use with a variety of aftermarket straps, and INDIGLO lighting (push the crown in and the dial lights up). For $30, this is the perfect beater watch for hiking, climbing and more. — Oren Hartov


Everlane’s “Pay What You Want” Sale
Save up to 30%: Thanks to one of Everlane’s “pay what you want” sales, you can save 30 percent on a range of warm-weather essentials you’ll need as temperatures climb. The sale also includes a healthy selection of fall and winter necessities like fleeces, sweaters, parkas and jackets at reduced prices — perfect if you want to get ahead of the seasonal shopping curve. — Andy Frakes


Suunto Watches Memorial Day Sale
Save $60:If you’re looking for a tracker that will log your every step, lap and CrossFit move, look no further than the Suunto 3 Fitness, which is currently $60 off. I tested the watch last year and loved how it monitored my bike commuting minutes, running and hiking miles — even open mile swim. With over 70 sports to choose from, this tracker will log every single one.

If that’s not quite the right device for you, the newest model is the Suunto 5 ($329) with over 80 sport modes, adaptive training (that changes based on your past workouts) and stress tracking.

However, The Suunto 3 Fitness isn’t the only watch on sale today at Clever Training. A few other standouts include the Suunto 9 G1 Baro GPS (great for hiking and backcountry riding), the Suunto Spartan Trainer (ideal for triathletes). Shop the rest of the deal here. — Meg Lappe


Bulova Chronograph C
Save 62%: With an unbeatable style and colorful red-white-and-blue dial, this funky chronograph features Bulova’s High Performance Quartz movement and premium materials like domed sapphire crystal. It also hints at the brand’s roots as an American company that was prolific in the era from which this watch takes its inspiration (’60s-’70s). At 62% off its retail price of $750, it’s also a steal right now on Amazon for just $285. — Zen Love


Iron and Resin Sale
Save up to 75%: Born out of the need for more handmade goods to support the founders’ surf- and motorcycle-centric lifestyles, Iron and Resin apparel is made for and by people who embrace the worlds of the sea and the street. From the waxed canvas jackets, worker pants and riding gloves to the fleece hoodies and board shorts, there’s no mistaking Iron and Resin’s natural California style and timeless appeal. For today through to Memorial Day, select apparel is on sale up to 75% off, so now’s the time to stock up for the seasons ahead. — Bryan Campbell


Sonos Certified Refurbished Speakers, Soundbars and Sub
Save up to $150: If you’re in the market for a Sonos speaker, the company is having a big certified refurbished sale. You can get a pretty great deal on three speakers: the Play:1, Play:5 and One. Or you can save big on the Playbar (soundbar) and Sub (wireless subwoofer). The only Sonos speakers that you won’t be able to find a deal on are the Beam (smart soundbar) and Playbase (sound base).


FRIDAY, MAY 24


Oak Street Bootmakers
Save up to 40%: The old adage goes something like this: Invest in your shoes, your sheets and your car tires, because they come between you and the ground. And common wisdom will tell you if you’re not currently using one — shoes, sheets or tires — you’re almost certainly using another. When properly cared for, an excellent pair of shoes or boots can last for a very long time, making them all the more investment-worthy from a cost-per-wear standpoint.

Even with that in mind, spending hundreds of dollars up front on a pair of shoes can be a tough sell when there are inexpensive (or downright cheap) pairs beckoning from the bargain aisle. We get that. It’s why we’re all the more excited about a sale event from the premiere American footwear producers at Oak Street Bootmakers, where you can save 20, 30 or even 40% on boots, shoes, loafers and moccasins made to last. Check out the full sale here. — Andy Frakes


Huckberry Backpack Memorial Day Sale
Save 40%:Evergoods first two backpacks, the Civic Panel Loader and the Mountain Panel Loader — or CPL24 and MPL30 for short — are on sale at Huckberry for 40 percent off right now. There are two reasons why you should take note of this.

Firstly, Evergoods is the brand to watch right now when it comes to backpacks. The small company is lead by Jack Barley, one of the original co-founders of GORUCK, and Kevin Dee, a former product engineer at Patagonia. Their combined expertise produces backpacks that are truly multi-purpose; the CPL24 works as an ideal around-town pack but has features, like a hydration sleeve and ports, that make it suitable for hiking too. On the other side, the MPL30 has an integrated hipbelt and lightweight aluminum frame for supporting heavier loads on the trail but includes a sleeve that can accommodate a laptop around town.

Secondly, Evergoods is still small, and its backpacks can sell out. To find them on sale is rarer still. If you are considering one of these two bags, how you plan on using it will guide your choice. If you need a hiking bag, go with the MPL30. If it’s an everyday pack that you’re looking for the CPL24 is the one. We’ve spent a lot of time with this bag in particular, and consider it to be the best all-purpose backpack available. Period. “This bag is simple, durable and understated,” notes one of our editors. “It’s got GoRuck vibes without screaming mil-spec intensity.” Simply put, nobody else is making a backpack like this.
— Meg Lappe


Berucci A-2TR Vintage
Save 50%: This A-2TR Vintage model offers the same titanium case construction (here, 40mm) and Swiss quartz movement that make Bertucci field watches easy to recommend for the price, but it includes a rotating bezel that is useful for timing in a range of situations. Right now, the A-2TR is on sale at Drop for just $125, half-off its retail price of $250, on your choice of black or green straps. — Zen Love


6 Awesome Camping Essentials Are on Sale This Weekend
Save up to 50%: It’s too late to upgrade your camping setup for the holiday weekend, but it’s the perfect time to take advantage of sales for as much as 50 percent off at retailers like REI, Backcountry and Huckberry to ensure that you’re well prepared for summer. — Tanner Bowden


Audioengine A5+ Wireless Bookshelf Speakers
Save $50: The Audioengine A5+ Wireless are some of our favorite bookshelf speakers and, as part of World Wide Stereo’s special Memorial Day sale, you can save $50 of them right now — normally $499, the speakers cost $449 after you enter the promo code MEMDAY at checkout.

|


Satisfy Memorial Day Sale
Save $80+:Satisfy makes some of the best running apparel in the world, but it also happens to be one of the most expensive, which is why we can’t believe that it’s on sale right now. The high-performance apparel company, founded by Brice Partouche, pulls heavily from his fashion background, and seamlessly blends technical features into every item. The minimalist and worn-in looks feature mostly black and white designs in a fabric that never chafes. Testers claim the gear is the best they’ve ever worn. The brand rarely has sales, so we’re shocked to find it up to 30 percent off. Sizes are limited, but shop while you can — these prices are likely never to be seen again. — Meg Lappe


Velomacchi Memorial Day Sale
Save up to 25%: A commute on two wheels can be the harshest part of your day, whether you cycle to and from work under your own power or sit over an internal combustion engine. The elements, the traffic, the exposure, it all takes a toll on you and the gear you use, so it makes sense to invest in durable equipment that lasts. Velomacchi uses designs, technology and construction fit for the National Gaurd and military Spec Ops, so it stands to reason something like the 28L Speedway Backpack can handle your nine-to-five rat race. Starting today and running until midnight on Memorial Day, Velomacchi is running a sale not just on its bags, but the entire site, where everything is 25 percent off. — Bryan Campbell
