Anova Sous Vide Circulator
Save 35%Getting into sous vide requires a circulator, and for that there are two choices that most reviewers and customers lean toward — ChefSteps’ Joule and Anova’s Precision Cooker. Both have apps to control temperature on your smartphone (the Joule’s app is undeniably more robust, complete with hundreds of self-guided recipes and doneness guides), and the Joule is slightly more compact, but Anova’s circulator has buttons to control the device on the actual device, a feature lacking on the Joule.
Today the split decision goes the way of the Anova Precision cooker, which is 35 percent off at Best Buy today (and, for what it’s worth, Anova’s smaller Nano Precision Cooker is also on sale, albeit less so). — Will Price
Wolf Howard Valet Tray With Watch Roll
Save DEAL: A valet tray is a required piece of kit for every self-respecting guy, but if you’re also a watch lover with multiple timepieces, it’s tough to find a catch-all solution to store your keys, phone, and watches. One solution is the Howard Valet Tray With Roll from Wolf, which includes five storage compartments, a stationary watch cuff with two watch guards, a removable tray for cufflinks and USB charging and a small watch roll. The Howard has a pebbled leather exterior, ultrasuede lining, chrome-finished hardware and is available in navy or grey finishes. Oh, and right now, it’s available for only $90, a $70 savings from the list price of $160. — Oren Hartov
Save 25% Leatherman tools are revered for their beautiful design, long-lasting durability and high-quality performance. These multitools will help you face any challenge in the backcountry and in the office, too. Whether you need a pocket knife, a bottle opener or a serrated knife (ideally all in one streamlined device), Leatherman is the place to seek and find. — Meg Lappe
Bose QC20 Noise-Canceling In-Ear Headphones
Save $101: Even though there are a bunch of really good over-ear noise-canceling headphones – the Sony WH-1000XM3 being our new favorites, edging out the Bose QC35 II – there aren’t nearly as many good in-ear models. In fact, the Bose makes the two best noise-canceling in-ear headphones out there. There’s the Bose QC20s ($250, wired) and the Bose QC30s ($300, wireless). Both are fairly expensive, but you can get a pretty good deal on the wired models if you go on eBay right now. It’s selling the Bose QC20s for $149, which is over $100 less what Bose is currently selling them for.
Hestra Leather Gloves
Save 50%:Founded in 1936, Swedish brand Hestra makes some of the best leather gloves money can buy. Until recently, the brand was primarily known in North America as a producer of ski gloves, but it also produces a range of ready-to-wear, made-to-measure and bespoke gloves for everyday wear. The gloves are cut and sewn using traditional glove-making techniques which date back to 17th-century France.
Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save 50 percent on a number of styles from the fourth-generation family-owned business. The gloves are cut from leathers like deerskin, hairsheep and sheepskin and features details like elasticized inner cuffs, full linings and hand-stitching. If you need a new pair of gloves for the winter months, don’t miss this sale — gloves are as little as $60. — John Zientek

Friends and Family
Save 30% at Ralph Lauren Thanks to Ralph Lauren’s biannual Friends and Family sale, you can save 30 percent on items from Polo, RRL, Purple Label and other awesome brands created by this uniquely American icon. Just use the code FAMILY at checkout. — Justin Fenner
Orient Executive Sun & Moon V.3
Save $225: Mechanical complicated watches are cool — we’re probably all in agreement on this one. How could something that gives you a day/night indicator or all kinds of calendar information running on a bunch of gears and wheels and the motion of your wrist not be dope? The one problem is that these types of watches are generally pricey. Like, really pricey, if we’re talking about a complicated watch from a top Swiss brand.
The Executive Sun & Moon V. 3 is available on Massdrop right now for $230 ($250 for the gold-tone version) and includes the following functions: 21-jewel automatic in-house movement with 40 hours of power-reserve, stainless steel 42.5mm case with sapphire crystal and display case back, hours/minutes/seconds hands, day and date display, AM/PM indicator in the form of a rotating disc displaying either the sun or moon, and water resistance to 50m. With four dial options available, this is a great entryway for many people into the world of complicated timepieces. — Oren Hartov
Sonos Play:1 Speaker (Refurbished)
Save $30: The Sonos Play:1 speaker normally costs $149, but Sonos is selling certified refurbished models on its website for just $119 – you save an extra $30 per speaker. If you looking to add to your current Sonos system, or if you’re late to the party and just want to try one out, it’s a great chance to one (or more) Sonos speakers on the cheap.
Veja V-10 Suede Sneakers
Save 20%:Founded in 2004, French footwear brand Veja champions ecologically-friendly manufacturing and fair working conditions while producing a range of tasteful sneakers. One of its notable styles, the V-10, is made from ecologically tanned leather, organic cotton and wild rubber from the Amazon. If you’re in the market for a new pair of kicks and want a pair that doesn’t have as much of an impact on the environment, these are well worth the list price. But for a limited time, you can save 20 percent on a pair in light-brown suede at East Dane — that’s $28 off. — John Zientek
WEDNESDAY, October 17
Save $100: Today, the Moccamaster K741 is fully $100 off its retail price. This model features a pour-over basket, a matte silver finish and brews its full 40-ounce max load in 6 minutes or less. All Moccamaster models are certified by the SCA and ECBC (an incredibly challenging feat) and all are still handmade and tested before shipping. — Will Price
J.Crew Flash Sale
Save 35%: The weather has taken a rapid turn into fall on the East Coast, and I’m personally scrambling to figure out how many layers I need before it’s too much. Whether sub-freezing temperatures are already your new normal, or you’re still relishing in the sunny and seventy weather, there’s plenty of new apparel items to go around at the J.Crew flash sale. For the next 48 hours, J.Crew is offering 35 percent off all new items including tees, shirts, suits, polos, denim and more. All new items grace the page of your web browser alongside a healthy discount of 35 percent. We’re big fans of everything you’ll see below, plus the vests, sherpa-lined windbreakers and trench coats, which you can find online. Enter code FLASH at checkout to save. — Meg Lappe
The North Face Ventrix Jacket
Save 45%: Last year, when The North Face revealed Ventrix, it’s first take on active insulation, we were skeptical. Active insulation, a form of synthetic insulation that’s meant to be worn during activity and is highly breathable, isn’t new — if anything, The North Face was quite late to the game. But Ventrix is different; its fluffy structure is perforated with tiny holes that close and expand as the body moves, allowing for dynamic temperature regulation.
It’s an awesome concept, but again, when we first heard about it, we weren’t sold. But then we tried Ventrix — on hikes and ski tours and just around town — and it worked. It worked really well actually, so we included it on our list of Best Synthetic Down Jackets of 2018. We continue to stand by that choice even more so now that The North Face has expanded the scope of Ventrix into a variety of jackets (and a pair of wild-looking shorts) for 2019.
It’s still the most innovative iteration of active insulation we’ve seen, and right now you can even snag the original jacket in last season’s colors for $89 off. — Tanner Bowden
Dyson V10 Cordless Vacuum
Save 16%: Today on Amazon, the V10 Motorhead — the base model, which comes with only the essential detachable heads for difference surfaces and areas — is on sale at its lowest price to date. To my mind, this sale puts the V10 in a more fair price point. — Will Price
Epperson Mountaineering Bags and Backpacks
Save 35%: California-based designer Yuki Matsuda has a penchant for well-made products. Born in Osaka, Japan, Matsuda moved to the US when he was 18 years old and immersed himself in the world of vintage clothing. He bought and sold products at the Rose Bowl market and eventually tapped some of the best craftspeople on the continent to produce some of his own designs. Matsuda works with traditional bootmakers in Maine for his footwear brand Yuketen and collaborates with artisans in Mexico for his knitwear brand Chamula. Monitaly — the clothing brand that Matsuda started in 1995 — riffs on classic American designs like military gear, Baja hoodies and parkas, and is made in America.
When Matsuda wanted to expand into bags and backpacks, he encountered Epperson Mountaineering, the heritage bag brand founded by Mark Epperson in 1973. With a wealth of history to draw on, Matsuda began to offer a range of well-made throwback mountaineering bags under the Epperson name. Made in Montana, the bags utilize industry-standard Cordura, YKK zippers and mountaineering-spec cording.
If you’re in the market for a new bag, head over to End where a range of Epperson Mountaineering bags are 35 percent off. Choose from a tote, a backpack and a travel bag, among others, and rest assured you’ll be getting a top-tier bag for your money. — John Zientek

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.
5 Great Pocket Knives Are on Sale Right Now
Save up to 48%: The best knife is the one that you have on you, and right now Massdrop has a vareity of them available at a significant discount. — Tanner Bowden
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
FRIDAY, October 19
Global Chef’s Knife
Save $80: Among a collection of other Global knives, the G-2 Chef’s Knife (its most popular blade) is more than 50 percent on Massdrop right now. That’s well under its lowest reported price on Amazon. The drop will be active for the next three days.
Waterford Old Fashioned Set
Save $150: Waterford, named after its hometown of Waterford, Ireland, has been making fine crystal goods for the home since 1783. Its collections, of which there are many, typically run quite expensive.
Launched in 1991, its Marquise collection is markedly less so. Today, the Marquise Collection’s Brady decanter and two Old Fashioned glasses is marked down to $100 from its usual $250 price tag. — Will Price
Alternative Apparel Champ Sweater
Save 50%: Alternative Apparel makes some of the most comfortable sweatshirts from a unique fabric called Eco-Fleece. The tri-blend fleece is made with recycled polyester, organic cotton and a touch of rayon so it’s as much a responsible purchase as it is a cozy one. Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save 50 percent on the Champ sweatshirt, a classic crew-neck sweater with raglan sleeves. Available in sizes XS to XXXL, it costs just $27 — hard to find fault with that. — John Zientek
Save $195: Do you enjoy breathing compressed gas mixtures whilst waving at sea turtles underwater, perhaps expecting them to wave back at you? Do you hate the idea of replacing batteries on your quartz watch, but hate the idea of spending lots of money on a fancy automatic watch even more? If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then this Seiko 5 could be the watch for you.
The Seiko 5 line delivers an almost absurd amount of value into incredibly affordable watches, of which the SRP605K2 is a prime example. You get a Seiko 4R36 21-jewel automatic movement that beats at 21,600 bph and features a 40-hour power reserve, a 44mm stainless steel case, Hardlex crystal, display case back, unidirectional rotating bezel, day-date display, and 100m of water resistance, all for $150 on Massdrop. Designed specifically for diving, the SRP605K2 also gives you a rubber accordion strap and shrouded crown with knurling for easy grip. While 44mm is certainly on the larger side for a watch case, on a dive watch the extra size should give you some added visibility under water.
