Mystery Ranch Urban Assault Backpack
Save 22%: Mystery Ranch has deep roots in the outdoor industry — in 1985 its founder, Dana Gleason, invented a revolutionary internal frame design called ArcFlex that permanently changed how pack makers think about load bearing. But Gleason and co-founder Renee Sippel-Baker hit their stride when Navy SEALs approached them in search of custom packs. Now they craft bags for the military, backcountry firefighters and US Forest Service, as well as the everyday outdoorsman.

The Urban Assault pack (currently 22 percent off at Huckberry in select colorways) utilizes the same technical design features that make Mystery Ranch bags suitable for the most rigorous users but includes features that make it ideal for the urban inhabitant. It’s made with 500-denier Cordura nylon and has a unique three-zipper opening system, two internal accessory pockets, a laptop sleeve and a quick-access lid pouch. It also employs a fixed-harness frame system, which allows the commuter-friendly pack to perform like a high-end expedition backpack. — Tanner Bowden

Dyson AM10 Humidifier
Save 50%: Most humidifiers are one-season splurges that sit in storage most of the year. Dyson’s AM10 humidifier, however, doubles as a fan for four-season use. Though it normally costs $500 online, you can score a refurbished model on eBay for just $250 (50% off). — Jack Seemer

Lodge Cast Iron Skillet
Save 46%: Thanks to their unmatched heat retention and durability, cast iron skillets are essentials for the kitchen, perfectly suited for cooking meals that require high heat — think seared steaks and cornbread with a perfectly crispy outside. While boutique cast iron cookware can be pricey, Lodge is a stalwart brand that offers quality skillets at reasonable prices. Currently, the brand’s standard 10.25-inch pan is being sold at a 46 percent discount on Amazon. It’s made in the U.S. and comes pre-seasoned, so you can start cooking with it right out of the box. Other Lodge pieces — like its 9-inch skillet and single-burner griddle — have also been marked down. — Andrew Connor
