One of our favorite outdoor outfitters has the perfect raincoat for those fall showers that are already upon us. The Kiwi stalwart Kathmandu has dreamed up a rain jacket that can go anywhere. The ideal urban shower companion, the Stockton rain jacket is streamlined and sleek enough for your everyday wear to and from the office, but rugged enough for anything. An insulated and seam-sealed coat made of waterproof, windproof and breathable fabric, the jacket can face any downpour without issue. It is also highly sustainable which is always a plus, crafted with outer shell fabric made from recycled plastic bottles, recycled fabric lining and insulation. And with a slightly longer length, it gives you optimal protection down to your thigh. The Stockton may be your favorite piece of kit this year.

Fresh Deals


Lodge Cast-Iron Cookware Set
Save More than 50%: Lodge’s four-piece cast iron set is for those who’ve caught the cast iron bug but lack the wallet. Discounted by 25 percent, the set includes Lodge’s standard 10.25-inch skillet, a Dutch oven and a griddle, all for under $50. That’s cheaper than any single, standard-sized skillet from boutique cast-iron cookware brands launched in the last few years. The whole set is made in Lodge’s South Pittsburgh, Tennessee, facility and comes pre-seasoned with vegetable oil. — Will Price

Docker’s Pants, Shirts and More
Save up to 50%: If you’re looking to update your everyday wardrobe with some classic pieces, head over to Dockers today. Currently, you can save up to 50 percent on chinos, shirts and more. With prices this good, things are bound to sell out, so don’t wait. — John Zientek


Breville Coffee Maker
Save $100: Beyond brewing Gold Cup standard pots of coffee and holding an SCA certification, it lets you customize brewing options like flow rate, bloom time and water temperature. It’s the only coffee maker that can brew with flat bottom filters and cone filters. There’s even an attachment that allows you to insert your favorite pour-over brew device and let the machine do the work. Its heating system warms water as it travels to the showerhead, meaning you don’t have to wait minutes for the water to come to temperature and making it literally the fastest coffee maker you can buy. Its downsides, few that they are, are its size and price. It’s worth comparing its height to the space between your countertop and kitchen cabinets. As for price, the machine is $100 off its hefty $300 tag on Amazon right now. — Will Price


NYRR New York City Marathon Fueling Pack
Save 17%: Loads of performance products advertise that your new PR is just a dose away. Very few have the bona fide results to back it up. But we’ve confirmed that the drink Geoffrey Kamworor consumed while breaking the half-marathon world record came from Maurten, a brand we have long believed in, and it’s now a key part of an awesome New York Marathon Fueling Pack on sale for 17 percent off at The Feed.

Of course, you don’t have to be running that actual marathon to benefit from this offer. The sampler includes caffeinated Clif Bloks, Nuun Sport tablets, VitalFit recovery capsules, Amp Human Performance PR Lotion, Sur Alt Red capsules and Run Gum, plus the record-breaking stuff: 6 servings of Maurten Drink Mix and 8 servings of Maurten Gel 100. Order now and you’ll also get an expert guide explaining how to use everything in the pack, as well as two handy drink bottles.
Now, we can’t promise you’ll run a half-marathon in less an hour like Kamworor does, but you will get to experiment with and benefit from a bunch of top-notch performance aids. (Pro tip: Try this stuff out before your big race. Come race day you shouldn’t introduce anything new that could unexpectedly throw off your game.) — Steve Mazzucchi

Sony WH-1000XM3 Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $150: Right now, eBay is selling refurbished Sony WH-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones for under $200. That’s a pretty terrific deal considering these are arguably the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy, and new models typically cost around $350.

If you’ve been wanting to purchase some really great noise-canceling headphones, which are right up there with the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 ($399) and the Bose QuietComfort 35 II, then you should jump on this eBay deal. — Tucker Bowe

Bulova Oceanographer “Devil Diver”
Save 40%: Bulova’s been dipping (“diving?” More appropriate?) into its archives for the last couple years, a popular result of which has been the reintroduction of the famed Oceanographer “Devil Diver,” so-called for its depth rating of 666 ft. Right now, you can grab the Devil Diver for only $477, a 40 percent savings off the list price of $795 (use the extra 20% off code “VIP” at checkout). — Zen Love



One of the Most Iconic Motorcycle Jackets Ever Is Almost $300 Off
Save 20%: It’s not easy to earn a reputation for rugged reliability in the world of motorcycle gear, but Belstaff has been at it for nearly 100 years. Covering the backs of some of the first motorcycle racers at the famed Brooklands track, the first runnings of the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy and even cloaking Che Guevara as documented in his memoir The Motorcycle Diaries, Belstaff has proven itself worthy in the roughest real-world conditions.

As it’s risen to prominence in recent years, Belstaff has entrenched itself in the luxury performance apparel space; as a result, price tags tend to be high across the brand. Today, however, the Classic Tourist Trophy Jacket — one of Belstaff’s most iconic designs — is 20% off at RevZilla, currently selling for just $1,160. –Bryan Campbell
