Levi’s Hooded Canvas Jacket
Save 83%: A durable canvas jacket is a surprisingly versatile piece of casual outerwear. In a sense, it’s like a more durable hoodie and can be your go-to layer through the late winter and spring. Levi’s makes a great version featuring a zip closure, rib-knit cuffs and two front pockets. Now at Nordstrom Rack, it’s a ridiculous 83% off, meaning it’ll cost you just over $30. — John Zientek
Velva Sheen Pocket Tee
Save 50%: Established in 1932, Velva Sheen originally produced tees, sweatshirts and other basics for schools, camps and the military. The company is now under Japanese ownership and the manufacturing has moved from Cincinnati to Los Angeles, but the high level of quality remains. The company’s pocket tee is cut from sturdy jersey fabric made from domestically-grown cotton and features a ribbed crew neck. The navy colorway is now 50% off at East Dane and is available in a range of sizes — this is a good opportunity to upgrade your basics. — John Zientek
Herschel Supply Co. Bags
Save 40%: Herschel Supply Co. knows how to make a bright, yet understated backpack that works as a commuter bag as well as a style piece. The color-blocked designs can be spotted all over the city, but the bags can also shine as an overnighter or a day hiker. The packs are all available for up to 40% off in a variety of sizes and shapes. It’s not just backpacks that they know how to make — the mid totes function just as well carrying your laptop as they do carrying all your gym clothes. Here are just a sampling of all the bags on sale. — Meg Lappe
Mophie Powerstation (6,000 mAh)
Save $25: This Mophie Powerstation is a dependable portable power bank, even if it isn’t able to fast-charge your iPhone. It has a 6,000mAh battery capacity and comes with two USB ports, meaning it can keep two smartphones charged all day. Normally, Mophie sells it for $50, but you can find it for half that on Amazon today. — Tucker Bowe
New Balance Running Gear
Save 47%: As spring looms ever closer (we’re down to just five more weeks, right?) the need for new running gear surges. Find your fast with technical pieces from New Balance. Save 70% off everything from tees to singlets to sweats to shorts. With over 150 items to choose from, you can grab gear from a recent race you ran (Boston or New York anyone?), or prep for an upcoming one. Here are a few of our top picks. — Meg Lappe
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones
Save 33%: Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay H9 noise-canceling headphones were among the best that I tested last year. They are comfortable enough to wear all day, and the over-ear design, paired with active noise canceling, blocks out a good slug of the ambient noise on long-haul flights. I used them with my Cambridge Audio DacMagic XS USB Dac and without, and actually preferred them without — a rare occurrence and a testament to the H9’s quality. Right now on Amazon, you can score the H9s for 33% off in black — the lowest price they’ve ever been. — AJ Powell
