Dyson V10 Cordless Vacuum
Save $50+Dyson’s mighty V10 cordless vacuum released just a few months ago. It’s impressive enough for the brand to shut down R&D on corded vacuums for good upon its launch. To date, it’s the most powerful cordless vacuum ever made.

These things combined make today’s discount on all three types of V10 all the more rare. The Absolute, Animal and Motorhead models are 14, 17 and 10 percent off, respectively. The only difference between each is the number of extra, task-specific vacuum heads that comes with your order (a breakdown of which heads come with which can be found here). This is the first time the entire line has been on sale. — Will Price

CamelBak Arete 18 on Sale
Save $17 Staying hydrated on a summer hike or run is imperative to your performance. And the sun can take more out of you than you think.

Now Is the Best Time to Get a Discounted Down Jacket
Save More Than 50%: The end of August is no time for speculations on the changing of the seasons. It’s easy to declare summer’s end, but given recent trends, it may not be true — chances are the warm weather will continue for another month before fall begins to show its face. Cold weather will come though, and despite reluctance to admit to that, it can’t hurt to think ahead.

That’s especially true now, given Backcountry’s current sale on insulating jackets. The outdoor retailer has been running deep discounts on all types of gear and apparel through August, but for this weekend only it’s offering an additional 20 percent off insulation in particular. Given that the down jacket — or synthetic down jacket — is the keystone of lightweight winter warmth, (and that they’re usually pretty pricey), it’s a smart time to consider the winds and flurries yet to come. The extra discount brings quality pieces like Patagonia’s Nano-Air down from $299 to $144, or Black Diamond’s First Light from $229 to $119. — Tanner Bowden

Bose QC30 Noise-Canceling Earphones
Save $50: Whether you prefer in-ear or over-ear noise-canceling headphones, Bose arguably makes the best models of both. Its QC35 IIs are the most comfortable over-ear models that I’ve ever tried. And it’s QC30s are definitely the best in-ear ANC headphones you can buy. Now, Amazon is selling both Bose headphones at $50 off. The QC35 IIs cost $299, down from their normal $349. And the QC30s cost $249, down from their normal $299.
