BioLite Coffee Lover Kit
Save 17%: A good cup of coffee isn’t something you should have to go without when you’re camping. The coffee lover kit from BioLite includes a four-pack of Kuju coffee and an insulated MiiR mug, so you don’t have to worry about getting your caffeine fix any longer. Snatch one while you can — the limited edition packs and mug might not last past Memorial Day. — Meg Lappe
Save up to 70%: With beach weather just around the corner, it’s an opportune time to pick up some laid-back summer threads. Fortunately, at Huckberry’s Memorial Day Sale you can save up to 70 percent on sun-ready clothing from Faherty. Choose between patterned shirts, versatile swim trunks and cozy sweatshirts for cool evenings. Faherty designs every fabric from scratch, so you’ll get a well-considered, comfortable garments at a great price. — John Zientek
My Favorite Daypack Is Currently on Sale
Save 25%: Unlike my stance on expedition bags, I never used to give much thought to daypacks. I’d prep for any outing that didn’t require the capacity of my 65-liter trekking pack by dumping my things into whatever school bag or ski pack was at-hand. As a kid, that was a forest green L.L.Bean backpack with my initials stitched to its face, and later in life, it was a multi-sport bag by Dakine.
Oh, what a world I was missing. Last fall, I picked up Osprey’s Stratos in its 24-liter volume (there’s also a larger 34-liter version), and it has since changed how I think about the daypack. For instance, I had no idea that my back could be anything but hot and sweaty, and didn’t realize that hip support is still crucial, even on short hikes.
The Stratos is outfitted with all the pockets, compression straps and access points you’d expect from a backpack company — especially one with a golden reputation among long-distance thru-hikers — but the standout for me has been its mesh back panel. It’s raised and tensioned away from the pack’s main vestibule, which provides a comfy trampoline-like feel and allows lots of air to flow between my back and the bag, which minimizes the sweaty back issue I had used to view as unavoidable. The mesh also integrates into the hipbelt, wrapping its arms around my lower torso like a well-studied dance partner for a fit that’s more comfortable than any I’ve known before.
Right now Backcountry is holding a Memorial Day Sale, and the Stratos is currently 25 percent off. It’s perfect timing for a deal — just in time for hiking season. — Tanner Bowden
YLighting Memorial Day Sale
Save 40%: YLighting is an online purveyor of high-design lighting (think Design Within Reach, but just lights). As you might expect, much of its wares are typically pricey and out of reach for the normal, everyday buyer. This weekend that all changes — a least a little.
The company, which has 20 percent off sales quite often, cut prices to up to 40 percent for its Memorial Day sale, which is live right now. — Will Price
Cheap Outdoor Furniture
Save up to 70%: At Gear Patrol, we value products that last, are innovative and generally, in one way or another, bring an extra kernel of joy to your life. The products on sale in eBay’s absolutely enormous outdoor sale are not these things, but for those with an empty back porch at this point in the season, it can certainly fill a hole.
The sale, all 54,014 listed items of it, is live now, and slices up to 70 percent off a range of outdoor and patio furniture. Use code PMEMDAY for an extra 15 percent off at checkout (capped at $50), too. — Will Price
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A1 Speaker
Save $60 plus a Power Bank: Right now, Huckberry is offering a wide range of Memorial Day deals, on everything from boots (here) to backpacks (here), outerwear (here) to home accessories (here). In the consumer electronics realm, which is where my eye tends to go, you can get a great deal on Bang & Olufsen’s small-yet-powerful Bluetooth speaker — the Beoplay A1. It normally costs $249 on the company’s website, but if you act now you get it and a portable power bank for $188. The combo will give you well over 24 hours of playtime. It’s the perfect picnic partner.
Velomacchi Memorial Day Weekend Sale
Save 30%: Use the code SPRING30 at Velomacchi when you checkout and save 30% on everything, sitewide now through May 27. Whether you’re heading into the city on your daily commute or escaping the urban sprawl all together for the weekend, Velomacchi’s tough-as-hell roll-top backpacks, duffle bag and impact sleeves are up to the task. We put them to the test on a seven-day ride from Seattle to Anchorage through British Columbia and the Yukon, and they all came out the other end looking better than us — so yeah, they’re filed tested and Gear Patrol approved. — Bryan Campbell
Todd Snyder Annual Spring Sale
Save up to 60%: New York-based retailer Todd Snyder is having its Annual Spring Sale and it’s a strong reason to invest in some wardrobe essentials. Currently, you can save 30 percent on a range of new styles and up to 60 percent on older sale items. If you’ve been waiting to spend on well-made garments, this is the time. — John Zientek
LifeProof Cases for iPhone X
Save 15%: It’s Memorial Day weekend and for many of us that means a little too good of a time. And maybe a dropped iPhone X and $1,000 down the drain. To guard against such an incident, LifeProof is running a 15-percent-off sale on all its smartphone cases (not just iPhone X case). Also, if you’re looking for a rugged portable Bluetooth speaker, you can get 30-percent off all Aquaphonics speakers. The site-wide sale is running now through next Tuesday, the 29th. — Tucker Bowe
Yeti Hopper Backflip
Save $60: Earlier this year, when Yeti announced a new collection of rugged products it was a burly camping chair called the Hondo that became the newsworthy standout. But it wasn’t the only product revealed — the new collection included wine tumblers, a magnetic waterproof pouch, a tote (which may turn out to be a sleeper), and a backpack version of its popular Hopper soft cooler called the Backflip.
Yeti is credited as the originator of the overbuilt, everything-proof hard-sided cooler and owning one has become imbued with a particular symbolic status. The brand has had to live up to its own reputation with every successive product, and its soft coolers were no exception. The Hopper series has done that, with a puncture-resistant soft exterior called DryHide and super-strong leak-proof zippers. Its soft coolers are lighter and notably more portable, which may make them even more effective in providing practical everyday use.
The Backflip gives the Hopper series even more potential with the addition of backpack straps that make carrying a fully-loaded cooler across longer distances more feasible. The Backflip can accommodate 20 cans at a two-to-one can-to-ice ratio and has multiple handles for hauling and additional webbing for lashing.
Sales on Yeti products are rare, especially on something as new as the Hopper Backflip. Right now, however, Backcountry is offering its customers the chance to take 20 percent off one full-priced item during its Memorial Day Sale and the Backflip, one of Yeti’s newest products, is included in the deal. Use the code MEMORIALDAY20 at checkout, or click the small banner at the top of the screen to apply the discount. — Tanner Bowden
Summer Motorcycle Jacket Sale
Save up to 48%: As the temperature rises, it’s always tempting to dress down before heading out for a ride. However, keeping safety as your number one priority, it’s still easy to stay cool — the trick is just wearing the right jacket. Whether you’re a fan of the more technical-styled textile jackets or prefer the old school look of leather, ventilation is critical. You want to save your skin, but you certainly don’t want to melt out of it while stuck traffic. Right now you can save up to 48% over on revzilla.com, just in time for the hotter months and potentially sweatier rides. — Bryan Campbell
East Dane Spring Sale
Save up to 40%: East Dane is currently having its Spring Sale and a range of new styles are up to 40 percent off. It’s the perfect time to stock up on shirts, shorts and shoes for the warmer months, and unlike other sales, you won’t have to choose from last season’s leftovers. If you see something that’ll look good in your wardrobe don’t hesitate, because sizes are selling out quickly. — John Zientek
Ryobi 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Ultimate Combo Kit
Save $100: The Ryobi 18-Volt One+ Lithium-Ion Ultimate Combo Kit includes six tools and comes in a carrying case bright enough to prevent any future losses. Save $100 on a compact drill, impact driver, circular saw and reciprocating saw, two batteries, and a charger — all of which come with a three-year warranty.

Patagonia Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Pullover
Save $69: The Patagonia Synchilla Snap-T Fleece pullover is iconic for a reason — it works just as well on the mountain as it does around the campfire. Since 1985 it’s been working hard and hardly working meaning, you can go straight from a hike to a brewery without breaking a sweat over your attire. Depending on the color you choose, you can save up to $69 on the classic fleece with a lifetime guarantee. — Meg Lappe
Klipsch R-15M Bookshelf Speakers
Save $48: Even now, when the popularity of multiroom, Bluetooth and smart speakers has skyrocketed, there’s still a ton of interest in true stereo sound. It’s more complicated to experience, of course, having to build out your system, but it’s way more immersive and the track sounds truer to the artist’s original recordings. If you’re looking to take the step into stereo audio, you need a good pair of bookshelf or floor-standing speakers. The Klipsch R-15Ms are a great entry-level option. The passive bookshelf speakers combine stellar design and sound, and now they’re on sale on Amazon. Normally $250, you can get them for $202 — that’s $48 off. — Tucker Bowe
Summer Motorcycle Glove Sale
Save up to 50%: When the hot weather rolls in it’s easy to be tempted into scaling back on the amount of gear you wear in order to stay cool. One important piece of gear people tend to shed first is their gloves — huge mistake. In the event of a crash or a slide, the gut reaction is to put out your hands to protect yourself and to prop your self up, even when you’re still sliding across the asphalt. Now consider doing that with your bare hands. There are motorcycle gloves out there made specifically for warm weather riding and today there’s a whole selection on sale at Revzilla.com. So, now you have no excuse to ride bare-handed this summer. — Bryan Campbell
Wolverine Evans 1000 Mile Boot
Save 30%: Now’s a great chance to score a pair of rugged American-made boots for a great deal. East Dane is offering 30 percent off of the Evans 1000 Mile boot from Michigan-based Wolverine. The archival-style features a Horween leather upper, Goodyear welt construction and a Vibram outsole. The rubber sole is a major upgrade compared so similar styles and will give you additional traction in wet conditions. The pattern hasn’t changed that much for over a century old, and now, instead of spending $400, you can pick these boots up for $280. — John Zientek
Sperry Gold Cup Captain’s Crepe Oxford
Save 30%: Boat shoes are a solid summer footwear option for good reason: the slip-on style is appropriate in a range of settings and remains comfortable on the hottest of days. While canvas is the traditional material used in uppers, Sperry offers a great leather upgrade with its Gold Cup Captain’s Crepe Oxford. The style utilizes the silhouette you know and love, but adds premium materials and quality manufacturing techniques. It has a full-grain leather upper, a lambskin lining and a crepe sole, and features traditional welt construction and a hand-sewn toe. Normally $200, the shoe is 30 percent off at East Dane and now costs $140. A the world of refined slip-ons, this price is hard to beat. — John Zientek
Save up to 50%: Ever since Rev’It! made its way from Europe to the US, there’s been a noticeable effort to tailor new gear to the casual American style. Rev’It! hasn’t stopped making super technical jackets and pants, but what it’s done (and quite brilliantly) is combined the performance of its technical and tactical looking offerings with everyday wardrobes. The Quartz H20 Rain Jacket and Memphis H20 Jeans are exemplary examples of how Rev’It! has pulled off the feat of balancing form and function. Today, on Revzilla each is on sale at 35% and 31% off respectively. — Bryan Campbell
Osprey Levity Backpack
Save $54: Last summer, when our Outdoors and Fitness Desk attended the biannual tradeshow called Outdoor Retailer — a showcase of thousands of upcoming products and gadgets — we were especially impressed with one backpack out of the hundreds that we saw: the Osprey Levity.
Why? Because it’s an ultralight backpack — Osprey gave it the slightly more hyperbolic “superultralight” descriptor — that packs plenty of features for mainstream hikers to appreciate. Like a pocket-equipped lid, a large expanding front sleeve, side holsters for a water bottle and other gear, and exterior paracord that can be used to lash essentials to the outside of the bag. And the Levity has a mesh back panel that emphasizes comfort and breathability.
Most backpacks that weigh in under two pounds (the Levity is 1.85 pounds in the 45-liter version and 1.95 pounds for the 60-liter) make sacrifices to get there — that often means fewer features and comfort, or expensive materials that drive the price up. These backpacks are often designed by custom makers and have hardcore enthusiasts in mind. However, Osprey has found a firm middle ground in the Levity; it’s still an ultralight bag that won’t be for everyone, but it can also act as an affordable and user-friendly introduction to the often-intimidating world of lightweight backpacking.
Speaking of price, the 60-liter Levity retails for $270, and because it’s a brand new product, it won’t be found in the sale section any time soon. But, right now Backcountry is holding a sale in which you can take 20 percent off one full-priced item using the code MEMORIALDAY20. That can be applied to the Levity, bringing its total down to $216. — Tanner Bowden
Bonavita Electric Pour Over Kettle
Save 52%: Walking the pour over path requires gear, and that gear begets more gear, and that gear makes you wonder if you need another bit of gear and eventually making a cup of coffee becomes a $1,000 endeavor.
But just after choosing your pour over mechanism (the most popular being Chemex, Hario and Kalita), you need something to pour the water onto the grinds — and no, dumping the whole lot of water all at once is not a great idea. A full dump of water doesn’t allow your ground beans to aerate, de-gas or bloom, all fancy terms that, when the appropriate time is taken to pour water over with a bit more finesse, make for much better cups of coffee. Finesse is best achieved by way of a kettle with a gooseneck spout (basically a very thin spout), and that’s exactly what this heavily discounted Bonavita Electric Kettle has.
The kettle, which usually retails for $60, is $30 right now, comes with a two-year warranty, has an auto-shutoff function and brings water to perfect coffee temperature in about 3 minutes (boils in 5!). — Will Price
Dyson V7 Vacuum
Save: $260: I won’t presume, but I for one am not driven to pick up the very newest in vacuums like I might with sneakers or whiskey. But, I do live in an apartment with other humans and dogs and do see the need to have in my possession a vacuum that’s worth a shit.
Thus, eBay brings us Dyson V7 for $191. Released in 2017, the V7 is a monster of a cordless vacuum (not quite as monstrous as the V10, but $500 cheaper) when it comes to suction, function, head rotation and clean dirt ejection. It was launched as the budget version of the V8, so it has a slightly weaker battery and suction in comparison, but is plenty to suck up all manner of everyday dirt, dust and dog hair.
This V7 deal is for manufacturer-refurbished models only, but fear not — refurbs are stringently regulated by both Dyson and eBay, as there’s no incentive for either to sell a shitty version of the product.
To get to the $191 price (that’s with shipping & taxes), use code PMEMDAY at checkout. — Will Price
Allen Edmonds Shoes
Save up to 52%: Allen Edmonds crafts some of the best American-made Goodyear welted shoes available from its Port Washington, Wisconsin factory. As such, the company has been a staple of the American footwear industry for over 95 years. If you’re in the market for a new pair of well-made shoes, Nordstrom Rack is offering up to 52 percent off classic Allen Edmonds styles. From loafers to bluchers to derbies, there’s something for everyone at a solid discount, but don’t wait long because this sale won’t be around long. — John Zientek
Eddie Bauer Sale
Save 40%: Start celebrating Memorial Day early this week with Eddie Bauer’s big sale. Almost everything is 40 percent off — on new items as well as clearance products. Some highlights include hard-to-pass-up deals on hiking boots, caps, vests, sweat-wicking tee shirts and more. Use code TRIBUTE to start saving now.– Meg Lappe
Anker SoundCore Bluetooth Speaker
Save 65%: Anker made a name for itself making good-looking gadgets to compliment your everyday lifestyle and last year, the brand dove into the audio product market. It should come as no surprise the Bluetooth speakers Anker has cranked out are equally thoughtful in design and performance as the rest of its lineup. Which is why today’s deal on the Anker SoundCore Bluetooth Speaker is that much more special because it’s at the lowest price it has ever been at $24, down from $80. Saving 70% on a high-quality portable speaker is hard to pass up. — Bryan Campbell
Tempur-Pedic Mattress Topper
Save up to 47%: Since the dawn of the memory foam mattress, two complaints have bubbled to the surface time and time again — they sleep hot and they don’t provide enough support. Getting a Tempur-Pedic’s mattress topper solves the latter.
By placing a memory foam mattress topper on a traditional spring-frame mattress you get the more solid back and lumbar support you need, and the magnificent melt-into-your-bed effect of the memory foam. The Tempur-Pedic mattress toppers can also just as easily be rolled up and thrown down at a campsite.
All sizes of the Tempur-Pedic topper are on sale now on Amazon for at least 25 percent off the typical price, with some nearly 50 percent off. And as for the second issue of sleeping hot, we recommend extra crisp Snowe percale sheets or a set of Rough Linen sheets. — Will Price
5 Awesome Coolers You Can Get on Sale Now
Save up to $112: Coolers have become high-end, expensive and covet-worthy products, and because they’re not updated on a seasonal or annual basis, (there’s no need to), and they’re built to take a beating and last forever, they rarely go on sale. — Tanner Bowden
