Clif Builders Protein Bar
Save $15: In 2019, if you can find a quality protein bar for less than two dollars, more power to you. But what if we said you could score a 12-pack for less than one dollar a bar? You’d probably think we’d lost our minds, but it’s true. Right now Amazon is peddling Clif Builders Protein Bars in the best flavor, Crunchy Peanut Butter, for $11 per 12-pack, a full $15 off the regular price of $26. These bars are loaded with 20 grams of complete plant protein. They are also non-GMO, gluten-free and pretty damn delicious. Amazon is offering some nice deals on other flavors as well, but this 56 percent discount leads the pack. — Steve Mazzucchi

Normally up to $570, these shades are now just $100 while supplies last. — John Zientek
Orox Leather Co.
Last Day to get 20% off:Orox Leather Company arrived on the scene in 2012 in the heart of Portland, Oregon. For this family business, craftsmanship is a birthright that crossed four continents and four generations. Today, the Orox founder José Martinez and his three sons Martin, Kevin and Levi blend designs and techniques from Japan, Mexico and America. Every Orox Leather Co. product comes backed with a limited lifetime warranty that covers all defects in materials and craftsmanship for the life of the product. And, while leather will naturally age and change over time and with use, each product is designed from the beginning to fashionably patina with wear and use without compromising the look and feel of the product. Get 20% off the entire collection, free monogramming on select models and free shipping. Promotion ends tonight at midnight. — Gear Patrol Store
Alpha Industries L-2B Jacket
Save 50%:When you think of the iconic military bomber jacket, you’re no doubt picturing one from Alpha Industries. The brand has been outfitting the world in iconic military garms for 60 years, even supplying the U.S. military early on. Now you can nab one of their classic L-2B flight jackets on the cheap. A close sibling to the MA-1 bomber jacket, the L-2B was issued to the USAF in the ’50s and features snap handwarmer pockets, rib-knit wool details and utility pockets at the sleeve. Best of all, it’s entirely reversible. So really, you’re getting two jackets on sale. — Gerald Ortiz
Audioengine HDP6 Bookshelf Speakers
Save $150: Audioengine’s HDP6 are wonderful passive bookshelf speakers and right now they’re on sale. The Drop is selling them for $250, which is $150 less than what Audioengine is selling them for, as well as pretty much every third-party seller. The Drop’s deal applies to all three finishes: black, walnut and cherry. The HDP6 are essentially passive versions of Audioengine’s HD6 ($699) active speakers. (The “P” in the name stands for passive.) Instead of plugging each speaker into the wall and streaming music directly to them, like you’re able to with the HD6, Audioengine’s HDP6 speakers are designed to connect directly to your home’s current receiver or amplifier. Each speaker has a 5.5-inch aramid fiber woofer and a 1-inch silk dome tweeter, which according to many reviews, helps them sound much bigger than they are. — Tucker Bowe
Orient Mako II Dive Watch
Save $206: Available with a black dial with black bezel, blue dial with blue bezel or blue dial with a blue bezel in which the first 15 minutes are demarcated in red, this is a ton of value in a $325 watch, but right now you cab nab the Mako II on Drop for the almost laughably low price of $119. — Oren Hartov
