Rev’It! Regent Boots
Save $100: Rev’It built its reputation in Europe on long-lasting, functional but tactical looking motorcycle gear. When Rev’It cam to the States, however, it injected the casual and old school style that flourishes here to products like the Regent Boots and made a mark on this side of the pond too. Today you can save $100 on some of the toughest boots the brand makes and walk around with vintage style knowing you’ve kept some style despite strapping real, protective motorcycle boots on your feet. — Bryan Campbell
Staub Dutch Oven
Save $185 Though frustratingly expensive, Staub Dutch ovens are among the most coveted in the cooking world. From a craftsmanship, prestige and performance perspective, the pots are on-par (if not better, for some people) than those made by Le Creuset.
More specifically, Staub’s ovens hold heat (they’re slightly heavier) and moisture (the lid is a significantly tighter fit) better than Le Creuset, which are good traits for stew and soup season, as consistent heat and moisture retention are critical to the finished dish’s taste.
Today on Food52, its 4-quart, $284 oven in matte black, cherry, turquoise or turmeric, is marked down to $99. The 4-quart is slightly smaller than the traditional 5.5- to 6-quart oven, but is plenty of room when cooking for two or three people.
Tivoli Audio Model One Radio
Save $67: Tivoli Audio’s Model One (
$150 $83) was released in the early 2000s and the company still sells the undoubtedly pretty tabletop radio. It has a handmade wood cabinet and a large tactile dial for switching between stations, and it looks like an antique. But the Model One also sounds wonderful for its size. It has a 3-inch full-range speaker and its tuner is actually able to strengthen signals, which is great for those who are in areas of poor reception.
Tumi Bags and Luggage
Save at least 20%:With the holiday travel season fast approaching, you’d be smart to check the structural integrity of your luggage and make any necessary updates soon. If you’re looking to get a new bag before heading to the airport next week, head over to East Dane today. Currently, a wide range of luggage and bags from respected brand Tumi are at least 20 percent off. What’s more, if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you’ll receive free three-day shipping on any order. So if your current backpack, duffel or rolling bag needs a replacement, don’t procrastinate any longer — three day shipping is still cutting it close. — John Zientek
Well, I can’t help you, there — not even a little bit. But I can draw your attention to the fact that this Seiko 5 dive watch is on sale on Massdrop for only $150. The Seiko 5 SNZH “Fifty Fathoms” is a 42mm, stainless steel-cased diver with a 23-jewel Seiko 7S36 automatic movement. Featuring polished block hour markers and sword hands done up in Lumibright, a 120-click unidirectional bezel and Arabic numbers, this is a simple, handsome day-date watch that’s water resistant down to 100m, which should be plenty for most divers. You also get a Hardlex crystal, display case back and stainless steel bracelet, and the watch is available in 3 colorways: blue, black and two-tone. — Oren Hartov
Leatherman Wave Plus Multi-Tool
Save 20%: Leatherman, like Kleenex and Band-Aid, is one of those brand names that has come to stand for the category of products it produces: multi-tools. That’s because we’ve collectively agreed that Leatherman produces some of the best available, and among the 50-plus tools in its arsenal, the Wave is the best-seller.
The Wave features all the tools one might imagine should be present in a multi-tool: serrated and plain-edge knives, pliers, scissors, a bottle and can opener, wire cutters, a screwdriver, a ruler, a file (for the “Plus” re-make Leatherman added replaceable wire cutters). Nothing overly-specialized or unnecessarily specific is present, just the essentials. It opens in a butterfly shape; it’s made of stainless steel; it is the classic Leatherman, which makes it the classic multi-tool.
Right now the Wave is on sale for 20 percent off at Amazon (and 10 percent off in black). The multi-tool is four inches when closed, weighs 8.5 ounces and comes with a classic leather sheath and a 25-year warranty. — Tanner Bowden
