Patagonia’s Best Products Are Rarely This Affordable
Save up to 50%: Patagonia makes top-notch outdoor gear, but it isn’t always affordable. This sale offers up to 50 percent off on some of its best products. — Tanner Bowden
Lodge Pan Scrapers
Save $7: Best used while the pan is still warm, these accessories let you scrape up all the gunk from your cast-iron skillet without tearing up your hard-won seasoning. Today on Amazon, the scrapers are marked down from their usual $10 price tag to an even more acceptable $3. — Will Price
Orient Mako II Dive Watch
Save 60%: Japanese brand Orient offers some of the best value in mechanical watches, of which the Ray II Automatic is a perfect example. Legible, water-resistant to 200m, topped with a mineral crystal, and packing an automatic movement with 40 hours of power reserve, this is a handsome and highly wearable diver with a 41.5mm case. — Oren Hartov
Sony WH-CH700N Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $145: The Sony WH-CH700N, for example, came out in 2018 and is definitely a more affordable alternative to the Sony WH-1000XM3. It delivers good noise-canceling, a long battery life (up to 35 hours on a single charge) and the ability to quick charge. Normally $200, you can get a refurbished pair for just $55 on eBay right now.— Tucker Bowe
There’s a Massive Sale on Motorcycle Helmets Right Now
Save Up to 45%: Whether full-face helmets, three-quarter shells, or dirt bike setups are your preferred style, there’s an opportunity to save hundreds of dollars, with many of the helmets upwards of 40% off. — Bryan Campbell
Take 25% Off This Navy SEAL- Designed TRX Workout System
Save 25%: For a limited time, you can purchase any of TRX’s training essentials from Huckberry and save up to 25%. It’s much cheaper — and more mobile — than a gym membership. — Tanner Bowden
Levi’s Jeans, Jackets and More
Save 50%:If you’ve been waiting for a chance to stock up on some solid wardrobe basics, head over to Levi’s today. Currently, you can save 50 percent on a huge range of clothing at the End of Season Sale. Choose from jeans, jackets, tees and more — the prices are hard to beat. — John Zientek
Brother HL-L2350DW Laser Printer
Save $20: The Brother HL-L2350DW isn’t the most advanced printer in the world. It’s a few years old and can’t produce the same level of detail and image quality as other printers — which cost two or three times the price. It also can’t print anything in color. But if want a simple and dependable printer for your home office, this is what you want.— Tucker Bowe
JackRabbit’s Nike Running and Training Sneaker Sale
Save 30%:If you’re in the market for a new pair of running shoes or gym sneakers now’s the time to shop at JackRabbit thanks to an additional 30 percent off Nike’s top performing sneakers. The best-selling running shoes are up to $45 off in a couple of colors and the trail runner’s favorite sneaker, theTerra Kiger 5, are less than $100 for a limited time. You’ll have to poke around to find your size and the perfect color. — Meg Lappe
Herman Miller Aeron
Save 55%: By virtually any measure, Herman Miller’s Aeron task chair is one of, if not the, greatest desk chair of all-time. Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick’s design features supreme adjustability: seat height, arm height, lumbar support, reclining tension and forward and rear tilt locks. It was the first successful integration of airy mesh into task chair design. Shoot, it even earned a spot in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection. Fair or not, any company that releases a high-end office chair today must bear comparison to the Aeron.
Today, the Aeron is 55 percent off on Ebay. These specific products are open-box models, which means they’re somewhere between new and used — so it’s fair to approach with caution (it may be worth contacting the seller before dropping close to $500). That said, this is about as affordable as an Aeron will go for. — Will Price
Seiko Dive Watches
Save Up to 45%%: Right now, a whole bunch of Seiko’s dive watches are on sale, just in time for the weather to heat up and swim trunks to make their way into heavy rotation in your wardrobe. Pick up a Prospex, the famed “Turtle” and more at a solid discount.— Oren Hartov
