It’s not every day you can wear a brand’s heritage on your sleeve quite like this new anorak from Haglöfs. Designed with trekking in mind, Haglöfs’ Edge Evo Kurbits Anorak is made from a robust and protective 3-layer Proof Eco fabric that will keep all the elements on the outside with its full water and windproofing. The smock is packed full of rugged detailing (like extra length for added protection) but it’s still stylish enough to pull on any day of the week. While available in a few solid hues, the Anorak also comes in a limited edition Kurbits inspired print — a traditional folk art found in Dalarna, Sweden, the birthplace of Haglöfs’ founder and where the first Haglöfs products were sewn. Made with its signature PROOF™ membrane and careful details, this heritage-inspired smock is an outstanding performance jacket.

Fresh Deals


Yamazaki Home Goods
Save 15%: Its nifty rolling storage cart ($100) is slim and made of steel and real wood — not particle board and plastic screws. Its all-steel wall hanger ($80) is heavy enough to stay put when you hang a dozen coats over it. They even made a trashcan ($50) that does its job and doesn’t look goofy. These pieces and more of Yamazaki’s thrifty organization gear are marked down 15 percent off on Huckberry today.

Seiko Prospex SRPB97 “Orange Samurai” Watch
Save 51%: The playful coloring of the Seiko Prospex SRPB97 “Orange Samurai” is exactly what you want in a summertime timepiece, but its robustness makes it perfect for any season. It has a boldly-colored orange dial, runs Seiko’s proven 4R35 automatic movement and has a chunky case to keep that movement safe at depths up to 200 meters. Best of all, it’s cheap. Right now on Amazon, you can get it for a full 51 percent off. That takes the price down to just $260 from its full retail of $525.

Who Needs Leather? The Perfect Textile Motorcycle Jacket Is Just $175
Save 50%: Fall has officially arrived. The cool weather brings the opportunity to wear the coolest motorcycle gear — but before we fully succumb to the leathers and wool, take advantage of the fact that the extremely cool warm-weather-ready Roland Sands Design Ronin perforated textile jacket is currently featured on sale at RevZilla. The Ronin, like so much classy café racer-style gear, is largely composed of waxed cotton to stand up to a number of different weather conditions. It’s also lined with a cooling mesh interior. Although it is aimed at the around-town café racer rider, it has some adventure-riding features as well, like stretchy cargo stuff pockets and built-in shoulder and elbow pads. Most notable of all: the laser cut perforation that keeps things nice and breezy, but still leaves the jacket tough enough to stand up to abrasion. The Ronin’s cool design (and current sale price of just $175, which is 50% off the usual retail price) will help keep your pits dry during the waning warm months of riding. Or, y’know, you could always buy it now and save it for next spring.

AmazonBasics Kettlebells
Save up to 28%: Kettlebells are a lifetime purchase — once you buy them, they’ll likely outlast you and your workouts. They’re an alternative to those pricey gym memberships, considering you can upgrade your home gym with just one KB. Need somewhere to start? Try AmazonBasics’s 25-pounder, which was already remarkably affordable but is even more so with its current 28 percent discount. Too light? The 35-pound weight is 23 percent off too. CrossFit has helped bolster kettlebells’ reputation as a must-have gym item and a dynamic alternative to dumbbells. They can be used to ramp up the results of rows, deadlifts and squats, and a properly executed kettlebell swing can increase strength, speed and explosiveness. All this from a hunk of iron with a handle attached. AmazonBasics makes its kettlebells from cast iron and coats them in enamel for a smooth feel and appearance. Given that some kettlebells can cost as much as $200, it’s somewhat remarkable that this one is only $26. Amazon’s kettlebells range from ten to 60 pounds — and that heavyweight one is also on sale in case you’re already a KB pro. — Tanner Bowden


Fender Stratocaster
Save $125:If you’re looking to purchase your first Strat, or just want another workhorse guitar to add to the rotation, head over to Guitar Center today. Currently, you can save $125 on a Limited-Edition Player Stratocaster. This model has an alder body, 22-fret modern-C shaped maple neck and a 2-point fulcrum tremolo bridge. In a nod to David Gilmour’s guitar used on classic Pink Floyd albums, it has a black finish, black pickguard and white pickups. Other features are geared towards to frequent player: it has comfortable medium jumbo frets, a synthetic bone nut, vintage-style bent steel saddles and sealed die-cast tuners. Made in Mexico, this guitar normally costs $675 — act fast and you can pick it up for $550. — John Zientek


Filson Duffle Bag
Save 46%:You can’t go wrong with an American-made Filson bag. They have time-tested designs that are made to be used and abused. There’s nothing fancy about them, but that’s just the point. They feature rugged twill, bridle leather, brass hardware — a simple combination of materials that will stand up to years of service. Over at Nordstrom Rack, you can save $160 on its Small Duffle Bag. Sure, it’s still an investment. But it’s an investment that’s worth it. — John Zientek


Ralph Lauren’s Best Menswear
Save up to 50%:Ralph Lauren has earned his place in the fabric of American history and iconography by spending the last 50 years making clothes people love wearing. They’re the kinds of things that feel essential and luxurious at the same time: great jeans, leather jackets, boots that won’t quit and warm sweaters with just the right amount of personality. And right now, almost everything he makes is pretty deeply discounted, thanks to the brand’s biannual Friends and Family sale. If you use the code RLFAMILY, you can save 30 percent on new items from Polo, Purple Label and other awesome brands created by this uniquely American icon — the retailer also has discounts of up to 50 percent in its sale section.— John Zientek


Cozy Faux Fur-Lined Slippers
Save 18%:If a whiteout blizzard isn’t enough reason to stay inside, these slippers from Koolaburra by Ugg seal the deal. Yes, they’re Uggs. Yes, they’re slippers. Yes, they embrace your tired, cold feet in buttery suede and oh-so-very-warm faux fur. And, yes, they’re also on sale. A $55 price tag already places these sleepers into the upper echelon of home relaxing but the added discount thrusts them into another league. With five colors to choose from, you can have a pair for the whole family (or one for every business day you call in). — Gerald Ortiz


Sennheiser MOMENTUM 3 True Wireless Earbuds
Save 10%:Uncompromised sound performance, state-of-the-art technology and refined design all come together in Sennheiser’s MOMENTUM True Wireless premium earbuds. From the beautifully designed and perfectly fitting earbuds that bring you closer to the audio you love, to easy access voice assistant and touch operation that work intuitively with you.

Ready for next-level wireless sounds? Visit the Gear Patrol Store today.— Gear Patrol Store


Seiko Essentials Solar Chronograph
Save 32%: Seiko’s quartz watches like this sporty chronograph in the brand’s Essentials collection typically boast strong value and genuinely practical features. With a new, relatively classic design, this example is also quite handsome. With a carbon fiber-textured dial, tachymeter bezel, and racing-inspired textile strap, it’s a solid choice at its retail price of $275. Right now, however, it’s on sale at Macy’s for 32% off when you use the code “SAVE” at checkout, bringing it to just $186.
