Act fast, because with deals this good, these boots won’t be around long. — John Zientek
Samsung Gear S3
Save $115: Samsung still doesn’t make a better, bigger and more rugged smartwatch than the Gear S3. Released in 2016, the Gear S3 has a wonderful rotating bezel, an IP68 waterproof rating, and a built-in heart-rate monitor and GPS tracker. Plus, with built-in LTE, you can completely ditch your phone and still answer calls and texts.

And now you can get it get a great deal on it.
Samsung and Best Buy currently sell new Gear S3 for $300, but Best Buy is also offering refurbished models (Geek Squad certified) for just $185. These refurbished models are only available in black and come with a 90-day return policy. If you just but a Galaxy S9 or Note8 and want a large smartwatch you can take outdoors, here’s your chance to save $115 on the Gear S3.

You might not get much wear out of it this season, but you’ll be prepared for whatever next year has in store. — John Zientek
LG C7P OLED TV
Save $300: The C7P is LG’s flagship OLED TV. It has the same stunning 4K picture quality as the brand’s high-end W7 OLED, just without the wallpaper-thin design and extremely high price tag. We also selected it as one of the best OLED TVs in 2017. It’s an excellent TV to consider if you’re looking to make the jump to OLED, and eBay is currently offering a 55-inch C7P for $1,399 — that’s $300 less than what it’s going for on Best Buy. If you’re looking for a bigger TV, you can buy the 65-inch C7P on eBay for $2,099, which is also significantly less than what it’s going for on Best Buy ($2,600) and Amazon ($2,597).
The $280 U.S. Special Forces-Grade Alpha Lite Pullover Is 60% Off
Save $167: Made of weather-resistant Japanese ripstop nylon and assembled in North America, Coldsmoke’s Alpha Lite pullover is filled with insulation “originally developed for U.S. Special Forces.” It’s a slimmer-fitting (sizing up is recommended) shirt that’ll work as a mid- or outer layer. I’ve been eyeing this guy for awhile, and now that it’s dipped well below half its original price, it may be time to act. I’m especially partial to the colorway — the dark navy, black and cream combo is unique enough to catch my eye every time. — Nick Caruso
Save 25%: When you’re camping out in the middle of nowhere, there’s no reason you can’t have a good meal to make you feel right at home. To make it easier on yourself, and your camping buddies, building an outdoor kitchen with MSR cookware is a good place to start. Today, at Backcountry, you can built a complete campfire kitchen, all at 25% off.— Bryan Campbell

Filson Quilted Mile Marker Jacket
Save 20%: Seattle-based Filson has set the bar for no-B.S. outdoor garments for over 120 years. Its outerwear pairs functional designs with durable materials made to stand up to years of constant use. As the weather transitions and temperatures are too warm for the brand’s Double Mackinaw Cruiser, consider wearing the Quilted Mile Marker jacket. The jacket is lightweight, water-repellent and abrasion-resistant, and features three front pockets, a nylon lining and a moleskin-lined collar. It’s made in the USA, and now for a limited time, it’s 20 percent off. — John Zientek
Columbia River Knife and Tool 5500 K.I.S.S.
Save 20%: There’s not much more you can do to a folder to make it more simple. The basic architecture is a handle, blade and clip — what more is there to do? Well, if Columbia River Knife and Tool went any further with the K.I.S.S., they wouldn’t have a knife at all. The blade folds down, sealing the cutting edge against the one piece handle. Like most other folding blades, a thumb stud is used for a one-handed open action and stopping the blade is an integrated frame lock. At this point, the clip almost feels like an excess. Keeping with the theme of ‘less is more,’ you can now get the CRKT K.I.S.S. at 20% off. — Bryan Campbell
Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket
Save $55: Waxed canvas predates GORE-TEX as one of the original waterproof materials. The discovery of the material’s rough weather potential came when sailors noticed that wet sails caught wind better than dry sails, and decided to preemptively apply oil to their canvas to make it less permeable. Soon they began cutting sheets from these oiled sails and sewed them into jackets, which, while not perfect, provided an ideal layer against rain and ocean spray.
Now, manufacturers create waxed canvas garments through a process that impregnates cotton with paraffin wax, which yields better water resistance and less color fading. The waxed canvas jacket, once standard attire for sailors, soldiers and outdoorsmen, has mostly been replaced with lighter synthetic materials, but it still maintains its place as a workwear staple and weatherproof style piece.
Flint and Tinder’s Waxed Trucker Jacket stays true to the original style of waxed canvas jackets. It’s made with Martexin seven-ounce sailcloth that’s cut to waist length, in keeping with traditional trucker jacket style. It also contains hand pockets, a chest pocket and metal buttons. The Waxed Trucker goes beyond the typical canvas design with a flannel-lined interior, which makes it the perfect outer layer for the variable weather that accompanies the onset of Spring. Right now, it’s also 25 percent off, which is its lowest price yet. — Tanner Bowden
Staub Braise and Grill Pan
Save 50%: If you’re not familiar with Staub perhaps the quickest indicator of their quality is they are Le Creuset’s largest direct competitor in the world of premium enameled cast-iron. Simpler clean-up and a wider array of cooking options, enameled cast-iron is ideal if you’re looking for cookware that will last and won’t demand extra attention (you don’t need to season enameled cast-iron). The grill pan itself acts as a fitted lid in this instance, and is easily removed when necessary. Prized for heavy-duty durability, Staub’s cookware is cast and twice enameled-coated, and is more resistant to chips and cracking because of it. The Braise and Grill typically retails for a whopping $400 — it’s 50 percent off on Sierra Trading Post right now. — Will Price
Alpinestars Quick Seal Out Two-Piece Rain Suit
Save 20%:Having a rain suit that fits over your riding gear will be a crucial asset in the coming months. Luckily, the Alpinestars Quick Seal Out Two-Piece Rain Suit is on sale just in time. We just got hammered with another nor’easter, but if forecasts are to be believed, it looks like real spring weather is just a week or two away. What that means, though, is you can expect the snow to turn to slush and as soon as that’s gone, sporadic rain showers will be the next annoyance. — Bryan Campbell
Save 15%: A brand based in Chicago, Defy, makes some of the toughest bags available, but you might not know it from first glance. The all-black bags have a minimalist-look, yet stand up to serious endeavors. Each is hand-made with the same material that the troops use today — waterproof 22 oz. M35 military truck tarpaulin. Today, the Bucktown Backpack, Ultimate Overnighter, and R&R Weekender are all 15% off. — Meg Lappe
Myles Apparel Elements Sweatpants
Save 25%: Huckberry’s house brand Myles Apparel has given the sweatpant a much-needed refresh. The structured silhouette is cut from soft, water-resistant French terry and features a small percentage of stretch for comfort. The design includes a zippered back pocket, deep hand pockets and a drawstring waistband. Now at Huckberry, you can save 25 percent on the sweat in blue, light grey and dark grey colors. — John Zientek
Lucchese Sutton Boots
Save 30%: Established in San Antonio in 1883, Lucchese makes some of the best cowboy boots available. Now at Zappos, you can save 30 percent on the Sutton style which features a leather shaft, suede foot and understated decorative stitching. The boots are lined with smooth leather, include a cushioned leather insole and have a leather outsole with a rubber heel cap. If you want quality Texan-made boots for a good price, don’t pass these up. — John Zientek
Eddie Bauer Performance Fleece
Save 50%: Winter, at least on the East Coast, is having a revival of sorts. Performance fleece is the jacket you need to stay warm. Today all clearance items are an extra 50% off with code RAINIER. Here are a few picks to get you started. — Meg Lappe
Patagonia Torrentshell Rain Jacket
Save up to 25%: Spring’s arrival signals a change in daylight hours and precipitation and with that transition comes a requisite adjustment of wardrobe: you’re going to need a rain jacket. And if you’re still wearing a heavy plastic rain slicker that causes you to overheat and sweat as soon as your heart begins to beat then take the opportunity of a new year and a new season to upgrade.
Lightweight, breathable water protection is within reach thanks to a deal that’s running right now on Patagonia’s Torrentshell Rain Jacket. The Torrentshell has been Patagonia’s staple rain shell for years and has garnered numerous awards, even earning the top spot on The Wirecutter’s list of “The Best Everyday Rain Jacket.” Patagonia constructed the Torrentshell with its proprietary H2No waterproof membrane and a 50-denier ripstop polyester face fabric to create a jacket with a final weight of 12 ounces. The Torrentshell is also equipped with hand pockets, a deep hood, and zippered underarm vents in case things get toasty.
If you’re looking to save 25% on the Torrentshell, head to Backcountry and select from the colors marked “past season.” Then again, if you’re in dire need of a rain shell and the older styles don’t pique your interest, the Torrentshell is definitely a coat worthy of its full price. — Tanner Bowden
Levi’s Heavy Cotton Canvas Trucker
Save 50%: The Levi’s Trucker is a classic jacket silhouette that’s perfect for transitional weather. If you’re looking for a denim alternative, the brand offers a version cut from durable cotton canvas. It features button-flap chest pockets, welt hand pocket and a zipper closure. It’s a hard-wearing jacket that will last you for years, and now at Zappos, it’s 50 percent off. — John Zientek
G&L Limited Edition Tribute ASAT Classic Guitar
Save 20%: In 1979, legendary electric guitar designer Leo Fender started G&L with two former Fender executives. With his new brand, Fender improved upon his iconic designs with better pickups, bridges and construction. More recently, the brand established its Tribute series, offering affordable takes on the upgraded instruments. Now at Musician’s Friend, you can get the $500 G&L Limited Edition Tribute ASAT guitar for just $400. This Tele-style guitar features an ash body, G&L-designed alnico pickups, individual brass saddles and a maple neck. If you’ve been wanting the bright, crisp sound of a Telecaster, this reasonably-priced option should be at the top of your list. — John Zientek
Alchemy Equipment Top Load Daypack
Save 40%: New Zealand is one of those Goldilocks-zone places where one might ski, surf or hike in the morning and still make it to the office in time for a mid-afternoon meeting. The city to mountain trend is real because of places like New Zealand, where gear transitions between urban and backcountry environments every and perhaps multiple times per day. It’s no wonder that Alchemy Equipment, based in the largest city on the country’s South Island, has managed to create a backpack that truly adapts to any backdrop.
Alchemy Equipment’s 35-liter Top Load Daypack is built like a hiking pack with a sturdy hipbelt and shoulder straps, a lid-style top, side compression straps and heavy-duty ripstop Kodra fabric. The Daypack’s urban-oriented features include a laptop sleeve and seat belt-style straps. But the way in which Alchemy has stylized these components gives the bag a subtle, decidedly non-outdoor look (a lot of black helps, too).
Right now the Daypack can be had on Backcountry for $168, which is 40 percent less than it’s full price. — Tanner Bowden
Grenson Declan Chelsea Boot
Save 25%: For warm weather, suede Chelsea boots are one of the most versatile options for your wardrobe. The slim silhouette can be dressed up with slacks and blazer or dressed down with faded jeans and a T-shirt. Suede adds an element of texture to your outfit and, like other leather, ages gracefully. The British-made Declan Chelsea boots from Grenson feature a snuff suede upper and a leather sole. Now at Todd Snyder, they’re available in half-sizes from 8 to 12 and are 25 percent off. — John Zientek
Huawei Mate 10 Pro
Save $100: The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is an excellent smartphone. It has a huge and beautiful screen, fast processor and a Leica-branded, dual-camera system. In fact, Android Authority named it the “Best Android of 2017,” beating out the Galaxy Note 8 — and now you can get a great deal on it. The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is available on Amazon and Best Buy for $700 — that’s $100 off. The deal lasts through March 24. — Tucker Bowe
Tumi McCoy Gym Bag
Save $99: Tumi’s McCoy gym bag is pricey, but it’s the last one you’ll ever need. Made from a durable ballistic nylon weave, the bag features a waterproof shoe compartment, exterior zip pockets and interior patch pockets. The blacked-out design is tasteful, and now for a limited time, it’s $99 off. — John Zientek
MSR Hubba NX Tents
Save $110: If any tent could be considered a modern classic, it might just be the Hubba Hubba. MSR’s experience designing tents goes way back — its first shelter debuted in 1973. It built the Hubba Hubba for lightweight backpacking but constructed it with enough space to keep even the once-in-a-while camper will be comfortable. That’s largely a result of an innovative single-unit pole design that stretches the interior walls wide and lifts the tent ceiling at the same time. The result being that the two-person Hubba Hubba is 43 cubic feet in volume, weighs just under four pounds and packs down smaller than most sleeping bags. That makes the tent light enough for multi-day treks and spacious enough for a weekend music festival.
The two-person Hubba Hubba NX is currently marked down by $110 on Massdrop, along with its one-, three- and four-person counterparts. Massdrop is even giving the discount to those interested in the even lighter Fast and Light versions of the Hubba series, which are lighter and smaller than the already-proven classic. — Tanner Bowden
Allen Edmonds Leather Dopp Kit
Save 43%: If you’re in need of a quality Dopp kit, Allen Edmonds has you covered. Made in the USA, it is cut from full-grain leather, includes a YKK zipper and is lined with water repellant, stain resistant nylon. It’s the ideal size for travel and now on the brand’s site, it’s 43 percent off. — John Zientek
Hanwag Hiking Boots
Save up to 50%: Hanwag’s expertise in bootmaking goes all the way back to 1919 when Hans Wagner learned how to double stitch boots in Munich, Germany. Two years later he opened a shoemaking workshop in the Bavarian town of Vierkirchen, where Hanwag continues to make some of the finest and most durable hiking boots available. Even now that machines have come to aid the gnarled hands in producing each pair of Hanwag boots, the quality remains.
That quality comes at a price — a price that can climb as high as $500 — but right now there’s a fair selection of discounted Hanwags available for 50 percent off at Mountain Steals. Stand-outs in the offering are the Lhasa, a yak leather trekking boot with a Vibram sole, and the Patoja, which Hanwag built with nubuck for year-round wear. — Tanner Bowden
PF Flyers Center Lo
Save $10: It’s hard to beat the casual versatility of canvas sneakers for warm weather.

If Cons or Vans aren’t your style, check out this blacked-out pair from PF Flyers. They feature a rugged canvas upper, vulcanized rubber outsole and detailing unique to the brand. For a limited time at Zappos, they’re $10 off. — John Zientek
Incase City Compact Backpack
Save $38: Carrying a briefcase has become an antiquated practice, especially with the other options out there, namely backpacks. A work backpack is pretty useless unless it’s durable with an easy-to-access laptop pocket and comfortable to wear. Incase City Compact Backpack fits the bill and the gunmetal grey color is on sale now for 35% off. — Meg Lappe
KEF Q100 Bookshelf Speakers
Save $250: The KEF Q100s are some the best bookshelf speakers you can find. Their excellent clarity and soundstage push way beyond their normally $550 asking price — and now that price has been nearly halved. You can find the Q100s for $300 on Best Buy and Amazon. If you’re looking for some passive bookshelf speakers to hook up to your home’s stereo system, consider these an audiophile-grade option that’s actually affordable. — Tucker Bowe, Staff Writer

Most pocket knives, buy design already check those boxes, but the Sinkevich Carbon Fiber KVT by Zero Tolerance Knives goes above and beyond.

Rare Japanese Whiskies
Save 20%: A gift for your boss’s birthday? Early Father’s Day shopping? An extra-long week ahead of you? Whatever your reason or justification, taking the form of 20 percent off their entire collection of rare bottles, the Japanese whisky sellers at Dekanta have provided the perfect diving board into East Asia’s buzzing brown spirit market. Their entire collection includes more than 800 different whiskies running from as low as the cost of a pair of sunglasses ($100) to as high a decent used car ($7,200). Sale standouts include an 18-year distilled in the shadow of Mount Fuji, a popular but decidedly old-school blend and a bottle whose origin is so mysterious no one even knows where or for how long it was distilled. — Will Price

Save 25%: I remember the first time I pulled on Hestra’s Fall Line Mitten. It was at Keystone two years ago, and the minute I felt the puppy-soft loft leather, I was hooked.

If you’re unfamiliar with Hestra, the Swedish brand has been making leather gloves since 1936, and continues to make the finest leather gloves for outdoor pursuits on the market.
