Welcome to our new weekly dose of gear intel. Here at Gear Patrol, we are constantly sifting through an endless stream of product drops, big-time sales and cultural events to only bring you the best of what we find. But sometimes there are extra special things that truly demand your attention. So at the beginning of each week, we’ll let you know about the best of these that should be on your radar.

REI Labor Day Sale
Holidays and REI sales typically go hand-in-hand. And Labor Day is no different. Until September 2 you can score up to 40 percent off on select items as well as an extra 20 percent off one REI Outlet item with the code LABORDAY19.
Dates: Until September 2
Location: REI website
Brooklinen Labor Day Sale
New season, new sheets. Brooklinen’s high-quality linens don’t go on sale often so it’s probably best to make the most of the brand’s Labor Day sale that runs from August 29 to September 3. You’ll get 10 percent off all orders under $200 and 15 percent off all orders over $200.
Dates: August 29 – September 3
Location: Brooklinen website
Bear Mattress Labor Day Sale
Heck, why stop at just new sheets? Maybe you need a new mattress, too. Bear Mattress is offering up 20 percent off all purchases using the discount code 20LD. Plus all mattress purchases include two free Cloud Pillows.
Dates: Until September 3
Location: Bear Mattress website
The North Face Labor Day Sale
Another outdoor brand, another Labor Day sale. The North Face is offering up savings of 25 percent off select styles from August 22 until September 2.
Dates: August 22 – September 2
Location: The North Face website
The U.S. Open of Tennis
Last year’s U.S. Open of Tennis was action-packed with then-20-year-old Naomi Osaka defeating Serena Williams in the final to become the first Japanese player to win a Grand Slam singles tournament. The now-21-year-old is currently ranked no. 1 in the world and is looking to defend her title. And there’s also that guy Novak Djokovic who will be looking to repeat, though he’ll have to contend with Daniil Medvedev, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
Dates: August 26 – September 8
Location: Flushing, NY
