Red Wing Heritage Sale
Save up to 66%: Red Wing Heritage boots are a solid example of quality American manufacturing. They feature quality materials like leather from Minnesota’s S.B. Foot Tanning Company, and they utilize time-tested constructions like Goodyear welting. Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save up to 66 percent on a range of Red Wing Heritage footwear. Nothing costs more than $200 and most boots don’t top $150. If you’re in need of a new pair of durable kicks, don’t miss this sale. — John Zientek
Barbour Duke Waxed-Cotton Jacket
Save 33%: A lightweight waterproof jacket is a necessity for the spring’s unpredictable weather. Barbour’s classic Duke jacket is a solid option, cut from waterproof waxed-cotton fabric. The style features four flap pockets, a snap-tab throat latch, adjustable cuff and a zip closure. It’s also 33 percent off at Nordstrom right now, so you can save before the seasons change. — John Zientek
Anker PowerPort Elite 2 Ports Wall Adapter
Save $20: The 24-watt wall adapter takes up one wall outlet and can charge two devices, but it’s more than that. Its top USB port is equipped with PowerIQ technology, which means it can fast-charge my iPhone X. While that’s happening, I can use the other port to charge my MacBook Pro. (It’s powerful enough charge my MacBook Pro while I’m not using it. If I’m using the MacBook Pro, it’ll basically just keep the laptop at the same battery level.)
The Anker PowerPort Elite 2 Ports Wall Adapter usually goes for $30, but today it’s one of Amazon’s Deals of the Day. Pick it up for just over $7. — Tucker Bowe
Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Earbuds
Save $50: The landscape for truly wireless earbuds has gotten seriously competitive, so much so that earbuds with the best sound and most prestige are becoming more accessible. Case in point: Bose. The audio giant has dropped the price of its first truly wireless earbuds, the Bose SoundSport Free, from $250 to $200, pulling them within touching distance of the $159 that Apple’s AirPods continue to go for. — Tucker Bowe
Timex x Todd Snyder Ironman Digital Watch
Save 30%: If you’re into throwback digital watches, don’t miss out on the Timex x Todd Snyder Ironman watch. This reissue was first developed in 1984 in partnership with the Ironman triathlon and features 200-meter water resistance, an Indiglo night light, a 100-hour chronograph, a 99-lap counter and a 24-hour countdown time. Though the contemporary model features an enlarged face and dial, it’s just as lightweight and durable as the original. Better yet, it’s 30% off right now. — John Zientek
The North Face End of Season Sale
Save 30%: The North Face is holding its end-of-season sale, which offers 30% off its full range of winter apparel. Among that crowd is the Ventrix, an award-winning synthetic insulation jacket. — Tanner Bowden
Urban Outfitters Home Goods
Save an Additional 40%: Long a home to the quirky and eccentric, Urban Outfitters’s selection of home goods is surprisingly centered. And also cheap, especially on days like today where you can take an additional 40 percent off sale items.
We’re talking a $480 modernist coffee table for $240, a $70 industrial wall shelf for $24 and a $675 rustic mango wood platform bed for all of $250. Now go shop for yourself.
The discount is applied automatically at checkout. — Will Price
Save an Additional 50%: The time to stock up on wardrobe basics has arrived. Beginning today and running through the weekend, Bonobos is offering 50% off all current sale items using code FIFTY at checkout. Bonobos is an NYC-based maker of good quality clothing essentials, and with some items discounted up to 80% off (check out the Shearling Collar Bomber), these are seriously high-value cops. — Will Price
Fisher Space Pen Co. AG7 Original
Save 20%: Fisher’s AG7 Original pen is special for a couple reasons. It’s made in the USA, functions in temperatures from -30 to 250 degrees Fahrenheit and also performs at any angle, even upside down. But you’d probably be most impressed by the fact that it’s the only pen to have ever made it to the moon; it was selected by NASA to accompany the early Apollo astronauts to outer space and has been used on every manned space flight since. And, right now, it’s 20 percent off at Kaufmann Mercantile with the code INBLOOM. — Jack Seemer
Blanc Creatives Carbon Steel Skillet
Save 20%: If you’ve been reading Gear Patrol lately you’d know we’re feeling carbon steel cookware, and the folks at Blanc Creatives represent the best a pan can get. The Charlottesville forge uses pressed-out, thick-gauge steel then hammers each by hand into its final shape. They look almost as good as they cook.
Save 20 percent on a Blanc piece (or this very pretty knife roll) now during Kaufmann Mercantile’s pre-spring sale with code INBLOOM. — Will Price
Vault by Vans OG Old Skool LX Sneakers
Save $32: Vault by Vans gives the brand’s iconic shoes a premium upgrade. For example, this low-top Old Skool features a tasteful green-on-green nubuck upper along with the iconic rubber waffle outsole. And right now, you can save $32 on this versatile style at Need Supply Co. — that’s essentially the same price as the non-luxe version. — John Zientek
A.P.C. Leonard Chelsea Boot
Save $170: Understated leather Chelsea boots look good with just about anything in your closet. You can pair them with jeans, chinos or slacks; you can wear them on a lazy weekend or at the office. French brand A.P.C. makes a great option called the Leonard Chelsea boot that features YKK zippers instead of the normal elastic side-panels. With a suede upper and quality Portuguese construction, these are a perfect fit for any wardrobe — not to mention, they’re $170 off. — John Zientek
Save between 46% and 56%: Today, Nordstrom Rack is offering savings between 46 percent and 56 percent on quality Frye footwear. The substantial sale covers a wide range of styles including oxfords, chukkas, lace-up boots and more.

Now in Patagonia’s Sale Section, the Last Jacket I’ll Ever Have to Buy
Save up to 50%: I’ve taken mine backpacking through Chilean Patagonia and continue to wear it daily in New York City. — Tanner Bowden
Lord and Taylor Sale
Save 40%: We all have that one shirt we always wear to the gym — it fits just right, is comfortable, and probably has been washed about 5,000 times. It might be time for an upgrade. Today, Lord and Taylor is offering 40% off all apparel including deals on activewear. Here are a few picks to get you started before your next workout. — Meg Lappe
Faherty Surplus Sale
Save up to 80%: Now’s a great time to stock up on warm weather wardrobe essentials. The New York brand Faherty is offering up to 80 percent on a range of staples fit for sunnier days. Know for designing its own fabrics and investing in quality construction, Faherty’s timeless pieces are built to last. So if you’re wanting to pick up some new clothing before the seasons change, don’t miss this sale — prices start at just $30. — John Zientek
Mountain Standard Down Jackets and Gloves
Save 50%: Don’t be fooled by a mid-February heat wave; winter is fickle, and it will return with a cold disregard for whatever clothing you were planning on wearing until Spring takes over. Luckily Colorado-based outdoor brand Mountain Standard is selling off the last of its 2018 insulation collection — that includes jackets, shirt jackets and gloves — for 50 percent off. Each piece is stuffed with premium 700-fill goose down or Primaloft Gold to provide lightweight warmth in a variety of stylish profiles. — Tanner Bowden
Breville Quick Touch Microwave
Save $40: There’s no arguing that the microwave is a necessity in the modern kitchen, and, even at $250, Breville’s Quick Touch model is one of the best value-gets out there. It sports a 12-inch glass reheat table, ten variable power levels, a one-year replacement warranty and a particularly useful “A Bit More” button, which adds exactly “a bit” of cook time. Best part? It’s $40 off right now. — Will Price
Save $900: The Barcelona Chair isn’t just icon of modern furniture design, but modern design writ large — and we won’t say $900 off makes it a no-brainer pick-up, but it definitely doesn’t hurt.
Made to the same specifications today as it was in its heyday, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s 1929 piece was originally made to seat the king and queen of Spain at an event in Barcelona. The legs and frame are hand-buffed chrome, and the seat and cushion itself is a combination of Spinneyback Volo cowhide and cowhide belting straps.
The Barcelona Chair, its accompanying stool, couch and more than 200 other items are part of the DWR Dining and Knoll sale going on right now. — Will Price
Save $19: Apple still doesn’t sell AirPods in the “certified refurbished” part of its site, but Best Buy does. You can get a set of refurbished AirPods on Best Buy for $140 — that’s $19 off their original MSRP. It’s not a lot, but to the best of my knowledge, it’s the only place you can get any type of deal on Apple AirPods. — Tucker Bowe
Hoka One One Vanquish 3
Save $85: No matter how you choose to say Hoka One One (is it one-one or OH-ne, Oh-ne?) the maximalist shoes are loved for all things long distance related. You’re sure to spot a pair (or five) on triathlon, marathons and ultras courses — the cushioning is unparalleled. To sweeten the deal, when you use code JRSOLEV at checkout, you can pick up a pair of the Vanquish 3s for just $85 down from $170. — Meg Lappe
Seiko Prospex SRPB55 Samurai
Save 25%: Many watch enthusiasts cut their teeth on mechanical Seiko dive watches because they are some of the best values in the watch industry. Take, for example, this Prospex SRPB55 “Samurai.” It’s has a full 200-meter depth rating (meeting ISO’s standard for divers), an in-house automatic movement, a waffle-textured dial and a case with a black ion finish. Yet you can get all of this for just $525 — except right now on Amazon, the watch is selling at a 25 percent discount, meaning you can get this hard-hitting diver for only $393. — Andrew Connor
Asics Semi-Annual Sale
Save up to 50%: Asics’ semi-annual sale is in full swing with up to 50% off on all sneakers, apparel and gear. The best part is that you can buy almost all of the sneakers for less than $100. And if there’s one thing Asics shines at, it’s creating cushioned, supportive and durable sneakers. With a sale like this, it’s worth thinking about stocking up on your favorite model, since with each release comes a slight tweak in design that can change everything about the feel. — Meg Lappe
Canon DSLR Cameras
Save up to $800: Canon has long set the bar for full-frame DSLR cameras. They’re used by some of our favorite adventure photographers, as well as amateurs, too, and we recommend them for anybody in the market for great DSLR at a relatively low price. Neither of Canon’s 6D and 5D Mark III DSLRs are the latest and greatest (both are several years old), but they’re still fantastic cameras and now they’re at the lowest prices we’ve ever seen. You can pick up the 6D (body only) for $999 on Adorama, which is $700 off its normal $1,700 MSRP. Or you can buy the 5D Mark III (body only) on B&H Photo for $1,999, which is $800 off its normal $2,799 MSRP.
Both of the above are good deals and we’re not sure how long they’ll last. Also, since both deals are “body only,” we’ve found a great deal on Amazon for an advanced two-lens kit (with 50mm f/1.4 and 17-40mm f/4L lens) — save $300 here. — Tucker Bowe
Mystery Ranch Bags
Save up to $55: Mystery Ranch’s largest single client is the U.S. military. That should be all the convincing you need to pick up a bag from the makers of what many argue to be the most rugged gear available — that, and the fact that it’s on sale now.
A collection of the Montana-based company’s bags are currently discounted on Huckberry. The best deal pertains to the Mission Wheelie, available in two sizes: 40 and 80 liters. The body is built with 1000D Cordura — an uber-tough, rigorously-tested fabric — hardened by a thermo-polyurethane coating. — Will Price
Cuisinart 8-Cup Food Processor
Save Almost 70%: If you’re a home cook and you’re without a food processor, you’re doing something wrong. Unless you’re cool with milkshakes that taste like hummus or fruit smoothies with a tinge of leftover pesto, we recommend hopping on this mega deal for Cuisinart’s 8-cup food processor. It features reversible blade spinning, 350 watts of power and removable, easy-to-clean pieces. Oh, and it’s $120 off. — Will Price
GoPro HERO5 Session Camera
Save $50 (25%): GoPro might have pulled out of the drone race — its Karma drone was discontinued earlier in 2018, although the company will continue selling them until they’re sold out (it has also pledged to continue support for drones in the future) — but its action cameras are still the best that money can buy. The HERO6 Black is GoPro’s latest and greatest, but that also means that you can find some killer deals on older-gen cameras. The compact HERO5 Session, for example, which can shoot 4K video at 30 frames per second and take 10MP still photos, normally goes for $200 — you can get one for today. It’s a certified refurbished model, mind you, but GoPro’s traditional one-year warranty still applies. This eBay’s spotlight deal of the day, so don’t expect it to last long. — Tucker Bowe
Allen Edmonds Higgins Mill Boot
Save $100: Right now, Allen Edmonds is offering $100 off all styles in its Dainite Collection, including the ruggedly refined Higgins Mill Boot, which is almost 25 perfect off. — Jack Seemer
