Today in Gear: A First-Time Collaboration for Oris, the One Place to Get Lagavulin’s New Whisky & More
In a first-time collaboration, Oris teamed up with Timeless Luxury Watches for a custom watch. The special edition Divers Sixty-Five has a wrist-friendly 40mm case and a vintage look you’d expect. It also has hints of bronze throughout the design and a new deep olive dial that stands out just the right amount. The watch’s bezel really shines, with only a faint overhang on the case — making it easy to grab onto — and a noticeably domed sapphire crystal giving the watch a unique silhouette. As far as how to strap one on, the Divers Sixty-Five comes with a leather option and an exclusive tropic rubber band with quick release. Be sure to pre-order the Timeless Sixty-Five Limited Edition while you can.

If you’re in the market for some new footwear and have been waiting for a good sale, head over to Allen Edmonds today.

Scottish-Made Sweaters by Howlin’
Save up to 50%: If you’re already stocking your fall wardrobe with new garments fit for crisp mornings, head over to End today. Currently, you can save up to 50 percent on some ridiculously cool Scottish-made sweaters from Howlin’. The pure wool knits have a classic silhouette and feature ribbing at the collar, cuffs and hem.
Unlike many traditional sweaters, they come in throwback colors and wild patterns. You can tell by the sweater names — “Birth of the Cool,” “Disco Dancer,” “Fall in Paradise” — the brand is anything but stuffy. Normally priced around $260, these sweaters are now as little as $109. — John Zientek

Apple AirPods 2
Save $20: Apple’s second-generation AirPods with a wireless charging case are on sale on Amazon right now. The normally $200 package is selling for $180 right now, so it’s saving you $20 bucks. As a reminder, the new AirPods have Apple’s new H1 chip and that allows them to pair quicker to your iPhone and use “Hey Siri” completely hands-free Siri capabilities. Other than that, they look and sound the exact same as the first-generation AirPods. — Tucker Bowe
Marpac Dohm White Noise Machine
Save $14: Since 1962, Marpac’s entire purpose has been rather singular: making people sleep better. The Dohm white noise generator is its most known, recommended and, arguably, most effective product. The Dohm is a small, sci-fi-looking sleep accessory that is about as simple as it gets to operate (turn it on and twist the top until you like the emitted sound). It comes recommended by the likes of Wirecutter, Health, Sleep Advisor and many more, too. — Will Price
Patagonia Black Hole Backpack
Save $50: The 30-liter pack includes all the features you’d want in an everyday bag — multiple pockets, organizers for small essentials, exterior water bottle sleeves — and uses the same hardwearing TPU-laminated ripstop fabric in an everyday bag that’s well suited to commuting and shorter adventures.
Similar to the Black Hole duffel, the Black Hole Pack uses a wide opening to access its main compartment, which has a sleeve for a laptop or a hydration reservoir as well as smaller pockets for essential items. Unhindered by other unnecessary features, the bag is left to do what it should: provide ample space for whatever it is you might need to carry. — Tanner Bowden
Hyperlite Camping Sale
Save Up to 20%: Hyperlite makes some of the lightest, yet most durable tents and hiking packs using the magic material, Dyneema. While the gear is remarkably simple, it’s also incredibly tough — after all Dyneema is 15 times stronger than steel. Right now, you can upgrade all your camping necessities thanks to the brand’s up to 20 percent off sale. Check out the Ultamid 2 Pyramid tent, the stuff sack pillows, and more to prep for Labor Day camp activities, leaf-peeping and beyond. — Meg Lappe
AGV Pista GP R Carbon Winter Test 2018 Helmet
Save 44%: The AGV Pista GP R Carbon series is essentially the top-of-the-line MotoGP motorcycle race helmet. AGV uses a super-light 100-percent carbon fiber shell and optimizes it in the wind tunnel for optimal stability, aerodynamics, and ventilation. It also has an integrated, no-fuss hydration system.
Splurging on a helmet is not abnormal. It is, after all, the most important piece of gear a motorcycle rider can buy. But, even for the everyday rider willing to spend, the AGV Pista GP R Carbon tends to be overkill for an off-the-rack helmet, with pricing sitting at around $1,600. That calculation may change with this massive discount: RevZilla is currently having a closeout sale on the 2018 Winter Test graphic version of the helmet, a limited-edition collaboration worn by seven-time MotoGP champ Valentino Rossi. You can now get it for just $900 — a $700 discount.
One potential drawback to that helmet, however — the color pattern is a bit much. Fortunately for those who prefer a bit less exuberance, this more sedate Project 46 2.0 version of the AGV Pista GP R Carbon is available on RevZilla with an identical discount. — Tyler Duffy
