Leading an active and athletic life can take its toll on your body. There are plenty of ways to jumpstart your recovery and get you feeling your best, but a good night’s sleep is a sure way to make a difference. 

The Zoma Sports Mattress is a performance-enhancing sleep system designed to deliver enhanced rest and rejuvenation no matter how demanding your workouts are, so you can get up and get back at it. Using cutting-edge design and technology, Zoma facilitates faster muscle recovery, improved athletic performance, and deeper sleep through three distinct layers perfect for those individuals with active lifestyles. 

The mattress is wrapped in a soft, lightweight cover that wicks away heat and moisture, keeping you cool throughout the night. Inside, there is the Triangulex™ pain relief layer, engineered with hundreds of triangular segments grouped into targeted comfort zones designed to soothe aching muscles. It also reduces pain-causing pressure points by up to 49%. 

The second layer consists of Reactiv™ material that contours to your body and minimizes motion transfer. Lastly, Zoma features its high-density Support+ core to provide long-lasting durability. With these unique layers, you get the perfect blend of comfort, pressure-relief, responsiveness, and support — whether you’re a pro athlete or living an active life.

Each Zoma Sports Mattress comes with a 10-year full warranty and a 100-night, risk-free trial. Plus, get free shipping and save $100 off your purchase with the code GEARPATROL100.

L.L.Bean Labor Day Sale
Save up to 76%: Since its founding in 1912 by Maine woodsman Leon Leonwood Bean, L.L.Bean has produced a number of products that have become so recognizable that they transcend the brand name. Most of these things are rooted in utility. Its first item, the Maine Hunting Shoe, became somewhat of a draft for the universal Bean Boot and its omnipresent canvas tote bags originally hauled ice and wood. That function-first ethos still exists in the newer things, like school backpacks and synthetic jackets, that the company produces today.

All of these things, and many, many more, are currently on sale through Labor Day for 70 percent off plus another 20 percent off after that with the discount code GREAT20. That math comes out to potential savings of 76 percent. Below are some of the things that we’re pulling out our wallets for. — Tanner Bowden

A Giant Labor Day Sale on Motorcycle Gear
Save Up to 60%: It’s that time, y’all: Summer is winding down, and the leaves will be falling soon enough. As such, RevZilla has seen fit to to let some prices fall with them. Although there’s an obvious downside to colder weather for motorcycle riders, there’s also an upside: gear, gear, gear. It’s the best time of year for riders who love gear. You can shop for jackets without sweating in the store. Boot shopping no longer requires the removal of sandals and a barefoot fit test. Autumn, it’s safe to say, is the best time for anyone who rides and wants to look good doing it.

There’re too many deals in this sale to post them all here, so we’ve gone through the list and picked a few of our favorites. But act fast: Some of these deals end as soon as Labor Day. — Peter Corn

Polk Audio Command Bar
Save $100: Polk Audio’s Command Bar is one of the best entry-level soundbars available, and it’s on sale right now. The normally $300 soundbar (which comes with a wireless subwoofer) is $100 off if you shop at either Best Buy or Amazon. Part of its allure, other than improving your TV’s sound, is that Command Bar has built-in Amazon Alexa — similar to the Sonos Beam. This means you can use your voice to do things like raise or lower the TV volume, play music from Spotify or Pandora or control the smart home devices in the rest of your house, should you have any.
