Enter for A Chance to Win A Custom-Made Surfboard + Loads of Spring Gear
Josh Oldenburg creates beautiful custom-made surfboards in San Diego. From start to finish, he hand-shaves the boards to perfection, focusing on functionality above everything else.

With premium materials and stunning designs, it’s no wonder the two brands work well together. SLVDR is offering you the chance to win one of Oldenburg’s custom single-fin 6’2″ surfboards. One lucky winner will receive SLVDR package with its latest spring 2018 products (worth $500) and a made-in-California wet-sanded gloss surfboard.

Save $20: Anker is best known for making high-quality-yet-really-affordable accessories for the gadgets in your life. The company, however, has also gotten into audio products this year. Its first pair of truly wireless earphones, the Zolo Liberty, just became available; they are one of the most budget-friendly truly wireless earphones you can buy, costing $50 less than what the AirPods and Google Pixel Buds (both go for $159). The earbuds will work with the smart assistant that’s on your smartphone, and a single charge will give each earbud roughly 3.5 hours of playtime. Better still, if you order on Amazon today, you can get them for just $80 — that’s $20 off. To get the discount, just use the code ZOLOADS1 at checkout. — Tucker Bowe

Save 62%: There will be no more worrying if you have the correct-sized drill bit. The Crescent 170-Piece Mechanic Tool Set normally retails north of $200 — today, it’s $78. That comes out to about $0.46 per tool. The perfect gift for the DIY-inclined or the lethargic son in need of a passive-aggressive nudge from his dad, the set includes 14 wrenches, six screwdrivers, countless drillbits, even more countless drive tools.

Seiko SAPA29
Save 60%: While Seiko divers and field watches make up some of our favorite mechanical watches on the affordable end of the spectrum, the brand is pretty adept at making a dress watch at a reasonable price, too. The Seiko SRPA29 features a shimmering navy blue dial with guilloche finishing (generally a staple on more expensive watches), and it rocks an in-house 4R35 automatic movement inside. With an MSRP of $375 it’s already a reasonably priced timepiece, but right now Macy’s is selling it for just $150 — a massive 60 percent discount. — Andrew Connor

Bills Khakis M3 Original Twill
Save $108: In the mid ’80s, Bill Thomas bought his first pair of khaki pants at an army surplus store. Taken by the quality, he quit his day job (advertising), borrowed money from his mother and started Bills Khakis in his hometown of Reading, Pennsylvania, dedicated to the art of the twill khaki. While the price is reflective of their longevity — pairs start at $155 — the brand is offering the straight fit M3 cut in navy for just $47. — Jack Seemer

Buy Now: $155 $47


Icon 1000 Forestall Jacket
Save 25%:When it comes to waxed canvas motorcycle jackets, most take on a vintage-style that’s not for everyone. The Icon 1000 Forestall Jacket gives you the same timeless quality, performance and durability of a waxed canvas construction with a modern look. Its design was inspired by the classic officer’s trench yet won’t your style back a few decades. — Bryan Campbell
