Fresh Deals

Marathon Military Watches
Save 25%: Marathon is a Canadian company making some badass military watches, many of which have seen action with Canadian, U.S. and other armed forces over the years. Right now three of their watches are on sale on Huckberry, including the Medium Divers Quartz (TSAR) in 36mm; the General Purpose Quartz in 39mm; and the Search and Rescue Medium Diver’s Automatic (GSAR) in 36mm. If you’re looking for a medium-sized dive watch, both the quartz and automatic models are serious tools and highly comfortable, and if a simple field watch will do the trick, the General Purpose Quartz is all you need. — Oren Hartov


A Giant Sale on Some of the Best Cool Motorcycle Helmets
Save Up to 53%: If you’re reading this, odds are good you know we here at Gear Patrol are always looking out for you motorcycle riders out there — and your heads in particular. Well, so are the fine folks at Revzilla by offering a bunch of great helmets at low prices in their closeout sale. With deals on some of the coolest-looking helmets from great brands like Schuberth, Bell and Arai, this is a sale you won’t want to miss. — Peter Corn


Eddie Bauer Summer Sale
Save 50%: In 2017, Eddie Bauer released its EverTherm Down Jacket and changed our perception of what down can look like. Rather than a horde of tiny feathers stuffed into horizontal baffles, EverTherm’s insulation is arranged in fabric-like sheets called Thindown. The construction prevents the need for that quilted look but also eliminates cold spots created by stitching, producing more warmth for less weight.

The EverTherm’s innovation was undeniable on paper, and when we put the jacket to the test, we found that it wasn’t all marketing jargon. The coat is impressive, and it’s certainly worthy of use in the mountains and around town, too, considering the lack of baffles makes it look less technical than most down jackets, which could be a boon to city-dwellers. For these reasons, we named it one of the best of the year and included it in our guide to the Best Down Jackets.

The EverTherm is only in its third season, but with Eddie Bauer’s current sale you can snag it for 50 percent off. If you need a down jacket for the inevitable cold of fall and winter, the EverTherm is a great option to consider.

BioLite Emergency Prep Kits
Save up to $75: Emergency preparedness is no joke, but taking it seriously doesn’t mean you need to dig a concrete bunker in your backyard. Beyond a plan of action, it’s smart to have a few essential items stashed away in a known place. BioLite is removing the guesswork from creating that gear list with its new Prep Kits, which cover light, power and drinking water for different living situations (there’s a solo kit, an apartment kit, and a family home kit).

The Prep Kits are essentially BioLite product bundles that bring together its HeadLamp, SunLight, and SolarHome with LifeStraw’s portable water filtration systems. In doing that, the company is cutting the total cost of these individual products by 15 percent, which levels out the family kit by $75. All together, these items are still small, highly stashable and efficiently provide survival basics should the power and water go out. — Tanner Bowden


Krups Coffee Grinder & Scale
Save 25%: You have to have a grinder to drink fresh coffee and you need a scale to make consistently fresh pots. Together, both devices typically cost anywhere from $150 to $200 (or more). Today on Amazon, cop both in one machine for barely $100.

Usually around $130, the Krups coffee grinder with scale is discounted to $105 today. Now all you need is better coffee. — Will Price
