Mystery Ranch Backpacks
Save 20%: The scope of Mystery Ranch’s backpack collection has grown. The brand is still young — it was founded in 2000 — but the time since it’s expanded from its roots in mountaineering, hunting, wildfire fighting and the military to embrace world travelers and urban dwellers too. The common thread running through all of these categories is durability; even Mystery Ranch’s commuter-oriented Urban Assault uses rugged 500-denier Cordura fabric.
Huckberry is currently selling a full range of Mystery Ranch bags for roughly 20 percent off. The sale includes the new Mission Rover, which is a 43-liter clamshell-style travel backpack that’s built with features like a separate compartment for dirty shoes and small mesh pockets for documents and passports. It’s a bag like this that goes to show that Mystery Ranch isn’t just thinking about its base of hardcore users. — Tanner Bowden
The Old School Motorcycle Jacket You Want is $240 Off
Save 36%: Very few things in the fashion world are as timeless as a leather jacket, especially the bomber. Rev’It’s Pilot Jacket not only captures that old-school style and cool factor, but it’s also a legitimate motorcycle jacket. Elbow, shoulder and back protection is hidden under abrasion-resistant leather to maintain style but provide protection in the event of a fall while riding. The detachable thermal liner and fur collar gives this ageless jacket multi-season functionality too. — Bryan Campbell
ELAC Debut B6 Bookshelf Speakers
Save $50: About two months ago we ran a deal on the ELAC Debut B5 passive speakers – great, Andrew Jones designed bookshelf speakers that are normally $250, but were selling for $200. This time around, there’s a deal on ELAC Debut B6 passive speakers. They’re nearly identical to those other Debut speakers, but the B6 speakers are just a little bigger and a little nicer. They have a significantly larger woofer so you’re gonna get punchier bass. Normally $300, Amazon dropped the price to $250, which is actually now the same price as the smaller B5 speakers. If you’re looking to get a great pair of Andrew Jones-designed passive speakers, here’s your chance. It’s also worth noting that if you want to build out a larger sound system, a handful of the other Debut series speakers are on sale, too. You can get a center console and a subwoofer, both which are $50 off their normal MSRP.

Z Zegna Dress Shirts
Save 48%:In 1910, Ermenegildo Zegna founded the Lanificio Zegna wool mill in Trivero Italy. Over the past century, the mill garnered a reputation for producing some of the best fabrics available and started its own luxury menswear brand. The family-owned Ermenegildo Zenga brand launched a made-to-measure service in the ‘70s and expanded through the global market in the ‘80s. To appeal to a younger client, the brand created the Z Zegna line in the early aughts.
Though Z Zegna may be more slim-fit and conspicuous, the line still utilizes top-tier fabrics and time-tested construction methods. While the brand’s dress shirts normally retail for over $250, you can save up to 48 percent on a range of them at Nordstrom Rack. Available with a range of collar types and fabrics, prices start at just $127. — John Zientek
Mondaine Railways Tube Desk Clock
Save 25%: While your iPhone is a perfectly adequate time-telling device, those design-obsessed among us tend to gravitate toward something a bit more refined to do the same job. Since the 1980s, Mondaine has held the license from the Swiss Federal Railways to produce clocks and watches based on the Official Swiss Railway Clock, designed in 1944 by engineer Hans Hifiker. Over the years, they’ve produced numerous iterations of the classic Swiss model, which can often be found for sale in design boutiques such as the MoMA Design Store.
If you’re looking for a way to spruce up your desk, right now you can pick up a Mondaine Railways Tube Desk Clock for $75, a $25 savings off the common Amazon price. Available in either black or white, the clock features a simple, Bauhaus-inspired dial, stainless steel case with a mineral crystal and quartz movement that includes day and date functions. Additionally, the clock itself is even removable from the tube-shaped case and can be used as a travel clock. — Oren Hartov
