Thule Revolve Hardside Luggage Collection
No stranger to the world of gear protection, Thule’s next venture will parlay 75 years of masterful engineering cues from its extensive and successful roof-carrier past into a brand-new, innovative collection of business-class luggage. The Revolve Collection is “focused on durability and ease of use” and features four sizes of rolling cases in three colorways, all of which utilize the company’s new eight-wheel system for smooth and efficient travel.
The new series of luggage is European-made of 100 percent virgin polycarbonate materials in order to maximize its lightweight and durable properties. A TSA-approved lock and puncture-proof zippers protect your belongings from the outside while a full felt liner keeps things cozy and unmarred inside, where packing space is maximized thanks to cleverly recessed wheels. The Revolve Collection promises to be a hit when it officially launches in early 2019.

Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender
Save $50: Vitamix’s Explorian Blender renders your blender-based quibbles obsolete. It is self-cleaning (soap, water, turn on), it doesn’t break off into a dozen pieces, it’s dishwasher-safe, there is literally nothing it can’t pulverize and now it’s $50 more affordable. The Explorian line is Vitamix’s newest, and most affordable, offering. The Explorian line packs the power and variable blend speeds one would expect from Vitamix, and drops the size of the blend unit as well as some programmable features.
Treat yourself to a blender that rocks aircraft-grade steel blades and a 10-year manufacturer warranty. You and your smoothies deserve it. — Will Price

Stanley Master Series Thermoses and Flasks
Save 20%: You already know that the thermoses and mugs produced by Stanley are high quality, but did you know that Stanley — as in William Stanley Jr. — invented the vacuum bottle in 1913? (He also patented an early version of the electric transformer and used it to light up Main Street in a small Massachusetts town.) That gives Stanley over 100 years of bottle-making experience, and it means there’s a good chance that a Stanley product has been passed down through some of the branches of your family tree — because Stanley bottles are super durable. I’ve had my 16-ounce Vacuum Mug for half a decade now, and the thing barely has a scratch on it, despite my less-than-coddling treatment of it.
Stanley recently doubled-down on that heritage of strength in introducing its Master Series. This new collection of mugs uses stainless steel that’s at least 50-percent thicker than similar vacuum mugs and Stanley’s Quadvac insulation, which keeps drinks warmth for up to 40 hours. They’re Stanley’s most resilient, heat-retaining mugs yet. Right now at Huckberry, you can save 20 percent on Master Series thermoses, mugs and flasks as well as some solid pieces from past collections. — Tanner Bowden
Adidas Stan Smith’s
Save 30%: No disrespect meant to Stan, but it’s not often an athlete’s shoe eclipses the athlete in popularity, but the adidas Stan Smith has in all likelihood done just that. This weatherproof version of the classic monochrome sneaker (originally meant to play tennis in) sports a rubber cupsole, leather upper and a gusset tongue to keep what elements it can away from your feet. Pick up the 3-stripe classics for 30% off retail from adidas now. — Will Price
Swims Classic Overshoe
Save $45: A good pair of galoshes protect your investment-grade shoes from rain and snow, so you don’t need to worry about them succumbing to the elements or bringing a pair of rain boots with you for your commute. These galoshes from SWIMS are made from a tear-resistant rubber and feature a soft insulating lining that buff your shoes as you walk. While a pair normally retails for $95, Allen Edmonds is selling them at a steep discount, so you can pick them up for just $50. Just in time for soggy, transitional weather. — Andrew Connor
