Vortix Eye Massager V2.0
Screens are unavoidable these days — you’re even reading this off a screen right now. With the constant strain on your eyes, it’s become increasingly important to give your eyes rest. If you suffer from headaches and irritated eyes, a wearable eye pillow might be the solution you’re looking for.

The Vortix Eye Massager v2.0 uses a gentle air pressure system combined with heated massaging technology to relax the ciliary muscles of the eyes and soothe fatigue with a therapeutic experience. Designed by a team of software and hardware engineers who certainly know the effects of screen usage, the device also addresses insomnia, dry eyes and sinus pressure. With added benefits like playing relaxing nature sounds during use and being foldable for travel, this eye massager has your peepers in mind.

Use the code GP30 for 30 percent off the Vortix Eye Massager v2.0.

450+ Outerknown Basics
Save Up to 60%>A quick glance over Outerknown’s wares and its values are pretty apparent — unfussy, sustainably-made clothes that are easy to fit into your wardrobe. They also happen to be reasonably affordable — which is why when they go on sale, the moment is to be seized. Going on right now, Outerknown’s Sunset Sale has t-shirts, sweaters, button downs, pants, shorts and plenty in-between discounted up to 60 percent (I found a few items up to 70 percent, too, like this denim shirt). Mainline colors and sizes are mostly still in stock as of publishing. — Will Price

Arc’teryx Beta LT Jacket
Save 30%: The Beta LT sets the bar for all other technical wet-weather shells, and at a list price of $525, one would certainly hope so. But there are loads of expensive jackets out there, many of them featuring Gore-Tex fabrics and sophisticated construction.

So why choose this one? The fit, for one, is a cut above the competition; a slightly-extended rear hem fits comfortably under a climbing harness, the hood is cut with enough room to wrap over a skiing or climbing helmet and the trim fit through the body keeps the all-important interior layers closer to your skin. All these elements come together to help make the best use of the carefully-chosen fabrics and sealed seam placements.

All in all, you’re getting a Gore-Tex Pro shell with the great styling and attention to detail that Arc’teryx is known for, making for an outer layer that can keep you dry and comfortable season after season. Best of all, today you can knock $157 off the list price — making one of the best rain jackets available just within reach. — Andy Frakes

Simplehuman 38-Liter Trash Bin
Save $30: We’ve tried to tell you before about the virtues of Simplehuman’s sleek and sturdy garbage bins — and how when they go on sale, the value jumps from “good” to “excellent.”

So why pay upwards of $100 for a place to put your trash? It might be hard to believe, but Simplehuman’s bins actually are that much better than the average plastic or steel bin you might already have in your kitchen. These over-engineered bins are practically a home-improvement investment, because you’re unlikely to ever need a new one. The lid-lift pedals on every Simplehuman model are built to withstand 150,000+ actuations, the soft-close lids are damn near airtight (odors in, bugs and curious pets out), and every unit comes with a 10-year warranty. Take more than 20% off the list price, and pick up one of these today — you won’t be sorry. — Andy Frakes

Adventure Medical Kits Sportsman Series
Save 20%: Packing for a trip, especially one out into the wilderness, can be stressful. There’s almost always something that doesn’t end up in the bag — those bars you’d been saving, that extra layer, sunglasses. Sometimes a first aid kit doesn’t even make the list in the first place though, and that’s an oversight.

Adventure Medical Kits makes a collection of pre-arranged packable kits geared to specific uses. Like the Whitetail, which is currently 20 percent off, and is designed for hunting and fishing trips. It weighs under a pound and includes bandages, wound care essentials, blister and burn care items, a CPR face shield, common medications, and essential tools like shears and tape. It’s the type of thing you can put in your bag and leave it there, so there’s never a chance of forgetting it at home.

The Bighorn Kit, which is designed for larger groups, is also available at a discount for Prime members — just apply the coupon using the button near the price listing. — Tanner Bowden
