Yeti Hopper Two 30 Soft-Sided Cooler
Save $60: Like getting a bonefish on the line or achieving the perfect smoke ring on a brisket, finding a deal on a Yeti cooler is tricky. More than anything else, it takes dedication and patience — when the moment of action arises, it requires swift decision-making (and a willingness to accept cut-rate analogies) if it’s not to be missed. That moment is now; Yeti recently dropped the price on one of its original soft-sided coolers, the Hopper Two 30, from $300 to $240.
Yeti made the Hopper Two 30 with its DryHide Shell, which is waterproof from the outside, leak-proof from the inside and resolutely puncture-resistant. It has a super-strong waterproof zipper and a shoulder strap that makes carrying it easy when it’s filled to the brim. It’s one of the best soft coolers at keeping ice frozen and drinks and food cold. If $240 still seems like a hefty price tag, remember that this thing is made to last a lifetime. — Tanner Bowden
Save 52%: The shockingly tough INOX is one of Victorinox Swiss Army’s most popular models and built to withstand a range of (130, to be exact) stress tests. A Swiss quartz movement means it will be super accurate as well as robust with scratch-proof sapphire crystal, robust steel construction, and a water-resistance of 200m. Right now, you can get it on a bracelet with a cool olive green dial for over half off retail price at Nordstrom Rack. — Zen Love
Oakley Sunglasses Sale
Save 60%:If you don’t yet have the perfect pair of summer shades, today is a great day to change that. Head to eBay to shop a plethora of Oakley and Ray-Ban sunglasses, all under $60.
