Hims Hair Loss Prevention Kit
No one wants the flu, so we all (hopefully) get flu shots. Similarly, no one wants to lose their precious, precious hair — yet, in this case, we do nothing until the process has already begun, and the bastard that is hair loss has its talons in you.
Hims, a new men’s wellness company, wants to change that — and they want you to talk about it. Openly. As in not just in hushed tones with your wife or girlfriend.
The idea behind Hims is simple: every month you get what amounts to a toolbelt of hair loss prevention, you use said toolbelt as suggested and your hair remains in its wonderful, voluminous, natural state. The monthly kit is made up of four distinct pieces: a supply of pills that prevent testosterone from breaking down into a dangerous-to-hair hormone called DHT, Minoxidil drops meant to encourage older hair to fall out to be replaced by healthier hair, shampoo that prevents the spread of the aforementioned DHT on your scalp and a multivitamin supplement which includes Bioton and other ingredients known to bolster hair, nails and overall skin health.
The best part? Gear Patrol readers get their first month of hair-saving stock for just $5 by just visiting the exclusive link below.

Today’s Best Deals
Blundstone Crazy Horse Boot
Save 54%: Blundstone makes a no-nonsense boot ideal for everyday wear. Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save $100 on the brand’s iconic style in a versatile tan colorway. This go-anywhere boot features a leather upper, dual side goring and a grip sole. For the price of a sneaker, it’s hard to resist. — John Zientek
Definitive Technology W Studio Soundbar
Save 77%: The W Studio soundbar by Definitive Technology was released in 2014 and, at the time, was praised by reviewers. The running caveat, however, was that it was expensive, but now you can actually get a really good deal on it. If you go to eBay right, you can buy a refurbished model of the W Studio soundbar, which originally cost $1,800, for just $399. If you don’t feel comfortable with a manufacturer refurbished model (and eBay’s “30-days money back” return policy), the W Studio soundbar is on sale on Amazon for $899. — Tucker Bowe
NordicTrack C 990 Treadmill
Save $300: No home gym is complete without a treadmill. While there are numerous models and designs out there, NordicTrack is known for consistently producing high-quality ones. The 7-inch touchscreen shows all the stats you expect: speed, time, distance, calories, heart rate, incline and decline, plus the run itself is smooth thanks to the adjustable cushioning (either road or track, you pick). — Meg Lappe
Dyson Ball Complete Upright Vacuum (Refurbed)
Save 40%: Now is one of your better shots at picking up Dyson’s Ball Complete Upright vacuum while their sole barrier to entry — cost — is at its near lowest. The floor-cleaning powerhouse is available now for $160, or 40%, off the sticker price. This package in particular also comes with a host of extra Dyson cleaning tools and attachments. The catch, if it is one, is these Dysons are manufacturer refurbished, meaning they were brought back, cleaned up, fixed and declared ready to re-sell by a brand known for its meticulousness. I’m betting they’ll work just fine. — Will Price
Handmade Leather Goods
Save 30%: The team of leather artisans at Popov Leather, a relatively new Canadian company, are hand-making seriously affordable leather goods with some seriously old-school leather. The leather, which comes from either Horween or Wickett & Craig, is cut and crafted into a variety of goods — belts, watch straps, wallets, cardholders and more. Right now, during Popov’s 5-year anniversary sale, you can get 30% off these already reasonably-priced leather goods with code 5YEAR at checkout. I’m grabbing the Cherry Leather Card Holder — Will Price
Danner Jag Boot
Save 60%: There’s a boot sale going on right now at Danner and you should know about it. Among all the options (sizes running out quickly), the newly remodeled Jag Boot has our eye.
The Jag is an ’80s model reimagined for the 21st century. It rocks a cushy EVA midsole and is lighter and slimmer cut — aiming at a fine point between outdoor wear and not looking ridiculous in-town either. The best part? The Jag, which typically retails for $160, is nearly $100 off right now.
Get Danner’s Jag boot for 60% off, or save big on a how of other Danner boots. — Will Price
Filson Tool Roll
Save 20%: Tool rolls are meant to travel, to be taken into the field as a packable, foldable toolbox. That means it has to be tough enough to withstand the elements and the test of time. A good place to start is this tool roll by Filson. Not only is it made from twill but it’s also 20% off. — Bryan Campbell
